What Is Blackjack?

Also known as 21, Blackjack is one of the oldest casino games around. Way back in the early 1600s in France, a game called Vingt-Un, or 21, began to gain popularity among the gambling-minded French men and women.

The first recorded game was played there a few years later and then began to spread across Europe, gaining popularity as it went. As land-based casinos, and later online casinos, became more common, so did the sight of men and women dressed to the nines, sitting at the Blackjack table, facing off against the dealer.

Blackjack is one of the truest tests of skill and luck, a face-off between the player and the dealer. And playing online Blackjack gives you a chance to try out your strategy, test your skills, and enjoy a pastime enjoyed by millions of people all over the world.

How To Play Online Blackjack

Cracking the online Blackjack code and learning to play the game is easy enough to learn. Most games will include a step-by-step tutorial of how that specific game works, although most games are also similar enough that, once you know the basics, you can figure out how to play whichever game you choose.

Here are the basic steps to follow:

STEP 1 – Find Your Game and Join a Table

At Lucky Creek online casino, there are many varieties of online Blackjack to choose from, including:

  • Atlantic City Blackjack,
  • Blackjack Baltic,
  • Blackjack VIP,
  • European Blackjack, and more!

Each one has its own special something to keep you entertained, so why not try them all? Once you find a game you like, you can join a table and get the show on the road.

STEP 2 – To Hit or to Stand

The aim of the game with online Blackjack, especially when playing for real money, is to get as close as possible to 21. You want a hand higher in value than the dealer’s but no more than 21. So the dealer will deal the cards and you’ll check them, then decide if you want to HIT or STAND.

To HIT means you’ll ask the dealer for another card. This is a strategy you can play when you have looked at your cards and decided that, based on the current value of your cards, you’re either pretty sure that the next card won’t cause you to go bust or you’re willing to run the risk of the dealer getting a better hand.

To STAND means you’re happy with the hand you’ve got and the dealer can move on. This is best done when the value of your cards is already quite high already (e.g. over 17).

STEP 3 – Your Hand Value

Check your hand value. If you decided to HIT, your value will have changed. If your hand is valued at 21 or less, you’ll stay in the game. If not, you’re out. Better luck next time.

STEP 4 – The Dealer Reveals Their Cards

After all players at the table have made their decisions, the dealer will reveal their facedown card.

STEP 5 – Who’s the Winner?

The name of the game in Blackjack is 21. The player with the hand closer to 21 than that of the dealer is the winner! If the dealer has 21 or a closer score to 21 than any of the other players, the dealer wins. If Lady Luck has been on your side and you win the game, you will then be issued with your winnings.

You also need to keep in mind that, in Blackjack, cards have points values. Cards numbered two to 10 are worth their face value (i.e. a two of clubs, for example, is worth two), while face cards are worth 10 points each and aces are with one [1] or 11.

You play the hand you’re dealt by adding up the value of each of your cards. If your hand beats the dealer’s hand and comes in under 21, then you can collect your winnings and get on with living your best life!
