Blackjack’s skill factor and quick pace are just a few of the reasons why it has become the most widely played casino banking game in the world. At InterCasino, though, you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your own home to test your skills at the tables and feel the rush of a winning hand. Take your pick from our variety of exciting blackjack variations and you could be well on your way to the session of a lifetime.
While InterCasino offers over a dozen different blackjack games, all are based on similar, easy to learn rules. The goal of the game is simple: to make a hand higher than the dealer’s without busting. You can achieve this by making a hand with a higher point score than the dealer, getting 21 (blackjack) on the first two cards, or by allowing the dealer to draw cards which produce a hand exceeding 21.
Face cards are valued at 10 points, with aces counting for 1 point or 11 points, depending on the player’s preference. All other cards are equal to the numeric value printed on the card.
To make a wager in online blackjack, first select one of the chip denominations which appear to your left. Next, click inside the betting circle in front of you until you arrive at your chosen bet amount.
After you’ve placed your bet, you will be dealt two cards face up; the dealer will receive one card face up and one facedown. Now you’ll have the option to Stand, Hit, Double Down, or Split (if your two cards are of the same rank). Once you’ve chosen to Stand without having busted, the dealer will reveal his hole card and Draw or Stand, depending on the specific rules of the game. Typically, you will be paid 1:1 for a win, 3:2 for a blackjack, and Push on all ties.
Many of our blackjack games offer features which can enhance your gameplay and help you make just the right bet. Activate autostrategy and you’ll be able to instruct the game on how you would like to play in certain situations. The game will then use your rules to play automatically, saving you time and shielding you from misclicks.
Now that you’ve had a crash course in this classic game, put your newfound knowledge to the test at one of our play money or real money blackjack tables.
