What is Live Blackjack Online?

Blackjack is played in casinos throughout the world, so what is live blackjack online? Well, it’s a game of blackjack where none of the players are physically present, but where there is a real live table and dealer. One benefit is that it saves you having to travel to join in.
Using clever software and camera technology, a live online blackjack game captures all the atmosphere of a real casino. You'll often be able to chat to the dealer. All you need is a good internet connection and a device such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC. Oh, and don’t forget, some skill and luck.

How to play Blackjack

The object of the game in blackjack is to score 21 or as close as possible to it without going over and “busting”. Players never play against each other, but instead play against the dealer. The dealer begins the game by dealing two cards to all players.
All the cards dealt by the dealer are face up, but one of his/her own two cards is face down. In clockwise order, players will then play their hands according to the card the dealer is showing. They will elect to draw further cards (hit) or not (stand) based on probability.

Basic Rules of Blackjack

Once all players have played their hands, the dealer flips over his downturned card and plays his/her hand. Once the value of the cards reaches 17 or more, the dealer must stand, so any player with a better hand at that point wins. A two-card hand of 21 is a natural blackjack hand.
There are other options open to blackjack players: doubling down and splitting. The former allows players to double their bet based on the turn of just one more card. This is common with a hand of 10 or 11. Players can also split a pair and play two hands, thus doubling their original bet.

Basic Blackjack Strategy

Although blackjack relies heavily on luck, of course it’s also a game of numbers and probability. There are certain strategies that seasoned players will use. For instance, a pair of aces or 8s will often be split. The first offers a chance of two blackjack hands and the second is deemed undesirable.
When doubling down on hands, players usually bet on a winning single card with a value of 10 or 11. If the dealer's card is high value, players tend to draw more cards to gain a better score. When the dealer’s card is low value, they’ll stand with a lesser score and hope that the dealer busts.

Playing Blackjack in India

Playing blackjack in a physical casino is possible in India, but you might have to travel to do it. There are three states that permit casinos: Daman, Goa and Sikkim. At the last count, there were eighteen casinos in Goa, five in Sikkim and one in Daman.
Since gambling laws differ from state to state, the legality of online gambling varies in India. There is no explicit law in most states (except Maharashtra) that makes it illegal. Several international online casinos welcome Indian players and accept rupees as currency. It's therefore possible to play blackjack online throughout much of India.
