Due to changed regulations in October 2020, online gambling sites cannot offer jackpot and table games such as B. Roulette and Blackjack on the German market.


As an Online Gambling Site, Wildz offers you many Blackjack (or Black Jack) tables that work in the same way as the land-based game halls, minus some variants that are exclusively available in the Live Environment. However, all variants are subject to the standard game rules, which we will go through in more detail below, as well as the advantages of a live environment.

The History of Blackjack

The first reference to a game similar to Blackjack was Novelas Ejemplares by Miguel de Cervantes. Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote, quotes in Novelas Ejemplares a couple who cheat very successfully on Veintiuna, Spanish for twenty-one. Since this short story was written between 1601 and 1602, the game of Blackjack has its roots at least some time in the early 17th century and probably even earlier.

When the game was introduced in the United States, it included a rule whereby the player received a 10:1 payout if he received an Ace of Spades and a Black (Spades or Clubs) Jack (Jack). The name “Blackjack” This 10:1 payout was eventually abandoned; the name stuck, and the Spanish 21 is now commonly known as Blackjack.

By the 1950s, Blackjack had spread to almost every arcade worldwide. The game has become so ubiquitous that blackjack tables are typically the only table games offered in bars and nightclubs where gambling is permitted.

Modern Blackjack

Blackjack is one of the most accessible table games to play. The modern version uses a regular deck of cards, and the card suits are ignored. The cards each have a point value corresponding to the card’s rank, as shown below.

Players (and the dealer) start with a first-hand of two cards. You can take additional cards or stand at the current total. If your total exceeds 21, you lose. You win if you get a total less than or equal to 21 and a higher total than the dealer. If the dealer gets a higher total or the player goes over 21, the player loses his money. Players play against the dealer, not each other. It is possible that a player with a total of 20 and another with a total of 18 wins because they are comparing their hands to the dealer’s - not the other player’s.

There are other details about the game’s rules, but generally, that’s the gist. You can find Blackjack in arcades around the world and also online. Learning to play is as easy as starting up your computer, and online Blackjack is undoubtedly a great way to improve your game.

Blackjack game rules

In Blackjack, the goal is to get as close to 21 as possible without exceeding it. Any combination of cards that results in a value of 22 or more is called a BUST. Then you lost the game. A tie between player and dealer is a PUSH. In the event of a tie, money is neither won nor lost.

On a hard 17, the dealer must choose STAND.

At the start, the player and the dealer are dealt two cards. The player sees his two cards and one card from the dealer.

If the dealer has an Ace: The player can purchase “blackjack insurance” for half his bet. If you have this insurance and the dealer gets a blackjack, the player receives a payout 2:1, and the game round ends. If the dealer does not have Blackjack, the player forfeits this insurance fee, and the hand is played normally.

For any other dealer’s card, the following options are available depending on the player’s hand:

If the first two cards dealt total a value between 9 and 11: The player can double his bet (DOUBLE). After this doubling, another card is drawn. After doubling, the player cannot do anything except draw another card.

If the player’s first two cards have the same value: The player can split his hand (SPLIT). The bet is doubled, the cards are split, and two more cards are dealt from the deck to add a second to each split card. These hands are played normally - they can be doubled, split again, added another card (HIT) or held.

For all other values: With HIT, the player can draw additional cards from the deck to get closer to 21 without going beyond it. Once the player is satisfied with his card value, he chooses STAND to play his hand against the dealer’s.

Multihand Blackjack

As in traditional arcades, a player can bet against the dealer on a single deal with multiple hands. However, unlike traditional game halls, Wildz does not require you to have outrageous minimum bets that require the player to bet large amounts when attempting to play multiple hands simultaneously.

Although there is a chance that the dealer will reveal his cards and beat any of the player’s hands, the most common result is that the player hedges his bets by winning some hands and losing others, and, of course, it can also happen that the dealer gets a bust with a card value over 21. The player wins every hand he bets.

While some players prefer the multi-hand version primarily for stylistic reasons, playing this version also has a specific mathematical purpose: you can protect yourself against total losses.

Deal or No Deal Blackjack

Some versions of Blackjack are not available at any traditional arcade. Deal or No Deal Blackjack is an excellent example of a game that can only be managed by a computer.

Deal or No Deal Blackjack is a version that offers the player a deal before the dealer turns over his second card. If the player has bad cards and the dealer has an ace, the player is offered to surrender his hand for a small percentage of his bet before the dealer shows his second card. Conversely, if a player shows a couple of 10s and the dealer reveals a six, the player is offered an amount greater than his bet to end the round before playing out.

These options, available to the player before the dealer reveals his second card, could not be calculated by humans in this short time. In the case of Deal or No Deal Blackjack, this is a clear example of a game that only works in the digital version.

Blackjack odds

Blackjack has one of the highest RTP offered at online gambling sites, including Wildz.de. An RTP of over 99% means that, on average, the player receives more than €0.99 for every euro wagered on Blackjack titles. One reason this RTP is so high is that hands that end in a draw with the dealer are considered a push, while in some countries, there are unfair rules where, in the event of a draw, the dealer wins.

The chances of winning in Blackjack depend on the number of decks of cards used in the game. While most online blackjack games use a single deck of cards, traditional game halls use up to eight decks. This results in different winning probabilities depending on the number of decks used - 99.87% for a single deck and 99.35% for one with eight decks - but the overall payout rate remains relatively high.
