Blackjack – are you up for the challenge?
Ever fancied yourself as a Blackjack whizz, or perhaps, the game always piqued your interest, but just don’t know it enough to take the plunge? Fret no more, as we are here to solve your Blackjack woes.
Our Live Blackjack lobby is brimming with names such as Blackjack Party, Speed Blackjack and Mr Green Live Blackjack, but what does it all mean?
You might have seen a few movies with suave actors sitting at a Blackjack table, asking for a ‘hit’ or to ‘stand’. The oldest casino game in the world is in a league of its own. Unlike some other casino games, Blackjack has a status to it, so it comes as no surprise that players are intrigued by it and want to play it.
How do you play Blackjack?
The game of Blackjack follows a very simple concept, namely to build a hand that totals as close as possible to 21 without going over and having a higher hand value than that of the dealer’s.
You and the dealer are both handed out two cards, with one of the dealer’s cards shown face-up. This gives you a good enough idea of a possible hand value for the dealer. If the dealer has a 10 or an Ace, you know that they are in a better position to get to 21, than if they had an upcard of two.
Even so, you are placing a bet in the hope of beating the dealer and perhaps getting a Blackjack, which gives you a bigger win.
As such, the concept is very simple. Many players also like to take advantage of various side bets, such as insurance, where you are asked to place an additional bet as coverage in the eventually of the dealer having a Blackjack.
Such side bets have a detrimental effect on your bankroll, and are best avoided since the odds are against you on this one.
Knowing the rules to the game and having a strategy in place could help spare your bankroll, especially if you are dealt a bad hand. Bojoko’s guide to online Blackjack covers it all and equips you with the right knowledge and skills to turn you from a novice to a seasoned Blackjack aficionado.
Learn the rules to the world’s oldest casino game
Learning the rules to the game brings you one step closer to achieving a win by making sound decisions. However, there is more to the game than rules and strategies.
Whether you want to test out side bets or have access to a Blackjack cheat sheet, our good friends at Bojoko have also created this Blackjack simulator & trainer, which was designed with the aim of teaching you the rules to the game, strategy and even, let you play free Blackjack rounds. It is a great way to learn the ropes to the game without putting your money on the line.
Online vs Live Blackjack
During these topsy-turvy times, you no longer have to travel to a land-based casino to enjoy your favourite game of Blackjack.
You can either take a virtual seat in front of a real-life dealer at one of our Live Blackjack tables or else, play software-based RNG Blackjack games. The choice is up to you! Both are available here at Mr Green.
However, if you like the thrill and challenge of playing alongside other players, Live Blackjack is the way to go and can be found at our Live Casino. You can find different variations of this game, such as Freebet Blackjack by Evolution Gaming, where you are given the option to split or double down for free provided you have a 9, 10 or 11.
We have partnered up with the big guns and you can find different variations of the game by Evolution Gaming and Pragmatic Play, giving you access to different games with different rules.
Check out the different variants of Blackjack, but most importantly learn properly how the game is played before going all in and placing big bets.
