Effective Beginners Guide for Playing Blackjack Online

Sports have been off the physical world lately, but they can be found easily in the virtual world. This guide is beginner friendly and will monitor you throughout your journey in virtual sports betting events.

Starting out:

If you’re new to play blackjack online, start slow and steady. Start with betting on low stakes if you are not sure about how blackjack works, its rules, and regulations, etc. rules are the same as physical in virtual. The core of learning to play blackjack lies in understanding rules and laying strategically. As of course, as they say, practice makes the man perfect.


There are certain things that a beginner must keep in mind:

  1. An ace (A) can be used as 1 or 11.
  2. All face cards – (J), (Q), (K) have a value of 10.
  3. Beating the dealer is the main criterion of blackjack.

Unlike poker, players don’t have to beat other players in blackjack. You should be closer to 21 than the dealer. There is certain terminology such as:

  1. Bust: when your cards total up to 22 or higher.
  2. Push: when your cards total is the same as that of dealers.

One should be aware of these terminologies as people use these terms often. If you play wisely, you can get an opportunity to snatch profit and go ahead play in a long term course.


A situation wherein the dealer shows an ace in turn of 10 hidden cards is called ‘Insurance’. Assumption while playing should always be that the dealer is hiding a 10 in their hole card. It’s a 2 for 1 system wherein an extra bet is played on whether the dealer will hit blackjack or not. Even if you lose your hand, you can recover it by insurance wager. The only time insurance strategy is useful is when you hit blackjack, and the money offered by insurance bet will pass only the dealer shows an ace and also flips over a face or a 10 to also get blackjack.

Another way to earn more in a fun game like blackjack is by doubling you bet after a hand has started. For example, you have a total of 11 cards while the dealer shows 6. Hence, there are 16 cards holding a value of 10. So you double your bet or ‘double down’. The deal here is that the deal can take as many as he or she wants while you, the player is restricted to taking only one. The option is only discouraged when the dealer is holding a 10. We always recommend you to double wager when there is a high bust potential for the dealer.

Playing sensibly:

Since you’re playing online there are not many chances of consuming alcohol while playing blackjack. So I might not even need to mention this, but one should play while keeping an open mind.
