Blackjack is one of the most popular games in online casinos around the world. This game is usually played with a deck of 52 cards. You will not play against other players, but against the dealer, that is, the casino itself. There are many versions of blackjack, and each has its own rules and strategy. Further down the text we will give more details about each of them.

Blackjack rules

When you play blackjack, you should learn the rules well because it affects the outcome of your round. In simple words, you should always try to beat the dealer by scoring as many 21 points as possible, but no more.

At the beginning of each round, two cards are dealt to each player, including the dealer. In this case, you will only see one card from the dealer.

In blackjack, cards have the following point values:

  • Ace – 1 point or 11 points, whichever is more favorable to the player.
  • King, queen, jack and “10” all bring 10 points.
  • All other cards are their own values, i.e. 9 points for a “9”, 6 for a “6” and so on.

You beat the dealer if your point total is closer to 21 than his. In this case, you win 2:1. When you get an ace and any ten-point card (king, queen, jack or “10”) at the start, this is the best outcome. In this case, your winnings will be 2.5:1, meaning you'll get $25 for a $10 bet.

By selecting the “Hit” option, you can always get an extra card. This doesn't make sense if you already have 21 points or a blackjack combination. When other players finish another round, the dealer can get an extra card or stop. Remember that you will have an “overcall” if your points exceed 21. Regardless of the dealer's number of points, this means losing the round. In any case, the dealer plays a certain pattern. 

The dealer always draws an extra card if the dealer's point count is 16 or less. When the dealer's points reach 17 or more, the round comes to an end and the winner is determined. In the next section, we will introduce you to some of the best blackjack strategies that you can use when playing blackjack at online casinos.

Blackjack Strategy

There are many strategies that can be followed depending on one's own playing style and blackjack variation. However, there is a basic strategy for playing online casino on cryptocurrency. It consists of the following: you should always take an extra card in case:

  • The dealer's open card is a “7”, “8”, “9”, “10”, jack, queen, king or ace.
  • At the same time, you have less than 17 points.

So, if you see a “7” card from the dealer and you have a “9” and a “7” in your hand, that is a total of 16 points, you should choose the “Hit” option to get another card. There is a chance that the dealer will have 17 points, and without a set of extra card(s), you have a better chance of losing.

When the dealer's open card is a “4”, “5” or “6” and you, at the same time, have 12 or more points in your hand, you should not take an extra card. Why? Because if you choose “Hit” and get, for example, a king, it will be an overcall and lose the round. With this arrangement, the odds are more favorable if you stop at a relatively low number of points, rather than risking the round and pulling another card. If the dealer has a “2” or a “3”, however, it's worth stopping if you've already gotten 13 points or more.

When one of your cards is an Ace (and you don't have a Blackjack), this is called a “soft” hand. For example, if you have an Ace and a 6 at the start, you will have a “soft 17”. This combination is called “soft” because, in this case, having an ace allows you to count the number of points as 17 or as 7.

How is this possible? As we mentioned earlier, an ace can count as either 1 or 11 points. So if you have a “soft 17” in your hand and the dealer has an open ten-point card, you won't lose anything by pulling an extra card. Even if you pull a card with a value higher than 4 points, the round will not be lost on that, as you can count the ace as 1 point instead of 11 and continue playing.

One of the most important options in blackjack is doubling your bet. To double your bet, you should select the “Double Down” option. This action will double your bet and you will immediately get another card. And that's the end of it, no matter what kind of card it is. You will no longer be able to pull additional cards in this round, nor will you be able to undo the last action.

The strategy for doubling up is as follows:

  • When you have 11 points in hand, always double up;
  • When you have a 10-point hand, always double unless the dealer's revealed card is an Ace or a ten-point card;
  • When you have 9 points in hand, double only if the dealer's open card is between 2 and 6 points.

Whenever you receive two cards with the same value (no matter what suit), you have the option to “Split” them. By selecting “Split” you will split the cards into two separate hands, each of which will immediately add a card. You can then continue the game as if nothing had happened, playing two hands instead of one.

It is worth doing a split every time you get a pair of Aces or Eights in a hand. It is never a good idea to split with ten-point cards or fives. “Doubles,” “threes,” and “sevens” should always be split except when the dealer has an open 8, 9, ten-point card, or ace. As for a pair of sixes, they should only be split when the dealer has a 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6.

The main types of blackjack

As mentioned above, there are many varieties of blackjack. Although the basic rules are pretty much the same everywhere, you will notice some key differences anyway. These usually relate to when exactly the dealer gets the second card, whether he will stop at “soft 17”, whether you can abandon the round and get half your bet back (“Surrender”) and so on.

Here are the most famous blackjack variants seen at online casinos:

  • American blackjack, also known as classic blackjack;
  • European blackjack;
  • Spanish blackjack;
  • English Blackjack;
  • Face Up 21 (blackjack with two open dealer cards).

Blackjack for US and Danish players

If you're in the United States and you like to play blackjack, there are several casinos for you to play for real money too. But keep in mind that you have to be aware of the laws that apply to casino games in the state where you live, and that is your responsibility. You can also use software like a VPN, which will allow you to access a particular casino from almost anywhere in the world.
