Zappit Blackjack

Game Description

Blackjack games are always a crowd favorite and Zappit Blackjack is no exception. Not only is this game easy to learn, it also guarantees endless fun and entertainment. Your aim is simple and exactly the same as classic Blackjack: get as close to 21 without going higher than 21, while having a higher hand than the dealer. If you’re dealt a hand with a hard total of 15, 16 or 17, you can choose to hit the “zap” button instead, which will swap your cards for two new ones. Prepare to zap, zap, zap and make your playing experience an electrifying one!

  • The player may surrender any first two cards.
  • Split aces receive only one card.
  • No re-splitting of aces.
  • A split ace and a ten-value card is not a Blackjack.
  • When a player is dealt a hard total of 15, 16 or 17, they have the option to hit the “zap” button, giving them two new cards.
  • A player wins when they hold a score of 21 or less but greater than the dealer's final total or they achieve a score of 21 or less when the dealer's final score exceeds 22. 
  • If the player holds a score of 21 or less and the dealer busts with a 22, it is considered a push as opposed to a win and the player’s original bet is returned to him.

Buttons

  • Rules – Allows players to view the rules of the game. The player should select the “rules” button in order to see the rules. 
  • Menu – Allows players to view the settings menu. The player should select the “menu” button in order to see the settings menu.
  • Zap – When the player is dealt a hard total of 15, 16 or 17, hitting the “zap” button allows them to exchange their hand for a new one.
  • Surrender – If a player decides to surrender, 50% of their bet is returned to them and the other half goes to the house.
  • Split – Used to split the first two cards dealt into two separate hands when they match. The player can play up to three hands at one time except when they split two Aces. Then, only one additional card can be dealt for each hand. A hand total of 21 after the player splits aces is considered a 21, not a blackjack.
  • Double – After being dealt the first two cards the player can decide to double down. The bet on the hand is doubled and the player is dealt one additional card.
  • Stand – Used when the player wants to keep the hand they’ve been dealt. This happens automatically if the player hits 21 or doubles down.
  • Hit – Used when the player wants to be dealt another card. The player can hit as many times as they wish unless the total of the cards equals or exceeds 21.
  • Clear Bet – Clears the previous bet amount.
  • Rebet - When a hand is complete the player has the option to rebet the amount they had previously bet.
  • Insurance – If the dealer is showing an ace, the player is offered a supplemental bet known as insurance. A wager of exactly half of the original bet is placed on the table. If the dealer has blackjack, the house pays the insurance bet 2 to 1. If the dealer does not have blackjack, the player loses the insurance bet and their initial bet is then settled by comparing their cards with the dealer’s. If the dealer and the player both have blackjack, the game is considered a push and the player gets the amount won by taking insurance, called even money.
  • Deal – Used to start the game after the player has placed their bet.
