European Blackjack Basics
European blackjack usually uses 6 decks of cards. However, one may come across games with 4 or 8 decks as well. Just like in other variations, here a gambler plays against the dealer. To win the game, a gambler must score a blackjack, a 21 (or the number closer to 21).
If you have any experience playing the game, you’ll be pleased to know that the process of counting card value is the same, just like in the classic edition. In case you are a beginner, you’ll quickly learn to do it because the math is simple – 10s and face cards get you 10 points, and Ace can be either 1 or 11. As for the rest of the deck, the value coincides with the number on the card.
You should also keep in mind that the rules only seem very similar to the classic. In fact, there are several differences worth noting before wagering real money. Explore the main concepts and terms to increase your chances for a win.
