Mobile Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games in New Zealand. In fact, it might be second only to mobile pokies! You’ve got all the realistic graphics, special features and smooth functionality that make betting online so great, along with the convenience of being able to play anywhere. Busy players still get to enjoy world-class entertainment, and stand to win substantial payouts.
As with mobile Roulette and other mobile casino games, the rules in Blackjack are the same as on a desktop platform and in land-based establishments. Your goal is to get a hand total of 21, or less than that, and beat the dealer hand at the same time.
In our mobile casino, you’ll place your bet using your fingertips on the touchscreen. Even with the smaller displays, this helps to make the action feel very immediate and authentic. You might be sitting in your office, standing in line at the supermarket or watching the kids practice soccer, but you’ll feel like you’re seated at one of the best tables in Las Vegas or Macau.
After you’ve placed your bet, you and the dealer will each get 2 cards. The royal and number cards are worth 10 and their stated value respectively. Aces count as 11 or 1, depending on what works best with the rest of the hand.
You’ll be able to see both of your cards, and 1 of the dealer’s will also be face-up. Based only on this information, you need to decide what you want to do next. With our mobile casino games, you can Hit (get another card), Double Down (double your wager and get a new card) or Split a Pair (divide a Pair into 2 hands and get a card dealt to each of them).
When you are satisfied, you Stand and end the round. At this point, both hands are revealed. If your total is 21 exactly, you’ve got Blackjack and get an incredible 3:2 payout. If your hand is worth less than 21 but more than the dealer’s, or the dealer’s is worth more than 21, you win a 1:1 return. This might sound simple but once you’ve played at Vegas Palms mobile casino, you’ll see how endlessly fascinating the games are.
More than mobile Roulette, mobile pokies or virtually anything else, playing Blackjack involves thinking quickly and using shrewd tactics. You can find strategy charts that show you exactly what to do for every possible combination of the first 2 hands you are dealt.
Over time, you’ll know what to do so automatically that you won’t even need to look at the charts. They work especially well as quick references when you are playing in our mobile casino, and have only a few moments to spare.
As you develop your skills, you can also try card counting with our live dealer platform, and learn more about the statistical probabilities of every possible outcome. The longer you play, the more intriguing and rewarding these mobile casino games will become. Get started now to see what we mean!
