We want you to be doing the hustle by knowing when to stand your ground and if it’s a good idea to take that fucking insurance thingy they keep mentioning!


Classic Blackjack

This is the one you should be playing for starters. It’s luckily the most popular anyway, but make sure that when you are on a table you search to make sure the term “Classic Blackjack” is written somewhere in the screen that you are playing in.

Perfect Pairs Blackjack

The PP version uses the regular rules as adhered to in classic blackjack with the exception of an extra side bet at the start of each hand.
