Basic Blackjack 101

We know not everyone knows how to play, or a few could use a brush up on the rules. Don’t sweat it, Blackjack is a beloved game for a reason; mostly because it’s so easy to understand, and offers instant entertainment. The name of the game in Blackjack is to get the total of your hand closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand. No, you don’t have to get as close to 21 as possible, all the time - that’s a misconception. Your total only has to be higher than the hand dealt to the dealer, in order for you to win, and take home the cash. Good thing you read this, right?

Also, be sure to keep in mind the Blackjack ‘magic cards.’ Those would be the cards with special properties. Ace can be both 1 and 11, depending on what you need it to be. Plus, if you get 2 cards the same, you can split them apart and have 2 hands for that round. That’s just about all you need to know in order to get started. Unless you want a quick step-by-step guide on how to play a round…

Getting Started

If you’re a little nervous, don’t worry - we’ve got your back. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to play a full round of online Blackjack. First, you’ll have to decide on a bet. After all, you can’t take home cash if you’re not putting any up. Decide on the betting amount, and make it final by clicking the bet button. Now click deal in order to get your first 2 cards. Note that the dealer will also get cards at this point – one face up, one face down. The face up card gives a clue as to what sort of hand the dealer will have. The total of your 2 cards will automatically be added and displayed. You can stick with the cards you have by clicking stand, or ask for another card by clicking hit. It’s up to you. Don’t forget the magic Ace.

Stick with your cards at any time by clicking stand. Once you stand, the dealer’s cards will be revealed. At this point, of course, you win or lose, and that’s all there is to it. Remember, if the dealer face up card is low, chances are they will have a lousy hand.
