Understanding Online Blackjack
If you are still learning the basics of Blackjack, then playing for free is a great way to hone your skills. Once you have mastered the basics of the game, you can swap over and start winning some serious cash.
While there are many different versions of Blackjack available in Canada, every game has a basic set of rules that form the basis of the Blackjack strategy.
Blackjack is a card game where the object is to beat the dealer. This is done by creating a point score of 21 points, or as close to 21, without going over. The online version of Blackjack is played in the exact same way as any Blackjack game found in a Canadian land-based casino. The game consists of a single Blackjack table with the dealer at the top, the game buttons at the bottom and the virtual casino chips lined up along the side of the table. The game begins with you placing your bet on the table. To do this, simply click on the virtual chips and place them in the demarcated betting area. Its that easy!
Back to blackjack
Blackjack originated in card games from France and Spain, with Spain being (most likely) the oldest ancestor, resulting in the game, “Vingt-et-un” (“21”), which made its way across the world to the US. Americans are credited with giving 21 the name of “blackjack” by recognising the Ace of Spades and a black jack as being the definitive hand. Blackjack has continued to evolve, with a variety of key phrases being used to describe certain aspects of the game and a number of advanced play options being developed along with blackjack online.
Getting started with online blackjack
The game of blackjack is all about the face values of individual cards, or “card values”. When you play blackjack online your hand of cards could contain Royals (Jack, King, Queen) scoring 10 or 2-10, Aces, scoring at either 1 or 11 (player or dealer's choice) or according to the number value of the cards (2 through 10). You are dealt two cards, and may request to “hit”, or to ask for another card or to “stand”, to not ask for another card. To go “bust” means your hand has exceeded 21.
Online Blackjack Strategies
Once you have placed your bet, you can then click on the deal button. The dealer will then deal you two cards face up and himself two cards with one card facing up. This up-facing card forms the basis of all Blackjack strategies. In Canada, there are plenty of strategies floating around including the standardised Blackjack strategy that all professionals use. The aim here is to analyse your hand, and compare what you have to the dealers up-facing card. If you have a low scoring hand and the dealer has a high card, it is better to take another card and try and improve your score.
If you have a high scoring hand and the dealer is showing a low card, it is best to stick and see if the dealer can beat your hand. In each Blackjack game, you have the option of sticking, hitting, splitting your hand or doubling down. Knowing when to hit or stick is the crucial part of the strategy and one that can influence your long-term win. Once you are happy with your hand, the dealer will flip over his down-facing card and play out the game.
Advanced blackjack options
Standard advanced online blackjack options available at Spin Palace Casino include “splitting”, “doubling down” and “insurance”. Two kings in the same hand, for example, can be split to be played as two separate hands. One card gets the original bet and the other card an equal bet. If your first two cards total 9, 10, or 11, you can double down your bet by placing a bet equal to the original. You then receive one more card, face down, which is revealed at the end of the hand. Insurance is a side bet. When the dealer’s up card is an Ace, you can wager up to half your original bet that their down card has a value of 10. Try these options in demo mode in our online casino if you need to see how this works.
Get strategic with blackjack online
Blackjack strategy is an essential part of enjoying the game of blackjack online. The basic rules will get you started, but adopting basic blackjack strategy will contribute to a more pleasing gaming experience. The first principle to remember is never to take a card if by doing so you could go bust. The dealer's up card must always be taken into account. If it is a 7 or higher (or an Ace), it's recommended that you hit until you reach 17 or more. Likewise, if the dealer's u pcard is a 4, 5 or 6, it's better to stand once you hit 12 or more. The goal then is for the dealer to hit and to go bust. If the dealer's up card is 2 or 3, stop on 13 or higher. If you have a soft hand (one that includes an Ace) that means you should hit until you reach 18 at least. Always split a pair of Aces or 8s and remember to double down on 11. Once you get the hang of these essentials, you'll find your online blackjack game at Spin Palace Casino is likely to improve.

Whatever type of 21 you are after, we’ll ensure that you enjoy playing online!
