European Blackjack

Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games in the world, but you probably haven’t played European Blackjack. The major difference is that the Dealer only deals one card to themselves at first – and after you play your round of play, the second card is dealt to the dealer.

How to Play European Blackjack

European Blackjack is played the same as traditional Blackjack, just try to build a hand that totals 21, or get more points that the Dealer has in their hand, without going over 21.

Player’s Turn

Click on your chips to place a bet, and then click Deal. Your two cards are dealt face up and one Dealer card is dealt face up. Click on the Stand button if you think you can beat the dealer with your first two cards, or if you need to add more points to your hand, click Hit and you are issued another card. You may choose to Hit multiple times, but for this table game, if you go beyond 21, you lose automatically.


Doubling down means that you are doubling your bet and getting only one more card. In European Blackjack, you can only double down on hard 9′s, 10′ and 11′s.


When you are dealt two cards of the same value, you can split them into two hands and try your luck with each as the first card of two separate hands. When you select the Split option, the game automatically doubles your bet. The rules of the game require you to hit at least once on both hands. However if you split on two aces, you can only hit once on each hand.

Dealer’s Turn

After you play your cards, the Dealer is dealt their second card. The dealer will then opt to hit or stand based on a series of official rules that the Dealer must follow.

When the Dealer’s hand total matches yours, it is a tie, also called a Push and your bet is returned.

You Win When

  • You get a Blackjack.
  • Your hand is closer to (but does not exceed) 21 points than the Dealer’s hand.
  • If the Dealer busts and you do not.
