New Zealand’s Top Mobile Blackjack Games

Blackjack is probably second only to pokies in the hearts of most New Zealanders.

With that in mind, here at Spin Casino we knew we needed to offer a selection of Blackjack options that was worthy of our Kiwi players. After some careful research, that is exactly what we've done. The games are not only gorgeous, rewarding and entertaining; they have also been checked and are certified as fair by trusted industry regulators.

Powered by Microgaming, our mobile options are also fully compatible with any smartphone, tablet or operating system that you wish to use. Whether you prefer iOS, Android or anything else, you'll be able to beat the dealer and win big, from wherever you are in New Zealand.

Mobile Blackjack Basics

Just like when you play Roulette the rules of this casino game don't change, no matter what platform you are using. As always, you need to get a hand total that beats the dealer's, and is under 21. The ultimate hand is exactly 21, also known as Blackjack, and awards the highest possible payout of 3:2. First of all, you need to place your bet.

Once you've done this, the dealer will give you 2 cards and take 2 for him- or herself. You'll be able to see one of the dealer cards as well as both of your own. Face cards count as 10 and number cards are worth their stated value. Aces count as 11 or 1, depending on what is best with the rest of the hand.

In a land-based venue, you might have spent time waiting in line at the cashier’s office before waiting for a seat at a table, and then you may have waited for other players to place bets. There’s none of that when you play mobile casino games.

Instead, the entertainment is ready and waiting when you want it. You can practise or play the game also known as 21 according to the European, American, or other Blackjack rules whenever it’s convenient for you. Understanding and making moves is a big part of playing casino Blackjack, so let’s take a closer look.

Making Your Mobile Blackjack Move

Once you've seen your hand and the dealer's Hole Card, you need to use this knowledge and your understanding of the casino game to decide what to do next.

Your options vary according to which Blackjack version you are playing, but in general, you can opt to Hit, Double Down or Split. If you Hit or Double Down you'll get dealt another card; in the case of Doubling Down you'll also double your wager. You can only Split if you're holding a Pair of same-value cards. Here, you divide your hand in 2, and are dealt a new card to each of the resultant 1-card hands. When you are satisfied with what you are holding, you Stand, and end the round.

There’s no need to make your moves willy-nilly and to hope for the best. Having the option of making one of several moves and knowing there are only so many card combinations that can be dealt, means it’s possible to use Blackjack strategy to guide your decisions.

You won’t find a single strategy that fits every edition of the game available. The Blackjack rules are tweaked slightly from edition to edition (for example, some games allow splits, while others don’t), so you’d need to take those tweaks into consideration. We’ll take a closer look at strategy for online Blackjack below.


After you Stand your hand is compared with the dealer's, and if you have Blackjack you win automatically. In other cases, you win if your hand total is less than 21 and the dealer's is either greater than 21, or less than 21 but also lower than your total. When either of these things happen, you get a return of 1:1.

Some players think that using a strategy will guarantee mobile casino wins, but that’s not quite how it works. The card game remains one in which the result is up to chance, and whatever the probability of a particular card being dealt, there are no guarantees that will happen. Instead, strategy for mobile Blackjack can help you to make the best decisions for the hands you’re dealt.

A few examples of strategy that you can use when you use your mobile device to play Blackjack online include hitting when you have a score between 12 and 16 and the dealer’s face-up card is a 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, or A, and standing when your score between 12 and 16 and the dealer has a card between 2 and 6. Double when you have a score of 11 and the dealer’s card is between 2 and 10, double or hit when you have an ace and a 6, and split pairs of aces and pairs of 8s.

An example of simpler strategy when playing the best mobile Blackjack games at our Kiwi mobile casino is to stick to the European variations as they have a lower house edge.
