A Treasure Trove for Twenty-One
The game originated in Spain, Italy and France, so its refined simplicity is not really surprising. With 21 being such a key number in the game, it also makes sense that it was originally known as Twenty-One in various languages and often still goes by that name.
Like online Roulette, you can experience different variations of Blackjack at our Casino. Over the years many versions developed, with a major change to the rules coming about when the game was introduced to America.
In the original European Twenty-One, the dealer has 1 face-up card while the player gets 2, and then after the player has made their move they get a second card. In the American game, the dealer gets 2 cards at the same time as the player, with 1 facing up.
Before the player makes their move, under certain conditions, the dealer can check for 21 to prevent losing more money on wagers. As you can imagine, this affects your Blackjack strategy decisions in significant and tantalising ways that you’ll see in action for yourself when you play these online casino games at Ruby Fortune.
You can also play Vegas Downtown, Atlantic City, Hi-Lo European, Spanish and many other variations of Twenty-One with us, including immersive live dealer games. There aren’t quite as many options as there are with online slots, but we can assure you that we’ve got the finest selection in Canada and roll out new options whenever Microgaming introduces them.
