Learn the Basics First
Before you go chasing the luck of the Irish with all the distinct versions of Blackjack that are available with us, we suggest you learn how the classic game works. Once you’ve got a solid understanding of this, you’ll do better with other variations and enjoy them more.
The objective in all Blackjack games is to get a hand total of 21 or below, and beat the dealer’s hand at the same time. In these games, royal cards are worth 10, number cards are worth their face value and, depending on what is best in the hand, aces are worth 1 or 11.
To start with, you’ll place your bet and then be dealt 2 cards as will the dealer. You can see your 2 cards, of course, and one of the dealer’s will be face-up so that you can see that too. Based only on this information, you need to decide what to do next.
Make Your Move in Online Blackjack
The moves you can make differ between different variants of Blackjack games, but your general options are to Hit, Split, Double Down and Stand. If you Hit, you simply get another card, and if you Double Down you double your wager and get another card. Splitting can only be done if you have a pair of same-value cards, and involves splitting the pair into 2 new hands and dealing a card to each of them. Finally, when you’re ready to end your turn, you Stand.
At the end of the round, all cards are revealed. You win with a 1:1 payout if your hand total is under 21 but greater than the dealer’s, or under 21 when the dealer hand is over 21. If you manage to get 21 on the nose, you’ve got Blackjack and win a stellar payout of 3:2!
Irresistible Online Blackjack Games
Blackjack’s unique blend of chance and strategy is what makes it so popular with players in Ireland and the rest of the world. You can’t influence the cards that you’re dealt, but you do get to decide on the moves you make after you’ve seen them. Players spend hours perfecting their Blackjack strategy, and they love every second!
Strategy charts that show you exactly what move to make for every possible 2-card combination you could be dealt are very helpful, especially for beginners, but they are limited and are no good after your first move. Use them and any other advice that you find, and put the time in to see what works best for you.
Blackjack Games for All Preferences
The different Blackjack versions all have slightly different rules, including the hand totals that players and dealers must Hit or Stand at. What all the games at Cabaret Club Casino have in common is that they are beautifully designed, with realistic graphics and sounds, and function perfectly smoothly.
The special features in each game make things even better, and you’ll soon feel like you’re sitting at a Blackjack table no matter where you are in Ireland when you play. Start trying them all out at our casino now, and see which is your favourite.
