Our most popular card game!
Blackjack is simple to learn and one of the most popular card games in the casino. The aim is to have a hand with a total value higher than the Dealer's without going over 21.
If you haven't played before, then you could try out our Learn to Play experience and let one of our experienced croupiers teach you how to play Blackjack and Roulette.
This easy card game is played with four, six or eight standard decks of 52 cards. All cards are scored at their face value, except picture cards (Jack, Queen, King) which have a value of 10, and Aces which count as 1 or 11. The essence of Blackjack is to get nearer to a total of 21 than the Dealer. If your hand goes over 21 it loses.
The game starts when everyone at the table has placed their bets. The Dealer then deals two cards to each Player, and also to him or herself.
Each Player in turn then chooses how they want to play their hand. They can either take another card or stand (stick to the cards they already have).
The best result you can achieve in this game is a two-card 21, or a Blackjack.
If your hand goes over 21, you lose, or go bust.
