What are the Rules of Lightning Blackjack Live Casino Game?

Just like regular blackjack, the aim of the game in Lightning Blackjack is to beat the dealer with a hand equal (or as close to) 21 as possible. Number cards are worth their face value, while face cards equal ten. Ace is worth either 1 or 11.

After receiving two cards, you can decide to hit or stand. If you hit, the dealer issues you with another card. You can hit as many times as you like, but be careful – if you exceed 21, you go bust. When you stand, the dealer reveals both cards and attempts to hit 21.

Now, in addition to your standard blackjack bet, you can pay the lightning fee in this game to qualify for the multiplier win. It only becomes available if you win a hand, as the lightning multiplier is only available on consecutive wins.

The value of the multiplier is randomly determined each round and can be as follows:

  • 4-17 – 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 6x

  • 18 – 2x, 3, 4x, 5x, 6x, or 8x

  • 19 – 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x, or 12x

  • 20 – 2x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 10x, or 15x

  • 21 – 2x, 5x, 6x, 8x, 12x, or 20x

  • Blackjack – 2x, 5x, 8x, 12x, 15x, or 25x

The random multiplier is assigned to the standard blackjack payout of 1:1 or 3:2 if you win with blackjack.
