If you are familiar with casino Blackjack, the good news is that mobile Blackjack is played in exactly the same way. The game consists of a single screen with an electronic Blackjack table. All the game buttons and your virtual casino chips are situated at the bottom.
A game of mobile Blackjack starts with you placing your bet on the table. You can do this by tapping on the virtual chips and placing them on the demarcated betting area on the table. At Lucky Nugget, we have games with table limits for both novices and high rollers.
Once you have placed your bet, you can tap on the deal button. You will then be dealt two cards facing up and you will be playing against two cards with one card facing down and the other facing up. This up-facing card is the main focus of all Blackjack strategies. The aim in Blackjack is to beat the dealer by creating a point score of 21 points or as close to 21 without going over. Each card is worth a certain number of points. Cards 2 to 10 are worth their face value while the Jack, Queen and King are worth 10 points. The Ace is worth 1 point or 11 points depending on what is needed for the hand.
Once you have been dealt your 2 cards, the idea is to analyse your hand and compare it to the dealer’s up-facing card. If you have a high scoring hand and the dealer has a low card, you can “stand” and see if the dealer can beat your hand. If you have a low hand and the dealer has a high card, you can choose to “hit” and take an extra card. If you are dealt two of the same cards, you can split your hand into two separate Blackjack hands. The final betting option is known as doubling down. This is usually only used if you have a hand of 10 or 11. Here you take one extra card and double the bet.
Once you are happy with your points score, you can tap on the “stand” button. The dealer’s facedown card will then be flip over to try to beat your score. If either you or the dealer goes over 21 points, it is called going bust and the hand is lost. If the dealer cannot beat your score, you win even money on your original bet. If you win the hand with Blackjack (ace and a face card) then the payout increases to 3:2.
Some of our mobile Blackjack games also have the option of placing side bets at the beginning of the round that run independently of the main bet.
