Blackjack, also known as 21, is one of the most popular casino games in South Africa

Blackjack also known as 21 is one of the most popular casino games. Blackrock has 4 Blackjack Tables. The minimum bet on the Tables is R50 and the maximum bet is R4,000. Blackjack Elite offers a progressive jackpot starting from R50 000.

The Aim of the Game

The aim of Blackjack is to beat the dealer by drawing cards with a value as close to 21 as possible but without going past it.
If your hand is better than the dealer’s you win; if it adds up to more than 21, you go “bust” and automatically forfeit your bet.

The Table

The Blackjack table seats up to seven players. The layout has seven “betting areas” where bets must be placed before the cards are dealt.

The Deal

One card is dealt face up and clockwise to each of the players – including the dealer – followed by a second card, also face up, to each of the players, but not to the dealer.

The Play

Once you have been dealt your two cards, you have a choice of what to do next: Stand, by telling the dealer not to give you any more cards, normally by saying, “stand” or Draw.


If the dealer’s first card is an Ace, you can insure your bet against the dealer getting a Blackjack by placing an insurance bet (up to half the value of your initial bet) on the table’s insurance line after your second card is dealt, but before the dealer draws any more cards. If the dealer draws a Blackjack, your box bet will lose, but your insurance bet will be paid at 2 to 1. However, if the dealer does not draw a 10 or a picture card, you lose your insurance bet.
