Classic Blackjack online

Blackjack. Pontoon. 21. Blackjack has different names, but this game is one of the most famous casino games. There are many varieties of blackjack. As its name suggests, classic blackjack is considered to be its most popular variety. So why not take a seat at one of our classic blackjack tables and play a few hands.

The rules of the game

Classic blackjack uses eight decks of 52 cards each. All eight decks are shuffled together before each hand begins. The dealer does not receive a closed card. The dealer must deal himself a card at 16 or less and on a soft 17. Such a combination consists of an ace and combined with a second card yields either a 7 or a 17. In blackjack, the winnings are 3 to 2.

If a player's combination loses blackjack, he loses only the mandatory bet. All additional bets, such as doubling and splitting, are returned to the player.

Possible bets

In free classic blackjack, there is a minimum wager. As the hand is dealt, additional betting possibilities appear. For example, a player can double the bet for any two-card hand. This allows you to double the original bet, but it also means that the player must draw another card and then stop regardless of the outcome.

Another option for betting is to split the hand. However, only paired cards and cards of equal value can be split. Example. If you got a 7 and a 7, a queen and a jack or a king and a 10, you can split that combination and play two hands instead of one. To do this, you need to bet an amount equal to the original bet.

There are some important rules for splitting a hand:

  • You can split a hand no more than three times, resulting in 4 hands (except splitting a pair of Aces).
  • Aces may only be split once. Then the player will receive only one card for each divided hand.
  • The player can double the bet for any hand. This includes the possibility of doubling after splitting a non-ace hand.

Gambling Abandonment (Sarrenda) and Insurance

In classic blackjack, a player cannot refuse to play. But a player can buy "insurance" if he believes the dealer will get blackjack. If the dealer gets blackjack and the player has "insurance," the player gets a 2-to-1 payout to the insurance bet.

The theoretical payout to the player in classic blackjack is 99.41%.
