A Guide to Playing Online Blackjack and Winning

Blackjack is one of the best-loved of all casino games. Easy to learn and quick to play, it offers some of the highest return to player ratios. The house still has an advantage of course, but it tends to be lower at the Blackjack tables than for any other games on offer.

Playing Online Blackjack for the first time

You might be a seasoned player with experience playing at Blackjack tables in land-based casinos around the world. Or you may, on the other hand, be a novice. Whichever way, the first thing to do is get rid of any preconceptions you might have about playing Blackjack online.

There’s no card-counting or sleight-of-hand to be found when you play Blackjack online. Whether you’re playing with one deck or multiple decks, digital Random Number Generators, known as RNGs ensure the cards are thoroughly shuffled. You can’t beat the system, so don’t waste even a moment of time considering the possibility!

The online gameplay will soon start to make sense, even if you lack any previous experience. But for those who really don’t have any idea what the game is about, the aim is to beat the dealer and achieve 21 points with the cards you’re dealt. Cards are each worth their face value, apart from court cards, which are all worth 10 points, and the Ace, which can be worth either one point or eleven points.

Learn to Play Online Blackjack

The basic rules of Blackjack are incredibly simple. Once you have your two cards can choose to Hit, Stand, Double Down or Split. If you Stand, you choose not to draw any further cards, in the hope that your cards will be closer to the magic number of 21 than the dealers. A Hit means you take another card. Going over 21 is a bust and you’ve lost the game. Double Down lets you double the value of your wager, take one Hit and then Stand. It can lead to bigger wins if you know what you’re doing. And finally Split lets you divide a matching pair of cards into two separate hands, although it may cost more to do so.

Now you know how the game works, you can start playing Blackjack online for fun – and possibly for profit too! You’ll soon find that there are some basic strategies that everyone has their own opinions on. Should you only Double Down if you’re holding 9, 10 or 11? And is Doubling Down only worthwhile if the dealer holds a 4, 5 or 6? Reading about strategies can help to develop and refine your own.

Useful Tips for Playing Online Blackjack

Unfortunately, there’s no magic formula for guaranteeing a win when you play online Blackjack. The online game is actually more random than when playing in a land-based casino, but that’s all part of the fun! And after all, playing online Blackjack should be fun. So start your gaming session by settling on a betting amount and stick to it, no matter what happens. All the most successful players will tell you that knowing when to quit is a key part of it.

Look for online Blackjack games suitable for your level of experience as well as your bankroll. There are plenty of options and variants, so you’ll easily find a game that feels comfortable. Unlike some other card games, Blackjack is purely between you and the dealer. So ignore what other people at the table are doing, as it’s simply not relevant to your gaming experience.

And don’t be tempted to indulge in a few drinks while you’re playing Online Blackjack. Developing a strategy, and learning how to use it and adapt it, is an important part of any successful gaming session. You need to keep your wits about you to really make the most of your opportunities. So take our advice and save the drinks for afterwards. Playing with a clear head will certainly give you the best chances of ending up ahead of the dealer.
