- When you have played your final hand the dealer then reveals the dealer’s face down card and may draw additional cards, in accordance with the rules.

Blackjack pro is the variant of Blackjack with the following rules:
- Eight decks of cards are used in this game, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.
- Aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards count as 10 and number cards at their face value.
- The player may not split a Split hand.
- Only one card is drawn to each Ace in a split hand.
- The player may double after splitting.
- If the dealer has Ace as first card, the dealer will check for Blackjack before you draw your third card.
- Ace and 10-point card after a split are considered 21 and not blackjack.
- Blackjack pays 1.5 times the bet amount (3 to 2).
- If the total value of the player’s cards is closer to 21 than the Dealer’s after the dealer has stopped taking cards, the player wins the bet amount (1 to 1).
- If the total of the player’s cards is more than 21, the player’s hand has “Too Many” and the player automatically loses the bet for that hand.
- If the player and the dealer have the same point total (17 to 21), neither of them wins and the player’s bet is returned to the player in a “Push”.
- The dealer always draws to 16. The dealer stands when the dealer’s hand has a value of 17 or greater (including soft total). The dealer does not draw when the player has “too many”.
- Blackjack beats a score of 21.
A hand containing an Ace that can be counted as 11 without too many. For example, Ace-6 is soft 17.
A hand containing an Ace that can only be counted as 1 because counting it as 11 would make the hand exceed 21. For example, Ace-6-10 is hard 17.
If your first two cards have the same value, then you can split them into 2 separate hands. The second hand will have the same bet as the hand it was split from. You will then draw additional cards to each hand. You may draw as many cards as you like on each split hand, unless you split 2 aces(in which case you receive only 1 additional card for each ace).If you receive an ace and a 10-value card in a split hand, it is considered 21 and not Blackjack.
You can double your bet on a hand before you take a third card. After doubling a bet, a final card will be dealt to you automatically. You can double on all your hands, if you wish. You can also double your bet on a split hand.
If the dealer’s first face up card is an Ace, you will be given a chance to insure each of your regular bets against the dealer having Blackjack. If you take Insurance, then an amount equal to half your original bet will be deducted from your balance and placed separately on the table. If the dealer has Blackjack, you are paid 2 to 1 on your insurance. This way you do not lose your original bet (because you receive the value of your original bet plus the insurance amount back). If the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance amount.
- You can insure your hand by clicking YES. If you don't want to insure your hand, click NO.
If the dealer has an Ace, and the player has a BLACKJACK, the player has the option of “EVEN MONEY”. Click on YES to choose this option, the player will receive the same amount (1:1) of his Blackjack, without the Dealers face-down card even being exposed, thus protecting himself from a possible Dealer’s Blackjack. The player may also click on NO to continue playing without using the EVEN MONEY option. If the Dealer does not have a blackjack, the player will be paid at a normal relation of 3:2 on his Blackjack.
- Only if the first two cards dealt are an Ace and a 10 valued card the hand is BLACKJACK and pays 3:2 if it beats the dealer. But if the dealer has BLACKJACK too the result is PUSH.
- If you have an A and a 10 valued card after splitting the hand is value 21 only and not BLACKJACK. If the 21 valued hand wins it is paid at odds of 1:1.
- When the dealer hand is complete the results are displayed on both the dealer's and the player's cards.

A blackjack, or 'natural', comprises a total of 21 in your first two cards. If you split a pair of Aces or 10 valued cards and then have a A with a 10 valued card this will not count as blackjack, but rather a total of 21. Your blackjack beats any dealer total except a dealer's blackjack. If both you and the dealer have a blackjack, the hand is a tie orPUSH, and nobody wins or loses.
Your total is greater than dealer's, but less than or equal to 21.
The totals of your hand(-s) and of the dealer are the same.
Offered on the dealer's Ace to insure your hand against the dealer receiving a blackjack. It costs 50% of the bet amount for that hand.
If the dealer gets a blackjack, the insurance bet pays 2:1 and you lose the initial bet. If the dealer does not get a blackjack, you lose the insurance bet, and the game continues for the initial bet amount.
This option is offered when the dealer has an Ace and when player has a blackjack. By choosing this option, the player will receive the same amount of his Blackjack.
- The payout format used here means that when you win, you get back your bet plus an amount that is a multiple of your bet. Example: If a bet of 1 is placed on any hand, and you win a Blackjack, then 1 (bet) + 1.5 (win) = 2.5 win amount is credited to your balance for that hand.
