Blackjack Games at Casino King
Blackjack is a hugely popular card game that is enjoyed by players in casinos across the world. There are many reasons for its popularity but chief among them is the simplicity of the game, the fast-paced action and the chance to win a huge amount of money.
How to Play
Blackjack is based upon a very simple concept. Players need to build a hand of cards that is as close in value to 21 as possible but without exceeding it. The cards 2-10 are valued at face value, the Jack, Queen and King are all worth 10 and the Ace is worth either 11 or 1.You play Blackjack against the dealer and in some cases other players. At the start of each round you need to place your chips in the betting area and then the cards are dealt. You will receive two face-up cards while the dealer receives one face-up card and one facedown card. You then need to decide whether to Draw an additional card or Stand. Once you have finished building your hand the dealer will play their hand. As a rule, the dealer will always Draw to at least 16 and Stand on all 17s. A winning hand is paid out at 1:1 except Blackjack, which is a hand consisting of an Ace and a Ten card, and this pays out at 3:2.
Over the years many different versions of Blackjack have been developed and a number of these will offer special features. For instance, most games of Blackjack allow you to play multiple hands simultaneously which means that in each round you have many more chances to win. Some versions of the game, such as Blackjack Surrender will have special side bets that you can place. For example, Blackjack UK allows you to take out Insurance against the dealer having blackjack or while Perfect Blackjack allows you to place a bet on the first two cards dealt being a pair. Furthermore, Progressive Blackjack gives you the option to place a side bet to be in with a chance of winning a progressive jackpot.
