How To Play Online Blackjack-Step 4

Step 4: Know Your Online Blackjack Table

In land based casinos, Blackjack is played around a specially designed table that can accommodate up to 7 players and one dealer. The online Blackjack table is a replica of this and has 5 to 7 playing areas on the semi-circle green board.

The dealer is situated opposite the player. The most important thing players should note on the online Blackjack table, is the writing in the centre of the table. The writing indicates the minimum and maximum bet allowed on the table as well as the payout ratio. This writing normally reads: “Blackjack pays 3 to 2, Dealer must draw to 16 and stand on all 17s”.

On the table, the player has a designated playing area for their cards and a space for their bets. The advantage of online Blackjack is that a player can make multiple bets. For example, a player can make a $5 and a $1 bet. The dealer will hand the player two cards for the $5 bet and another set of two cards for the $1 bet, allowing the player two chances at winning. To play Blackjack, players need chips to bet with.

The standard chip values are usually as follows:

  • White chips are worth $1
  • Red chips are worth $5
  • Green chips are worth $25
  • Black chips are worth $100

These values however, differ depending on the online casino and the bet amounts offered on the online Blackjack game. At the beginning of the game, the player receives two cards on each bet made. The dealer also receives two cards; however, the one card will be face down and the other face up.
