Live Blackjack April 5, 2018
UK’s online casino – Aspers Casino presents Live Blackjack created by Evolution Gaming. Live Blackjack is about real dealers and real actions. This game can be played on your mobile phones, tablets and desktop.
Ever wondered where Blackjack originated from? Blackjack came from France and Spain. In Europe, it was called “Vingt- Un” or “Vingt et Un” means 21. The player had to decide whether to stand or hit. Vingt-Un or 21 was then replaced by Blackjack. The objective is to beat the dealer with a value of 21 but not over.
Once you reach your desired Blackjack table, you are given 15 seconds to place your bet and the dealer starts drawing cards. Your aim is to reach a card point higher than the dealer but it should not be greater than 21. The game is between you and the dealer. Live Blackjack is played with 8 standard 52 decks of cards. The card values are as follows:
- Two to Ten cards are worth their face values
- Face cards like Jacks, Queens and Kings are each worth 10
- Aces are worth one to 11 – depending on which card is more favourable.
After finalising your bet amount, the dealer will hand a face-up card to each player and face down to himself. If the value of your two cards hand is equal to 21, you win the Blackjack.
Insurance – If the dealer has an Ace, you are given the option to buy an “Insurance” – that is to cancel the risk that the dealer has a blackjack, even if you have a blackjack too! The price for the insurance is half of your bet amount. If you and the dealer both have blackjacks, the game ends and your bet is returned.
Double Down, Hit or Stand – If the dealer doesn’t have blackjack on the two initial cards, players are given the opportunity to improve on their cards values. If your values don’t equal to 21, you can Double Down; double your bet and be dealt with only one additional card to your hand. You can hit more cards if you are not satisfied and stand if you are satisfied with the cards.
If your sum exceeds 21, you lose your bet on that hand. Live Blackjack includes Side Bets Option – Perfect Pairs and 21+3.
