The Rules of Blackjack

The rules of blackjack are incredibly easy to learn.

  • Each player is dealt two cards and must decide whether to ‘hit’ (draw an extra card to your hand), or ‘stand’ (stick with what you have).
  • The magic number is 21, but any total that beats the dealer will do. Just don’t go higher than 21!
  • Aces can be high or low, depending on what you need to win.

Once you’re confident with the rules, you can also start to play with multiple hands.

Key Blackjack Terminology

Whether you’re playing on your own or hitting our live casino tables, here are some key terms you should familiarise yourself with:

  • Bust – yours or the dealers hand goes over 21, and loses.
  • Hard Hand – if you don’t have an ace or your ace is worth one, this is a ‘hard hand’.
  • Soft Hand – If you have an ace currently worth 11, it is a ‘soft hand’.
  • Double Down – after you have your first two cards, you can choose to double down. This means your bet is doubled and you draw one more card to your hand for the final total.
  • Split – if you are dealt a pair, you can opt to split your cards into two separate hands. You’ll need to place an extra bet to match the original wager, then you can play each hand separately.
  • Insurance – protect your hand from a potential blackjack from the dealer by placing insurance on it – usually when a dealer has an ace. This bet is half the amount of the original wager.
  • Push – if you and the dealer have matching hands of 17 or above, the game ends in a draw. Your bet will stay on the table and a new hand will be dealt.

FAQs

Why do they call it blackjack?

The game of blackjack actually got its name after it was introduced to US casinos. Before that, it was known as ‘21’.

In the past, many casinos offered a bonus if your hand had an ace of spades and a ‘black jack’, meaning a jack of clubs or spades. This winning combo was nicknamed ‘blackjack’ – and the name has stuck ever since.

How do you play blackjack online with friends?

The easiest way play with your friends is to join a live table. Get all your friends to sign up to the same site, such as 888casino. Then you can all look to join the same live table.

On 888casino, you can see the number of seats available underneath each live table, as well as the minimum and maximum betting limits.

What does a soft 17 mean in blackjack?

Any hand with an ace worth 11 can be considered ‘soft’. So, if you had a six and ace, you would have a ‘soft 17’.

This matters, as it helps inform your next move. With a normal hand, you may be tempted to stand on 17 – but with a ‘soft 17’ it’s recommended to hit. This is because aces can be high or low, so you have more chance of staying within the 21 limit than going bust.

Read our guide on the 888casino blog for top tips on how to play a soft 17.

What happens if you tie in blackjack?

If you and the dealer tie, your original bet is handed back to you and neither party wins or loses any money. This is often called a ‘push’.

If you and another player successfully beat the dealer, both parties win – regardless of whose hand is higher.

What is Pair Splitting in blackjack?

In most versions of online blackjack, you have the chance to ‘split’ your hand if you are dealt a matching pair. This means you’ll have a second hand equal to your starting wager, giving you an extra chance to beat the dealer.

Should I hit on a 12 in blackjack?

Hitting on 12 is of course a risk, unless you have a ‘soft’ hand with an ace, because if you are dealt a 10, Jack, Queen or King you will go bust. However, there may actually be a higher probability of being dealt a lower card, and getting closer to 21. It all depends on your personal preference, and strategy.

Is blackjack a game of luck?

As with any other classic casino card game, there is always an element of chance to blackjack. However, it is also a game of strategy too – as outcomes depend on the decisions you make based on your hand, and those held by other players.

How do I increase my chances of winning blackjack?

There will always be an element of luck to the game. But by learning the rules, studying the probabilities and reading up on some popular strategies, you can start to make more informed choices at the gaming tables.
