After Pokies, Blackjack is probably the most popular game at Spin Casino. We have to admit that it's not difficult to see why. Nothing blends chance, strategy and fast-paced thrills together in quite the same way. Once it was exclusively played in the homes of European aristocrats, but today the game is played and enjoyed all over the world. When you play at our casino, you have the additional advantage of knowing that all results are provably fair, along with unsurpassed visuals and functionality. Add our bankroll-boosting bonuses, and you've got a sure-fire recipe for truly outstanding Blackjack online. You will love trying out all the table game variations, although we must warn you that finding a favourite will be almost impossible!

Playing Online Blackjack for Beginners

This game is also known as Twenty-One, because the objective is to get a hand total of 21 or as near to that as possible, without going any higher.

Your hand total must also beat the dealer's. Cards from 2 to 9 are worth their face value, and royal cards count as 10. Depending on what works best with the rest of the hand, Aces can be worth 11 or 1. To begin, you'll place your bet and then you and the dealer will each get 2 cards. As well as being able to see both of your own, one of the dealer's cards will be face-up and visible to you. Based on what you can see, you must decide on your next move.

Knowing enough to make informed decisions is an important aspect of knowing how to play Blackjack. Start by choosing the European variant, which has a lower house edge than the American version, is the best one if you’re a beginner or you’re looking for better chances of winning.

According to Blackjack rules, the dealer’s hole card is dealt after your move. The American version has the risk of the dealer peeking and early elimination. Another approach to is to learn about the moves you can make to respond to almost every card combination that you could see on the table.

Basic Online Blackjack Moves

In most variations of these casino games, you can choose to Hit, Split, Double Down or Stand. If you Hit you simply get another card. The same thing happens if you Double Down, but you also double the wager that you placed. If you have a Pair of cards with the same value, you can Split it into 2 new hands of a single card, and get another card dealt to both of these.

When you are satisfied with your cards, you Stand and end the round. As you develop your skills, your understanding of various probabilities and outcomes will also deepen and you'll be able to apply this knowledge when you're looking at your cards and planning your Blackjack strategy.

Some players make moves randomly when playing Blackjack online, which is not necessarily the best approach. Other players have a better approach, and that’s to use Blackjack basic strategy to decide which moves to make. For example, when enjoying the playability of mobile Blackjack, you can stand with a score of 17+, or hit if you have a score of 9 or 10 against a dealer’s 3 through 6. You can also stand on a soft 20 (ace and 9). It also helps to remember to always split a pair of aces or a pair of 8s when possible.

How to Win!

After you and the dealer are standing, both hands are revealed and compared. Blackjack, or a hand of 21 exactly, wins automatically and will get you a hefty 3:2 payout. If your hand is under 21 and the dealer's is over, you get a 1:1 return. The same thing happens if your total is less than 21, but more than the dealer's.

As we mentioned above, some players use Blackjack strategy to help them decide what moves to make. If that sounds like something you’d like to try when playing New Zealand’s best Blackjack with us, here are some intermediate strategies that you can try: If you have a soft total, that is, one of your first 2 cards is an ace that counts as 11 points, keep the following in mind – Double a soft 19 (ace and 8) when the dealer has a 6, but stand for any other dealer card. Hit or stand when you have a soft 18 against the dealer’s 9 through ace, double it against the dealer’s 2 through 6, and stand against other cards.

If you have a hard total (a hand without an ace or an ace dealt later and that counts as 1 point) when playing Blackjack online, consider using the following strategies – stand if you have a score of 17+ or of between 13 and 16 when the dealer has a 2 through 6. Double on a score of 11 or if you have a score of 10 against the dealers 2 through 9. Hit if you have a score of 8.
