Blackjack Scratch is a simple and enjoyable addition to the online casino games suite at Casino.com South Africa. It is a combination of two popular game categories – the online casino table game of blackjack and online scratch card games. When you open the game you will be faced with a multi-player blackjack table. There are three player hands and the dealer. Players do not actually need to know how to play blackjack in order to enjoy this game; however, being familiar with the table game will certainly make this scratch card game simpler to play.
To begin Blackjack Scratch you will need to place your bet. Bet sizes vary, allowing you to play with a bet size that suits your bankroll. Click on Deal and a casino chip will be dealt to each player and two cards will be dealt to each player and to the dealer – one card face up and one card face down. You must then scratch each of the face down cards to reveal the final card of the hand. When you move your mouse over the card you are ready to scratch, a silver coin will appear for scratching. Note that there is no option in this game to hit for another card. The two cards that you are originally dealt are the two that will make up your final blackjack hand that is compared to the dealer’s. Then, scratch the dealer’s face down card to reveal the dealer’s final hand. You can rather choose the Scratch All option which will automatically reveal all the face down cards.
While you don’t have to understand the rules of blackjack, it will certainly make the game easier to follow. The hands are compared by their total value which is made up of the value of the two cards in the hand. Each card has a value – 2 through 10 have their face value; face cards have a value of 10 and Ace has a value of 1 or 11. The highest valued hand is Blackjack – a value of 21 made up of an Ace and a card valued at 10.
Once all of the cards have been scratched and revealed, the player hands are compared to the dealer’s hand. The player wins if one or more of the hands beat the dealer’s hand. The payout for the winning hand is the amount that is listed below that hand – a random amount up to 10,000x your bet.
Visit the scratch card games suite at the casino to enjoy this fast-paced and simple blackjack-style scratch card game. Try your luck and play for the chance to win a huge payout off a small bet.
