In this two-player game, the cards will be shuffled and dealt once you have placed an opening bet. You will receive two cards face down, and the dealer will receive two cards, one of which is face up.
The goal of online Blackjack is to get the value of your hand of cards as close to 21 as possible. Your hand cannot exceed that value, and it must also be strong enough to beat the dealer’s hand.
With this in mind, you would need to take into account the value of the dealer’s one face-up card, and then decide on the move you need to make. You could Hit, and take another card; Double Down, by doubling your bet and taking another card; Split, by splitting your hand into two and playing each separately; or Stand and end your turn. Certain online Blackjack games at JackpotCity also allow for other moves too and you can use strategy to further reduce the house edge.
Your move made, the dealer’s facedown card will be revealed, yours and the dealer’s hand will be compared, and the winner will be announced.
