When you play live blackjack, you play at the same time as other players, but only play against the "house" through the live dealer. This why live dealer blackjack at online casinos makes the game so much more exciting.
Instead of getting cards in the table digitally from the video blackjack board game, the dealer hands out real cards and puts them in the table for you. You get potential bets on the screen and choose what you want to bet. Another thing that makes live blackjack so fun is the social aspect. After all, you won't experience any small talk if you play a regular table game in the casino section.
This is what makes live blackjack games so attractive for online players. It gives you social interaction, while providing good gambling entertainment and the chance to win real money. On the embedded chat you can write to the others, who all play against the same dealer as you, after all, they get the same hand to play against as you.
If you do not want to talk to the other players or the dealer you can simply minimize the chat window. The live dealer will have his own screen set up besides the camera, so he can see and respond to the chat verbally.
You: The dealer was bust! I was sure he would get 21!
Another Player: Yeah, we both stayed on 17 and won, great!
Live Dealer: Well played guys.
That is how the games look for you on screen. An actual person stands, or sits behind a Blackjack table, dealing physical cards from a real deck. Almost like playing at a real land-based casino. If you crank this up on your Sound system on a big screen Tv, you cannot avoid getting a great casino atmosphere when playing.
Now let's have a look at how the game is played. How can you win against the Live Dealer when playing blackjack online?
Fortunately, blackjack is a very easy game to learn how to play. You don't have to be a math genius or think very hard to figure out how to play this game.
When playing blackjack, the hardest thing is choosing whether to take a new card or not.
You start the round with 2 cards and your goal is to beat the dealer. There are 3 ways you can do this:
You get blackjack on your first 2 card, the sum your two cards must be 21. Face cards, Jack, Queen, and King are all worth ten. The ace worth 11, so any face card combined with an Ace does the trick. If you get that, without the dealer getting Blackjack on their first 2 cards, you win.
The second way to beat the live dealer at blackjack is when the value of your cards is higher than the dealer cards, without the sum of your cards exceeding 21.
The third and final way to win is to hope that the dealer goes Bust, this happens when his cards gain a total value over 21.
It’s not more difficult than that. It's a lot about flaks, you can’t always predict who gets what cards dealt to them.
Many claim that they can count the cards, and always know what to do. But those who enter the casino world will soon learn that it is not legal to do so, and if you are caught counting cards, you will not just lose the winnings and all of the bets you have set. You also run the risk of being thrown out of the casino and banned for life.
It is not worth doing, and we strongly recommend that you do not use this method to try to win bigger and more winnings from the casino.
Playing live blackjack is fun and easy. Just make sure you don’t go over 21, and you have a chance to win.
