Gaming 101: Free Bet Blackjack

Date of Post: Sep 21, 2016

Free Bet Blackjack is now available at Four Winds Casino New Buffalo and allows players to double down and split for free!  

How to Play

Enjoy the traditional game of Blackjack with a twist when playing at the Free Bet Blackjack designated tables.

1.)    The game starts like any other, by making a bet against the dealer.

2.)    The player and the dealer will get two starting cards, at that time the player will have the opportunity to fold, hit, stay, split, or double down.

3.)    If the player decides to stay, hit, or fold, the game will proceed as traditional blackjack.

4.)    If a player decides to split or double down using the Free Bet option, the dealer will place a special lammer next to the player’s original wager. If the player wins the hand, they get paid as if they had made a traditional split or double, even though they did not put any additional money at risk.


Free Split

You may free split any pairs, except for 10-value cards. Free re-splitting is also allowed.

Free Double

You may free double any hard two-card total of 9, 10 or 11. Free doubling after splitting is allowed, when the above doubling rule is followed.

Push 22

If the dealer busts with a point total of 22, any bets you have left in action are pushes.

Note: Player blackjacks are paid before the dealer hits out their hand, so they are exempt from the Push 22 rule.

Pot of Gold

Pot of Gold is a side bet which is betting on the player receiving lammers on that hand. To make a Pot of Gold bet, place wager on the Pot of Gold bet spot. The more lammers you collect during that hand by splitting or doubling, the more you win. Payouts are based on the total number of Free Bet coins collected per blackjack hand. See paytable for odds. Note: All Pot of Gold wagers lose to a dealer blackjack.
