Is online blackjack a game of skill or chance? Both, but skill can play a significant role, whether you’re at Lucky Nugget’s live casino or playing our other thrilling blackjack games online.

Online Blackjack Strategies

When it comes to the best online blackjack practices in Canada, having a solid strategy can greatly enhance your experience. Consider the following:


  • Basic Strategy: Assume the dealer’s face down card is a 10, Stand on a hard 17 or higher, Hit on a hard 11 or lower, and Double Down on hard 10 or 11 if the dealer has a 9 or lower.
  • Avoid Insurance: It typically has a high house edge, making it an unfavourable online blackjack bet in the long run.
  • Progressive betting strategies: Includes the Martingale system, in which you double your bet after each loss to recover losses, and the Paroli system, in which you double your bet after a win to potentially maximise your profits.
  • Table selection: Select blackjack online tables with favourable rules like Doubling Down on any two cards or those with fewer decks and that you’re most comfortable with.
  • Play responsibly: Set a budget and time limit for your online blackjack sessions and do not chase wins or losses.

Online Blackjack Rules

As with our other exciting casino games online, it’s essential to understand the basic rules of playing online blackjack in Canada so as to maximise your enjoyment. Here are a few to keep in mind:


  • Primary objective: To beat the online blackjack dealer's hand without exceeding a total of 21 points.
  • Card values: Number cards are worth their face value, face cards are worth 10 points, and Aces can be worth 1 or 11 points, depending on the player's choice.
  • Dealer's play: The dealer must Hit on 16 and Stand on 17 or higher.
  • Blackjack (Natural): Achieve it by getting an Ace and a 10-value card as your initial two cards, resulting in an instant win unless the dealer also has Blackjack.
  • Blackjack payout: A winning blackjack hand online typically pays out at a ratio of 3:2.
  • Push: If you and the dealer have the same hand value, it results in a Push or Tie and your bet is returned.

How To Play Blackjack Online

Playing blackjack online requires a mix of strategy, skill and chance. With that said, it’s easy to learn the basics of playing. Here’s what to do:


  • Place your bet: Select your desired chip value and place your bet before the online blackjack cards are dealt.
  • Receive your initial cards: You will be dealt two cards face up while the dealer receives one face-up card and one face-down card.
  • Decide to Hit or Stand: You can receive another card (Hit) or keep your current hand (Stand).
  • Split Pairs: If your first two cards are of the same value, you can choose to split them into two separate hands, each with their own bet.
  • Double Down: If you’re confident in your hand, you can choose to double your initial bet after receiving the first two cards in online blackjack.
  • Dealer's turn: After you're done, the dealer reveals their face-down card and makes their move. Dealers must Hit if their hand totals 16 or less and Stand if it's 17 or more.
  • Determine the winner: If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer's or if the dealer busts, you win your round of online blackjack. If your hand exceeds 21, you bust and lose your bet.
