What is Blackjack?

 

The objective of Blackjack is clear: Beat the dealer’s hand total, but don’t exceed 21. Blackjack guides are a good place to start when you’re learning to play Blackjack. Remember, you’re competing against the dealer and not against other players. Even if there are 5 players at your table, it doesn’t matter how well they are performing. Focus on your hand and the dealer’s hand – that’s all you need to do.

Blackjack is one of the world’s most popular casino card games. Blackjack can be played in multiple formats, including a Single Hand or Multihand version of the game. Unlike poker, Blackjack is played against the dealer (the house), not against other players. The goal of Blackjack is simply to beat the dealer’s hand total without exceeding 21.

 

Players are dealt 2 cards face up. These are known as pocket cards or hole cards. The dealer is also dealt 2 cards, although only one of them is visible. Based on the cards the player is holding and the dealer’s upcard, decisions must be made. Players can hit, stand, double down, split, surrender, or take insurance. We will introduce you to all these options later on in our Blackjack guide!


How Do You Play Blackjack?

 

Play begins when you place your bets (after selecting your chip size) at the table.  There are rules in place designed to steer you towards a better understanding of the game and ultimately to enhance your enjoyment of classic Blackjack. The dealer shuffles the cards after every hand and deals 2 cards face up to each player at the table. Only one of the dealer’s cards is visible,the other is face down.

Okay your cards right with BJ at Karamba!

Your actions will be determined by two things: The cards you’re holding and the dealer’s card. It doesn’t matter what cards other players at your table are holding.  These include Hit (take another card), Stand (do nothing), Double (take one more card and double your bets), Split (split two identical cards), or take insurance if the dealer’s upcard is an Ace. Contrary to popular opinion, the goal is not to hit 21 – it’s simply to beat the dealer’s hand total without going bust.

Once you’ve determined the actions you will take, allow your hand to play out and hope for the best. Karamba advocates responsible gaming practices with all Blackjack games. This rollicking casino card game ranks highly with players, and for good reason. Blackjack is suave and sophisticated, yet fun at the same time. It’s a great game to play if you’re looking for a challenge, and there are multiple Blackjack games available at Karamba online casino.

 

What Are the Rules of Blackjack?

Blackjack is built on a framework of rules designed to guide you through your gameplay. These rules will vary from one game to the next, including things like Blackjack payouts, will the dealer draw to 16 and stand on all 17s (hard and soft)? What are the minimum and maximum bets? How many hands can you play simultaneously? Here’s what you should know…

Blackjack Etiquette

 

Basic table rules such as Blackjack etiquette apply to all land-based casinos. Unless otherwise indicated, players are not to touch the cards with their hands. Players go head-to-head against the dealer in pursuit of the highest value hand. Once cards have been dealt – from left to right – the Blackjack dealer will receive the final card. After the deal, the action will rotate from one player to the next. When it is your turn to act, you have several options available. You can hit or stand. Once everyone has had a chance to act, the dealer will reveal his/her hand.

What you should know about Blackjack: 

    • The dealer is bound by rules as well. He or she may have to draw until 16 and be required to stand on all 17s. If the player’s hand and the dealer’s hand are equal in value, a push ensues. At this point, players will simply be refunded their bet.

 

    • If at any time you or the dealer exceeds 21, it’s game over. The strongest hand always scores in Blackjack.

 

    • Blackjack tables have set limits. There is a minimum bet and a maximum bet per game. Whether you’re a casual player, or a high roller, it’s important to pick a Blackjack table that caters to your bankroll requirements.

 

Blackjack Insurance

 

If the dealer’s upcard is an Ace, the player can opt for an insurance bet. This is to protect the player against the dealer having Blackjack (Ace + 10 value card). The insurance bet is placed over and above the initial bet.

Your decision to hit or stand is an important one in Blackjack. Remember any hand total of 11 could theoretically be a maximum of 21 if you draw a face card, or 10. As you get closer to 21, the likelihood of drawing a high-value card depends on how many of those cards remain in the deck.

Splitting Cards

 

Blackjack games also allow players to spit the cards. When you split a pair, you are effectively playing two hands. Sometimes you can re-split cards, others not. Many players choose not to split a pair that is worth 20, but all of them will split a pair of Aces since there is always a possibility of hitting Blackjack. When you double down, you will double your bet and take one final card. Blackjack games are also associated with many optional bets known as side bets. These bets may not always be available, and they vary from one table to the next.

