If you are new to the whole online gambling scene, then the game I would always suggest as a starting point is online casino blackjack. Not only is blackjack a really fun game, but it is also one of the easiest casino card games. If you can learn the blackjack basics then you are sure to win big money in no time, and the online casino blackjack games look and feel just like the real games. If you do have experience playing in a land casino then you’ll be able to master the game very quickly.

So the next question is quite an obvious one. How exactly is online casino blackjack played? Blackjack is, as you may or may now know, also quite often called 21; this is because 21 is the number of points you need to win the game. Each card is assigned a specific number of points. The numbered cards which are 2 to 10 are given their face value. If you have 5 then the point value is 5. If you have a 6 then the point value is 6. The suit of the card does not matter in online casino blackjack. The face cards – Jack, Queen and King – are valued at 10 points, and the Ace is worth either 1 point or 11 points (your choice). You must get a hand that is 21 points, or as close to 21 as possible whilst being higher than the dealer’s hand. You should not go over 21 points or you will lose, and this is called busting.

To start the game you must first place your bets, before pressing the ‘deal’ button. You will be dealt 2 cards face up. The dealer also gets 2 cards; one face up, the other face down. Check your cards to see how many points you have. If you lucky enough to get 21 points on your first hand it’s called a natural, and needless to say you win. Let’s say that you got a 2 and 10, which means you have a total of 12 points. You can improve your total hand value by accepting one more card from the deck. Press the ‘hit’ button to receive one more card. Let’s imagine you are given a 6. Now you have a total of 18 points. Accepting another card could make you go over 21 points, so it would be advisable in this situation to press the ‘stand’ button. At this point the dealer will reveal his face down card to see if he has a blackjack. If not, he will keep hitting until he gets to 21, or he busts; whichever comes first. Hitting and standing at the right time is the most important part of online casino blackjack, if you want to win. If you can get that right then you are already halfway there. There are a few more actions in blackjack like split and doubling down, which I shall explain.

When you receive a pair of cards, you can opt to split it into two separate hands and play them individually. Doubling down is the act of doubling your bet and accepting only one more card. You would normally do this when you are sure that the next card will give you high points.

The strategies in blackjack are really simple, and once you learn them you can easily win on every hand.
