Live Blackjack Rules: How To Play

The game is played with a standard deck of 52 cards and as with our non-live blackjack games, your objective is to beat the dealer without exceeding 21.

Getting started with live casino blackjack:

  • Sign up at Spin Casino and log in.

  • Go to Bank and deposit funds in your account.

  • Click/tap on the Live Casino > Blackjack tabs to browse.

  • Select your game and the seat you want to occupy.

Basic rules of live dealer blackjack:

  • Place your initial bet by selecting the chip value.

  • Receive two face-up cards from the live dealer.

  • Decide whether to Hit, Stand, Double Down, or Split.

  • If your hand exceeds 21, you bust and lose the game.

  • In the European version, dealer gets a single face-up card.

  • In the American version, dealer gets two cards, one face up, one down.

  • Dealer must Hit if their total is 16 or less.

  • Dealer must Stand on 17 or higher.

  • You win if your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer's or they bust.

  • If you and the dealer tie, your bet is returned.

Card values in live blackjack online:

  • Ace counts as 1 or 11

  • King, Queen, or Jack counts as 10.

  • Cards 2 up to 9 are worth their face value.

Live Casino Blackjack Tips

As with live roulette, live blackjack is both a game of chance and strategy – we recommend the following:   

  • Budget your time and money: Know when to quit, so always set and stick to a budget for each live blackjack gaming session.

  • Split pairs wisely: Improve your odds by always splitting pairs of 8s and Aces, but do not split pairs of 10-valued cards.

  • Choose European over American: The former offers a lower house edge, reducing your risk and enhancing your chances to win at live blackjack.

  • Avoid Insurance bets: The odds are not high that the dealer has a natural blackjack, so you’re likely to lose more money than you would win.

  • Play responsibly: Adopt a strategic approach to playing live blackjack online for real money and never chase wins or losses.

Live Blackjack Vs. Traditional Blackjack

Live blackjack and traditional online casino blackjack games offer distinct experiences for players. In the traditional version, the gameplay is computer-generated, and you interact with a virtual interface. The game unfolds at a pace controlled by you, and outcomes are determined by Random Number Generator technology. On the other hand, live blackjack provides a more immersive experience by featuring a real-life dealer who deals physical cards in real time. You can witness the action through a live video stream, interact with the dealer and other players, and enjoy a more authentic casino atmosphere.
