Blackjack is a very popular card game all over the world and is also very popular on jackpots.ch. This card game has become a key feature of traditional casinos. Whether you’re a novice at the game or old hands, the rules of blackjack are simple and the chances of you beating the dealer are very good.
What types of online blackjack games are there?
When you play blackjack online, you often find different game types. The different game types can sometimes lead to some confusion, so we’ve put together a brief guide.
Play against a live dealer or computer blackjack
One of the main differences in the game types is whether you play against a computer online or against a real dealer in a live-casino. Many players prefer the online version of live blackjack due to the social aspect of the game. Playing blackjack against the computer is also known as “random number generator blackjack” or RNG blackjack for short, and has its advantages. For example, in RNG blackjack online, you play alone at a table and don’t have to keep up with the pace of the dealer or other players. This means you can take as much time as you like when making your decisions.
Play one or more hands in blackjack at the same time
Online blackjack against the computer also offers single-hand and multi-hand blackjack. Single-hand means that you can only play one hand at a time, i.e. your next hand won’t be played until the current round has ended. In multi-hand blackjack, you have the option of playing several independent hands at the same time. With live blackjack, there is usually no such difference and you have the option of playing several hands at a time.

Rules and strategies
The goal in blackjack is to beat the dealer by getting closer to 21 with the cards in your hand without exceeding 21. To do this, you can “buy” as many cards as you like after the two starting cards have been dealt. You can buy cards until you think you’re close enough to 21 and decide not to draw any more cards. But beware: if you exceed 21, you automatically lose the game. When deciding who wins, only your cards and the dealer’s are counted. You don’t have to worry about the other players at the table, as each player only plays against the dealer.

Creation of blackjack
The origins of blackjack as a casino game are not fully known. It’s believed that an early version of the game was very popular in the French courts in the 17th or 18th century. The game wasn’t called blackjack then, but vingt-et-un. In the 18th century, French immigrants took the game to America. The game then went on to evolve, with rules being added and changed until today’s version of online blackjack was eventually born. Since the game has been changed and developed by many influencing factors, you can still find different variants and table rules today.
