Classic Single Deck Blackjack Review, Tutorial, How to play, How to win

You can play Classic Single Deck Blackjack online on this page without registration. Classic Single Deck Blackjack is actually American Blackjack, which is considered the standard form of blackjack. Despite the name “single deck” it is actually played with 6 normal decks, 6x52 cards. I have no idea what the single deck in the name is supposed to mean. The game is also called twenty-one for obvious reasons, however, this name has fallen out of use in North America and Europe and casinos now exclusively use the term blackjack to refer to the game. Blackjack, among roulette, poker, baccarat and craps, is considered one of the classic casino games and after poker the second best known casino card game (and probably the most played).  This version from Net Entertainment came out in 2019 so, as is expected, it’s a 3D HD app compatible with mobile devices (especially good for touch devices). IMO the best version currently out there, despite the unfortunate name.

Classic Single Deck Blackjack - features, rules, betting, and payouts

Classic Single Deck Blackjack features

This a screencap of the Net Ent card game Blackjack Single Deck Touch for mobile devices and PC released in 2019.

Blackjack Single Deck features

 

The name single deck is actually a weird misnomer (or on purpose marketing obfuscation….), because the game actually uses 6 decks. This mobile compatible Blackjack app has the following features:

Decks: 6
Soft 17: hit
Insurance: yes, if dealer’s first card is ace
Double down: yes, after first two cards
Splits: 1
Double after split: no
Re-split aces: no
Draw to split Aces: no
Peek: Yes
Surrender: no

 

These are standard American blackjack rules. And the RTP is a standard 99.59% as well. In case you are new to RTP, this is the second highest RTP, only poker has higher RTP than blackjack. However, this only applies if you have a perfect blackjack strategy and play accordingly. You can find this blackjack strategy cheat sheet below.

This app lets you have 3 hands (also boxes) simultaneously as well. The app also features HD graphics and is compatible with most browsers and mobile devices (also play on PC).

 

Classic Single Deck Blackjack betting

The betting in Blackjack with insurance, doubling down and splitting can be quite complicated for someone who is new to blackjack, at least proper blackjack, how it is played in casinos, not what you would play at home with friends with much less and more flexible rules. Let’s see the various special bets in blackjack one by one:

Doubling down: You can double down after the first two cards. The initial bet is doubled and you automatically get a new card.

Insurance: If the dealer’s first card is an ace (,which is worth 1 or 11, in case the total of the dealer’s hand would be over 21 it is counted as a 1, and 11 if it’s less) you can buy insurance. Insurance is always half the initial bet and pays 2x the amount of the insurance if the dealer gets a blackjack. The whole bet is NOT! multiplied by 2x just the insurance part, the side bet. So if your original bet was $10, you choose insurance, it will cost you $5, you bet $15 total and get 2x of your insurance back, which is $10, so you still lose $5, but you would have lost $10 without insurance. So insurance doesn’t prevent you from losing money like many erroneously believe, but it helps you reduce the amount you lose.

Splitting: If the first two cards dealt have the same value you can split them into two separate hands. Splitting doubles your initial bet,  After that it plays just like a regular game. You can double down too after splitting.

Splitting with aces: You can split aces, however you can’t double down and you only get one more card after splitting.

 

Apart from these special bets you can’t change your initial bet. So take your time and make sure your initial bet is what you want it to be. Never play with more than you can afford to lose. Seek help if gambling becomes more than entertainment for you. Gamble responsibly.

 

Classic Single Deck Blackjack paytable, payouts

This is the paytable of the Single Deck Blackjack mobile app. You can read the details under the picture.

Blackjack paytable, the not so helpful paytable of the app, see details below

 

Insurance pays 2 x 0,5 of your original bet, but also cost 0,5 x your original bet. So in case of a €10 bet it cost € 5 to insure it, and you can win €10 with insurance, but the whole thing costs you €15 so you end up losing €5.

Blackjack is 3:2, meaning 3 dollars for every 2 dollar.

Winning gets you twice your original bet.

