Perfect Pairs Blackjack

Perfect Pairs Blackjack is actually the standard game of blackjack to which some extra features have been added, making it more exciting. The variant follows the same rules of standard blackjack, the only difference being the addition of a side bet, which gives players the opportunity to win some extra money. Players of Perfect Pairs Blackjack need to create a hand of value 21, but without exceeding it. In addition to the usual real money blackjack payouts, you stand the chance of winning the perfect pairs bonus too.

You can win three varieties of perfect pairs in Perfect Pairs Blackjack—perfect pair, colored pair, and mixed pair. A perfect pair comprises two equal cards such as two sevens of hearts. A colored pair comprises two cards of equal value and same color such as a seven of spades and a seven of clubs. A mixed pair comprises two cards of equal value and different colors such as a seven of hearts and a seven of clubs.

If you place a perfect pairs side bet while placing the usual  real money blackjack bets, you are betting that the hand dealt to you will comprise a pair. You will lose your perfect pairs bet if you do not get a pair; however, if you do get a pair, you will be paid according to the type of pair you have got. Accordingly, if you get a perfect pair, you will get a payout of 30:1; if you get a colored pair, you will get a payout of 10:1; and if you get a mixed pair, you will get a payout of 5:1.

The rest of Perfect Pairs Blackjack is played just like any other game of blackjack. The dealer will deal a hand of 2 face-up cards to the players and a face-up and a face-down card to himself. Players should create a hand equaling 21 or more than the dealer’s hand, but without exceeding 21. The Perfect Pairs side bet has nothing to do with the rest of the game, the nature of the dealer’s hand, or the rest of the blackjack payouts.

If you get a blackjack or a hand that equals 21, you will win. In case of a tie, your active cards get pushed. In case of Perfect Pairs Blackjack, you can double down once and split the first two cards by placing an additional bet that is equal in value to the original bet and play two hands simultaneously. You can either continue to hit or choose to stand.

The dealer is required as per the rules of Perfect Pairs Blackjack to hit on 16, stand on 17, hit on soft 17, and stand on soft 18. Perfect Pairs Blackjack for real money also comes with an insurance bet, an additional bet placed by players on the surmise that the dealer will get blackjack. You can place the insurance bet if the dealer’s up-card turns out to be an ace. An insurance bet is half the ante bet, and if you win it, you will get a payout of 2:1.
