Rules and Objectives of Blackjack Live
When you play Live Blackjack at Mr Green Casino, your main objective is to create a hand that has a higher value than the dealer’s hand, but without going bust or exceeding 21. The best hand is called ‘Blackjack,’ which is a card combination that has a value of 21.
Live Blackjack is a relaxing game in one way as you play only against the dealer and do not have to compete against the other players. Another advantage of playing Live Blackjack is that it has a low house edge, which you can lower even further by using the proper strategy.
Live Blackjack can come across as being a bit complicated at first, but the rules are not very complicated. We give you a short explanation of how to play Live Blackjack.
A table of Blackjack Live can accommodate seven players. Take all the numbered cards at face value. Two key points that you need to keep in mind when playing Live Blackjack is that the ace is either 1 or 11 depending on the game situation and picture cards have a value of 10.
Live Blackjack is played with eight standard decks of playing cards where the dealer always stands on 17. You can double down on your first two cards, but not after splitting. However, you can split your first two cards if they have equal value, and you can split only once per hand.
If you split a pair of aces, you will receive only one card per ace. If the dealer gets an ace, you can purchase insurance. The game is tied if your hand and the dealer’s hand have the same value.
