Let’s Play Blackjack Online

There is a certain joy that can be found in winning. Australian’s best online casino, Royal Vegas, knows all about this, and we make a point of rewarding as many winners as possible with earth-shattering prizes on a regular basis!

Blackjack: the basics

The game of blackjack is a game that is based on combining gaming skill with luck. It is one of the most popular table games around the world, and it is offered by Royal Vegas Australia in a number of formats, including live tourneys.

You take on the dealer (or the house), and your primary objective is to reach a card value of 21, or the closest to 21, without busting out.

The Rules of Blackjack

This amazingly fabulous and entertaining game is one of addition, and each card has a specific value:

  • Cards 2 to 10 are equal to their face value
  • Jack, queen and king are equal to 10
  • The player can decide whether or not an ace is equal to 1 or 10, based purely on what they need

A win is the result of the dealer busting out or the player ending up with a hand that totals nearer to 21 than the dealer’s. It really is that simple.

The player may elect to “stand” (take no additional cards from the dealer), or “hit” (request an additional card) after the initial two cards are dealt. That’s where your skill will come into play.

More decisions need to be made if each of the initial pair of cards dealt to the player have the same value. The player must decide if it would be more worthwhile to split the hand and play two simultaneously, which could potentially result in doubling the bet.

The original bet will be “pushed” (returned to the player), if both the dealer and the player have the exact same total, or tie. If a player has reached the unfortunate decision that the chances of winning with a particular hand are mighty slim, they can “surrender”.

Start playing!

Now that you know a few of the basics, put your skills to the test. Try any one of our blackjack variants, or spruce your gaming session up with our Live Casino blackjack offering.
