The game of Blackjack has been a player favorite for many years. Blackjack, the game is fairly simple. The object of the game is about having better cards than the dealer without going over the sum of 21. If the dealer has a higher hand or the sum of your cards is over 21, you lose.
When playing online you can play multiple hands at a time. This also gives you an edge as you can make a better educated guess on what cards the dealer may have or get should they hit. This will help if you are counting on strategy whilst playing. When the game starts you will be dealt two cards. It will be your choice based on those two cards to either hit or stand. To” hit” means to be dealt an additional card and to “Stand” means you do not wish to be dealt any further cards and that you are happy with your hand as it. You can hit as many times as you want until you get as close to or get 21 or until you bust.
All of the cards in the deck have a value. The value of cards 2 through 10 are the same as what is indicated. The Ace can be either one or eleven and face cards also have a value of 10. Blackjack is achieved when an ace and any card that has a value of 10 is dealt. Since an ace can either represent one or eleven, it also gives players the possibility of having a soft or hard hand, depending on how it’s used. A soft hand is a card combination where an ace can either be used as 1 or 11. For example if you had cards of 9 and an ace. It could either be 10 or 19.
A hard hand is one in which you won’t have the opportunity to use the ace as 1 or 11. For example, the cards you were dealt were 7 and 6. You then hit and are dealt an ace. In this case you would not be able to use the ace as 11 as it would cause you to go bust.
Blackjack is a fun and fast paced game that can net you some great highs and even better wins.