 

What Are the Cards Worth in Blackjack?

 

Blackjack card values are easy to understand. The only card that causes a little confusion is the Ace since it can assume a value of 1 or 11. Cards 2 – 10 sport their nominal value (face value), while Jack, Queen, and King have a 10-value. The game is typically played with between 1 and 8 decks. These contain 52 cards per deck. A soft hand includes an Ace counted as 11, while a hard hand has an Ace counted as 1. A soft hand gets its name because the Ace can be 1 or 11, and a hard hand indicates that the Ace value is limited to just 1.

How Do You Deal Blackjack at Home?

 

Blackjack is a popular casino card game for friends and family at home. Home games are easy to set up. The first order of business is to shuffle the cards. Next, have one of the players at the table cut the cards in the deck. After the cards are placed in a shoe (card holder), the burn card (first card of the shoe) should be removed. Players should all be seated in a semicircle around the dealer, before bets are placed at the table.

The deal begins from the left of the dealer to the right of the dealer. 1 card is dealt to each player in turn face up, followed by one downcard to the dealer. On the second deal, another card is dealt face up to each player, followed by the dealer’s upcard.

Each of the players upcards must be visible to all other players at the table and the dealer. If an Ace is showing, the dealer must ask players if they wish to take insurance. Play starts with the player to the left of the dealer and continues around the table. Players have the option to hit, stand, double, split, or simply surrender their hands. Once all players have acted, the dealer will reveal the cards. If the dealer loses, the players will be paid out and the cards will be shuffled for a new game of Blackjack!

Here is what you need to know about Scratchcards:

 

What are Scratchcards?

 

Scratch cards are instant games. They typically present as a square-shaped card with a grid-like format of hidden symbols. Many scratch card games feature a 3 x 3 grid; however, it is possible to find multiple grid formations on these games. The objective of scratch games is simple: Match the required number of symbols, as indicated on the face of the scratch card ticket for the associated reward. Usually, players are required to match 3 symbols to activate payouts. There is no specialised technique for playing these games successfully, save effective bankroll management. Players are encouraged to adopt responsible gaming practices with all online casino games.

Karamba S cratch card winning games

Each scratch card game features several elements, including: a minimum bet, a maximum bet, playlines, RTP (Return to Player), a unique theme, symbols, and the paytable. Karamba scratch games are available on PC, Mac, Android, or iOS devices. All outcomes of scratch card games are determined by RNGs (Random Number Generators). These software programs are governed by algorithms that randomise the outcomes of every game. Traditional scratchcards are made of paper, or cardboard, and they are coated with a plastic-like substance which conceals the symbols beneath. This opaque covering must be removed before any payouts can be determined. Much the same is true with an online scratchcard game – except that these are scratched virtually.

What’s Entertaining about Scratch Cards?

 

“Scratch cards are easy to play, and everyone stands just as much chance as anyone else. No specific gameplay, or style is needed.”

All it takes is a ticket, and good fortune to come your way. With scratchcard games such as Power Cash, players don’t need to learn complicated betting rules, bet types, or probability analysis to enjoy these games. There are no charts or gambling guides required either. Scratchcards are designed for the purpose of instant fun. They can be played in between games of blackjack online, baccarat, roulette games, or slots. They are ideal as stand-alone casino games, or as the perfect in-betweener.

Follow these Scratch Card Rules of Thumb

Every scratch card player should understand the rules of play when it comes to scratchcard games.

Have Fun:  Scratching is first and foremost about having fun! Outcomes of these games have nothing to do with the size of your wagers, or the number of tickets you buy. Ultimately, it’s about how much fun you have and what you’re comfortable wagering.

Set a Scratch Card Budget: Everyone is limited by their budget in scratch card games. It doesn’t matter how wealthy you are, you still have a budget to work with. Lottery tickets and scratch card tickets are highly alluring. The glitz and glam of landing combinations of symbols can be overpowering and can entice you to spend more than you ought to. A great workaround is to go into the store with a set amount of cash in hand. Don’t take any more than you need to purchase your tickets. Same goes when playing scratchcard games online – budget is basic!

