When you make your opening blackjack deposit you which trigger your deal. You'll receive two face-up cards while, at the same time, the casino will deal the dealer one face-up card. After you calculate the total sum of the cards that you have received, you must decide whether or not to request additional cards.

 

Card values include face values for cards which display twos through tens, ten points for all face cards (jacks, queens and kings) and either one point or eleven points for aces (if you draw an ace, you can choose whether you want to value it as a one or as an eleven – you're decision will depend on the value that you believe will be most advantageous to your hand.) Your hand will be called a "hard" hand if you assign the ace a value of one point and a "soft" hand if you assign it a value of eleven points.

The goal of blackjack involves building a hand that will beat the dealer's hand while, at the same time, ensuring that your hand comes as close to a total sum value of 21 as possible without exceeding that sum. After revising your bet you can request an additional card -- a "hit" --  or you may decide not to accept any more cards -- to "stand."

After you have completed your play the dealer plays out his hand. When each side has completed their play, the two hands are compared. Whichever hand comes closest to 21 points, but doesn't exceed the total value of 21, wins

Blackjack was originally called "Twenty-One" and today many casinos and gamblers use that name interchangeably with the term "Blackjack."  Twenty-One grew out of an early variation of the game in which a hand that included either of the Ace of Spades plus one of the black Jacks (the Jack of Spades or the Jack of Clubs) would pay out 10x. This variation of Twenty-One no longer exists but gamers continue to refer to the game as "Blackjack" or "Twenty One."  

Numerous additional blackjack variations have evolved over time. Some of these variations have become as popular the basic game of blackjack itself. 

Hi-Lo-13 is a form of European online blackjack in which you make a side wager on your first two cards.  "Hi" involves a wager that predicts that the sum of the first 2 cards will be higher than 13,  "Lo" involves a wager predicting that the sum of the first 2 cards will be lower than 13.  A "13" bet predicts that the sum of the first 2 cards will be exactly 13.

Multi-hand blackjack allows you to play up to 5 hands of online blackjack at one time. Bets vary according to the dealt hands with side bet options.
