The casino is in town and blackjack is proving to be one of the most popular tables as ever. However, this is no ordinary game of blackjack because the rules could not be simpler and there are three chances to win every time you play! There is also an instant top prize of $/€/£10,000 to make this game even more exciting. If you’ve played blackjack before you will know that the aim is to get as close to 21 as possible without busting and beat the dealer’s hand. There are many brilliant variations of this classic game, which you can find at online casino, and some rules are more complicated than others. Splitting hands, hitting, sticking and doubling up are all part and parcel of the rules, but with Blackjack Scratch all those elements are thrown out of the window because you simply need to beat the dealer’s hand with the two cards you are dealt. Nothing could be simpler so find a place at the table, look the dealer in the eye and let’s play.
To kick-start the game you must select the stake you wish to play with and then click on ‘Deal’. You will be dealt three hands and in every case one of the two cards will be upturned. However, the dealer only receives one hand - again only one of the cards is shown. No need to consider your strategy at this point, simply scratch away at your three hands and the dealer’s to reveal the totals and then compare them to see if you have won. If you have a higher hand than the dealer’s then the pay-out displayed underneath your two cards is yours! The prizes range from $/€/£1 to $/€/£10,000, but new customers to online casino games are already on to a winner because they will receive 100% up to $/£/€400 (plus 200 free spins) as a welcome bonus.
Although Blackjack Scratch is a simple game there are different ways to play it depending whether you like the slow or fast versions. If you prefer suspense then scratching the individual cards is the option for you. But, if you want to speed things up you can hit the ‘Scratch All’ option in which your three hands will be revealed simultaneously before the dealer’s is shown. To make things even quicker there is an ‘Autoplay’ function which allows you to play between 1-99 games where all three hands are revealed at the same time. Blackjack has taken another step forward at online scratch cards where the choice is staggering.
