European Blackjack online is one of the most popular alternative versions of the Blackjack card game family. The European Blackjack game is similar to traditional Blackjack, with a few variations in rules. The most noteworthy of these rules is that the dealer receives their pair of cards with one face down. Therefore, neither the dealer nor player know if the dealer has a blackjack until this card is revealed at the end of the game.
Part of European Blackjack’s online appeal is its added features that can make for a more complex, rewarding play experience. At The Hippodrome Online Casino, such extras include the Surrender, Double Down and Split rules.
The surrender rule, is, as you may imagine, a way for a player to exit the game. If a player has a bad hand and anticipates losing, they can save half of their stake by surrendering.
To split in a game of European Blackjack online means to divide your hand into two hands, with an additional card for each dealt. A mandatory bet is placed on the new hand, equal to that which you bet on your original hand.
Doubling down in a European Blackjack game means doubling your bet. This rule is best deployed when you feel there is a high likelihood that your bet is going to win.
How To Win At Online Casino Blackjack
To win in any form of Online Casino Blackjack, your hand must either total 21 or be closer to the target figure than the dealer’s. In the event of both yours and the dealer’s cards totalling 21, a draw is called and the bet is void. This applies to traditional Blackjack online, European Blackjack online, Atlantic City Blackjack online and Live Blackjack online.
Best Strategy for Online Blackjack
While there is no way to guarantee a win in Online Casino Blackjack, there are strategies you can employ that could increase the probability of victory. One of the most important strategic aspects when playing Blackjack online is knowing when to hit or stand.
If the dealer has any card worth 10, they have a relatively high chance of scoring 16 or above. Therefore, when playing at any variation of the Blackjack online casino table, basic strategy advises you to only stand if you have a hand scoring 17 or above. The same rule of thumb applies if the dealer holds an ace.
Four, five and six are not the best cards for the dealer, so the key here is to ensure you don’t exceed 21. Instead, look for an opportunity to stand at 12 or above, while hitting on eight or less. Remember, the dealer has to hit in any blackjack card game online.
The lower the dealer’s lowest value card, the more likely it is you should stand. If the dealer, has a three or two, stand at thirteen or above, while hitting on nine or lower.
To split or not to split? It’s best to avoid splitting if you have a hand that totals 10, whether you have two fives, one ten or one jack, queen or king. Two nines is also a strong hand, although it’s advisable to avoid splitting in this case, as well as for two fours. The reason being is that 18 is considered an excellent, although not perfect, score – and a total of eight gives you a strong chance of reaching 18, with so many cards worth 10 in the deck.
On the other hand (no pun intended), many players always choose to split if they are dealt two aces. This is because there aren’t many aces in the deck, so it’s useful to spread them out to take advantage of any tens that come your way. Another popular hand to split is two eights – their total of 16 isn’t a particularly good score to finish on, and there’s a low probability of receiving a five to hit 21, and you’re more likely to go bust. Because low value cards are rare, players often choose to split them, in order to have extra chances of taking advantage.
