Online Casino Blackjack In New Zealand

Blackjack is a classic casino game that relies on a mix of strategy and chance. Played since the 1800s, it really took off during the two World Wars and is now one of the most popular online casino games. That’s right, you no longer need to visit a brick-and-mortar casino to chase the dealer to 21.


Instead, you can explore RNG and live dealer variants in a safe, secure environment at Spin Galaxy Online Casino. Blackjack is available to play here on desktop or mobile any place, any time.

How online casino blackjack is played

Blackjack has rules, but they are easy to understand and there is an opportunity to develop your own style and strategy. In blackjack, the ultimate aim is to beat the dealer to 21 points. The strategy part comes in when you decide to hit, stand, split or double down.


The King, Queen and Jack count 10 points each, the Ace is 1 or 11 depending on the other cards in your hand, and the rest of the cards are at face value.


Here we break down the basics to play a game of casino blackjack:


  • Use your chips to place a wager
  • The dealer gives each player two cards
  • Select “Hit” to receive another card
  • Select “Stand” if you don’t want any more cards
  • The dealer reveals the closed cards
  • Winnings are allocated

Whether you hit or stand depends on the total number of points you have in your hand. More than 21 points and you go “Bust”, the house gets a win if the dealer has 21 points. But if the dealer’s hand is more than 21, the player with the closest score below 21, wins.


If the cards aren’t your thing, you can always play roulette online.

  • Vegas Strip Blackjack – Microgaming is known for its fantastic casino software, and Vegas Strip Blackjack is no different. This is American blackjack and is traditionally played with 4 standard decks of cards.
    If the dealer’s hand is 10 points, they will take a peak at the hidden card. If that card makes it 21 points, they show their hand and it is the end of the round. If the player also has 21, the bet is returned, otherwise, the player loses.
  • Atlantic City Gold Blackjack – Another one by Microgaming, this is a mix of classic blackjack rules where players can fold for half of their bet, re-split cards up to 3 times and unlimited double downs.
