Blackjack: Play Blackjack Online

You may not know everything about online Blackjack , but actually, all you need to know about the game is how to count to 21. Thus, Blackjack is a very simple game and as a result of this you will be able to pick it up in no time.

Your aim in Blackjack is to beat the dealer and you can do this by getting a hand with a higher card value than the dealer's hand value without going over 21.  Example: If you have two kings, your hand will be worth the value of 20, but if the dealer's hand is worth 21, you will be beaten. If your cards are worth 22 or more you are bust and the dealer is automatically the winner.

The cards in Blackjack have the following value: All cards from 2-10 are worth their numbers, while face cards are worth 10. The aces are woth either 1 or 11.

If the sum of your cards is 21 exactly you'll have a Blackjack, but it's important to know that this doesn't necessarily mean that you win. Thus, the dealer may get a Blackjack too. If this situation occurs the hand will be considered a push and no one will win. If you don't want this to happen you can buy “insurance”. If you buy “insurance” you will not lose any money if you and the dealer both gets a Blackjack.

As stated earlier Blackjack is a simple game, but before you start gambling your money, it would be a good idea to practice at the many free sites. After this you'll have a solid idea about the game and the different Blackjack terms.
