How to Play Blackjack


If you want an exciting and fast-paced gaming
experience, online blackjack is king of the
casino.
The game is as simple or complex as you want
it to make it – but one thing’s for sure – you’re
in for a thrill ride.
So let’s start with the basics.
The object of the game is to beat the dealer
by getting your cards as close to 21 without
going over – AKA, busting.
You start with two cards.
So does the Dealer, and now you’ve got options:
“Hit” and get another card.
“Stand” and face off with the Dealer.
Double your bet and receive one final card.
“Split” to separate your cards into two individual
hands.
Or “Surrender” to end the round and forfeit
half your wager.

In standard Blackjack, the Dealer can only
hit or stand until his score is at least 17.
Getting a two-card 21 right off the bat is
“Blackjack” and an automatic win (unless
the Dealer also gets Blackjack, in which case
it’s a “push”).
Face cards are worth 10 points.
Aces are worth 1 or 11 points.
Other cards are face value.
Basic strategy includes aiming for at least
a hard 17 or higher.
“Hard” hands are those with no ace.
The minimum target should be 19 or higher
when your hand is “soft.”
However, if the Dealer’s up-card is Two-to-Six,
odds are he’s going to bust, so you should
stand on a score of 13 or higher.
You can play Blackjack several ways: Single
or Double Deck, instead of the standard six-deck
game…
European Blackjack…
Perfect Pairs… and Zappit, where bad scores
can be zapped away – making it one of our
most popular variations.
Your gaming weekend isn’t complete unless
you’ve hit the Blackjack tables.
Break the bank and find your 21.
