Blackjack has been one of the world’s most popular card games for centuries and is a subtle game of skill, chance and strategy that makes it perfect for online players looking for a challenge.
With plenty of rewards on offer and the chance to beat the house, Blackjack is a richly detailed and thrilling table game that in many ways embodies everything that casino play is about; exciting gaming, big winnings and fast paced fun.
Sometimes known as “21,” Blackjack has its origins in Spain and France where similar games have been played since the 17th century. The aim of the game in Blackjack is to beat the house with a hand that scores as close to 21 as possible, without ever exceeding this maximum number. Should the value of a player’s hand exceed 21, they are said to be “Bust” and will lose their stake.
All the cards in the deck are worth their number values except for face cards (Jack, Queen, King) which are all worth 10, and the Ace which can be worth either one or eleven.
The Dealer will initially deal two cards and based on the combined value of these cards, the player must decide whether to “stand” or “hit”. If the combined value of both of a player’s initial cards is near to 21 and the player feels the Dealer cannot match such a high score, he or she will stand in the hope that the dealer goes bust trying to match their score.
If the combined value of both of the player’s initial cards is low, he or she can ask the dealer to “hit” and they will be dealt another card from the deck to add to their score. The player can ask for as many cards as he or she wants before they go bust, the skill comes in knowing when to stand.
