Blackjack is everything that is good about casino gaming, it is a fun, rewarding and exciting table game that is as classy as it is entertaining.
Hugely popular in New Zealand, the game is based on luck coupled with strategy and judgement and demands excellent decision making. Originally played in European countries such as France and Spain in the 17th century, Blackjack has become even more popular since being introduced to a whole new audience online.
The action can be fast paced and Blackjack is the ideal game for those who enjoy a challenge as well as the opportunity to win big. One of the reasons that the game has seen such a resurgence in New Zealand over the last few years is the incredibly flexible betting range, players can bet from as little as $1, right up to a few hundred dollars.
The goal in Blackjack is to beat the house by building a hand with a total of as close to 21 as possible. Cards in the deck are worth their face value, with Jack, Queen and King being worth ten each and the Ace either one or eleven. Your hand’s score is determined by adding the value of the first two cards you are dealt.
Once the dealer has dealt two cards to you both, you will be asked to either “hit” or “stand” and this is where the strategy comes in. You need to use your judgement to determine how strong you feel your hand is and whether or not you think the dealer can match your score. Remember, you need to be as close to 21 as possible, so if your score is low, you have the option to “hit” which means the dealer will deal you another card.
If the combined value of your cards exceeds 21, you have gone “bust” and will lose your stake. If you feel your hand is strong enough that the dealer cannot match or better it, you can “stand” and the dealer will then have to try to beat the value of your hand.
