Blackjack 101
December 2, 2008

Online blackjack, also known as “twenty-one” is one of the most popular forms of online casino gambling. Blackjack offers that perfect combination of being a simple game that is yet strategic and with many different ways to bet it. A great mistake that gamblers make when playing online blackjack is often “out-thinking” the basics of the game and making basic strategy more difficult and complex than it really needs to be. Beyond that another trap that many online blackjack players fall into is that they play to many hands simultaneously. You would be amazed at how fast the bankroll can burn down to nothing playing multiple blackjack hands. Beyond that it takes sharp concentration to handle one hand of blackjack successfully, let alone several at the same time.

Blackjack begins with you getting dealt two cards by the dealer. An ace is worth either one-point or even, your choice. The rest of the face cards, (king, queen, and jack), are worth ten-points. All of the numeric cards are worth the very number on their card. The goal is to get as close to the score of twenty one WITHOUT going OVER that number, which is known as going “bust.” If you are dealt an ace and a face card or ten that is known as a natural, as it’s a perfect twenty-one. Where online blackjack gets tricky is when you are in the sixteen or fifteen area after the first deal. Do you ask for and additional card or not. Seventeen is often more tricky as there is temptation despite the odds. This is what makes online blackjack the popular craze that it is!
