Mobile Blackjack at Spin Palace

Taking on the 21 dealer is one of the most exhilarating experiences you could enjoy at a mobile casino that accepts players in New Zealand. Mobile Blackjack is nothing less than a battle of wits, even when you are playing against the software that powers Spin Palace.

The goal of the game is to beat the dealer, which you do by playing a hand worth 21 points, the number that gives the game the other name by which it is popularly known. If Lady Luck is fully on your side, you will be dealt a Black Jack automatically worth the winning number of points.

However, she is known for being fickle, so there is a good chance you will need to work for those winnings. The most popular of all traditional casino games offers you various ways of doing that, and this is where the action for which the game is famed really comes into play.

You can beat the dealer and win NZ$ using your smartphone or tablet! In addition to this classic, our collection also includes pokies as well as a host of other exciting online casino games.

Classic Variations

For a couple of centuries after 21 first appeared in Europe, the gameplay remained relatively unaltered. The game’s arrival in North America saw a few changes made to how it was played; changes that ultimately influenced the American mobile Blackjack games at our casino.

Wondering what on earth we’re talking about? You are not alone – many Kiwi players who are perhaps more familiar with mobile Roulette or mobile Pokies wonder what the difference is between the European and American variations of online Blackjack are.

In the European one, the dealer gets a single, face-up card when you are dealt 2 face-up cards. This means the dealer cannot make a move until you have decided what to do with your hand. Only then is the second card dealt to complete the dealer’s hand.

In the American version of the game you and the dealer are dealt 2 cards each. Both of your cards are face-up, whereas only 1 of the dealer’s is visible. If there is a chance the dealer could have a natural Blackjack, the facedown card will be peeked at. Thankfully, most of these types of mobile casino games give you the option of placing an insurance bet for exactly this reason.

Strategy To Give You the Edge

The element of chance in online Blackjack means strategy, strictly speaking, is not essential to success in the game when playing at Spin Palace mobile casino. However, it sure helps.

Once all cards have been dealt, you need to make your move. The best way to do this is to keep the magic number 21 in mind when considering not only the total of your hand, but also the mobile Blackjack dealer’s 1 face-up card. Remember, you have the options of standing (simply playing your hand), hitting (taking another card), doubling your bet and playing your hand, or splitting your hand into 2 new hands.

Hit if your hand has a low total such as 7 or 8. Double if your hand is worth 10 or 11 points. Consider splitting cards of the same value, especially if you have 2 Aces or 2 8s. You should never split 2 5s or 2 10s. Stand if you have 12+ points when the dealer has 5 or 6 points, or if you have 13+ points when the dealer has 2 or 3 points, or if you have 17+ points when the mobile Blackjack dealer has 7+ points.

Try your hand at New Zealand’s best versions of 21 on the go, and enjoy these and other exciting games at Spin Palace Casino.
