The Most Exciting Blackjack in Shreveport
Hands down, Blackjack is the most popular and best known table game at the Eldorado

going over. If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer, you win. Draw an Ace with
a 10 or picture card and you have Blackjack. Blackjack is offered on levels 1 of
the casino, with the top action dealt in the comfort of our high-end area.
Shreveport Blackjack Rules and Information
Blackjack, also known as "21" is played on 30 tables at Eldorado Shreveport,
making it the casino's most played game. You have Blackjack when your first
two cards are an Ace and a 10-value card. (This pays 3 to 2.) Otherwise, the object
of the game is to reach a point total as close to 21 as possible without going over.
Hands that are closer to 21 than the dealer's win. Hands that are not closer to
21 than the dealer's or hands that accumulate a point total exceeding 21 lose. Jacks,
Queens and Kings have a face value of 10. Aces have a value of either one or 11.
If the dealer's total is 16 or less, he or she will take "hits" until
his or her cards total at least 17. If you and the dealer tie, it's a "push,"
and you don't win or lose.
Royal Match 21
Royal Match 21, a side bet for blackjack, has been around for years and is more popular
than ever. To begin each round, players make the standard Blackjack wager and the Royal Match wager. Players will then receive their first two cards, and if the cards are the same suit or a Royal Match (a King and Queen in suit), they win!
Bet the Set
Bet the Set "21" focuses on a blackjack player's first two cards, with the top hand winning amounts as high as 25 to 1. To begin each round, players make their standard blackjack wagers and the Bet the Set wager. Once each player has received his first two cards, the dealer settles all Bet the Set wagers. If a player has a pair, they win according to the posted paytable.
Note: All bonus payouts apply to the player's first two cards only.
Other rules to know:
- You may double down on any two cards except for 21. This is done by placing an additional
wager (up to the total amount of your initial wager) next to your original wager.
You will receive only one additional card.
- If your first two cards are a pair, you may split them into two hands by placing
an equal amount next to your original bet. If the next card makes a pair, you may
split again. Split Aces get only a one-card draw. A 10-value card on a split Ace
counts as 21, but not Blackjack.
- If the dealer's face-up card is an Ace, you may make an additional wager that
the dealer has Blackjack. Insurance bets are made by placing up to half your original
bet on the insurance line, prior to the dealer checking his or her facedown card.
If the dealer has Blackjack, your insurance bet pays 2 to 1. If you choose not to
get insurance and the dealer has Blackjack, you lose.
