To play blackjack online, it is important to understand the rules of the game. This is especially beneficial when it comes to learning the different variations and understanding the basic strategies that help you decrease the house edge and improve your odds of winning. The aim of the game is to hold a hand with a total value as close to 21 as possible without going over, or bust. Play blackjack at Roxy Palace for the chance to practice the art of the game using the free mode for risk-free gameplay before betting any real money.
The rules of the game are very straightforward, which is one of the reasons the game is so popular. To begin, you must place your bets before you are dealt two face up cards while the dealer receives one card face up, and one faced down. Players always play against the dealer and never against other players. Once you have been dealt your card, there are a number of actions you can take.
Surrender - In some cases, players can surrender your hand for the cost of half the bet. Some casinos allow for an early surrender while some only allow a late surrender.
Insurance - This is a side bet that can be placed against the dealer having Blackjack. Insurance can be placed when the dealer's upward facing card is an Ace. Insurance costs half your original bet to win your insurance bet; the dealer must have blackjack. If not, you will lose your insurance bet.
Double down - This action allows you to double your bet and receive an additional card at the end of your turn. This is only available when you still have two cards while some games only allow you to double down on particular hands.
To land a winning hand, players must either ‘hit’ to receive additional cards or 'stand' to keep the cards you are dealt. The dealer must play his hand in an attempt to outdo the player, although in many variants of the game the dealer must stand on soft 17. If either the dealer or the player goes over 21, they go bust and lose the game. The great thing about online casinos is that players can enjoy a wide variety of online blackjack games in one convenient location without ever leaving the comfort of their homes. You can pick and choose the variation you prefer, where there are quite a few available, including Atlantic City, European, Vegas Strip and Live Dealer versions. Check out our games lobby and find a game that suits your needs.
Split - Players can split your hand into two separate hands when your first two cards are of equal value. These hands are then played as independent hands, which can be further split.
Hit - You may hit to receive one more card until you stand or go bust
Stand - This is when you decide to keep whatever cards you have been dealt and receive no more.
Once the player has played your hand, the dealer will play his hand. The two hands are compared to determine the winner.
