GTA blackjack online basic rules

The objective of blackjack is to beat the dealer´s hand without getting more than 21 points in your hand. Four standard 52-card decks are used in this game, and they are shuffled at the beginning of each hand. The card values are: Ace is worth 1 or 11 points, face cards are all worth 10 points, and 2 to 10 are worth their pip value. 

The dealer must stand on soft 17, this means the dealer will continue taking cards until they hit at least soft 17 or go bust. If the dealer and the player both have blackjack, this will result in a push. When a player is drawn seven cards without going over 21 will automatically win. And when the dealer´s face up card is an ace, insurance isn’t offered. 

Double down: after a player has been dealt their two initial cards, they can double their bet in return for one additional card, this is also available on both hands after splitting.
Split: you can split your hand once if the first two cards have the same value, the same bet amount must be bet for the split hand.

Payout: GTA casino blackjack pays 3 to 2 of the bet value, this means that if you bet $100 and you get a Blackjack, you will win 1.5 times your bet, giving you a total of $250. Other winning bets pay even money, if you bet $100 you get $100.

Soft Hand: the combination of an ace with a card other than a ten-card is known as a “soft hand” because the player can count the ace as a 1 or 11. A soft hand cannot go bust by taking another card. Bets limits: Minimum: 10 Chips. Maximum: 5000 Chips.

Can you play with real money at the GTA online casino?

You cannot gamble real money at the GTA casino. You can only bet the chips you earn or buy with your GTA$; and your winnings will always remain in the game, available as virtual money for you to buy in-game stuff.
