Also known in some circles as ‘21’ or ‘Pontoon’, Blackjack belongs to a select group of table games that have endured as pillars of the casino landscape for centuries.
Whereas some table games feature complex gameplay, the rules for this casino staple are fairly simple. Added to an elevated RTP configuration that makes it one of the best value casino games ever invented, it’s easy to understand Blackjack’s longevity.
The aim of the game is to get as close to 21 as possible without going over, or ‘busting’. A round of Blackjack begins with both Player and Dealer receiving two cards apiece. At this point only the Player is permitted to see both of their opening two cards, while the Dealer exposes just one to the table.
It’s worth noting that Aces can either be worth 1 or 11 in Blackjack, while Face/Royal/Picture cards share a value of 10. These comprise all Jacks, Queens and Kings in the deck.
Despite the differing interpretations in Blackjack rules, all games adhere to the following gameplay:
Whenever the Dealer shows any card other than an Ace, the Player is afforded additional options depending on their holding:
At over 99%, Blackjack famously offers Players one of the highest RTP (Return to Player) scores of any online casino game. On average, that means you can expect to recoup at least €99 for every €100 invested playing the beloved card game - another reason Players are lured to its green felt time and time again. Your cause is helped since tied hands are typically deemed a ‘Push’ in Blackjack - a practice unfortunately not followed in certain countries where the RTP clocks in slightly less favourably as a result.
Blackjack RTP can even stretch as high as 99.87% in some land-based casinos that opt to use a single card shoe, as opposed to multiple decks in play that bring the score down a few notches. If dealing from a total of 8 shoes, for example, RTP subsequently falls to 99.35%. Notwithstanding the small percentage point discrepancies, Blackjack remains one of the very best value games available for casino Players across the entire market.
To counterbalance Blackjack’s relatively high RTP score, the game’s weighting towards Bonus Money eligibility at Wildz has been adjusted accordingly. Check out Section 8 of our general Ts and Cs to learn more about Wagering Requirements and their impact on certain game categories.
This table displays your relative likelihood of emerging a winner in any random hand according to the Dealer’s opening card, assuming basic strategy is applied:
|Dealer’s Exposed Card||Dealer Bust %||Player Advantage|
|10, J, Q, K||21.43%||-16.9%|
The data suggests that in general, the lower the Dealer’s starting card, the higher your chances of winning the hand. An optimal scenario would see the Dealer receive an Up card of 5 during any random hand - giving you a 23.2% advantage.
The Dealer’s odds tilt significantly the other way when they hold higher value cards, negating your edge all the way down to -16.9% if a card worth 10 is revealed.
At Wildz, you can enjoy most of the features found in games hosted inside brick and mortar venues. It’s possible, for example, to wager on multiple hands in any one single deal. And to ensure fairness of operations, we don’t enforce inflated minimum bets which risk pushing Players outside of their comfort zones and eat into their bankroll. Furthermore, this practice is not deemed to be in the spirit of the game.
The biggest reason Players adopt a multihand strategy is to hedge against total losses and subsequently lower the house edge. This helps manipulate the odds in a Player’s favour slightly, enhancing their win potential over time.
Wildz is home to several Blackjack variants designed to accommodate players of all tastes and wallet-sizes. Why not get the party started with a few rounds playing Blackjack Party, or feel the power of Power Blackjack. Then when you’re ready, turn up the heat at a Speed Blackjack table.

Each of these unique variants put their own fun and exciting twist on classic table gameplay, listed alphabetically at the bottom of this page along with all other Blackjack games.
There are conflicting stories regarding the true origins of Blackjack, but most accounts trace its emergence back to the 17th century.
According to Wikipedia, a Spanish author called Miguel de Cervantes is cited as a founding father of the game. Famous for producing Don Quixote, one of the very earliest examples of modern novels and considered by some to be one of the finest literary works ever written, de Cervantes was an avid gambler himself. Among his more celebrated works, he also penned Rinconete y Cortadillo, a short piece centred around a pair of cheats working in Seville.
This tag-team were experts at systematically fleecing unwitting punters playing veintiuna (Spanish for 21), and thus, Blackjack was born! Mirroring the game we all know today, the goal in veintiuna was to get as close to 21 as possible without going over, while an Ace was said to be worth both 1 and 11, further strengthening those claims.
The halfway point of the last century saw an explosion in the number of land-based casinos all over the world spreading the game. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to find Blackjack tables located in bars, nightclubs and other entertainment venues with gambling licenses, owing to its unwavering popularity.
Did you ever hear about the team of math wizards from MIT University in the US who etched their name into folklore by successfully cleaning out casinos across Vegas to the tune of $10million (€8million) over a decade-long reign, applying simple Blackjack card-counting techniques? The method entails keeping track of all cards dealt, allowing Players to adjust their bet sizes and strategy accordingly.
Such was the unprecedented scale of the team’s success that the tale even made its way to paperback via the 2005 release Busting Vegas, authored by Ben Mezrich.

Many people believe Blackjack dates as far back as the 17th century, when the very first version of the game appeared in a book titled 'Novelas exemplares'.
