If you’re new to online blackjack, then the first thing you should know is the basics – the blackjack rules. If you have played any blackjack games before then you will be able to tell at an instant what the rule is. The rules of blackjack differ from one casino to another, but basically, blackjack is simply betting against someone else, and if they get to bet more than you do then you win. However, there are a few key differences between online blackjack and live blackjack.
Basic Blackjack Rules: There are no special rules regarding the colour of your skin, and it is illegal (in some places) to check the colour of someone’s skin to read their hand without going into the casino and seeing them. Blackjack Cards: Every player has a deck of 52 cards. Ace cards are worth ten, Aces are worth one or eleven, and Kings are worth either twelve or thirteen. Each player begins with two cards, one from the dealer, and one each from all the other players. To ‘hit’ a card is to ask for a card from the deck without going into the casino.
Online blackjack rules differ slightly from offline blackjack rules, because you do not see the other players at the table. Online blackjack rules usually state that you have to use the dealers’ cards, and they are used as though the cards had been on the table. Once the game is over, the dealers and players leave the room. Blackjack table limits are set by the casinos (usually very restrictively). Blackjack table rules differ from place to place; the minimum amount you can bet, the maximum amount you can bet, and also the maximum amount you have to win.
