Where It All Began
The origins of this classic casino game is often debated to this day, but the majority of experts believe that it made its initial appearance in France in the 1700’s. It enjoyed a rather exclusive reputation for a while, first played only in the homes of aristocrats and then in the most prestigious salons, and then it made its move over to the USA, along with the immigrants eager to start again in the New World. The 1990’s saw it make its way online, and from desktops it spread to mobile devices. The result is that these days you can enjoy a host of great takes on this casino game:
- Vegas Strip Blackjack: The Vegas Strip version of the game adds a few additional rules to the basic ones, and you will not be playing against other players. You will need to beat the dealer to 21 as is usually the case.
- Atlantic City Blackjack Gold: This version is played with 8 decks of cards, and these get shuffled before each game begins. Additionally, the dealer is allowed to peek when they show an Ace or a 10-point card, and you will be able to enjoy the option to buy Insurance if that occurs.
- Classic Blackjack Gold: The Microgaming Classic Gold variation makes use of a single, standard deck of 52 cards, and you will be able to Split or Double Down on a Hard 9, 10, or 11. The Insurance option is available for this game as well, and striking it lucky with this feature means that you will collect even if the dealer manages to make a hand of 21.
An Easy Game to Play
There’s no real difference between playing this game online and playing it at a land-based casino, except for the fact that we make it much easier to access. Your objective remains the same, no matter which variation you decide on: build a hand valued at 21, or at least closer to that total than the dealer has done, without Busting, or exceeding it.
You and the dealer will each be dealt 2 cards, yours facing up, the dealer’s with only 1 which you can view. Number cards are worth their pip value, face cards count as 10, and Aces are worth 11 or 1 depending on what is better for the rest of the hand. If you’ve managed to receive cards to the value of 21 at this point, the game ends at once and you win. If not, you can Stand, and end your turn, or Hit, and take another card. If you end up holding a hand that is closer to 21 than the dealer has, you win.
Beating the dealer by getting the nearest total to 21, or by getting a total under 21 while the dealer's hand is over, will get you a 1:1 payout. The biggest return, 3:2, is reserved for Blackjack, which is what it is called when you land a hand that is worth exactly 21. The more you play, the more you will learn about strategy and calculating how likely you are to win.
