Fancy a game of classic Blackjack? You’re on the right spot. This version mirrors what you’d expect of any Casino-style Blackjack – graphics and all, for us to get you into the groove further. Oh… have you never ever played Blackjack? That’s absolutely fine. Playing here is as easy as ABC and we won’t laugh at you if we know you’re a rookie. Your target is to have a 10 card, king, queen or jack of any suit dealt along with an ace to get a Blackjack and win 1.5 times your bet.
All you have to do is click on a chip on the panel to set your bet per box, click “Deal” and sit back. To take another card click “hit”, if you like your hand and have no intention of changing cards, hit “stand”. To double your bet after viewing the first two cards click “double”. Should you wish to play two hands of Blackjack by splitting your cards, then you can do it that freely by clicking “split”. In case you have Blackjack and the dealer’s visible card is an ace, take even money by clicking… guess what? “Even money”. With a simple “yes” click you could buy insurance against the dealer getting Blackjack for the selected hand, while this game also gives you the possibility for buying insurance for all hands. It doesn’t take much to get familiar with this game, but if you need some time to adjust try the “play for fun” mode before you start winning away.
Deal for the Sky
In a casino, the sky is also known as surveillance. Casinos have more cameras than Hollywood, and you’re going to be watched incessantly. You’ll get used to that, but don’t forget that the reason for many rules is to accommodate the sky. You spread the last stack of chips to prove the bet or chips, you don’t let the player cover their bet with their hand at any time because the sky can’t see through their hand, and you follow the rules so you don’t stand out!
The sky and your pit bosses are happiest when every employee deals the same way, because that helps them find errors. If you look out of line, you might be out of work because you are cheating. Deal to procedures and you breeze through the day with no questions asked.
Know your Players
The final thing that will make you a great blackjack dealer, beyond practicing and being able to carry on a conversation, is knowing your players. Players like to be recognized, and asking and remembering their names is a big step in the right direction. You’ll help the pit bosses when you know Mr. Casey Jones’ name and you’ll help yourself make better tips.
A few more things you can help with include: getting an ashtray for a smoker, getting cocktail service, helping a player find two playing spots together for someone that likes to play to hands, and asking a pit boss for help when you know a player needs reservations for dinner, the hotel, or wants a marker (casino credit). Anticipate your player’s needs, and you can anticipate making more money.
