What Online Blackjack is All About
Blackjack is a centuries-old card game, and in all that time, that goal of the game has remained the same. To win, you must beat the dealer to a hand of 21 without the value of your hand exceeding the number.
The game gets its first mention on the pages of a short story by Don Quixote author Miguel de Cervantes. Rinconete y Cortadillo features men who cheat at ventiuna, a version of Blackjack played with a deck that contains no 8s or 9s.
When you play Online Blackjack, you will be dealt 2 face-up cards once you have placed your opening bet. In those games based on the European style, the dealer gets 1 face-up card and cannot check for a Blackjack.
In games based on the American style of play, the dealer also gets 2 cards at the initial deal, one of which will be face-down. If the face-up card is an Ace or a 10, the dealer can check for a Blackjack before you even make your first move!
Tips for Playing Online Blackjack
Blackjack is one of the few casino games where emerging victorious does not rely on luck alone. Various tips can improve not only your chances of beating the dealer, but taking the experience of playing online Blackjack to a whole new level.
Stand and play your hand as you have it if your cards are worth 17 points, and the dealer has a 7; if you have a 12 and the dealer has a 5 or a 6; and if your hand is worth 13 points when the dealer’s is a 2 or 3.
Always split Aces and 8s, and, if the online Blackjack game allows it, split cards with the same value.
Double down when you have an Ace and the dealer has anything other than a 2, or if you have a hand worth 10 or 11 points.
Remember that, when it comes to Multi-hand online Blackjack, you place a separate bet for every hand you play. This is handy to remember for when you want some quick 21 action, especially if you are playing the game at our casino on your smartphone or tablet.
Don’t make online Blackjack betting systems a habit. While a few systems do see big payouts every once in a while, they are also known among pro 21 players for being one of the fastest ways in which you could blow your bankroll before you are actually ready to call it a night.
