Hot Streak Blackjack is a traditional game of Blackjack with an optional Hot Streak side bet which rewards you for multiple winning hands in a row. You may have seen the Hot Streak bonus been used before in a similar way on Hot Streak Roulette, here the concept is the same, with a progressive amount accumulating for each successive winning hand.
Hot Streak Blackjack pays 2/1 for a Blackjack and follows the same rules as the traditional game; insurance will be offered if the dealers up card is an Ace, the closest to 21 without going over is a winner. Additionally there is a Six Card Charlie which is any player hand that makes up 21 or less in six cards. Six Card Charlie beats any dealer hand except Blackjack.
The main reason you would play Hot Streak Blackjack is for the bonus game, however as it is optional you could have a standard game of Blackjack between playing the side bet without leaving the table.
At the start of the game, place your chip value on the Hot Streak side bet to activate the bonus game. With each winning hand you progress up the cash multipliers. A tie leave the side bet stake where it is, with a losing hand returning your side bet to zero. If you split your hand, both hands must win for it to progress. Likewise, both hands need to lose for the side bet to lose. Should one hand win and the other lose, the stake will remain in place as if it were a draw.
As you progress, additional side bets can be placed at the beginning of the progression however you cannot add to or take away from an already active side bet. The goal is to win at least four hands in a row to reach the top of the progression, so slightly easier than Hot Streak Roulette.
Once you are at the top of the progression, any further winning hands will continue to pay at the highest level until you lose a hand.
This is where it gets interesting, as it is possible to win ten or more hands in a row, so the side bet has the potential to award very big bucks.
