To start playing, you will have to pick a poker chip and place it on one of the three positions. After that, you will just hit the green Deal button to start playing. The main objective is to beat the dealer’s hand (by getting as close as possible to 21 or hitting 21), but you can focus on other things by choosing some of the side bets. Keep in mind that you can place up to three bets at once. The casino chips that you can use start with €0.1 and end with €500. That’s the highest and lowest bet that players can use in this game.
On the left and right sides of the chips, you will notice a few buttons – undo, side bets, deal, and bet all. They are more or less self-explanatory. By clicking the black button with white lines on the left side, you will open a new menu where you can check the paytable and find more info about the game.
In its essence, the Blackjack Plus game by Felt Gaming is a classic blackjack game and if you're not sure how it works you can always learn blackjack rules here at GoodLuckMate. So, you can expect the standard deck of cards and layout. Aces are counted as 1 or 10 and the value depends on the strategy while the face cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are counted as 10 (just like 10s). The other cards have their face values.
Remember that if your blackjack hand is better than the dealer’s hand, you will double your total bet. In case they have the same value, you will get back your bet. If you win with a blackjack combo, the payout is 3 to 2. What makes this online blackjack game fun is the presence of six side bets. Each of them promises a different payout table.

Free spins are rare in online blackjack games and Blackjack Plus is not an exception. You will not find a Blackjack Plus free spins mode.

The first one is the Perfect Pairs side bet where you can win if the first two cards dealt to you are a pair of an identical face value. Next, we have the Lucky Ladies bet where you can win in case the first two cards you get make a total of 20 or display a Queen. Then we have the 21+3 side bet. Win this bet by making a three-card poker hand highlighted in the paytable designed for this bet with the help of your first two cards and the dealer’s up card.
Thanks to the Lucky Lucky side bet, you can win nice prizes, but first, you have to win by making a combination that’s worth 19, 20, or 21 with the help of your first two cards and the dealer’s up playing card.
