Know the Rules

It may sound obvious but the first step to being successful at any casino game is thoroughly understanding the rules. It’s always a good idea to remind yourself of how the game is played to keep the basic rules fresh in your mind. Luckily the basic rules of blackjack are very straightforward! Whether you’re a seasoned blackjack player or an absolute beginner you’re not going to get very far unless you have a basic understanding of the game and its rules. Also, remember at the online casino there are lots of different blackjack variants so make sure you know what game you’re playing before you take a seat at the table.

All the cards are assigned a numerical value, their face value, or in the case of picture cards, 10. Aces can count as either 1 or 11. The objective of the game is to have a total that exceeds the dealer’s total but is not greater than 21. Players are first dealt two cards after which they have the option of taking additional cards, known as taking a “Hit” or sticking with what they’ve got, “Standing”. In a given round a player or the dealer wins by having a score of 21, or a score higher than the other player(s). If the total of the dealer or a player’s hand exceeds 21 they lose, what’s known as going ‘Bust’.
