It is the casino version of the popular game „twenty-one”. Throughout the world, no other game is so often played in online casinos as blackjack. It became a beloved game of millions of people.
Its popularity come from the fact that it is much more a game based on player’s skills than others. Playing a long time, and choosing a specific strategy you can significantly increase your chances of winning.
The player's task is to beat the dealer by obtaining the sum of the cards as close as 21 points, but not exceeding 21 points.
The player or players are dealt a two-card hand and add together the value of their cards.
The cards from 2 to 10 have their value, ie. Card 2 - 2 points, card 7 - 7 points, etc. Face cards ie. Jacks, Queens, Kings are counted as ten points. A player and the dealer can count an ace as 1 point or 11 points depending on what makes a better hand.
The game begins by making a bet - you get two cards face up. You have several options:
- If you want to take an additional card to get closer to 21 points click "Hit"
- If you are satisfied with what you have on your hands you click the "Stand”
- To receive only one card and double the bet you click the "Double"
- To separate the pair - click "Split" and you draw one card for each card separated.
Depending on your preferences you can click "Hit" or "Stand" for each set of cards.
If in the first two received cards you will have an Ace and 10 you have the "twenty-one" and you win automatically, unless the dealer will receive the same card. In such a case there
is a tie and no one wins.
