Blackjack Side Bets

Blackjack is always an exciting game, but that hasn’t stopped us adding even more ways to win. We offer two sides bets known as Perfect Pairs™ and 21+3™. Both use standard European rules, but offer players the chance to win at odds of up to 100:1. And to make things even better, you can bet from just $0.10.

The theoretical return to player (RTP) for the base Blackjack game is 99.34%.

Read on for more about the two additional available side bets:

Perfect Pairs™

Perfect Pairs™ is not a compulsory bet. It’s an optional extra, and the wager is considered separate from the main bet. Players win the bet if the two cards they are dealt make a pair. This can pay at odds ranging from 5:1 to 25:1. The odds will depend on multiple factors such as rank, suit and colour. Take a look at the table below for a full breakdown:

WagerOdds
Perfect Pair (matched suits, e.g. 9c-9c, Ad-Ad) 25:1
Coloured Pair (matched colours, e.g. 7c-7s, Qd-Qh) 15:1
Mixed Pair (matched ranks only, e.g. 6c-6h, Ks-Kd) 5:1

The theoretical return to player (RTP) from the Perfect Pairs™ side bet is 95.82%.

21+3™

21+3™ bets are also optional. This bet considers not just the player’s two cards, but also the dealer’s face-up card, to form a three-card hand. This can pay at odds ranging from 5:1 to 100:1. Take a look at the table below for a full breakdown:

WagerOdds
Suited Trips (e.g. Qs-Qs-Qs) 100:1
Straight Flush (e.g. 7d-8d-9d) 40:1
Three of a Kind (e.g. 3d-3h-3s) 30:1
Straight (e.g. 9c-10d-Jh) 10:1
Flush (e.g. 2h-6h-10h) 5:1

The theoretical return to player (RTP) from the 21+3™ side bet is 95.38%.
