Blackjack is played by players against the casino/dealer rather than between players themselves. The aim of the game is to reach a total of 21 or closest before the dealer without going over. Players can also win a round if a dealer's total goes over 21 from additional cards drawn.
The game may be won in the first draw of two cards (a natural) or through drawing additional cards. A natural is achieved when either the dealer or player hand turns out to be a ten and an ace. If such occurs, the game ends at that point.
If neither hand has a winning total when the first two cards are revealed, the game continues, with each side of play either looking to reach 21 or force the opponent to draw higher than 21. Players may stand or draw additional cards to better their hand.
Playing Blackjack online is no different from playing in an ordinary casino. Players just need to log into an online casino and pick the blackjack option from the menu. The game lies in the category of table games. It is one of the games that are incorporated into the recent innovation of live dealer casinos.
