You can play online blackjack in Australia for fun, or for real money, right here at Bitdreams. Here’s what you need to know.
Yes, you heard us right. Here at Bitdreams, Australian blackjack enthusiasts can enjoy over 70 of our standard blackjack game variations completely free. You can play for as long as you want using an endless pot of virtual currency.
Naturally, our real money users can wager real money on those games too, but in addition, you’ll have access to well over 300 live dealer blackjack games that are available to play 24/7.
Not surprisingly, blackjack is one of the most popular card games we feature here at Bitdreams. It’s a very easy game to get the hang of, but for the benefit of our new Bitdreamers, or for those of you who have never tried blackjack before, we’re going to run through the basics.
Below is a quick list of some useful facts relating to blackjack. These are pretty much carved in stone, regardless of the Bitdreams blackjack variation that you choose to try out.
Before you play your first game of blackjack here at Bitdreams, you need to understand how the scoring system works and the points value assigned to each card.
As you will see further on in our Bitdreams blackjack guide, the flexibility of an Ace card is a crucial factor to consider when you are dealt one.
The aims of every blackjack game you play at Bitdreams are the same – you need to get as close to 21 points as possible and to beat the dealer’s score.
Here are the three ways those things can happen:
When playing blackjack at Bitdreams you are just as likely to lose a hand as you are to win it. But there are actually only two ways that you can lose to the dealer.
Later in our Bitdreams guide, we’ll explore more about strategies to help you avoid those two scenarios.
While it is unusual for this to happen, it is a possibility and a blackjack game has an 8.48% chance of ending this way. Basically, a tie occurs when your score matches the dealer’s and you’ll see we describe this as a ‘push’ here at Bitdreams. If your game results in a push, your initial stake will be returned to you.
The order of play for each blackjack hand is always the same and there are five stages for each round.
Although it is all fairly straightforward, we’ll explain more about your options at each stage over the next few sections of this Bitdreams guide.
When you play blackjack games at Bitdreams, bets are placed before the game commences. This part takes a little longer for live blackjack games, where there are multiple players involved in the action.
Below the potential outcomes for any game:
Each Bitdreams blackjack game has individual minimum and maximum bet limits assigned, so you’ll always find options to suit your style and budget.
When all bets have been placed, each player receives two cards, which are dealt face up. For multiplayer games, the cards are dealt out in a clockwise direction (left to right from the dealer’s viewpoint).
Once that is done, the dealer’s will deal their own cards, one being dealt face down and the other, face up. This part is very straightforward, but next we move on to where you will have some decisions to make.
To play your hand, you first look at the value of the two cards in front of you. If they add up to 21, you have a ‘blackjack’ and you don’t need to do anything.
If your cards total less than 21, you can choose to ‘stick’ (stay as you are) or ‘hit’ (have another card dealt). If you opt to hit, bear in mind that if you go over 21 you will go bust.
When your Bitdreams dealer plays their own hand, there are certain rules they must follow:
Don’t worry if you are confused here, we’ll explain these concepts in more depth a little later.
Once your Bitdreams has finished playing their hand, there are four potential outcomes:
Although Bitdreams blackjack dealers cannot use these playing options during a hand, our players can.
Here at our Bitdreams online casino in Australia there are many different types of blackjack for you to play. Here is a quick look at just a few of the variations we have on offer:
We can’t explore every option in this guide, but we’ll cover some of the most popular blackjack games in the next few sections.
The Super 7 Blackjack game is completely unique to Bitdreams. It’s an intriguing multideck derivative of blackjack where you can play up to three hands simultaneously in each round and there are also a number of different betting options to explore. Although this is a game that is favoured by our more experienced players, you can always give it a try in ‘Play for Fun’ mode until you get the hang of things.
This blackjack game was created by renowned software developer Betsoft and it’s another variation that is very popular with our Bitdreams players. Although this game has a lot in common with standard blackjack games, it does have one very unique feature. If you don’t like the look of one of your cards, you have the option to ‘burn’ it in exchange for another. However, this will cost you half of your wager.
The jewel in the Bitdreams crown is undeniably our live blackjack collection. The action all takes place via an HD stream and it’s the closest thing you’ll find to walking through the doors of a land-based casino. There are other players in the game alongside you, and the cards are dealt by a live dealer. Here at Bitdreams, we have 325 versions of live blackjack for you to play, including VIP tables with increased limits.
