Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games in the world and it is offered in every online casino. The rules of the game are quick to learn and good blackjack strategy is easy to master.
The object of the game is to get a higher score than the dealer. This can be done in different ways:
First of all, you beat the dealer by hitting blackjack with your first two cards. This is only possible with an ace and a ten or a face card. You immediately score 21 points. In that case you win one and a half times your bet.
You also win when you score a higher point total than the dealer. So you win, for example, if your cards represent a value of twenty and the dealer has passed nineteen.
Even if you as a player have passed and the dealer ends up with a total score of more than 21 points, you win. You win your bet once in the last two cases.
You lose when you score fewer points with your cards than the dealer. You also lose when you choose to buy a card and your point total exceeds 21.
In that case you are broken. In that case, the dealer immediately takes your bet, it does not matter what the dealer does on his turn.
When the player and dealer have the same number of points, there is a draw. This is also called a “push” or draw. In that case you don’t win, but you don’t lose either. Even if the player and dealer both achieve blackjack, it is a draw.
This does not apply when both you and the dealer break down. Players who play themselves to pieces are immediately out of the game. If the dealer scores more than 21 points, this only affects the players who passed.