 

Classic Single Deck Blackjack wining strategy

Blackjack has a fantastic RTP of 99.59%, the second highest of any casino card game. But only if you follow a perfect blackjack strategy!

 

Classic Single Deck Blackjack history

European roulette was invented in Paris, France (the exact city is debated, but it’s certain that it was in France) by a French theologian/inventor/mathematician/writer Blaise Pascal, who created it as an experimental perpetual motion machine, not a gambling device. The fast colorful spinning wheel amazed people (this was before movies and computer games) so entrepreneurial casino and gambling hall owners copied it and turned it into the game we know today. By 1843 it was already widespread in Europe.

 

Classic Single Deck Blackjack rules

If you have blackjack but the dealer has an ace as a hole card you get even money 1:1 instead of the usual 3:2.

Classic Single Deck Blackjack free spins

It’s not possible to win free spins in European Roulette. However, some casinos occasionally offer free spins (also called free games, same thing) as part of a promotion, check out the offers on this page, if you are interested.

 

Classic Single Deck Blackjack terminology

Because European Roulette was invented in France most of the associated terminology is in French. It’s customary and polite to use the French words in a brick & mortar European casino when talking to a croupier, but if you don’t know them that’s also fine. Here are the the must-know terms associated with European Roulette:

This picture illustrates the so called carr bet, which is corner bet in English.

How a corner, carr bet looks like

Carr: Carr means corner in French. A corner bet is when you place a single chip on 4 numbers by placing it at the corner of the numbers.

Cheval: A split bet, placing one casino chip between two numbers thereby placing a bet on both numbers.

Colonne: French term, means a column, it’s betting on a column, a column bet.

Croupier: The equivalent of a dealer, the casino employee who oversees the roulette table. Sometimes called a host/hostess outside of Europe.

En Plein: Means a plain, a plain bet. Called a straight up bet in English, a single bet on a single number.

En Prison: Literally, in prison. An optional rule applied to even-money wagers* only. When the outcome is zero, your bet will be en prison (in prison) for a subsequent spin instead of just losing your bet. If you win during next spin you get your full bet back but no winnings, but if you lose, you lose the bet. Example: So if you bet $10 on even, but a zero comes, you will be put in prison, next an even number comes you get your $10 back and no more. However, if an odd number was spun instead you lose your bet. Somewhat increases RTP for even-money wagers

*Even money bets are: Red/Black, Odd/Even, Hi/Lo, sometimes written as Manque/Passe–in European (French) Roulette – or 1-18/19-36 (it’s 1to18 and 19to36 on the illustration above).

La Partage: Again, an optional roulette rule very similar to the En Prison. If you place an even-money bet and zero is spun your bet will be divided in half instead of losing it all. This really helps players and pushes the RTP up, from 97,3% to 98,65% for even money bets. This is better than En Prison.

 

This is a picture illustrating the positions of various french bets on a single zero, European Roulette wheel.

French Bets: These bets cover certain physical sections of the roulette wheel. They are popular in European casinos, particularly among high rollers. A player making a French bet is actually making several bets at once to cover all of the numbers in each wheel section.

  • Orphelins: Orphans. Betting on the numbers 9,13,14,20,17,34,6.
  • Le Tiers Du Cylindre: The third of the wheel. Betting on the numbers 27, 13, 36, 11, 30, 8, 23, 10, 5, 24, 16, 33.
  • Voisins du Zero: Neighbours of Zero. The largest and consequently most expensive French bet includes: 0, 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2, 25
  • Jeu Zéro: Game Zero. A smaller version of Voisins du Zero, only includes: 0, 32, 15, 12, 35, 3, 26

 

Transversale: French term meaning a street bet a.k.a row bet. Placing a casino chip at the end of a row, betting on the whole row.

Sixainne: French for 6 line bets. A line bet is a split row bet. 6 line bets covers all the numbers.

Finales a Cheval: In English: horse finals . You are betting a series of split bets (a cheval, a horse) on two adjacent numbers on the table and any variations of them. This means if you place a finales a cheval 3,6 you place split bets on 3,6 – 13,16 – 23,26 – 33,36, 4 bets in total.
