We're very pleased to introduce the first playing card game we’ve ever built using HTML5: Social Blackjack. Blackjack, alternatively known as Twenty-One, is probably the most popular table game in the world. It's the only card game that is played in every casino in the US.
This game follows most of the universally accepted rules of the Blackjack. Six decks of cards are used in this game. Each card has an assigned value. The values of cards 2 to 10 are equivalent to their numbers, while face cards (Jacks, Queens, and Kings) are 10 apiece. An ace can be counted as 1 or 11, depending on the card combination the player is holding. The aim of the game is to get cards that add up to 21, or close to it, without going over it (known as busting or getting busted).
Player is given a starting amount of $10,000, and can bet a minimum of $500 and maximum of $50,000. The chips come in the following colors and values: Red ($50), Green ($100), Blue ($500), Purple ($1000), and Black ($5000).
After betting, player is dealt 2 cards at first, and can choose one of the following options:
Hit - Request another card from the deck
Stand - Decline an additional card
Double - Double their bet
Surrender - Give up half of your bet
Split - Separate two cards with same value into two hands
The dealer must continue drawing cards his until he reaches at least 16. When he gets a 17, he must stand.
Similar to many real life versions of the card game, Blackjack pays 3 to 2. This means that if a player draws a Blackjack (i.e. 2 cards that total 21, such as an ace and a king), the player gets 3 times the half value of his/her bet. For example, if a player bets $1000 and gets a blackjack, player wins $1,500.
You can play this game casually on your own, but we’ve made playing blackjack a whole lot more fun and social by including a tournament mode. This lets 2 or more people play together and chat with each other in real time.
Players can also choose from several different avatars, and customize their own nickname.
