Blackjack is without a doubt the most popular card game you can find at a casino. With the great popularity, blackjack is of course also found in almost all online casinos , where you will be able to find several different versions of the popular game at the same time. Blackjack is a simple card game where you play against the dealer. In all its simplicity, the game means that you as a player must beat the dealer in getting closest to 21, but without hitting over.When the game starts, you as a player receive two cards.
The dealer also gets two cards, of which you can see one. The one card that you can see that the dealer has, you can use to assess your next move. Once the cards have been dealt, it is your turn to decide what to do next in the game. The two main options you have are to stand with the cards you have, or to draw more. If you choose to draw more cards, you will receive another card, after which you will again have to choose whether you want to draw or draw more.
You can continue this until you choose to stop, hit 21, or reach over 21. If you reach over 21, you have lost your hand. When you have finished your decisions without losing and thus have chosen to stand or hit 21, it is the dealer’s turn. The dealer will here turn over the card that was not visible and must now draw cards. The dealer does not have to make any decisions himself, but has to draw cards based on some fixed rules. These rules mean that the dealer must draw cards as long as the total value is below 17 and stand when the value is between 17-21.
However, there are different rules for whether the dealer should draw or stand when the value is 17. This is different in the different versions of Blackjack and based on the casino’s rules. These rules also mean that the dealer must draw more cards even if the dealer has a better hand than you. For example, if you have chosen to stand at 13 and the dealer has 14, the dealer must therefore still draw cards despite the dealer having a better hand than you. You win your hand by having a better hand when both you and the dealer have finished drawing cards. If you and the dealer end up with the same hand, it is a “push”, which means that the hand ends in a draw and you get your bet back.
