Popular Blackjack Terms
When playing online blackjack, it’s always good to keep a few of the typical terms in mind. Here’s a brief overview.
- Hit: If you want another card, this can be done as many times as you want but remember, if you reach a value over 21 you will ‘bust’ and forfeit the game.
- Stand: This means you want to stop receiving cards, which will initiate the dealer’s turn.
- Push: Both you and the dealer end the round with equal values – so no-one wins, the game is forfeited, and your stake is given back to you.
- Blackjack: An instant win if your first two cards equal 21, granted the dealer doesn’t have the same. You could also potentially get over and above a regular hand’s payout.
Notably, players will also be able to make use of special moves that the dealer doesn’t have access to, such as:
- Insurance: When the game commences and the dealer’s visible card is an Ace, you the player can place an Insurance bet – meaning you are betting that the dealer will get Blackjack (21) and if you’re correct, this will generally pay out 2:1.
- Double: You can Double your bet before getting your last card, after which you will have to Stand.
- Split: If you receive two cards of the same kind, you can Split them and play two hands at once –possibly doubling your winnings.
