Online Blackjack:

In online blackjack, you and up to 4 other players each competes against the dealer and not against each other as they do in other games. This is one of the reasons for which blackjack is one of the favorite casino games for most gamblers. Before the dealer deals the cards, all the players place their bets. These may vary from a minimum of $1 to about $ 500, depending on the casino you’re playing at. After you place your bet and the game begins, you can’t change it unless you choose to double down or split.

Doubling your bet is only possible after you are dealt your first two cards. Only after this you will be dealt another card and you are not allowed to hit again if you decide to double down. If you prefer to split and win twice in a game, you can break or separate your hand in two separate hands. In such cases you need to place another bet, of the same value as your initial bet and you play each hand individually. So, you can hit as many times as you want.

Placing A Blackjack Bet Online:

After placing your initial bet, you are dealt two cards: one face up and the other face down. The object of the game is to have a hand as close as 21 as possible as or closer to 21 than the dealer, but without going over 21. You may ask for as many cards as you wish or, on the contrary, stand and therefore not receive any more cards. If you have a blackjack, which consists of a face card and a 10 with an ace from the first round of dealing, you win and are paid one and a half time your initial bet. If the dealer has a blackjack as well, it’s a tie and you get your bet back. If the dealer’s showing card is an ace, you may insure yourself in case his concealed card is a face card or a 10 and therefore place an insurance bet. If this assumption proves to be right and the dealer’s face down card is indeed a face card or a 10, you get this bet back.

Otherwise, you lose this insurance bet. You have a lot more chances of winning than the dealer because the dealer has a strict rule to respect. The dealer must hit until he has at least 17. If the dealer’s decision is to push, you and the other players at the table will all be paid. In turn, all players stand or hit trying to get as close as possible to 21, without going over 21. Afterwards, it’s time for the dealer to turn up his concealed card. The players who have a higher account than the dealer win as much as they have bet.

There are certain blackjack rules rules that may vary from one casino to another. Among the things that may vary the most frequently found are the number of decks used, the option to double down and split and the rules the dealer must respect. Of course, the more limited and restricted the dealer is in making decisions and the fewer decks of cards in the game, the more chances you have to win. So, Isn't’t blackjack the easiest game to play? Online Blackjack Strategy: What to Look For - Blackjack is one of the most classic casino games, both live and online. It is also one of the games where strategy is most important. Here are a few things to consider when attempting to play and possibly beat online blackjack.....

1. How Many Decks Are Being Used?

Live casino blackjack games use multiple decks. Initially this was to speed up play, but currently multiple decks are used to thwart card counters. Knowing when a deck is rich in ten-point cards relative to other cards is an advantage to the player, and the more decks, the harder this is to know. Online blackjack games also use multiple virtual decks, although four deck, two deck and even single deck blackjack is available online.

2. Does the Dealer Stand on Soft 17?

In most live casinos, blackjack dealers stand on soft 17, that is, a hand of A6, which could be hit without busting. Since hitting this hand would give the dealer an extra opportunity to improve, playing on an online blackjack table where the dealer hits soft 17 adds to the house edge. Avoiding those tables should thus be part of your blackjack strategy.

3. Is There a “Charlie” Rule In Effect?

A Charlie rule in blackjack means that the player automatically wins if he can take a certain number of cards without busting. A five card Charlie would mean the player’s hand must have five cards in it, a six card Charlie six and so on. A five card Charlie rule is a considerable advantage to the player, while a six card Charlie rule confers a slight advantage.
