Blackjack | Little River Casino Resort


The object of blackjack is to beat the dealer by getting a count as close to 21 as possible, without going over 21. Little River Casino Resort offers Perfect Pairs Blackjack and Two Deck Pitch Blackjack.

How to Play Blackjack

The object of blackjack is to have cards totaling less than or equal to 21 and higher than the dealer’s total.  If you’re closer to 21 than the dealer, you win.  If you go over 21 your hand is a bust and you lose.  Match the dealer and it’s a tie and the player receives their bet back, also known as a push.  Face cards count as 10 while Aces are 1 or 11, player’s choice.



Make a bet in the betting circle.


The dealer gives each player two cards. The dealer gets two cards, one face down and the other face up.


If you have less than 21 and would like another card, ask or signal for a hit. You may hit until you're satisfied with your total. At that time, the dealer will reveal his total.


  1. Dealer hits soft 17.
  2. Double Down on any two cards.
  3. Aces may only be split one time and only one card per ACE. The player may Double Down for a third card.
  4. We also offer perfect pair and 2 deck pitch.


Doubling Down: If after the deal you feel you can win with the first two cards and only one more card, you may double your bet.

Splitting Pairs: If the first two cards you are dealt have the same value, you can split the two cards and play each hand individually. You must bet the same amount on the split hand as you did on the original hand. If your next card is of equal value to the first pair, you may split again. Splitting pairs may be done up to a total of four hands. Aces may be split only once. You may also "Double Down" on the first two cards of each hand after the split, except when splitting Aces.

Insurance: If the dealer's up card is an Ace, you can take insurance. You're betting that the dealer's facedown card will be of ten-value. You may bet one-half of your original wager, but a winning insurance bet pays 2 to 1. If the dealer does not have a blackjack, the insurance bet is taken and the game continues.

Perfect Pairs: Perfect Pairs is an optional side bet placed at the same time as the opening wagers in the basic game. The Perfect Pairs wager means that the first two cards dealt to a hand will be a pair of the same value (for example, a pair of twos, threes, four etc).

Two Deck Pitch: Two Deck Pitch is played just like blackjack but with two decks. It has the same rules as regular blackjack.
