With improvements in mobile technology, mobile online casino games offer the same high quality casino experience as their online counterparts. At JackpotCity Casino we offer a wide range of mobile games that you can play on your smartphone or tablet, from anywhere in the world. One of the most popular mobile games at the casino is mobile Blackjack. This classic casino card game is a perfect example of an iconic land-based game that is ideally suited for mobile devices.
Blackjack is one of the world’s most popular card games and is one of the very few where playing the right strategy can actually reduce the house edge. Mobile Blackjack is played in the exact same way as the land-based version, which means that you can log on and start without having to adjust how you play. If you want to get started playing online, you can either download the JackpotCity iOS or Android mobile casino app, or log onto the mobile website and play online via your mobile web browser. Our games have been optimised to run smoothly on iPhone, Android, iPad, Windows Mobile and just about every other smartphone or tablet.
The setup for mobile Blackjack will look familiar to anyone who has played the game online. While it has been adapted for the smaller screen, everything else remains the same.
Mobile Blackjack consists of a single Blackjack table with the game buttons at the bottom, the dealer at the top and the virtual chips on the side of the table. As with all the games at JackpotCity Casino, you can choose to play for free or for real money at any time. Playing for free is a great way to hone your skill and learn new strategies without worrying about how much you are winning or losing in the process.
Once you are happy with how the game works, you can swap over and start playing and winning real money on your mobile.
A game of mobile Blackjack begins with you placing your bet. This can be done by tapping on the virtual chips and placing them on the betting area on the virtual Blackjack table. For those who are new to the game, the aim in Blackjack is to beat the dealer by creating a point score of 21 points or as close to 21 without going over this number.
Each card in the deck is worth a certain number of points. Cards 2-10 are worth their face value while the 10; Jack, Queen and King are worth 10 points each. The Ace is worth a single point or 11 points, depending on what is needed in your hand. In mobile Blackjack once you have placed your bet, you can click on the deal button. The dealer will then deal you two cards, and himself two cards with one facing up. From here you can decide whether to hit, stand, split your hand or double down.
By analysing your own hand and comparing it the dealer’s up-facing card, you can determine the best course of action to maximise your winnings, or reduce your losses if you have a low scoring hand. There are plenty of Blackjack strategies online that will take you step-by-step through the best way to proceed with different hands, and these can improve your chances of a big win.
In mobile Blackjack, if your hand beats the dealer, you will be paid out even money. If you win with a hand of Blackjack, you will be paid out 3:2.
