How to Play Blackjack
The game originated in countries like France, Italy and Spain, and was often referred to as Twenty-One, due to the number 21 playing such a significant role in the game. Over the years, numerous variants developed, including some changes to the blackjack rules.
Nowadays, you can join a table where you’ll be dealt two cards face up. The dealer also receives two cards, but while one is face up, the other is facing down. The goal of blackjack is simple – to get as near to 21 as possible without exceeding it, and to have a hand with a higher value than the dealer. If you go over 21, you’ll bust and relinquish the game – which applies to the dealer as well.
In playing blackjack online, you can choose to Hit or Stand. To Hit means you want the dealer to give you another card. You would do this based on the current value of your cards, and only if you think the next card won’t result in you going bust and believe the dealer won’t have a better hand. If you Stand, it means you don’t want any more cards and the value of your current cards is already quite high. Once all decisions have been made at the table, the dealer will reveal their facedown card, so you can see who of you is closer to 21.
More Basic Blackjack Rules
Apart from Hit or Stand, online blackjack rules also include Double Down, which means you can request another card if your value is low, doubling your wager. You can also choose to Split and make two new hands comprising one card each – which means both hands will get an additional card each.
Once your hand and the dealer’s hand are revealed and compared, you’ll receive a return of 1:1 if your total value was below 21 but still higher than the dealer’s, or below 21 while the dealer’s is over.
