Blackjack – A brief history of one of the world’s most famous card games

Back in 1700 AD three games were brought together to form what was then an early form of the game of Blackjack. These three games were called “chemin de fer”, “French Ferme” and “vinget-et-un”. But it was not until the 1800’s that a simple rule change in America introduced a 10:1 bonus received when players drew the Jack of Clubs (or Spades) along with the Ace of Spades that the game of Blackjack really took off.
For almost 300 years casino players and gambling fanatics from around the world have enjoyed playing the great game of Blackjack. It first originated in France in the early 1700’s, but quickly grew in popularity and expanded across the world in only a few decades. Blackjack is now found in ALL casinos (both online and offline) and is one of the most popular casino games ever created (only slots games are more popular than Blackjack).

Blackjack – simple to play, difficult to master!

So how do you play online Blackjack? The object of online (and offline) Blackjack is to get a value of cards equal to or as close to 21 while beating the total of the dealer’s cards. To get the best possible card combination it must be remembered that numbered cards are worth their face value and face cards are worth 10 however Aces are worth 1 or 11 (the player decides). If the total of the cards exceeds 21 it is called a “bust” and the player or dealer (depending on who ‘busts”) loses. If the total of the value of cards is less than or equal to 21 the highest total wins. In the event of a tie no one wins and the hand is played again.

Online Blackjack Tips – making a good Blackjack game great!

Online Blackjack tips are not only a valuable way to make the most of a game, but when used in conjunction with a good Blackjack Strategy they can help in gaining the upper hand over a casino.
The following are some of the most important tips to follow when playing online Blackjack:

  • Only play online Blackjack when and if you can concentrate on your game 100%. Players need to make the best possible decisions for every hand.
  • Always remember that every Blackjack game has a different set of rules. If a player is unfamiliar with a casino or a specific table then ALWAYS read the rules of the game first!
  • When winning bet more and when losing bet less! This is a simple tip to follow and will ensure a player stays in the Blackjack game longer. The longer a player plays, the more chance they have of winning.
  • Only double down if you have at least one face card and the dealer's hand is looking weak.
  • Players must remember that this is a dangerous move and if not played correctly this can hurt their bankroll in a VERY bad way!

Online Blackjack – know your game!

“Vegas Style” Blackjack is an American version of the game that allows players to push if both player and dealer bust with the dealers bust being a higher total.
The French (Vingt-et-un) and the German (Siebzehn und Vier) versions of Blackjack (which we don’t offer unfortunately) are also extremely popular. Neither game offers the chance to split the ace, and the ace always counts as eleven. Two Aces also count as a Blackjack in both these games.
One of the most exciting forms of Blackjack is Elimination Blackjack. This is a tournament form of Blackjack and can be found in our Blackjack Tournaments section of this website. It must be noted that Elimination Blackjack has a different strategy to normal Blackjack and players play against each other and not just the house. Please read the Blackjack Tournament rules before playing for the first time.
