Wazamba Available Blackjack Game Versions

Classic Blackjack

Classic Blackjack is the most common version of the game offered at Wazamba casino. It follows standard Game Rules and gameplay, where players aim to achieve a hand total closer to 21 than the dealer’s without exceeding it. The game is played with one deck of cards, and the dealer stands on all 17s. The payout for a blackjack is typically 3:2.

European Blackjack

European Blackjack is another popular variant at Wazamba. The main difference from the classic version is that the dealer does not receive a hole card until all player actions are completed. This means that players cannot double down or split if the dealer has a blackjack. European Blackjack also uses two decks of cards and offers the same 3:2 payout for a blackjack.

American Blackjack

American Blackjack is a variant that differs from the classic version mainly in terms of the number of decks used. At Wazamba, the game is played with six decks of cards. It also allows players to surrender their hand, giving them the opportunity to retrieve some of their initial bet in case they believe their chances of winning are low. The payout for blackjack is typically 3:2.

Live Blackjack

Wazamba also offers a Live Blackjack version for players who seek an immersive and interactive experience. In Live Blackjack, players can join a real-time game hosted by professional dealers. They can interact with the dealer and other players through a live chat feature. Live Blackjack follows the standard Blackjack Game Rules of the game, providing an authentic casino atmosphere from the comfort of one’s own home.

How to Play Blackjack

Objective

The main objective in Blackjack is to obtain a hand value closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand without exceeding 21. It is a game between the player and the dealer, where other players’ hands do not affect the gameplay.

Card Values

In Blackjack, numbered cards 2-10 are worth their face value, face cards (King, Queen, Jack) are worth 10, and the Ace can be valued as 1 or 11, depending on the player’s preference.

Gameplay

1. The game starts with each player, including the dealer, receiving two cards.
2. Players can view their own cards but can only see one of the dealer’s cards.
3. The player’s turn begins, and they have several options:
– Hit: Request an additional card to increase their hand value.
– Stand: Stay with their current hand and end their turn.
– Double Down: Double their initial bet and receive one more card, after which their turn ends.
– Split: If the player has a pair, they can split their hand into two separate hands and make an additional bet equal to their initial bet.
– Surrender: Depending on the variant, players may have an option to surrender their hand and retrieve half of their bet.
4. After all players have completed their turns, the dealer reveals their hole card and decides their actions based on the house rules. The dealer will continue to draw cards until they reach a total of 17 or more.
5. If a player’s hand value exceeds 21, they bust, and the dealer wins. If the dealer busts, players who haven’t busted win.
6. If neither the player nor the dealer busts, the hand with a value closer to 21 wins. If the player’s hand equals the dealer’s, it’s a push, and the player’s bet is returned.

Remember, it’s essential to learn the specific rules of the Blackjack variant you are playing, as they may have slight variations in gameplay and additional features.
