Play Online Blackjack at Fruity King

Are you from New Zealand and looking to play real money blackjack online? If so, then look no further than Fruity King. 

With great strategizing opportunities and a low house edge, blackjack has been one of the world’s most popular gambling games for hundreds of years.

How to Play Online Blackjack

Playing against the dealer, instead of other players at the table – your aim is to get as close to the number 21 as possible. This must be achieved without surpassing 21, and whilst maintaining a higher value hand than the dealer. 

If either you or the dealer has a hand over 21, that person loses.

One of the best ways to learn how to play this exciting table game is by having a go!

Online Blackjack Rules and Payouts

The first 2 cards you receive will be given to you with one face down and one face up. Again, when playing online blackjack games – the aim is to get as close to 21 as possible. 

  • Jack, Queen, and King are valued at 10, whereas the Ace is either a ‘hard 11’ or ‘soft 1’. 
  • Numbers cards will be the same value as that number, for instance, a 9 is worth 9. 
  • If you are lucky enough to land a value of 21 from just 2 cards – this is called a ‘blackjack hand’.

As such, when you have worked out the value of your hand, you can either ‘hit’ or ‘stand’. If you choose to ‘hit’, the dealer will deal another card for you. 

You would be most likely to take this route if you are willing to take on the risk of the dealer perhaps having a superior hand. Or if you are fairly certain you won’t go bust with your upcoming card.

  • If you choose to ‘stand’, you are making it clear that you don’t want any more cards, are happy with what you have, and the dealer can move onto the next player. 
  • This will usually be actioned if you have a high value hand already, for example, more than 17 or 18. 
  • Such a high value of cards will cause an exciting level of uncertainty – in terms of whether the dealer’s hand is going to beat yours.

When it comes to payouts when playing online blackjack at Fruity King, you can expect between 96%-100% RTP. With that said, the majority of our blackjack games offer a payout percentage of between 99%-100%.

Top Blackjack Strategies and Tips

You may have heard of an online blackjack strategy or two – such as card counting for one. If you are thinking of trying to utilize such a strategy – you will find it fruitless. 

This is because the cards are re-shuffled after each and every deal, not to mention the fact that the ‘shoe’ could be made up of as many as 8 decks of cards.

A top tip used by both newbies and seasoned players alike is to make the most of demo online blackjack games. It’s a great way to learn the ropes of any game, without risking your blackjack budget. 

Here at Fruity King, we cater for all levels of experience, so we also offer a reference to the rules when playing – for your guidance.

1. How do you play blackjack?

Playing blackjack entails trying to get as close to 21 points as possible, to beat the dealer. Each card holds a different value, for instance, Jack, Queen and King are valued at 10 points each, Ace is a soft 1 or a hard 11, and numbered cards are valued as they are – so a 2 will be worth 2. Get 21 you win,  alternatively, get closer to 21 than the dealer and you win. Go over 21 and you ‘go bust’.

2. Is blackjack the same as 21?

Yes, blackjack and 21 are the same game. If it’s Spanish 21 you are looking to compare, then this is not the same game as online blackjack. 

3. How can I play blackjack for free?

You can play blackjack for free by signing up to Fruity King and making the most of our many free blackjack games on offer. This is a great way to find your feet at an online casino.

4. Can you really win at blackjack?

Yes, you can really win at blackjack. However, you must beat the hand of the dealer and get either 21 or as near as you can. Exceed 21 and you will go bust and lose the game.

5. Do blackjack strategies work?

Blackjack strategies such as card counting have been proven to be ineffective when playing a game such as this. The dealers’ cards can contain as many as 8 decks, and the cards are shuffled thoroughly between every deal. The house edge is that the dealer often has a hidden card – the face value of which you must speculate on.
