Blackjack Perfect Pairs is one of the most popular blackjack variations. The game remains the same as the traditional game, with the main difference being that there is a side bet that can win a jackpot. This bet can also provide a 30-to-1 payout per hand! The players play the traditional way and place the extra bet on a perfect pair which can be up to $25. If the first two cards are a pair, the bonus for pairs is paid out.
The game rules are a lot like the traditional blackjack rules, but if the player wins or loses in the game against the dealer, the side bet may bring him an extra win.
Each player is dealt two cards including the dealer. The cards of the players are dealt face up, while the dealer's cards are dealt one face up and another facing down. A blackjack is paid 3-to-2 immediately. The dealer has to stand on 17 or above and hit if he has 16 or below.
After the cards are dealt, the dealer checks for blackjack and then pays out any Perfect pair bets. The players that have a pair with their first two cards and placed the side bet win. The side bets that lost are removed from the table.
