Blackjack (or “21 Card Game”) is popular for three reasons: Firstly, it is an easy game to play and so appeals to players from all levels of experience. Secondly, and equally as appealing, there is an element of skill that is involved in a game of Blackjack, which engages a level of fun and anticipation. Thirdly, the element of mystery behind each turn-of-the-card gives the player the full ability to beat the game, through his/her strategic and well placed choices.

The rules of online Blackjack are simple…to win the game by your hand beating the dealer’s hand. The game starts with the player being dealt two cards. You can beat the dealer’s hand in any of the following three ways:

  1. If your first two cards total 21 altogether – this is called a “blackjack”.
  2. If you reach a score higher than the dealers without exceeding 21.
  3. If the dealer’s hand exceeds 21
