Blackjack or 21 is one of the most popular card games in a casino, and one of the most sought after in online casinos. This card game whose aim is to add 21 to the value of the cards without going over, can be a good entertainment thanks to this free, no-download, no registration demo version.
It is an ancient game whose rules have lasted until today, adapted to be more entertaining and exciting. It probably has its origins, although we relate it much more to the big European or North American casinos.
It is a game in which you play against the dealer in order to get the best possible hand. The rules are slightly different for the dealer and the player. The dealer will have won if he has a better hand or you go over 21, will tie with you if he has the same number of points and will lose if your hand is superior or if he risks too much and goes over.
In this game it is important to know the value of the cards. It’s simple to remember: cards from 2 to 10 have their numerical value, and the face cards are slightly different: the J, Q and K are always worth 10 points and the ace will have a value of your choice, depending on what suits you, of either 1 or 11.
It is usually played with several decks of cards at the same time and it is the dealer on behalf of the banker who organises and deals the cards. In this demo version the system will be your dealer and the banker, and you can beat, lose or draw against him. The different varieties have certain differences between them, the result of the development of the game in different geographical areas or simply are versions with differences designed expressly for online play.
Thus, Blackjack Surrender or Pontoon are also games inspired by the basic rules that we mentioned, but with a touch that makes them different from each other and that manage to introduce some novelty that brings an extra to the player.
In almost all the demo versions that we offer you here, besides playing for free, without downloading and without registering; you will be able to take your time and check the game rules and how the different elements and commands of the game work.
In the multi-hand versions you will see that the table, in the shape of a crescent or fan, offers you the possibility of placing several bets and playing with several hands. You always start with the bets, which you can determine with the corresponding “buttons”. Usually you will find several chips of different values on the screen, which you simply click on and place.
After the betting, two cards are dealt to each hand, all of them face up. They are dealt one at a time and if the dealer’s first card is an ace in some games it allows the player to secure the game, as the chances of the dealer winning are greater. From there on players have several options: split, stand, double the bet, etc. and the last turn is the dealer’s turn.
