Blackjack

Blackjack Blackjack is an easy card game to understand. Your challenge is to beat the dealer at each hand. The aim is to achieve a hand of cards that totals 21. If you do this, you are said to have blackjack.

However, you do not need to hit the magic 21 to win the hand. All you need to do is to get a total that is closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand… without going over. If your total is 22 or more, you go bust. Similarly, if the dealer’s total is over 21, they go bust.

Live online casinos may have several players at the same table. However, their progress is independent of yours. Your only aim is to beat the dealer’s hand to win a prize. It doesn’t matter what other participants do.

Once you have made a bet, the dealing begins. Each player receives a face-up card, while the dealer receives a face-down card. The process then continues with one more card dealt to each player. This time, the dealer gets a face-up card.

All numbered cards count as those numbers, while the ace can be a one or 11. Picture cards are worth 10 each. You must decide whether to ask for another card (at the risk of going bust), or sticking with what you have.

Backgammon

Backgammon Backgammon is better known as a board game than a game you’d see at an online casino. However, selected casinos do offer players the chance to try it.

This game differs from many other casino games in that strategy plays an important part. Many other casino games are based on good fortune. A skilled backgammon player stands a chance of beating the casino more often than a novice.

There are two versions of online backgammon. You can play against the casino or against another player if a live version is offered. Not all casinos offer both options.

The idea is to get your game pieces – called checkers – into your home board area. This is done by rolling two dice and making your chosen moves, with the two players alternating dice rolls. You’ll play with either black or white pieces.

Once you have your checkers in the home area, you can roll the dice again to start bearing the checkers off the board. The first player to bear off all their pieces wins the game. When playing online, you would usually place a bet on the outcome of the game. Whoever wins will receive the pot, i.e. the bets taken from both players.
