What is Live Blackjack?
Live Blackjack is one of the most popular online games and it is no coincidence that most players love it. Blackjack has as its main feature the skill that each player needs to have and is not a game of chance as many believe.
How to play Live Blackjack?
Blackjack has many variations, but the main goal, as well as the rules that shape the game do not change. The object of the game is for the player to complete 21 with the cards dealt to him by the dealer. Otherwise, the player loses, as he must not exceed the specified number, while he must not lose to the dealer. The rules of the game are not difficult and anyone can learn how to play, even if they are beginners.
The value of the cards is also very easy as all the cards that represent a number have that value. Also, the figures are worth ten, while Ace has a double value, one and eleven.
In practice, the game starts when the dealer deals two cards, and depending on the variant of blackjack, the cards are either closed or open. The player then bets, opens his cards and chooses the strategy to follow. In case the dealer has 21 then the player loses, while in case both have 21 then the money is returned to the player and the game continues. It is of course worth noting that the croupiers conduct the game according to certain rules that are non-negotiable. For example, they cannot advise the player on the amount of the bet or where to bet, however, what they can do and is often very useful, is to help the player become familiar with the rules of the game.
Live Blackjack Strategies
Each player has the opportunity to choose from strategies in order to make the game even better. It is necessary for players to formulate their own tactics in the game and of course to try several strategies to decide which one suits them the best and which one they believe that it will bring them a higher profit.
Surrender: It is when the player chooses not to bet at all when the dealer’s hand is better than his own. This can happen if the player’s first 2 cards have a total of 13-14-15-16 and he sees that the dealer has an Ace or 10.
Double Down: This strategy is used more by more experienced and daring players. In this case the player chooses to double the bet. That is, if he has 10 or 11 as a total of the first 2 cards and the dealer has 3 or 4 as the face up, then he can follow the “double down” strategy and double his bet.
Splitting: It is considered by many to be the most successful blackjack strategy. However, it can be used in a single case during the game. Essentially, only when two identical cards are dealt to the player.
Insurance: This is a pretty good and smart strategy, in case the player does not have a good hand compared to the dealer facing him. In this case, the player has the option to use this strategy and ask the dealer to return all or half of the entire bet back.
