How to Play Blackjack in an Online Casino

The rules in the blackjack game in an online casino are of course, the same as in a real casino and the main objective of the game is to beat the dealer. The rules are pretty simple, actually and I can only think of one thing that is considered hard in this game: to win.

In order to play blackjack online, one must first register in an online casino. Each casino offers sign up bonuses. The larger the casino bonus is, the more tempted customers will be to join. Casinos offer different varieties of the game. But this is commonly played:

In order to beat the dealer, your cards must have a total greater than the dealer’s cards with the total not exceeding 21. When the player exceeds 21, he busts and automatically loses the game. If you bust and the dealer busts, you still lose.

When the player has a total of 21 with the first two cards, he has a blackjack and automatically wins provided the dealer does not also have cards totaling to 21. If the dealer also has a blackjack, then it is a push, meaning the game is a draw. If only the dealer has a blackjack, all the players lose.

The ace card is valued as either one or eleven; whichever puts the player in advantage. The face cards are counted as 10 and the other cards are represented by their numbers.

The players must first place their bets before moving on with the game. After that, each player receives two cards up while the dealer has one card up and the other down. The players then use decisions based on their cards and the dealer’s up card.

If the player wishes to draw another card, he will take a hit. On the other hand, if he is satisfied with his cards, he will stand. If the player receives a double card, he will have an option to split his cards. In splitting, you will have to place another bet on your other card which is equal to your first bet. The dealer takes his turn last and is only allowed to draw until it reaches 17 and up.

Many who play casino games are fond of playing blackjack for the simplicity of the rules and for its fast-paced nature. But this game is not for those who rely only on hunches as this requires strategies to win.

How to Play Dreidel

The Dreidel is a four-sided spinning top that Jewish people play with during the eight-day winter holiday of Chanukah. Each side of the Dreidel shows a letter of the Hebrew alphabet- Nun, Gimmel, Hay and Shin; together the letters form the acronym “Nes Gadol Hayah Sham” meaning “A great miracle happened there”. The letters also form a mnemonic for the rules of the game.

All players sit around a flat surface and the games pieces (chocolates, coins, raisins etc) are divided evenly between all the players. Everyone takes a turn to spin the Dreidel and the one with the “highest” letter begins (Nun is considered the highest, then Gimmel, then Hey, then Shin). Everyone puts on game piece into the centre of the playing area. The one who goes first spins and play continues in a clockwise direction.

If the Dreidel lands on Nun absolutely nothing happens. Yes, really! Nun stands for the Yiddish word “nul” which means zero.

If the Dreidel lands on Gimmel you take whatever game pieces are in the centre of the paying area- all of them. Gimmel stands for “gantz”, the Yiddish word meaning whole. After such a move, everyone puts one game piece into the middle of the playing area and play continues.

If the Dreidel lands on Hay, you take half of whatever is in the centre of the playing area. Hay stands for “halb” meaning half.

If the Dreidel lands on Shin you have to put a game piece into the centre of the playing area. Shin stands for “shenk” meaning give.
