There are four versions of blackjack in the software:
Blackjack – This is a standard blackjack game where players may double any two cards, double down after the split and split pairs one time. There is a single, double and six-deck version. The dealer stays on all 17’s.
There are three side bets. The King’s Bounty rewards players for receiving a 20 count on the first two cards. The jackpot is two kings of spades. There is a Bet the Set wager that pays players when a pair is dealt on the first two cards. The single deck game pays 15-1 on a pair. The double deck game awards 25-1 on a suited pair and 10-1 a regular pair. The six-deck game pays 15-1 on a suited pair and 10-1 on all other pairs. The Royal Match side bet pays players when two suited cards are dealt. The jackpot is a suited king and queen against the dealer’s suited king and queen.
Pro Blackjack – Pro Blackjack offers the same rules as standard blackjack without the side bets.
Player’s Suite Blackjack – Player’s Suite Blackjack is a high limit version of standard blackjack.
Win Win Blackjack – Win Win Blackjack is a traditional blackjack game with an unusual side bet. The Rescue Bonus side bet is optional. The bet must be placed before cards are dealt. If wagered, a player that busts will receive a five-card hand based off of the last card dealt that busted the hand and four additional cards. The hand is then graded based on the best poker hand it generates. The bonus bet pushes when a player stands on his first two cards, including a dealt blackjack. The bet only loses when the dealer has a blackjack or the player draws but never busts.
There are three roulette versions. There is a standard roulette game played European style. This means that there is only one zero. A player that makes an even money wager will receive half of his wager back if the ball lands on zero. All other bets not on the zero lose. There is also Roulette Royale that features French side bets.
The most exciting roulette game is Double Bonus Spin Roulette. This game offers just 12 numbers and one zero. If the ball lands in the yellow bonus slot then two additional numbers are drawn. This creates a situation where players may win on multiple numbers on the same spin.

Betfair offers Deuces Wild, Bonus Poker, Double Bonus Poker and two versions of Jacks or Better.

Betfair Poker Bonus
Betfair offers a $25 New Jersey online poker bonus. It is what is considered a nine times Ongame bonus. This means that players must earn nine Player Points for every $1 in bonus.

The Ongame Network uses a proprietary rake method on its international site. This formula rates players based on skill and awards points accordingly. We have attempted to reach Betfair using multiple platforms to inquire if this formula is used in New Jersey. We have yet to receive a reply.
