Blackjack Online - Basics For Beginners
Fortunately the basics are pretty much the same across the board. Whether you are enjoying video blackjack or live blackjack online, the objective is always to get a hand total of 21 or as close to that as possible.
At the same time, you can't go any higher than 21, and your total must beat the dealer's hand. Number cards are worth their pip value. Face cards are worth 10 and aces count as 11 or 1, depending on what is better for the specific situation. At the beginning of the round, you'll need to place your bet.
How to play online blackjack?
- Place a bet to receive 2 face-up cards from the dealer, who’ll receive 1 face-up card.
- Work out how much your hand is worth and weigh it up against the dealer’s card
- If your score’s not 21, decide whether to hit (ask the dealer for another card) or to stand (leave things as they are). You can also double down, split a pair into 2 hands or take insurance.
- After serving all players, the dealer shows their down card.
- The dealer has to hit on 16 or less and stand on 17.
- Winners are announced and bets pay out.
It’s good to have a basic strategy for hitting and standing when you play blackjack. Try hit when your score is 12-16 and the dealer has 7-Ace or when you have Ace-6, and stand when your score is 12-16 and the dealer has 2-6. In formulating your strategy, you need to think about the likely different outcomes, based on your hand, the dealer's cards and how many decks are used.

Wins pay out in a few different ways. A regular win pays out 1:1. If you get blackjack, though, your payout is a solid 3:2.

Casino Blackjack to Online Blackjack
Blackjack, or 21, dates back to the early 17th century. The first recorded mention is in the short story Rinconete y Cortadillo by Miguel de Cervantes, who wrote the famous novel Don Quixote. Casino blackjack was also mentioned in France in 1768, in the United Kingdom in the 1770s and 1780s, and in the United States in the early 1800s. The game was especially popular with the prospectors of the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush. The name “blackjack” itself comes from the beginning of the 20th century, when casinos offered a 10:1 bonus payout for an ace of spades and a jack of clubs or spades.
The card game became a firm favourite in traditional casinos, but the game really took off in the mid-1990s. That’s when Microgaming unveiled the first online casino blackjack games, followed by the first mobile casino games in the early 2000s.
The beauty of blackjack is that anyone can learn how to play it, but there’s always something new to learn. That’s even more true when you think about all the different variations there are to discover. All of them are here for you to enjoy at your leisure.
- Standard Blackjack (also known as American Blackjack): the dealer receives a face up and a face down card in the initial deal. If the face-up card is an ace, the dealer peeks at their hole card to check if their hand is worth 21 and pays out any insurance bets.
- European Blackjack: the dealer receives a single face-up card when the cards are dealt at the beginning. The second card is dealt after your move. Players can only double down on 9, 10 or 11 and can only split once. The dealer doesn’t peek for blackjack, which can come as a nasty surprise at the end!
- Atlantic City Blackjack: this variant uses a form of Standard Blackjack rules that allows for late surrender, re-splitting of hands and unlimited doubling down. Atlantic City Blackjack is available in Microgaming’s Gold Series and Multi Hand editions.
- Vegas Strip Blackjack: also goes by standard rules and offers insurance bets against the dealer, who must stand on hard and soft 17. Microgaming Gold Series and Multi Hand editions are available.
- Vegas Downtown Blackjack: there are 2 decks in the shoe, and the dealer must hit on soft 17. Also available in Gold Series and Multi Hand editions.
