Read our expert guide to quantum blackjack to learn the rules of this live dealer game, pro strategies, and where to play for real money.

## What is Quantum Blackjack Live?

If you love playing online blackjack for real money, then you’re certainly going to enjoy quantum blackjack! A new addition to the live dealer casino game lineup, this variant of live dealer blackjack adds a multiplier system to the classic game which can result in truly life-changing wins!

At the start of a round, up to three additional cards are drawn, each of which are assigned a multiplier (either 3x, 5x, or 10x). If a winning hand utilizes one of these cards, then the payout is multiplied by the value of that card.

For example: if the five of hearts is drawn with a 10x multiplier and your winning hand contains a five of hearts, then your payout would be multiplied by 10.

If that wasn’t enough for you, the multipliers can actually stack. So if your winning hand has cards associated with both the 5x and 10x multipliers, your total payout would be 50x!

If you’re incredibly lucky, the maximum multiplier can be as high as 100x if you happen to score two cards each with a 10x multiplier. As you can see, this blackjack variant is potentially the most lucrative online blackjack game around!

## How to Play Quantum Blackjack

Quantum blackjack plays out in almost the exact same way as a standard game of live dealer blackjack. An example round would look like this:

1. Before any cards are dealt, the player places their wager (including any side bets)
2. The random number generator then selects up to three cards which are then assigned a multiplier (between 3x and 10x)
3. The dealer then deals two cards to themselves and to the player
4. The player can then choose whether to hit or stand, as in a standard game of blackjack
5. If the player has a winning hand and it contains a multiplier card, then total payout will be multiplied by that value. If the winning hand does not contain a multiplier, then you receive the standard payout
6. However, if the dealer busts with three cards, the round is considered a push.

## Quantum Blackjack Strategy

A solid blackjack strategy can help set you up for success when playing quantum blackjack. Here are some pro strategies which can assist first-time quantum blackjack players:

### Capitalize on Strong Hands

Knowing when to split or double down can make the difference between small wins and truly massive wins: especially when multipliers are in play.

Sometimes an aggressive strategy is necessary when playing real money online casino games.

### Manage Your Bankroll

A casino bankroll management strategy is essential to your success when playing any online casino games for real money.

No single bet should represent more than 5% of your bankroll. Remember to stick to you bankroll strategy and never chase losses.

### Don't Take Insurance

If the dealer’s face up card is an Ace, then you’ll have the opportunity to take an ‘insurance’ side bet which pays out in the event the dealer has blackjack.

Do not take this bet. Not only does it increase your wagering amount, the house has a 6% advantage on these bets: so it’s best to avoid taking insurance.

## Quantum Blackjack Side Bets

Quantum blackjack offers a couple of side bets which can help boost your potential payout. Unfortunately, the side bets are not subject to multipliers and do decrease the RTP. So consider your bankroll before taking the following side bets:

### Perfect Pairs

This side bet pays out if your first two cards are a pair. The payout varies depending on the type of pair you have:

• If your first two cards are of the same rank, but different colors and suits, your payout will be 6:1.
• If your first two cards are of the same rank and the same color, the payout will be 12:1.
• If you have a perfect pair (same rank and suit), the payout will be 25:1.

### 21+3

This side bet is a hybrid between blackjack and online poker. If your two cards and the dealer’s face up card combine to make a valid poker hand, you’ll win!

The potential payout for this side bet can be as high as 100:1 for a suited three of a kind.

The potential hands for this side bet are as follows:

• Flush (three cards in the same suit)
• Straight (three cards in consecutive order)
• Three of a Kind (three cards of the same rank)
• Straight Flush (three cards of the same suit in consecutive order)
• Suited Three of Kind (three cards of the same rank and the same suit)
