Before you can play even one round of this game, you need to know the rules, table manners and strategies. You also have to understand what sets it apart from other poker variants.

Rules of the game

  • The standard 52-card pack.
  • Face Cards are 10 and each individual player decides if an ace is worth 1 or 11. Any other card is its pip value.
  • Before the game starts, players place bets in terms of chips.
  • The dealer will shuffle portions of the card-pack until all cards have been combined. One player then cuts the pack.
  • Once he receives all the bets, the dealer gives each player one cards face up. There is another round of ‘face up’ cards but the dealer’s card must be ‘face down.’ (In virtual blackjack, players’ cards are dealt ‘face up’ as long as no one touches their cards).
  • If your first two cards are an ace and a 10-card, the dealer must pay you 1.5x his/her bet. If the dealer has a natural, he collects the bets of all players without a ‘natural win.’
  • When it’s your turn to play, you can choose to either:
    Stand – Not ask for another card
    Hit – Ask for an alternative card in hopes of reaching 21
  • Once the dealer has served all players, his face-down card must be turned up. Getting 17 or more means he must stand. However, a total of 16 means he must continue to pick cards until the total is 17.

In summary, this is one of the most entertaining casino games in the industry. Now you can find live blackjack and live dealers in most online casinos. At online casinos, you can play this game anytime, anywhere, wherever you want.
