BlackJack Games

Blackjack – the game of many variables

Blackjack can be as simple as you want it to be. It’s likely that you are familiar with the main idea of Blackjack that is to collect an amount of points as close to (but not exceed) 21 points. But you are against a dealer so you should know how rules change depending of what variation of Blackjack you are playing.

A wide range of Blackjack games

Most popular Blackjack games at online casinos are Atlantic city BJ, Progressive BJ, Vegas BJ, Double and Single Deck BJ, European BJ. That’s just a few of tens of Blackjack games available.

First up, look at the payouts. Usually, the winning a hand against a dealer pays 2 to 1 while hitting a Blackjack pays 3 to 2. Also, take in to account whether the dealer has to draw a card on soft 17 (hand includes an Ace). You always want him to draw because it gives him more opportunities to go over 21.

Double Deck Blackjack

Double Deck Blackjack differs in several ways including that it’s played with only two 52-cards decks (eight in Atlantic City BJ, six in European BJ). The dealer has to stand on soft 17.

If you stumble across a new variant of Blackjack you have not played before, try it out for play money first and read the rules. By the way, most important information like payouts is always provided on the Blackjack table itself.
