A Brief History of Online Blackjack
Online blackjack, like its original land-based variant, doesn’t just offer up a card game with winning potential, it literally carries with it a legacy that can be traced all the way back to the start of the 17th century. First formally mentioned in a Spanish story written by Miguel Cervantes between 1601 and 1602, the game is actually believed by some historians to go all the way back to ancient Egypt. Another commonly held belief is that blackjack’s genesis goes back to 18th-century France. What is quite apparent is that blackjack is a game born of the world and one steeped in the passages of time. This historical value gives the game an air of tradition, and it’s something that’s effectively carried over into online blackjack and its fun-filled variations.

How To Play Blackjack

We provide demo gaming for our card and table games, hence there’s no need to play for real money, especially if you’re new to this world. The general rules of online blackjack gambling are universal and incredibly easy to learn. In fact it’s often been said that blackjack is easy to learn, but difficult to master. It’s also a lot of fun and once players get acquainted, the game soon begins to reveal its real potential.
The player is dealt two cards up with the dealer receiving two as well but with only one showing. Cards 2 to 10 are their pip value, in other words their value is in direct correlation to the number on the card. Face cards – Jack, Queen and King – are all valued at 10 and the Ace, depending on how your hand goes, can alternate bewteen 1 and 11 in value. Once your cards are dealt, you may add more to increase the value of your hand so as to best that of the dealer or to score a perfect blackjack – 21.
Basic blackjack strategy starts with knowing when to stand or hit. The player to the dealer’s left goes first and must decide whether to "stand" or "hit", in other words, ask for another card. The player can keep hitting one card at a time until they choose to stand. If the value of the hand goes over 21, the player is “bust” and the bet goes to the dealer. When everyone has stood or gone bust, the dealer turns their card up. The dealer must stand on 17 or more, but on 16 or less, the dealer must draw until the total reaches 17 or higher.
If they player’s first two cards are the same, they can “split” the hand and play the cards as two separate hands. Many blackjack players sawy “always split aces and 8s” and “never split 5s and 10s”. If the first two cards total 9, 10 or 11, the player can “double down”. When this happens, the player places a bet equal to the original bet on their turn. Then the dealer gives the player one card face down. At the end of the hand, the card is revealed.
