One of the most recognizable card games at any casino, Blackjack is a straightforward game with a few special features that have made this race to 21 an instant classic. You’ll be playing against the dealer for the strongest hand with a value that doesn’t exceed 21. Go over that magic number and you’re bust; that’s an instant loss. Don’t worry, the dealer can do that same and make you a winner by default. Take a risk or play it safe, either way you’re playing the odds to predict which card will come next.
This classic card game is a simple one to approach, there are only a few mechanics you’ll want to know about before you dive right in. First is betting, you can do so in a denomination of your choosing from a single pound to one or two hundred in most cases.
You’ll have the opportunity to split any hand that is initially dealt two of the same card, for instance two aces. They may then both be played as individual hands and allow you to make double in a single round of play.
You can also double down on a hand you think will be a winner whenever you’ve been dealt your two initial cards. Keep in mind you may only be dealt one additional card in this scenario so use this feature wisely.
In some variations, you can purchase insurance for your bet. This is a way to mitigate losses on a hand you think is particularly weak and will not be enough to beat the dealer.
