Since the inception of Blackjack, this famous card game has encountered several improvements. Gamers take great pleasure in playing it, so much so that game developers have imagined and created many variations.
Classic Blackjack is played with 1 to 8 decks of 52 cards. If the player has 21 points with the first two cards in the deal (Ace and 10 or Ace and a log), he is said to have made Blackjack. If the dealer has not also made Blackjack, the player wins and wins 3 to 2 of his bet. But in the event of a tie, the player recovers his stake.
If the dealer’s face up card is the Ace, the player can bet for insurance equal to half of his initial bet. In the event that the dealer hits Blackjack, the player wins half the insurance. Otherwise, the player loses his insurance bet.
Apart from that, the player can double his bet or split in case he has a double and make another bet for the new hand.
Spanish Blackjack (Spanish 21)
Spanish 21 is very famous in online casinos. Its primary peculiarity is the fact that all 10 games have been removed from the shoe before. Certainly this decreases the possibility for the player to win. However, to compensate for this, the player can earn bonuses with additional rules.
The first rule is that when the player obtains 21 points, even if the croupier also makes 21 points, it is the player who wins, in addition he gains bonuses which vary according to the conditions that he has met the 21 points. .
With Spanish 21, the player can split as much as he wants up to getting 4 hands and doubling his bet after a split. The player is also authorized to give up if he is not satisfied with these deals, in which case he can only recover half of his stake.
European Blackjack is the closest to classic Blackjack, with a few details. First, the European version is played with 2 decks of 52 cards.
Unlike some varieties, the distribution of cards in European Blackjack is as follows: the dealer gives a first card face up to the players present, and one for him, face up as well. Then he deals a second card to each player. Then, he addresses them individually and in turn, if the player wants to shoot, double, splitter, or stay. Once all the players have passed their turns, it’s now up to the dealer to draw his second card, play and finally compare the result. If he does blackjack, he collects all the players’ bets.
Atlantic City Blackjack
Atlantic City Blackjack is also very famous in online casinos. The aim of the game is always the same for all variations of this famous card game. But with the Atlantic City version, the player has a lot of chance to win because if the dealer has 17 points, he is no longer allowed to draw a card. In addition, the player can double his bet more than once. If he split, he can still double his bet on the new hand. On the other hand, if he still obtains a double, he no longer has the right to split but is obliged to stay.
This version of Blackjack is played with 6 to 8 decks of 52 cards. The peculiarity of this variant is the possibility of playing with two hands.
For example, if in your first hand you have 10 and 5 and in the second hand you have 10 and 6, you can combine the two cards of 10. So in one hand you have 20 points while in the other you have 11. With the latter you will still have the opportunity to draw another card to try to make natural Blackjack.
But beware, it should be noted that with the Switch version, the croupier cannot jump even if his points exceed 21. On the other hand, the gains are not very interesting. If the player wins, he only wins 1 to 1 of his stake instead of 3 to 2.
Vegas Strip Blackjack
Vegas Strip Blackjack is one of the most popular variations of the famous card game. It requires 4 decks of 52 cards. What differentiates this variant from that of the classic version, if the player thinks that the dealer can make Blackjack, he can also play on insurance except that the value of this one must be the same as that of the first bet. In this case if the croupier makes 21, the player will be returned his stake.
When the dealer has reached 17 points, he can no longer draw a new card, so if the player has more points than the dealer but these have not exceeded 21 points, the player wins.
Regarding the payout, with Vegas Strip Blackjack, if the player does Blackjack, he receives 3 to 2 and if he has played on insurance, he will be paid 2 to 1.
