Blackjack is one of the oldest casino games in existence and can be traced all the way back to the 1600 where it was played in Spain using the “baraja” deck, it is not known if Blackjack was invented by the Spanish, what we do know however is that it was played widely by the people of that time. Since then it has grown into one of the most widely played games, being beaten to the top of the list only barely by the Slot machines. This is largely due to the fact that it is simple to learn, easy to play and can make you a lot of money if played correctly. In an effort to get more people interested in this quite frankly brilliant game I have devised the ultimate free Blackjack guide for beginners to follow. Online Blackjack for the more serious online gambler. Skill, a strategic approach and some Luck is needed to play Blackjack.

As with all good free Blackjack guides I will begin by telling what the point of the game is, as it’s French “ving-et-un” and Spanish “ventiuna” names suggest (both mean 21) the aim of the game is to accumulate cards that equal the value of 21 or closest to it without going bust. Also included in any free blackjack guide is how the game is played, at first a dealer will deal 2 cards to each player and then himself, after counting the cards you may choose to “hit” and the dealer will give you another card, or you can “stick” meaning you are happy with your hand and another card is unnecessary. At this point the dealer will then count his cards repeat the procedure and a winner will be decided. Play all the different versions of Online Video Poker you can think of at the 5 Star Online Internet Casino.

A free blackjack guide aside as you can see this is undoubtedly one of the easiest games to learn, next part of the free blackjack guide I will tell you the different hands although if I’m honest there are only 2. The first is where the game gets its name from “blackjack” this is where you have a picture card, Ten, Jack, Queen or a King coupled with an Ace, originally casinos would give bonuses to players who had a hand consisting of a Jack of Spades or Clubs (black jack’s) and an Ace from this the name stuck and has been known thusly ever since. Secondly, there is the five card trick, this is any five cards which equal exactly 21, this is an unbeatable hand and can be compared to the Royal Flush in Poker.
