As one of the most popular card games around the world, GemSlots has given Blackjack the respect it deserves. We have designed our Blackjack tables to be available across multiple devices, still providing the top-notch quality you’ve come to expect from us. This game is perfect for any new-comer or experienced veteran because there are so few ways to lose (which we’ll talk about just now). There are many exciting varieties of the game all based on the same principle – get as close to 21 as you can with your hand of cards without going bust.
Blackjack has its origins in Europe, with the Spanish and French introducing the game to the world. But the core basics have remained the same throughout the centuries, even with new versions trying to spice things up.
The goal is to get to 21 (called Blackjack). Every card represents their value with the royals being 10 points each and an ace can be 11 or 1, depending on your hand. In this table game, you play directly against the dealer and other players have no effect on whether you win or lose. The trick is to know when to hit (get another card), stand (stay on the score you are) or fold (give up the round). Generally, you’re in with a good chance if you stand at 17 or above. If your score takes you over 21, sorry for you, but you’ve lost. The same rules apply to the dealer except they must hit at 16 and stand at 17.
Our online Blackjack games mix things up with different pay-outs and rules to play by. Some are based on the number of Blackjacks you’re able to score and some change the standing limit on the dealer. Wherever you decide to hunt for treasure, be sure that it’s the right pick for you.
