It’s probably the most famous card game in the world, and definitively one of the most popular among USA players. It’s been featured dozens and dozens of times in Hollywood movies. And it packs an adrenaline rush into every single deal. It’s everyone’s favorite game of 21, and gambling at the blackjack table is more realistic than ever at Palace of Chance.
Online blackjack at Palace of Chance works exactly like the real-world casino version of this classic casino card game that you might be used to. To win, just get as close to 21 without going over. If your hand is better than the dealer’s hand, you win.
First, you place your bet. You can choose to bet between $5 and $250 per hand. Once you’re satisfied with your bet, hit Deal. The dealer will deal you two cards face up, and he’ll deal himself one card face up and one card face down.
If your first two cards add up to 21, that’s called hitting blackjack, and you’ll automatically win. If the dealer has 21, he’ll win. If you don’t hit 21 (and assuming the dealer didn’t hit 21) you’ve got some decisions to make.
