Playing blackjack and casino games in a land based casino is not much different than playing at an online casino. Blackjack is one of the most popular games played as well as being an old game. In France in the seventeenth century it was called Vingt et Un or twenty-one. People in the United States began playing it after the French Revolution. It was during the eighteenth century when some gaming restrictions were imposed to discourage corruption without much success.

In the 1930’s casinos opened up in Las Vegas and Blackjack was deemed legal. When this happened Blackjack and other casino games began to spread like wildfire. Today you can play Blackjack at an online casino and not even have to travel to the states where gambling is legal. During this time Las Vegas became the center of casino games for the US.

Still today Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games in the world. You will find Blackjack played at any online casino or land-based gambling establishment as well. The basics of Blackjack are the same no matter where you play. There is a special design to the table with a spot dedicated for the dealer. Every player ha assigned areas on the table or rooms. Up to eight players can play Blackjack at one table. All bets are against the dealer and not the other players.

You begin by purchasing chips from the dealer. You use the chips as bets. The color of the chip indicates its value with white = $1, red = $5, green = $25 and black = $100. You place your bet prior to the cards being dealt. After the bets are placed the dealer gives two cards to each player. Generally he deals the cards to all players face up and the cards he deals himself is one face up and the other face down.

When playing Blackjack all cards are assigned a value from one to eleven. The King, Queen and Jacks are counted as ten and the Ace is eleven points. The goal is to beat the dealer without going over twenty-one. If you go over twenty-one you bust and automatically lose.

You base your strategy of play on what card the dealer has face up. Your choices include standing, splitting, doubling down, surrendering and taking a hit. If you stand you keep the hand you are dealt, you can only split if you receive two of the same cards, double down is to double your bet, you get another card if you take a hit and if you surrender you forfeit half your bet and hand.

If you win you basically double the amount of money you bet. If you get a “Blackjack” you automatically win – unless the dealer has one as well. A “Blackjack” is an Ace along with any ten point card combination. But in any event you do not lose if you have a Blackjack. Blackjack one of the more fun casino games you can play. Whether you play at an online casino or go to Las Vegas the basics of playing Blackjack is the same.
