BLACKJACK GAMES

Online Blackjack Overview

Blackjack is one of the most iconic casino games in history. It is a game which is often associated with the dusty saloons of the wild west or the lavish fast-living on the Las Vegas casino floors. Different cultures have alternative names for this game, including pontoon and twenty-one, which refers to the numerical values that players are aiming to not exceed in the game. In this article, we will explain the history of Blackjack and it’s cultural significance since its invention in the 17th century. We will also guide you through some of the rules of blackjack, and tips and tricks to succeeding in the game on our online casino!

Here at Cozino we try to help out our players as much as we can – so we have set guides for most of our games (online slots, mobile slots, card games, poker, live roulette, roulette games and jackpot games) and even tips to pick the best online casino and ways to find the best casino bonuses!

The Rules of Blackjack

In Blackjack, the game begins with the dealer dealing two cards to the player and also two for themself. One card facing up, and the other down; here, is a full blackjack guide for beginners and other tips related to card counting (just in case you want to dive deeper into the game)!

The total of a hand is the sum of the values of the cards. All cards count their face value, picture cards are the value of 10, and an ace can count as 1 or 11. Card suits have no meaning in Blackjack.

Players will decide whether to ‘stand’ - keep the cards they currently have, ‘hit’ - receive another card, ‘double down’ - decide to double your initial bet in return for a single card, or split - if the player receives two of the same card value, they can then choose to split their hand into two new hands. However, players and the dealer must remember not to bust - exceed a total of 21. The dealer then plays last, he is required to hit on 16 or less and stand on 17 through to 21. The dealer is, therefore, less of a player and more like playing against a robotic opponent who plays purely based on simple algorithms.

Players win when their hand totals higher than the dealer’s hand, or they have 21 or less when the dealer busts.

Players will usually place bets using chips. In casinos these chips usually follow this code:

  • Red chips are worth $5 and are commonly referred to as ‘Nickels’.
  • Next, are green chips which are worth $25, casinos refer to these chips as ‘Quarters’
  • In terms of higher valued chips, black chips are worth $100 and are simply referred to as ‘Blacks’.
  • The next highest value chips are purple chips, worth an amazing $500. They are referred to by casinos as ‘Barneys’, after the popular kids’ dinosaur character.
  • Lastly, Orange chips are worth $1000. And, because of their colouration, are called ‘Pumpkins’.

Of course, there are more valuable chips casinos can use, however, these are the most common. For more about how to play blackjack check out our blog!

History of Blackjack

Historical evidence suggests that Blackjack was originally a card game invented by the Spanish during the 17th century. It was first mentioned in an early-modern Spanish text, written by Miguel de Cervantes - who is most famous for writing the book Don Quixote - titled Roncenete y Cortadilla, in which he refers to gamblers cheating in Seville. He names the game which these fraudsters were participating in ‘Veintiuna’, which is Spanish for twenty-one. Similarly, under a century later, a French version of the game began to gain popularity, called ‘Vingt-et-un’, which is French for twenty-one. This appeared in French casinos during the early 18th century.

The game was brought over to America by French colonists during the early 1900s, during the American frontier, which is likely to be why the game is so closely associated with the cowboy lifestyle of the wild west!

Since then, Blackjack has become an integral part of American culture. This iconic game features in many popular films, including Rainman, 21, Swingers and The Last Casino. The influence of Blackjack has crossover into the popular culture more than the majority of casino games, with arguably only poker being a more influential casino game.
