The live Blackjack options that await you at our Canadian casino are the latest editions of the card game that has entertained players for more than 400 years. The earliest version, known as Veintiuna (21), was described in 1602 short story by Miguel de Cervantes. From Spain, the game spread to France and Britain, and from there, to North America and other parts of the world. The continued popularity of 21 made it a natural choice when the first RNG and, later, live Blackjack online games were launched in the 90s and 2000s.
All the action, the entertainment, and the atmosphere of live Blackjack is available 24/7. You can play at our tables on computer or mobile device in the comfort of your own home at your leisure.
Basic Rules Of Live Blackjack
If you’re new to playing live Blackjack, you’ll be happy to know that the rules are easy to learn. After placing your opening bet, the dealer will deal 2 face up cards to you. If you’re playing European live Blackjack online, the dealer will get a single face up card. If it’s the American version, they get 1 face up and 1 face down card.
In live Blackjack, Aces are worth 1 or 11 points, cards 2 through 10 are worth their face values, and the royal cards are worth 10 points. If your score is 21 and you don’t tie with the dealer, you win. If it isn’t worth 21 or isn’t close enough to the maximum number of points to beat the dealer, you can increase it by hitting or doubling, or you can split it into 2 new hands. If you think you can win, stand.
Strategies For Beginners
You’ve probably heard that some players use strategies when they play live Blackjack, and you might be curious about using them yourself. We need to say from the outset that, no matter what anyone else says, there is no strategy that can guarantee you will beat the dealer. That said, there are strategies that can help you get into good playing habits.
One of them is to play European variations of live Blackjack online, rather than American variations. The reasons for this are that the European editions have a lower house edge, and in the American editions, there’s the chance that you could be eliminated right after the first deal. Other tips include budgeting your time and your money (and sticking to your budget), and not chasing wins or losses. Another strategy is to always split pairs of Aces and 8s, and never to split pairs of 10-valued cards.
Odds And Payouts
Thanks to the low house edge, high RTP, and player-friendly odds live Blackjack online can be a generous game, especially if you beat the dealer with a natural Blackjack. When we say the game has a low house edge, we mean it. The game puts you on almost the same footing as the house.
Live Blackjack editions have a house edge of approximately 0.72% and a RTP of 99.28%, although the odds of being dealt a natural Blackjack aren’t as high. Instead, the odds of winning with that hand are approximately 31% and with a 0.5% house edge. If the odds are in your favour and you’re dealt that prized hand, it will pay 3:2.
If you placed an insurance bet when playing live Blackjack Canada and it wins, it pays 2:1. Any other winning hand, whether it 21 or a score closer to that number than the dealer’s, pays 1:1.
