What is Online Blackjack?
Blackjack is one of the most known card games across the world. In the UK, it also enjoys a substantial fan base. With easy-to-learn rules that can easily be adopted, no wonder this game enjoys such high notoriety. Online blackjack refers to a specific set of variants of this popular game that are played online. Essentially, you play against a computer that uses an RNG instead of a dealer. If you’re looking to play blackjack online, you can do so at Betiton Casino. At our casino online blackjack games come in different versions, which we will discuss shortly.
- How do you beat the dealer
- How do you lose to the dealer?
- How to play your hand
The objective of blackjack is simple: get closer to 21 than the dealer without going over. You first place your bet by choosing the appropriate coin value. The dealer will then deal you, as the player, two cards facing up and two for the dealer – one face up and one face down. Once you have the cards, you need to choose whether you want to hit (request another card), or stand (request no more cards). Some games will have a number of other options that we will discuss later. This works for both live casino as well as casino table games. Both are available at Betiton.
If your initial two cards go over 21, your hand is declared bust and you lose the game. If you request another card and the new total exceeds 21, your hand is also considered bust and you lose to the dealer. If you stand and the dealer’s total is closer to 21 than your total, then the dealer wins. As you can see, blackjack is a game of chance and probability. However, if you know how to play your hand, whether you are playing live blackjack or any of the blackjack casino games available at Betiton.
So how do you play your hand at blackjack? The first thing you should do is understand the different games of blackjack available. We will be discussing these in more depth later on in this article, when to hit, stand, double down, and accept side bets. Some blackjack games a Betiton also allow you to split your cards. Knowing when to do this can help you. Apart from live roulette, at Betiton we also offer a range of fantastic freeplay blackjack games.
Blackjack is perhaps one of the most popular casino games available at Betiton casino. Online blackjack, in particular, has a number of different advantages that you cannot find in the offline version. The most obvious advantage here is the convenience, with online blackjack being available, you can play on your desktop or your mobile with the same gaming experience. Online blackjack can also have a number of different features and side bets, which make the game more fun and exciting, including insurance. Like online slots, blackjack can be played at any time and anywhere, where you can choose from any of the titles available on offer at Betiton Casino.
Different types of online blackjack games
- Double deck
- Multi deck
In double deck blackjack, as the name suggests, only two decks of cards are shuffled and dealt. This happens at the beginning of the game. What makes this game exciting is the correlation between the number of decks and the house edge where the more decks used, the bigger the house edge is. No wonder double deck blackjack is one of the most favoured casino games at Betiton. When speaking of house edge, the subject of card counting is something that invariably comes up. Counting cards is a mathematical methodology that can provide players with an edge equalling to half a percent.
American blackjack is another variation of the game offered at Betiton. It has slightly different blackjack rules; namely, the hole card. In American blackjack, the dealer gets two cards at the same time as the players; one face up and one facing down. The card facing down is called the hole card. If the dealer’s face-up card is an ace, then the dealer is allowed to peak at the face-down card. This means that if the dealer has blackjack, they can terminate the game that much quicker. One of the advantages of this is that it reduces the risk of doubling down when the dealer has a winning hand.
Our live blackjack options are various. Unlike casino blackjack games, live blackjack is streamed live from studios and casinos around the world. Here, you connect to a real-life dealer just as if you are in an actual casino. Of course, the game is streamed in full high definition, with some titles even providing players with the opportunity to chat with the dealer. You can find different blackjack titles, including single deck game blackjack. Live blackjack is also available on Betiton’s mobile casino for true top-notch entertainment on the go. Give it a try to experience the magic of our live casino.
Play Blackjack Online from your Mobile
As we mentioned earlier, one of the advantages of playing online blackjack is the convenience of it. To this end, you can also play blackjack at Betiton’s mobile casino. Here, you can expect excellent graphics regardless of whether the mobile device is an Android or iOS. Indeed, our mobile website is platform-independent, giving you the freedom to play your favourite blackjack game on your preferred device. With many gamblers preferring mobile devices over their desktop counterparts, many blackjack games have been designed with mobile users in mind, allowing players to get the full blackjack experience on a much smaller screen.
