Premium Online Blackjack Action 24/7
Slots are all about luck, but online Blackjack sits on the other end of the spectrum. It is a card game that, without question, benefits enormously from skill. There is still an element of luck involved, but those that really put in the time, learn the strategies, and understand the maths, have a significantly better chance of winning when playing Blackjack online.
We acknowledge that you have arrived at the online Blackjack page, and as such assume that you are ready to tackle the challenge. We respect this and are proud that you decided on Black Lotus Casino as your gambling site of choice. We wish you luck and appreciate that you have what it takes to tackle a game of skill so confidently.
Though, we also acknowledge that online Blackjack can also be approached as a cowboy. Which is to say; playing based on courage and luck alone is also possible, and we smile at bravado as well.
A Game Through History
Blackjack online games have a far-reaching history. The game is far older than many assume, with a history stretching back as far as the 1600s. It was originally referred to as 21, of course, but more or less followed the exact same rules. The simple premise was, and has always been, to get a hand with a total as close to 21 as possible.
These same rules applied as the card game arrived in France, quickly finding a firm fan base. Again, the rules stayed identical, even if the French preferred to call the game Vingt-Un, which still translates to 21 regardless. Eventually Blackjack would find its way to the United States, getting the name that we know today.
It turns out that cowboys loved a bit of cards, and as such Blackjack grew in popularity even further, eventually finding its way to all four corners of the world. Today, almost without question, every online casino will offer some or other form of this classic gambling activity. Black Lotus Casino is proud to offer a few variations. You can enjoy playing Blackjack online with us, and you’ll never run short on choice.
Understanding The Real Rules
We assume you know how to play online Blackjack, so let’s talk for a moment about the real rules. Beginners will tell you that the goal is to get a total as close to 21 as possible, but this isn’t the case at all. Getting a total close to 21 is beneficial, but it isn’t actually what the game is all about. The real goal is to get a hand closer to 21 than the dealer. Consider that if you stand on 12, and the dealer goes bust, you still walk away with money in your pocket.
Too many beginners playing Blackjack online bust themselves chasing an elusive total, failing to understand that most of the winning strategies are based around reading the dealer’s face up card. We mentioned earlier that online Blackjack is a game of skill, and we weren’t joking. Those that have studied strategy guides know that every move is a matter of statistics, probability, and a hint of luck.
We recommend you read those strategy guides and keep them handy. Though, we still respect the cowboys!
