At Casino Extreme, players have access to a variety of Blackjack game versions to suit their preferences. Some of the popular Blackjack variations available include:

Classic Blackjack

Atlantic City Blackjack

Atlantic City Blackjack is a popular variation commonly played in land-based casinos in Atlantic City. This version allows late surrender, doubling down on any two cards, and splitting up to three times.

Vegas Strip Blackjack

Vegas Strip Blackjack is a variation commonly played in Las Vegas casinos. It is played with four decks of cards and offers liberal rules such as doubling down on any two cards, splitting up to three times, and the dealer standing on soft 17.

Pontoon

Pontoon is a variation of Blackjack that originated in the United Kingdom. In Pontoon, both dealer cards are dealt face down, increasing the suspense. The objective remains the same – get as close to 21 without going over.

How to Play Blackjack

Playing Blackjack is relatively simple, and the objective is to beat the dealer’s hand without exceeding a total of 21. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to play:

1. Place Your Bet: Start by placing your desired bet within the table limits. At the beginning of each round, players are dealt two cards face-up, while the dealer receives one face-up card.

2. Calculate Your Hand: The value of each card is determined as follows – numbered cards are worth their face value, face cards count as 10, and an Ace can be counted as 1 or 11, depending on what benefits the hand.

3. Decide on Your Move: As a player, you have several options:
– Hit: Request additional cards to improve your hand’s value. You can hit as many times as you like, but if your total exceeds 21, you bust and lose the round.
– Stand: If you are satisfied with your hand’s value, choose to stand and let the dealer proceed.
– Double Down: Double your initial bet and receive one additional card before standing.
– Split: If you are dealt two cards of the same value, you can split them into two separate hands by matching your initial bet. You then continue playing each hand separately.

4. Dealer’s Turn: After all players have made their moves, it’s the dealer’s turn to play. The dealer must follow a set of rules, usually hitting until they reach a hand total of 17 or more.

5. Compare Hands: Once the dealer stands, the value of each hand is compared. If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand, you win. If the dealer’s hand exceeds 21, all remaining players win.

Remember, Blackjack is a strategic game with specific Blackjack Game Rules, and understanding basic strategy and card counting techniques can greatly improve your chances of winning. But always keep in mind that it’s a game of both skill and luck, and never gamble more than you can afford to lose.
