Playing BlackJack is not difficult
How do you play BlackJack? Surely you have asked yourself this question thousands of times. It is a very famous Casino game , but perhaps one that has been slow to become popular in Spain. With the advent of Internet Casinos and online and live BlackJack , the distance between the game and potential players has been greatly reduced.
And it is that, as we have already told you once, the BlacJack is, of all the Casino games , the most popular within the card games (yes, even more than poker, although it is true that it has cut distance in recent times). And it is because it is an entertaining, dizzying game and, above all, very easy to learn, understand and master.
Let’s understand how to “master” knowing how to play quite clearly, not becoming a BlackJack cracks. The basic rules of the game are simple (we will explain them in a moment) and the mechanics are simple enough that you do not have to think as much as in poker, for example.
So, if from time to time you like to play in the online casino and you want to have a lot of fun without excessive effort, we are going to explain how to play BlackJack. As they say, “chew” so that everyone understands.
Let’s go there!
How to Play BlackJack: Basic Rules
Let’s see. Let’s start at the beginning of the principles.
- BlackJack normally has a maximum of 7 players
- Players play with 2 starting and uncovered cards on the table. The dealer plays with a face card and a covered card
In BlackJack , also called Twenty-one , the fundamental objective is to add a value as close to 21 without going overboard (if it is exactly 21, better than better, never again). For what?
- Exceed the score to the dealer’s hand (which can never be more than 21)
- DO NOT go over 21 points when the dealer’s hand DOES pass them
As you can see, in BlackJack the player basically competes against the dealer (a figure that, by the way, should be studied in depth, something for which we have prepared a great tutorial ).
To achieve this, as we said, we will have to form hands whose scores bring us as close as possible to said figure of 21 points. Each card in the (English) deck has a default value:
- The AS scores 1 or 11 based on the remainder of the player’s current hand
- Figures score 10
- The rest of the cards in the deck score their face value
Having explained all this, let’s put ourselves in a situation: we have the croupier in front of us and the rest of the players next to us. They have already dealt us 2 cards, discovered, and the rest of the players and the dealer have, in turn, theirs. How does the game continue?
- Ask: the croupier gives us a card, which is added to our hand (exposed)
- Stand: stop playing until the countdown, once the round is over
- Double bet: the player receives an additional card in exchange for doubling his bet
- Give up
- Split pairs: If you have 2 equal cards, you can choose to split them into two different hands. Each hand carries its bet separately
Win / lose
As we explained at the beginning, a player wins if the following assumptions are met:
- He has not exceeded 21 points and his score, whatever it is, exceeds that of the croupier
- Reach 21 points with a BlackJack (now we will explain what this play consists of)
Similarly, you lose if :
- It is surpassed in score by the croupier, and he does not exceed 21 points
- If you go over 21 points
What is ‘having BlackJack’?
A BlackJack is considered when a player adds exactly 21 points naturally, with only 2 cards , said hand formed by a figure (10) and an ACE (11).
Well … now that we know, roughly, how to play BlackJack , what should we do? Just start playing? Not at all! It takes a good deal of time, patience, and a lot of practice to become proficient in a room through a beginner’s BlackJack strategy , and then end up being a good player.
Also (and we have already explained this in other tutorials on how to play BlackJack ), we must always bear in mind that it is a very mathematical game . If you have a pinch of mental avidity, it is very likely that the player will quickly adapt to the mechanics of the game, narrowing down probabilities and plays with simple head calculations.
But beware! This does not mean that we are already experts, or that we are going to become millionaires by playing BlackJack. As we say, you always have to play with a lot of head and responsibility, and spend a lot of time and practice before being regular BlackJack players in an online casino.
