Blackjack is perhaps the most popular casino table game out there. Your object is to beat the dealer’s hand by playing it right and getting the total of your cards as close to 21 as possible without going over that total. If you go over you have busted and you lose what you have bet. RTG’s version of Blackjack here in front of you is solid, good graphics and lay out, what would make the casino experience compete would be some background music without the simple sound effects that follow the end of each hand.
This is another table game that you play against the dealer. You are both dealt initially two cards. You will be able to see one of the dealer’s cards as it is dealt face up. Once you know what cards you hold you can choose to Hit, Stand or Double. When you Hit you are dealt an extra card and you can Hit as long as you do not go over the total of 21. Cards from 2 to 9 are counted as their face value, 10s to Kings are counted as 10 and Aces can either be 1 or 11.
If the total of the cards that have initially been dealt to you are close to 21 you have the option to Stand or Double your ante, as there is a pretty good chance the total could be better than the dealer’s. If the initial two cards are an Ace card and a ten value card, you have a Blackjack and you win automatically. Unless, the dealer has also been dealt a Blackjack in which case there is a tie, otherwise know in Blackjack as a Push. When there is a tie you get your ante bet back.
Dealer’s cards are always added up second which gives the house it advantage. Basically, if you bust you lose your bet even if the dealer bust after that as well. To treat the players, there is a rule that the dealer must Stand on 17 and must Hit if the total is less than that.
