Blackjack is a game most players are familiar with. At JackpotCity Casino you can access and play the latest online Blackjack games from your desktop computer, or mobile device. Powered by Microgaming casino software, our range of online Blackjack games includes Classic Vegas Single Deck Blackjack, Atlantic City Blackjack, Double Exposure Blackjack and so many more. Often referred to as the world’s favourite card game, Blackjack is ideal for both novices and experienced casino enthusiasts.
If you are familiar with the casino version of Blackjack, the good news is that the online version is played in exactly the same way. The biggest difference between online Blackjack and casino Blackjack is how the results are produced. In a land-based casino, a game of Blackjack is played with one or more decks of cards. The decks are shuffled before each round, which creates the randomness of the game. With online Blackjack, a random number generator is used to determine which card will be drawn from the deck. At JackpotCity Casino we used independently audited and externally verified random number generators. This means that you can be 100% sure that all our gaming results are fair and accurate.
In all other ways, online Blackjack follows the same rules and game play as the real thing. Microgaming has created a series of Blackjack games that fully recreates the look and feel of a real casino Blackjack table. When you log onto the game, you will notice that each game has a full-sided Blackjack table with the game buttons on the bottom of the screen and virtual chips lined up alongside the table.
At the top of the screen, the game will display the basic rules of the particular version being played. One of the great things about playing online Blackjack is that you can always choose to play for free or for real money. Playing for free gives you the opportunity to hone your skills, try out new strategies and bet big without worrying about how much you are losing in the process. Once you feel confident with the game, you can swap over and play for real money.
Blackjack is a card game where the aim is to beat the dealer. This is done by creating a hand of 21 points, or as close to 21 as possible, without going over. If this happens, it is called going bust and you lose your bet. At the start of the game, the dealer will deal you two cards and himself two cards with one card facing upward. This upward facing card is the key to the entire game, and what almost every professional Blackjack player bases his or her strategy on.
After the first deal, the aim here is to analyse your hand as well as the dealer’s up-facing card and make an informed decision on how to proceed. A simplified strategy involves deciding if you have a high scoring hand or a low scoring hand. You then compare this to what type of card the dealer is showing. If the dealer is showing a high card and you have a low scoring hand, you would need to increase your point score by taking an additional card.
If however, you have a higher scoring hand and the dealer is showing a low card, the chances are good that you would have a better hand and you should stick with what you have and see if the dealer can beat your hand and possibly go bust in the attempt.
In Blackjack, you have the option of standing, hitting, splitting or doubling down. Once you are happy with your point score, you can click on the stand button. The dealer will then turn over his card and see if he can win. If your hand is higher, you win even money. If you win with Blackjack, you win 3:2!
