The Card Stream

Live Common Draw Blackjack is common draw game, which means all players at the table play the game from a common set of cards placed on the table. This common set of cards is called the card stream.

After the close of betting, the dealer deals one card face up to themselves, and two cards face up into the card stream. The dealer's first card is not part of the stream.

Based on the value of the two cards dealt into the card stream and the dealer's card, you and each player at the table will decide how to proceed with the hand according to Blackjack rules.

If you decide to hit, double, or split, the next card or cards dealt into the stream are counted toward those decisions.

If you decide to stand, or your hand busts, cards may continue to be dealt into the card stream as other players at the table have not yet completed their hands.

Once all players have concluded their hands, the dealer draws a card or cards to their own hand. The game round is finished when the dealer concludes their hand. The dealer then clears the table and all winning bets are paid.

Playing Your Hand

Number cards (2-10) count as face value, aces count as either 1 or 11, and kings, queens, and jacks count as 10.
A Soft hand is a hand with an ace that can be counted as either 1 or 11 without busting.
A Hard hand is a hand without an ace, or a hand with an ace that can only have a value of 1.

After the first 2 cards are dealt into the card stream, the action timer begins to count down. You have 3 available options:

Depending on your cards and the dealer's card, you may additionally have the options to split, take even money or take insurance.

Split
If the first two cards in the card stream have the same value, you can split them into separate hands.Splitting doubles your initial bet, and you play both hands, one after the other.

After splitting Aces you will receive only one additional card for each split hand. For all split hands except split aces, you can hit multiple times.

In a split hand, an Ace and a card with a value of 10 will be counted as 21 and not Blackjack.

Insurance.
If the dealer's first card is an Ace, you can buy insurance. Insurance costs half the value of the initial bet and pays 2 to 1 if the dealer gets Blackjack. If you take the insurance and the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance bet.
