Blackjack basics

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.

Blackjack facts

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.

  • Cards have values ranging from one to 11
  • The goal is to get 21 points, or as close as you can
  • In order to win you only need to beat the dealer, not the other players
  • The odds and probabilities for blackjack are pre-defined

Blackjack card values

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.

  • Numbered cards (2-10): Scored at face value
  • Face cards (Jack, Queen, King): All picture cards are valued at 10
  • Ace: 1 or 11 – used as whichever value best suits your hand

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.

Winning blackjack hands

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:

  1. Your score is higher than the dealer’s and under 21
  2. You hit 21 with your first two cards and the dealer doesn’t
  3. The dealer goes ‘bust’ by scoring more than 21

Losing at blackjack

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.

  1. You go ‘bust’ your hand by scoring more than 21 points
  2. The dealer’s final score is under 21, but is still higher than yours

Later in our Bitdreams guide, we’ll explore more about strategies to help you avoid those two scenarios.

Can you tie in a game of blackjack?

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 blackjack play at Bitdreams

The order of play for each blackjack hand is always the same and there are five stages for each round.

  1. You place your bet
  2. The cards are dealt
  3. You play your hand
  4. The dealer plays their hand
  5. Winning bets are paid out

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.

Place your blackjack bet

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:

    • Player wins – 42.22%
    • Dealer wins – 49.1%
    • Tie/push – 8.48%

Each Bitdreams blackjack game has individual minimum and maximum bet limits assigned, so you’ll always find options to suit your style and budget.

The cards are dealt

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.

Playing your hand

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.


How the dealer plays their hand

When your Bitdreams dealer plays their own hand, there are certain rules they must follow:

  • If the dealer’s score is 16 or lower, they must take another card
  • If the dealer’s score is 17 or greater, then they must stick
  • The dealer cannot double, split or surrender*

Don’t worry if you are confused here, we’ll explain these concepts in more depth a little later.

Winning bets are paid out

Once your Bitdreams has finished playing their hand, there are four potential outcomes:

  1. Your dealer goes bust and you’ll win even money (1x your original bet)
  2. Your score is higher than the dealer’s and you get even money
  3. The hand results in a tie with the dealer (push) and your stake is returned
  4. Your score is lower than the dealer’s and you lose your bet

Bitdreams blackjack playing options

Although Bitdreams blackjack dealers cannot use these playing options during a hand, our players can.

  1. Double down – You can double your bet and receive one extra card only.
  2. Split – If you have two cards of the same value, you can ‘split’ them into two hands and place an extra bet.
  3. Surrender – If you don’t think you’ll win, you can ‘surrender’ (quit the round) and get half your stake back.

Super 7

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.

21 Burn

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 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.
