Before pulling up a virtual chair, it’s vital to know how to play blackjack online:

  • At the start of an online blackjack game, the dealer will dish out two cards for you, and two for themselves.
  • Your main aim when playing online blackjack, is to get your card total as near to 21 as possible, but not going over – that’s what we call a "bust". We mention the card values in the rules below.
  • Now you've got options: "Hit" to take another card, "Stand" to take no more cards, "Double Down" to double your bet and take just one more card, or "Split" if you've got two of the same cards.
  • Remember, while the game is about the thrill of the chase, it's also about the blackjack basic strategy. So, study the dealer's up card before you make your move.


Once you know how to play blackjack online, it’s important to familiarise yourself with the game’s basic rules.

  • Objective: The goal is to beat the dealer's hand without going over a card value of 21.
  • Card Values: Number cards are worth their face value in blackjack, face cards are worth 10, and Aces can be worth 1 or 11.
  • Dealing: Players and the dealer are dealt 2 cards each, with players' cards typically facing up and one of the dealer's cards facing down.
  • Player Options: Players can hit (receive another card), stand (keep their current hand), double down (double their initial bet and receive one more card), split pairs (split matching cards into separate hands), or surrender (forfeit half their bet).
  • Dealer's Turn: The online blackjack dealer reveals their face-down card and hits or stands based on predetermined rules (usually hitting on 16 or less and standing on 17 or more).
  • Winning: Players win if their hand is closer to the value of 21 than the blackjack dealer's without exceeding it, or if the dealer should bust (go over 21).
