How To Play Live Blackjack

There’s no difference between live casino blackjack rules and the rules you’d follow when playing a land-based game in person, or a software-powered virtual blackjack game online. The objective is the same – aiming to get your hand as close to a value of 21 as you can, without exceeding it and going bust.

Once you’ve placed your bets, the live blackjack casino dealer will deal two cards to you and themselves. Your numbered cards are worth their value, the King, Queen, and Jack royals are worth ten points each and the Ace can be either 1 or 11. After assessing your live blackjack hand value, you can choose to: hit (to receive another card), stand (to keep your current hand), double down (to double your bet plus receive another card), or split (splitting 2 identical cards into 2 hands). If your hand value is closer to 21 (not over) than the live casino blackjack dealer’s hand, you win.

Live Blackjack Variations And Lingo

Certain variations on live casino blackjack rules/games can affect the return on your game:

  • Dealer Rules: In some games, the live online blackjack dealer will stand on a soft 17, others not. If the dealer is allowed to hit, your return would fall by 0.22%.
  • Surrender: This great option to forfeit half your bet and withdraw from a hand in certain situations, can reduce potential losses.
  • Split Aces: When you’ve split a pair of Aces into two separate hands and you’re allowed to hit, your chances of winning at live blackjack increase.
  • 10-Card Charlie: This rare rule will let you win automatically if you draw 10 cards without busting.
  • Side Bets: These are additional bets placed on specific outcomes/events within a live blackjack game, which offer potential extra payouts.
  • Insurance: This is offered when the dealer's face-up card is an Ace, providing you some protection against the dealer having a natural blackjack.

When playing online, live blackjack lingo knowledge will give you an added advantage:

  • Anchorman: The player seated farthest to the right at the live blackjack table, the last to receive cards.
  • Dealer: The live blackjack online casino representative, dealing the cards and managing the bets.
  • First Baseman: The player seated farthest to the left at the live blackjack table, the first to receive cards.
  • Head-to-head: A live blackjack game with only one player and the dealer, no other players at the table.
  • Push: When the player and dealer ties, and the player's bet is returned – no winnings or losses.
  • Round: A complete cycle of playing blackjack live – from cards dealt and bets made to outcomes.
  • Third Baseman: The player seated immediately to the right of the first baseman at the live blackjack table.
  • Upcard: The online blackjack live dealer’s face-up card that’s visible to all players at the table.
