Online Blackjack Rules
For those who are new to the game, online Blackjack is played in exactly the same way as you would play in a land-based casino, except the pace is faster.
In the online game, the game is set out a standard Blackjack table. On the table there is a section for the stack of card as well as an area for betting and where the cards are dealt. The game beings with the player placing his or her bet on the table. This can be done by clicking on the chips at the bottom of the screen and then placing them in the betting area. Once the player has placed their bet on the table, the dealer will deal the player two cards and then himself two cards with one card facing up. The aim of Blackjack is twofold; to get as close to 21 points without going over 21, and to beat the dealer.
Totalling your points
In Blackjack, the low number cards, 2 through to 10 are worth their face value. The Jack, Queen, King and Ace are all worth 10 points. The Ace is worth a single point or 11 points depending on what is needed in the hand. If the dealer’s up facing card is an Ace, the dealer can peek at his other card to see if he has Blackjack. If the dealer does indeed have Blackjack, the round ends and the dealer is automatically the winner. If the dealer was not dealt an up facing Ace card, the player carries on with the game. There are essentially three things that can happen; the player can choose to hit, to stand, or to double down.
