About Playing Blackjack Online
Playing blackjack online is very similar to the classic card game in a real-life casino, and you'll find that the majority of our tables follow the same rule set as land-based blackjack games. The objective is very much the same - obtain a hand which is higher than the dealer’s without exceeding the total of 21, also known as going 'bust' - if this happens, you lose the game. You'll be dealt two initial cards, whether these be virtual or real, and will then be given the option to hit, stand or double down. Our games are very user-friendly, with an easy-to-navigate game interface and clearly marked buttons.
If you want to know more about a particular table, then check out the game information page, which will provide a good idea of what to expect. If you’re seeking an in-depth expert guide to online Blackjack, click the link below. Now that you understand the basics, it is time to learn to play. Login and sit down at your virtual blackjack table. Wager by clicking on the chips underneath the video screen. When you are ready to go, click the 'Deal' button to see your first two cards. You can then:
Hit – Take another card
Stand – Take no more cards and defer to the dealer
Double Down – Double your wager and then take another card
Split – Split your two cards into separate hands and draw two more cards (note that this automatically doubles your wager).
You can only split on the first draw when dealing with a matching pair. Once you decide to hit or stand, your opportunity to split has passed. Second, note that our Live Blackjack game requires the dealer to stand at 17. At the conclusion of each hand, you can either repeat the next hand with the same wager or choose a new wager. Click the 'Clear' button to remove all wagers from the table and start over.

About Blackjack Strategies
Basic blackjack strategy was first developed by a mathematician who used a computer simulation to play hundreds of millions of blackjack hands. By playing the hands, analysing the results, and running mathematical equations, the computer developed a basic set of rules for improving player advantage. For example, the basic strategy says a player should always split aces but never 10s. It dictates a player should always hit with a hard total of 8, regardless of the dealer's up card.
