The Best Online Blackjack
River Belle is committed to delivering nothing but the best gaming, and that includes the online Blackjack games we have for you. The game had its origin and early development in Europe, and then underwent a few more changes after players took it to North America. This means that the different Blackjack games you can play at our online casino offer a variety of playing styles.
In European Blackjack, the dealer gets one card to begin with, whereas you get 2. The dealer’s second card is dealt only once you have made your move. In American Blackjack, you and the dealer each get 2 cards at the initial deal. Depending on the value of the dealer’s face-up card, the dealer might check for Blackjack before you have even made a move, which really turns up the thrills.
We even have online Blackjack games that feature bonus payouts, side bets, and other innovations. You can also find multiplayer editions of the game, and enjoy the social side of playing 21 with other players from Bermuda. If you really want to shake up your gaming, you can participate in River Belle’s online Blackjack tournaments and see how you measure up against other players.
Introduction to Online Blackjack
Blackjack is also known as 21 because that is the maximum number of points needed to win a hand. If neither you nor the dealer get to 21, the hand that is closest to that number will win. Whichever version you play, you will start off with 2 cards, both of which are dealt face-up. Just like Baccarat, Blackjack is a card comparing game, but one in which you can use skill to influence the outcome.
Most online Blackjack strategies suggest that, before you make your first move, you need to consider not only the value of your own hand, but the value of the dealer’s 1 face-up card as well. If you are confident that your hand has what it takes to beat the dealer, regardless of the dealer’s second card, you can play it as is.
Cards 2 to 9 are worth their face value in points, while Aces are worth either 1 or 11 points depending on other cards in your hand, and Jacks, Queens, and Kings are worth 10 points.
Online Blackjack Moves
If you think that you stand a good chance of improving the total and beating the dealer that way, you can improve your hand’s value by hitting for another card, doubling down for another card, or splitting your hand, and getting more cards to build 2 new hands. The dealer’s face-down card will be revealed, or the second card be dealt, once you have made your move.
If the hand you dealt is worth 21 points, it is a natural Blackjack, and wins the highest payout automatically. If your hand wins with less than 21 points, you get paid out 1:1.
