  • After all wagers are placed on the 3-to-1 Blackjack circle, the dealer distributes two cards to each player and to himself/herself in the traditional blackjack fashion, where one dealer card is face up and the other face down.
  • The dealer then checks to see if any participating player has a two-card hand of the same colour. If they are not the same colour the 3-to-1 Blackjack bet is lost and collected immediately by the dealer.
  • If the player's cards are the same colour the blackjack game continues as normal.
  • The player then has to win the traditional hand to win the 3-to-1 Blackjack wager.
  • Once all traditional Blackjack processes have been performed the resulting 3-to-1 Blackjack wagers are resolved.






Additional Rules



If the player's first two cards are the same colour and the traditional Blackjack hand is a push, the 3 to 1 Blackjack wager is a push.



If the player splits, the 3 to 1 Blackjack wager stays with the first hand and the player cannot put up and additional 3 to 1 Blackjack bet.


Double Down

If the player doubles down, the 3 to 1 Blackjack wager stays with the hand and must win. The player cannot put up an additional 3 to 1 Blackjack bet.
