Online Casino News - Online Casino Games 101: Blackjack

Online Casino Games 101: Blackjack

by Devon Chappell, News Staff Writer

November 14, 2007

Among online gambling fans, Blackjack is a perennially huge draw. The classic card game that has been enjoyed in land-based casinos for years has managed to migrate to the virtual realm of online casinos, with its popularity undiminished. Like its closely-associated card game sibling, poker, Blackjack has long captivated players for its high stakes and thrilling gameplay. Blackjack games at internet casinos are no different.

Basically, the only thing separating online casino Blackjack from it’s “real life” counterpart is the luxury and convenience enjoyed by the player who can rest at home while making bets! Oh, and if you are lucky enough to find a land-based casino without a continuous card shuffling machine, that would be a difference as well (Online casinos reshuffle cards back into the shoe after every hand). Online casino Blackjack’s goal is precisely the same as the land-based version: to accumulate a hand of cards with a cumulative point value of as close to twenty-one points as possible, without going over (or “busting”).

This delightful online gambling medium was first devised in seventeenth-century France, where a card game named “Twenty-One” was all the rage at the royal court. Back then (as is the protocol at online casinos today), players would vie to get a higher hand than the dealer, with twenty-one being the magical goal. Experts believe that aces being valued at either one point or eleven stemmed from this timeframe, as did the three-to-two payout that is used at online casino tables today.

Many online casinos offer Blackjack titles, but the prospective player should examine their choices carefully to separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. Most online gambling fans hone in immediately on fat payouts, but there is much more to sussing out an exceptional internet casino than just comparing winnings. You will of course, want to find an online casino with a strong reputation for trustworthiness and reliability, too.
