It’s a casino classic, portrayed in every movie and every time you think of Vegas: Blackjack.
One of the most popular casino games around the world, Blackjack is a game where the number 21 can make or break fortunes of millions of players at any moment is also available live and online in Australia.
Blackjack is also one of the oldest casino card games. Somewhere in France in the 1700’s, the game got its start under the name “Twenty-One” (Vingt-et-Un in French). French kings and even Napoleon were fans of playing it, so it definitely has a rich tradition.
The name Blackjack can also mean several different things, but when gambling was introduced into the card game (some time in the 1900s), making a 21 with the jack of clubs or spades (the black jacks) paid 10 to 1. So that was obviously a very popular hand and the name stuck!
Australian fans of the game can nowadays can play live casino dealer Blackjack from anywhere, of course. That real casino feel can happen right in your living room or on mobile as you hit the beach or hang with your mates.
Ignition has been in Australia for many years already, establishing itself as a trusted brand in a crowded online casino world, and Blackjack is a super popular way to get into casino games.
We’ve also helped grow the game with new variations on the classic original. There are now 8 ways to play a form of Blackjack online with us, including some of the most frequent, round-the-clock offerings of live dealer Blackjack in Australia.
How to play Live Blackjack in Australia for real money?
With so many online Blackjack options at Ignition Casino, you can always find a seat at a table and find a game that you like. Real money live dealer Blackjack is often offered any time of day, with single deck or double deck being the most popular varieties.
Single Deck Blackjack
We have two options for single deck blackjack games: The New Blackjack and 21 Blackjack Classic. The New Blackjack game has a streamlined user interface and the buttons show up as they’re needed, making the screen less cluttered. It uses one deck that gets shuffled after each round, and the dealer hits on soft 17.
The classic version of Blackjack live really looks like a blackjack table at a casino. It uses one deck and the dealer hits soft 17, and you will get the same vibe that you can get in a real casino – except you don’t need to travel anywhere and can play anytime.
Double Deck Blackjack
Double Deck Blackjack game is almost as good as Single Deck Blackjack, and in the case of our casino, it’s even better. That’s because our Double Deck Blackjack requires the dealer to stand on soft 17 – a rule that favors players. The two decks are shuffled after each round.
In European Blackjack, the live dealer does not check for Blackjack at the start of the round, so it’s possible that you could double your bet and lose to a dealer blackjack. Other European Blackjack rules include doubling being restricted to hard totals of 9 to 11, and the dealer standing on soft 17.
Perfect Pairs is blackjack with a side bet that pays out when you land any pair in your initial two-card hand. You can win up to 25-1 on this side bet.
Eliminate hands of 15, 16 and 17 by using the “Zap” button in Zappit Blackjack. To compensate for this advantage, dealer scores of 22 result in a push – not a dealer bust.
If you get an ace as your first card, your chances of getting a blackjack are a solid 31%.
