Blackjack is a famous card game that has been around for centuries. Unlike most card games players do not play against each other, instead, they play against the dealer.

Played with one or more packs of cards (52 cards per deck) each player and the dealer begins with 2 cards. Blackjack is a card game where the strategy is based on mathematics. Blackjack is a fun game for all players to participate in as even though it requires skill, it is easy to get the hang of the basics.

The Strategy behind Blackjack

To enjoy a game of Blackjack you need one dealer and a minimum of one player(s). 

Each player will be dealt two cards, including the dealer. 

The dealer will be dealt one card which is facing up and one which faces down. The idea of the game is to make ‘21 (Blackjack)’ with the cards you are dealt with. 

If you are dealt low numbers then do not panic you will have a chance to pick up more cards. 11 is considered a low number and means you can pick up an additional card without worrying about going bust (going over 21). 

Once you are dealt your cards you then have several options. Stand, Hit, Split and double down are you four options once you have been dealt with your cards. 

  • Hit: The term ‘Hit’ is used when you want to take an additional card from the dealer.
  • Stand: ‘Stand’ is used when you do not want to pick up any more cards. 
  • Double Down: If a player 'Double Downs' this means they commit to standing after they have been dealt an additional card. They can also increase their initial bet by 100%.
  • Split: If you are dealt with two high cards ( Q / K / J / 10 / A ) you can choose to Split your cards. By splitting your cards you mean you are now playing with two hands which you can place bets on. 

By splitting your hand when dealt two large numbers can help increase your chances of winning the round. 

  • Busted: If a player or the dealers go Bust, this means they have exceeded 21. 
  • Insurance: During a round of Blackjack, you can also play side bets and put down insurance. Side bets are made up of bets which players make to determine whether or not they think they can succeed in beating the dealer or not. 

The insurance is played on a 2:1 ratio meaning you would receive €2 for every €1. IT is not recommended to play a side bet each round as it is not always guaranteed to payout. 

All the cards in the deck are worth their card value, except J, Q, K which count as 10 each and Ace is worth 1 or 11.
