Community Card


Play Community Card Blackjack where dealers deal their cards while players place their bets from their very own play station. This innovative gaming platform is composed of a high-definition LCD display at individual play stations and a dealer assist Blackjack table. This form of blackjack gives players more hands per hour and lower buy-ins.

Each individual play station offers help, rules, options, auto-repeat betting options, and a history of past
game outcomes.

The object of the game is to get a card total higher than the dealers without going over a count of 21.
You play against the dealer, not against other players at the table. To win, your hand must be 21 or less, but higher than what the dealer has.

Before the cards are dealt, each player must put up a bet. Bet minimum and maximums will be displayed on the player station. To make a bet, simply place your wager (chips) in the appropriate betting field.


Placing bets is permitted as long as there is a message on the screen saying “BETS PLEASE” or


Chip value is chosen by pressing on one of the chips. Chip value is displayed on the button DENOM.
Main bet minimum and maximums are displayed on the player screen.


Player can place bets by choosing the chip with desired value and then press the field on the
Blackjack table (marked “BET HERE”), or simply drag-and-drop the chip to the spot you would like to play.


Pressing the same spot on the table again increases the bet for the currently selected chip value.


Player can cancel their last bet by pressing the “CLEAR LAST BET” button.


If more than one bet has been placed on the table, the player can cancel all bets by pressing the
“CLEAR ALL BETS” button.

When the player presses the “REPEAT LAST BET” button after the end of the game, it will repeat the bet from the previous game.


If button is pressed and held for 3 seconds, “AUTO REPEAT BET” option is enabled. This option auto repeats the last bet until the button is pressed again.


After you have placed the main bet, you may add any side bets that are offered. Side bet minimum and maximums are displayed on the player screen.

After placing a bet, you are dealt two cards face up. The dealer also gets two cards, but only one of the dealer’s cards are face up. You are then given the option of standing with the cards you have or hitting to take another card. You may hit as often as you like but if you go over 21 you bust and the dealer wins automatically. The dealer will not take any cards until all players at the table have made their selections.


Once stand has been selected or the timer expires and defaults to stand, players may not reverse their decision.


Now the dealer shows their face down card. The dealer must hit until the hand has a value of hard 17 or greater.


If the dealer exceeds 21 while taking additional cards, the dealer busts and all remaining player bets are paid. The pay off if the player wins is even money (1 to 1).

Dealer Stands: On all hard 17’s or greater up to 21. Table will be marked with respect to soft 17’s.


Blackjack: A total of 21 with your initial first two cards. This beats all other hands except for a dealers blackjack and pays 6:5 as posted.


Splitting: If the first two cards have the same value you may split into two separate hands. The player must place an additional bet equal to the original bet. All split hands must receive at least one card. Double down after split allowed, except when splitting Aces. Re-splitting is not offered.


Split Aces: Receives only one card per hand. Players may split Aces one time, totaling (2) hands. Splitting Aces will receive only one card and will not have the option to receive additional cards.


Insurance: Separate wager on first two cards that equal half of player’s original wager; only available when dealer shows an Ace up and pays 2 to 1 if dealer has natural 21. If dealer does not have a natural 21, the insurance bet is lost by the player.


10 Card Charlie: If, during the normal process of play, you hit on a single hand eight times for a total of ten cards without busting, you will automatically win and will get paid even money.


Ranking of Cards: Ace = 1 or 11, 2-9 = face value, 10 and Face = 10


Normal Winning Bets: Pay 1 to 1


Ties: Push. Do not win or lose.

Multi hand blackjack offers players the ability to play up to 3 hands at once.


Before each new hand begins, you can place a wager on either 1, 2, or all 3 of the clearly marked betting areas.


If playing more than 1 hand, the wagers may be different amounts on each hand. When playing, you can play any or all of the betting spots as long as the overall minimum bet has been made. After a bet for a hand has been made, side bets that correspond to that hand may be added.


The starting 2 cards for all 3 hands and the dealer hand will be dealt, regardless of whether there are wagers staked for all 3 hands.


Since this is a community game, the starting 2 cards for all 3 blackjack hands will be the same for all players. In the decision phase, you will have the option to act on any of the hands (it does not have to be in a certain order). The unique aspect of multi-hand community card blackjack gives you the feeling of choosing where the next card goes.


  • If the action is a hit/split/double, the time limit will stop and you will wait for the dealer to draw a card. From there, the decision phase time limit starts over with all decision options available to you on all active hands.
    If the action is to stay on one hand, you will need to make a decision on another hand within the same time limit. The decision phase ends when all hands stay or all hands have busted.
  • When a split hand is made, “stand” on the one split hand is considered an action. This will make the next card to the other split hand automatically. You will be allowed to act on any hand if available from that point.


A single hit/split/double decision can be made per round and will end actions for that round.

  • If you stand without making a hit/split/double decision, the play station will prompt you to continue making decisions.
  • If no hit/split/double decisions are made before the timer runs out all hands will default to stand. Standing on a hand is not considered a round ending decision.


When a stand decision has been made on your hand(s), any further community cards dealt in that round will be considered burn cards.


When all of the players have finished their decisions for their hand(s) and have elected to stand, the dealer will turn over the face down card, and finish dealing the house hand according to standard blackjack rules.
