Atlantic City Blackjack offers the same excitement as the popular casino classic blackjack, with an exciting twist! 


    Atlantic City Blackjack - How To Play

    This online casino game follows the same principles as classic blackjack games, meaning the aim is to achieve a hand closer to 21 than the dealer.


    How to Play

    Start by placing your bet.

    Do this by selecting your chip size and placing it in the box at the bottom of the casino table.

    You and the dealer will then be dealt two cards each.

    For a chance of winning, you need to hold a hand with a total value closer to 21 than the dealer.

    The best hand possible is blackjack, which is awarded when your initial two cards consist of an Ace, plus a 10 or a picture card.

    Once your first two cards have been dealt, if you do not have blackjack, you will have several options to try to improve your hand:

    • Stand - if you're happy with your hand, this lets the dealer know you do not want to receive any more cards
    • Hit - the dealer will deal you another card, which will be added to your hand
    • Double Down - should your original two cards equal nine, 10 or 11, you will be have the chance to double down on your next card. You will place another wager equal to your initial one and receive one final card thereafter
    • Split - if you receive two cards of the same value, you have the option to split your hand into two separate hands. When splitting, you must place a second wager equal to your original wager to cover the second hand

    If your hand exceeds 21, you will 'Bust' and your bet will be lost.


    Outcome

    As soon as all players have had their turn, the dealer reveal their face-down card:

    • If their hand equals 16 or less, they must Hit
    • If their hand equals a soft 17 or higher, the dealer must Stand

    Your hand will then be compared with the dealer's to reveal the winner:

    • If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer's or they 'Bust',  you will win
    • If your hand and the dealer's hands are of equal value, you will draw and your bet will be returned
    • You lose if the total of your hand goes over 21

    It is only possible to win Blackjack from your first two cards.

    Should you achieve 21 from a split pair, it will not count as blackjack, meaning blackjack beats any hand of 21 resulting from a Split pair.


    Card Values 

    In Atlantic City Blackjack, cards are worth the following:

    • An Ace can have a value of one or 11 in this game - it will adopt whichever value is of most benefit to your hand
    • Cards two to 10 are all taken at face value
    • All face cards are valued at 10


    Insurance Bet

    If the dealer's first card is an Ace, you can place an Insurance bet to try to protect your original hand. 

    Should the dealer draw Blackjack, your insurance bet will pay out at 2-1. 

    If the dealer does not have Blackjack, your insurance bet will be lost and your hand will continue as normal.
