European BlackJack Online Game
Blackjack is undoubtedly the most popular card game across the globe, but have you ever tried European blackjack? The game of European blackjack is quite similar to the standard blackjack and is played by the same rules. The only main difference is that in the European blackjack, the dealer doesn’t get the second card until all the players have been dealt their cards. The dealer receives his second card only after all other players have taken their playing decisions, including splitting and doubling.
The main object of the game is to form a hand that either totals 21 or is greater than the dealer’s hand without going over 21. European blackjack is quite popular amid online gamblers, simply because it requires more skills than luck to make a sequence of winning hand.
How to play European Blackjack?
Place a bet: To start, you need to place a bet by clicking on the chips and hitting the ‘DEAL’ button. When you click ‘deal’, you’re dealt two cards face up while the dealer will receive just one up card. You can decide to stand, hit, double or split, depending upon the total of your hand. If you choose to ‘HIT’ and your hand’s total go beyond 21, you bust and lose the game.
Stand: If you think you hand is good enough to beat the dealer’s, click on the ‘STAND’ button.
Hit: If you’re not satisfied with your hand and want to draw another card to improve it, press ‘HIT’ button.
Double: You can ‘DOUBLE’ your bet and receive one more card. Remember, in European blackjack you can only double your bet on a hard total of 9, 10, or 11.
Split: You can split your hand in two, if you’ve been dealt two identical cards and play each as the first card of two hands. When you split your hand you can continue to ‘hit’ for each hand until you win or bust. But if you split on two aces, you can’t hit more than one card on each hand.
After you’ve played your cards, the dealer is dealt his second card. If the dealer gets a blackjack, i.e. a combination of ace and any card valued 10, you lose. Alternatively, if the dealer chooses to ‘hit’ and his hand total goes above 21 he bust and lose automatically.Watch Consumed (2015) Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
When you and the dealer get same hands, it is a tie or PUSH. In this case the player gets his/her bet back.
Thus, there are three ways to win in the European Blackjack game:
1. When you get a blackjack.
2. When your hand is better than the dealer’s hand.
3. When the dealer bust and you don’t.
