Have Fun Playing the Best Blackjack Games at Betiton™ Online Casino

Blackjack is one of the most classic, most popular, and greatest games that you can find in the casino. It’s a card game in which players do not play against one another but are actually up against the house—or, in other words, the casino.

The game revolves around the all-important number of 21, which is the best combination that anyone can receive. However, we’ll be going over the rules in greater detail as we go along this page. Thus, we highly suggest that you keep reading.

Welcome to the world of blackjack online.

At the same time, we’ll be going over a number of other things that are related to the fantastic gaming activity. In fact, we’ll be going over some important terminology, the most popular online blackjack tables that we offer on our site, and so on.

Thus, if you’re new to blackjack or you’re a new player on our online gambling site, then reading this page would be extremely beneficial for you. Therefore, without any further ado, we’ll be going over everything that you’re going to need to know.

What Is Blackjack Online?

Blackjack is a card game in which players can be considered to play a part in what results they achieve. That’s because punters are going to take actions that will have a direct impact on what the result of a round in the game is going to be.

This makes it one of the only online casino games where punters can directly affect the outcome. The aim of blackjack is to get a hand that’s better than that of the house. To do this, punters have to get a combination that has a value of 21 or as close to 21 as possible.

What Are the Rules of Online Blackjack?

Whilst we have explained the goal of the game and what blackjack is, it’s time to explain what the actual rules are. We want all of our members to be able to enjoy their time gaming without having to worry about not knowing anything about our games.

However, do bear in mind that what we’ll be explaining are only the basic rules of the standard variant. On our online gambling site, you’ll be able to find dozens of variants, each one potentially offering a special rule on top of those of the standard variant.

Thus, if you’re going to be gaming on a different variant, we highly suggest reading up on it. This includes knowing if your chosen variant has a special rule or anything of the sort. Like that, you’ll be helping yourself out better than we ever could.

Finally, we believe that it’s good for our members to know that there is no actual strategy when it comes to playing online blackjack. However, that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing you can do; in fact, you can get far simply by knowing how the game works!

What Happens During a Game of Blackjack?

To help you understand how to be able to enjoy this great gaming activity, we’re going to go over what a typical round consists of:

  1. Firstly, punters place their bets on the table.
  2. The dealer then deals cards depending on how many punters are participating. However, he will deal 2 to each participant and 2 to himself.
  3. It’s important to know that punters’ hands will consist of faceup cards, whilst the dealer will have one that’s facedown and one that’s faceup.
  4. Punters will then have a number of options of what to do. He can decide to hit, stand, or double down. They can also split their hand if they have been dealt a pair.
  5. If punters decide to hit, then they’ll receive another card. However, if the value of the combination exceeds 21, they go bust and lose.
  6. If, on the contrary, they stand, then they’ll keep the ones they currently have.
  7. If they decide to double down instead, they will double their bet and receive another card. They won’t be able to receive any more after this, however.
  8. Once punters have finished their turn, the dealer will then proceed to take his turn.
  9. Firstly, he’ll reveal his facedown card.
  10. If the value of his hand is lower than 16, then he must hit until it has a value of 17 or above.
  11. However, if it already has a value of 17, then he must stand.
  12. If punters have a better combination than the dealer’s, then they win.
  13. Players also win if the dealer goes bust.
  14. If, however, the dealer receives a combination that’s better than the player’s, then the player loses and his bet goes to the house.

How Do You Play Online Blackjack at Betiton™ Casino?

The first thing that you have to do when playing a game of blackjack is to set down a wager. Of course, different tables will have different minimum bet amounts, so always try to choose the table that has a minimum bet amount that you’re comfortable with.

Once you’ve placed down your stake, the game can finally begin. First, the dealer will deal out 4 cards: 2 to you and 2 to himself. Of course, the ones dealt to you will both be faceup, whilst dealers will have 1 that’s faceup and 1 that’s facedown.

Once you receive your cards, you should look at them thoroughly in order to decide your next move. At this point you can either hit, stand, or double down. Finally, if you’ve received a pair, you have the option of splitting them. When you do this, you have to place another wager.

The 2 bets that you place when splitting have to be identical. This is because when you decide to split, you’ll essentially be gaming with 2 different hands. Once you’re finished with your turn, the dealer reveals his hidden card.

He will then take different actions depending on the value of his hand. If it’s lower than 16, he must hit. However, if it’s 17 or over, then he must stand. Afterwards, the values of both of your hands will be compared to decide on who is the winner.

The winner is the one whose combination is closest to the value of 21 without going over. If, however, anyone goes over 21, they go bust and lose. Thus, players succeed if either they have a combination with a value that’s higher than the dealer’s, or if the dealer goes bust.

Finally, if you both happen to have hands with the same value, then that’s known as a push and no one wins. Instead, your stake will be refunded. Well, that’s all that you need to know in order to play blackjack! However, there’s still some things you ought to know, which we’ll be looking at now.

What Are the Most Common Blackjack Terms? & What Do They Mean?

Now that you know how the game works, the next step is knowing what the terminology used in blackjack means. This is equally important to knowing how to play. In order to help you out, we’ll be explaining what the most common terms mean:

  • Hard/Soft: if you’re in possession of an ace, your hand can be considered as either hard or soft. This is because an ace can have either 2 values: 1 or 11. The value of the ace depends on the overall value of your combination; in other words, the value of the ace will differ depending on what’s better for you. If the ace is worth either 1 or 11, then that’s a soft hand; of, however, the ace can only have a worth of 1, then that’s a hard one.
  • Push: this is when the dealer and the player have hands that are equal in amount. In other words, this is when the game ends in a tie. When this happens, the player’s stake is refunded.
  • Insurance: this is a side bet that you have the option of placing when the dealer’s faceup card is an ace. With this side bet, you’ll be betting on the possibility of the dealer having a blackjack. If your guess is correct, the payout of this side bet is usually 2:1.
  • Surrender: if you believe the house has a better combination than yours and you’re going to lose, you can surrender. When doing so, you’ll be refunded half your stake.
  • Blackjack: also known as a natural, this is the best combination that you can receive as it has a value of 21. When you manage to get this, you’ll generally receive a payout of 3:2.

What Value Do the Cards in Blackjack Have?

No matter what variant you’ll be playing on our casino, the cards will have the same value. Of course, knowing what these values are is extremely important as it will help you when deciding what to do as you’re gaming. You can find the values in the following list:

  • The value of the cards ranging from 2–10 is the same as their associated number; so, for example, the value of 3 is 3.
  • Jacks, queens, and kings all have a value of 10.
  • Finally, aces has a value of either 1 or 11 depending on what’s best for you.
