If you have never played blackjack before it can be a bit daunting to start. It is especially scary if you go into a casino and sit at the table for the first time. Which is why it helps to play blackjack online before you venture into the casino in “real life”.
Online blackjack is a lot of fun, but you should also remember that online blackjack involves a lot of skill. Take a look at these starter points so you can get up and running, and have fun playing blackjack and hopefully winning big.
How to Make Bets on Blackjack
Blackjack played at online casinos start with you picking how much you want to bet on a hand. The different ranges you can bet will depend on the different casino you are playing, but you will soon realise that there are common amounts for each bet. You need to place your bet and then press the “deal” button in order to get your cards.
How to Play Your Hand
So once the cards have been dealt you will get the choice of either Hit, Stand, and Double Down. You will also have the chance to Split if you get a pair. You choose your option using the relevant buttons onscreen and you will be dealt your cards. Depending on how the hand plays you will either win money or your will lose your stake.
How to Get Help
As with playing all casino games online, it is a good idea to familiarise yourself with the screen and the different commands before you start to play. It is even better to play for fun while you are learning the rules and the strategies. There should also be a help screen you can access during the game if you are unsure of anything. If there is no help screen offering this information, you should have access to a list of the different card values plus how to win and what the rules are. You can consult this as you practice play.
Know How to Deposit and Withdraw
As well as knowing the rules of the game, make sure you are familiar with how to deposit funds into your account so you have enough to wager with, and how to withdraw funds when you win. You should definitely find this out before you sign up to play at a certain casino since different casinos have different rules about how and when money can be deposited and withdrawn. Check that the casino provides access to the methods that you will use.
