Black Jack rules and info to play Black Jack at online Casinos:

Black Jack is for sure one of the simplest but at the same time one of the most exciting Casino games. Black Jack is also known as 17 and 4 and together with Poker it’s one of the world’s most popular card games. The goal of the game is to get a overall card value of 21 or as close as possible to 21 without exceeding this value. A “Black Jack” is a unbeatable hand, containing a court card (king, queen, jack) and an ace or ace and ten.



Black Jack rules – card values:

2-10: the value of the cards matches with the imprinted value from 2-10
court cards: 10 points
ace: optional 1 or 11 points

Black Jack rules – course of the game:

The Croupier, who is replaced by a virtual Croupier at online Casinos, deals out two uncovered cards to the player, and one covered and one uncovered card to himself. Now you have to sum up the total value of your cards and decide if it’s better to take another card (hit) or to keep the current hand (stand). You have to make your decision by icluding the Croupier’s card in your thoughts. You have the chance to hit as often as you want, but keep in mind that you may not exceed a total number of 21, otherwise it’s “bust” and you have lost. If you once decided to stand, it’s the croupier’s turn, who will try to get closer to 21 but he also may not exceed this value. If the croupier’s hand is lower than yours or if he busts you have won.

Black Jack rules – betting options at Black Jack:

bet:

at the beginning of each Black Jack game you have to choose the stake of your decision. At online Casinos this procedure is made by clicking the particular jeton on your screen.

hit:

you can take an additional card as often as you want, but you always have to be aware not to increase an overall value of 21

stand:

once you think that you hold a good hand or that the risk of a hit is too high you should decide to stand.

double down:

after you got your first two cards you can double your stake. If you decide to double down, you only get one more card and than it’s the croupier’s turn.

split:

if you get two cards of the same value at the beginning of the Black Jack game, you can decide to split them and play each card seperately.

insurance:

if the first uncovered card of the croupier is an ace, you can decide to contract insurance. By doing so, you make a second bet against the croupier if he will get a Black Jack or not.
