Blackjack Online Basic Rules

The main goal of blackjack online casino game is to beat the banker by getting 21 points or close to it without exceeding this number. The hand over 21 is considered to be busted. Gambler's hand is played against the croupier's hand, so other players' cards are not important (except the case of card counting). The player is offered two main options:

Hit - take one more card

Stand - keep your cards.

Two first player's cards are always face up, one of the dealer's cards is face up and one face down. Players are allowed to make different decisions, and the banker should follow fixed rules.

After all bets were done and cards dealt players say their decisions. The first to announce a decision is first player to the dealer's left.

Online Blackjack Card Values

Online game card values coincide with land casino ones:

An Ace - can be counted as 1 or 11

Face Cards (Jack, Queen, King), 10s - 10 points

2s-9s - are counted according to their value.

Blackjack - 2-card hand containing an Ace and 10-value card.

Types of Hands in Blackjack

  1. Soft Hand - the combination of cards consisting of an Ace with 1-point value and one more card. It is allowed to change Ace value to 11 according to your other cards.
  2. Hard Hand - the combination of cards with an Ace counted as 11 only, or otherwise there'll be the Bust.

Main Player's Decisions

  • Surrender the decision made after receiving first two cards with losing half of the initial bet. It is accepted if you don't hope on any winning chances with you two cards.
  • Doubling Down - doubling of you initial wager. After this option it is possible to take only one additional card.
  • Splitting Pairs - possibility to divide a hand of paired cards and then play with them separately. Blackjack strategy recommends always split 8s and Aces.
  • Insurance is offered when the dealer's first card is an Ace and there is a possibility to lose only half of the bet, if the croupier wins.
