5 Beginner Blackjack Questions Answered

Even the most inexperienced casino beginner knows that blackjack is a game with the best odds. But what if you don’t have a clue on how to play or you understand the basic but not sure about other things?

If that is you, you’ll need the answers to these beginner blackjack questions:

1.      How Do You Play Casino Blackjack?

To play a blackjack game at a land-based casino, you must find an open seat at a blackjack table. Look for a placard on the table. This sign will show what the minimum and maximum wagers are.

2.      What Happens When You Get a 21?

One thing that we didn’t cover in the section about how to play is how the game dealer handles a blackjack – it’s not only the name of the game, it’s also the name of a 2-card hand totaling 21. Such a hand consists of any card worth 10 and an ace, counting as 11.

3.      How Do Side Bets Work in Blackjack?

Side bets work well for the casino, however, they are usually lousy propositions for the player.

The most prominent instance of a side bet in a blackjack game is the insurance bet, available in all casino blackjack games.

4.      What Is a Push in Blackjack?

Push is another word for a tie. In a push state, you get your wager back, but you don’t get any winnings. You also don’t lose any cash, though – it’s like the hand never took place.

5.       Can You Use Your Mobile Device at the Blackjack Table?

The rules vary depending on the casino. In most casinos, it’s not permitted at all to use your phone on the blackjack table.

Even in casinos where its allowed, it’s considered poor casino gaming etiquette at best and very rude at its worst.
