Blackjack Rules

Android Blackjack holds the same rules as regular Blackjack, the only different being that you will be playing against the computer and not against other live players, and there will be no live dealer. The aim of the game is to get a score higher than the dealers, or in this case the computers, without going over 21. The game will start with the player placing their bet. This will either be done with real money or with fun money depending and which app or casino the player has chosen. Once the bet is placed, the player then clicks on the deal button.

The computer will deal the player two cards, both face up, and themselves two cards, one face up and one face down. The card values in Android Blackjack are simple. 2 to 10 hold the face value of the card. Face cards, i.e. Jack, Queen and King are worth ten, and Ace is worth either one or eleven, depending on what suits the player best at the time. As a player you now have your two cards in front of you and can see one of the dealer’s cards. If you have a low score, for example a 2 and a 5, you can ask the dealer to Hit you, this means to deal you another card. You can continue to do this until you either Stand, which means you are happy with the score in front of you, or you Bust, which means your hand exceeds the total of 21.

If you Bust, the dealer wins. Once a player has decided to stand, the dealer reveals his second card. The dealer then has to keep drawing cards until he reaches a score of 17 or more. Should he Bust, you win. Should he end up with a score under 21 but higher than yours, he wins.
