Blackjack, like roulette, is one of the all time classics of casino play around the world. It’s easy to learn, yet engaging thanks to the different strategies, tactics, and hence odds you can employ as you play. For those who want to combine the convenience of online play with the feel of a real casino, we recommend Live Blackjack, featuring a Live Dealer and real-time play streamed through the Internet directly to your PC, smartphone, or tablet.
To play Live Blackjack, simply go to the CasinoClub lobby and choose the Live Blackjack game that suits your style of play including:
- Table limits
Once you select a game, you can immediately see whether this game is currently active and available for you to place your bets. At this point you can choose the stakes you want to start with, or wait for the end of the round. While you wait, you can watch the live dealer at work, dealing, collecting cards, and actively communicating with the players throughout the game.
Once a green bar appears, that means a new round of games is beginning. After watching a bit of the live action unfold, you should now be ready to participate. Keep in mind, like regular online play each action is done through the screen (by clicking your desired bet amount, next move, etc.), and not by communicating directly with the dealer.
Once the game of Live Blackjack starts, the dealer deals you your cards, which you’ll see on your screen. You now need to decide how you want to proceed. You can:
- Use the double and hit for another card
The rules of Live Blackjack are no different from those of a standard blackjack game.
The variety of blackjack played in our live casino is the French version, which has 312 cards in total, consisting of 52 card types/values (i.e. a standard deck).
The goal is always to achieve 21 with your hand, or a value closer to 21 than the dealer. It is important that you not go over 21; otherwise you bust.
The numbers 2 through 10 are interpreted as their corresponding numerical values. Jacks, Queens and Kings are valued at 10. An Ace is either 1 or 11, depending on how it would be better played, in any given hand.
Bottom line, for blackjack in particular, the live version of the online game gives you a unique, highly engaging experience – through live dealing of the cards, interaction with the dealer, and quick action that always thrills.