What Are 3 Reel Slot Machine Games?

Medusa Video Slot@Karamba

Back in the prehistoric age, when online slots were sci-fi fantasy people played classic slots. Many of these classic slot machine games featured 3 spinning reels, a handful of paylines, and mechanical arms. 3 reel slots are easy to spot at the casino – there are only 3 spinning reels used to form combinations of symbols. 3 reel slots typically don’t include in-game animation, wilds, scatters, bonus rounds, and other Hollywood-style features.

Don’t be misled – 3 reel slots are anything but boring. These slot games showcase all the symbols such as red 7s, cherries, bars, bells, and other fruity symbols and many of these classic slot machine games got a makeover with the launch of online casinos, and now they’re enjoying rising popularity with slot fans across the UK.

3 reel slots feature 3 vertical rows, with limited combinations available. They are full of nostalgia, and many software providers are shifting their attention to create fun 3 reel slot machine games for players.

What Are 5 Reel Slot Machine Games?

5 reel slot machine games are very popular with online casino players. Players looking to enjoy interactive gameplay will have fun playing 5 reel slot games. These games are packed with interesting themes and entertaining in-game features.5 reel slots feature 5 vertical reels, and multiple paylines.Many 5 reel slot games feature 20 paylines, although it’s not uncommon for 5 reel slots to have dozens of paylines available.

 

What are Paylines?

 

Slot machine games are filled with many elements including a display box, a paytable, reels, bets per line, the play/spin button, and paylines. The number of paylines varies from one slot game to the next, depending on whether you’re playing classic slots, video slots, or progressive slots.

For the most part, classic slot machine games with 3 reels feature a handful of paylines while video slots showcase 20 paylines, 25 paylines, or even 50 paylines.

A payline is a winning line or a betting line. Originally, slots only featured a single payline. The paytable indicates the payouts per payline, and payouts are made horizontally, and in many different combinations including trapeziums, zigzags, diagonal payouts etc. On average, slot machine players can expect 25 paylines – 30 paylines on games.

Many of our slots at Karamba allow you to pick the number of paylines you want to play, while others have fixed paylines in play on every spin. Variable slot machines allow players to choose a minimum of 1 payline up to the maximum. Progressive jackpots are typically played at full throttle with all the paylines in play.

What Are Video Poker Slots?

Video poker games are fashioned off traditional 5-card draw poker. Players compete against the computer for the best 5-card hand. Back in the old days, poker players would sit around the table and compete against one another for the poker pots.

Now, thanks to the advances in slot machine terminals and online casino gaming, online video poker games are readily available to players. You can compete for rewards, based on the strength of your hand. At Karamba, we’ve got great video poker slots like Jacks or Better with 1, 5, 10 or 25 hands available.

In video poker games like Jacks or Better, the minimum hand that qualifies on the pay table is Jacks or Better. Depending on the number of coins you wager, the pay table will reflect different amounts. As with traditional poker, the strength of your hand determines the size of the payouts.

In Jacks or Better, the ranking increases with the following hand combinations: Two Pair, Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four of a Kind, Straight Flush, and a Royal Flush. At the top end, 4,000 coins are up for grabs (on top bets) when a suited 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace form.

 

Jackpot Slots and How they Work

What is a jackpot? How does it work? Where can you play jackpot slots?Slot machine games typically offer fixed jackpot payouts. A jackpot is a lump sum payout that usually rises as more players deposit coins into that slot machine game.

With progressive jackpots, a percentage of every bet goes towards the jackpot prize pool. Some people think that regular slots don’t have jackpots, but this isn’t true. However, jackpot slots are progressive jackpot slots games, while regular slots simply have jackpots that are fixed. Many leading software companies power the platforms of multiple online casinos. When players at any of these casinos wager on a game, a percentage of that wager goes towards the progressive jackpot pool.

With a standalone slot game, only bets on that slot game at that online casino will feed the jackpot. The difference here is the network. The bigger the network, the bigger the potential progressive jackpot payouts. Cosmic Fortune is a jackpot game at Karamba, and it’s filled with quite futuristic, featuring different aliens and space ships and a jackpot amount to be won.

There you have it! Your guide to choosing a slot machine game. Play responsibly and enjoy the experience.
