ABC Of How To Play Online Blackjack Games

Blackjack is a simple game and does not require much understanding. To some extent it depends on your luck on a particular day, but a proper planning and some risk can ensure a big win. So, let's see what this is and how the Blackjack Game is played.

The rules of the Blackjack games are:

Once wager is made, dealer will deal/distibute two cards, initially, to all the players, including themselves.

Players need to decide if they want to stand (don't want another card) or hit (want another card whose value will be added to that of initially dealt two cards) depending on the values of those card in their hands. But the idea is the total value of the cards must never cross 21 in any round

Players are playing against the dealers too that means players also try to reach closer to 21 (and not more).

Once two cards are dealt, a player can make side bet or additional bet based on players' first two cards (which is not shown by players, but player is free to take a guess and do mental calculation), and dealer's upcard (showing card).

Depending upon the combination of cards, player or the dealer wins. The amount of wins depands on the type of side bets and hand bet.
