Big 5 Blackjack Gold is an exciting online blackjack game and whether you are a player in Toronto, London or New York or in fact anywhere else on the globe you should be impressed by this game. Blackjack players argue that it is a particularly exciting version of blackjack partly because it is played with five regular decks of 52 playing cards(as opposed to the standard two decks) that are shuffled before each game.
Before you play the game you must be aware that the primary goal is to beat the Dealer. A victory over the dealer occurs in two ways – firstly you can attain a hand with a higher value without exceeding the limit of 21 or secondly you can beat him because his hand goes ‘bust’(that is goes over the limit of 21) before yours.
Beginner players especially, should take note that blackjack consists of 2 cards – an ace and a ten. It is the crème de la crème of hands – it cannot be beaten by the dealer, only matched.
Furthermore the ace is a unique card because unlike other cards in the pack it has two values – 1 and 11. Depending on the value of your hand you can choose which value you want it to hold during the game. If for example you have a Jack of Spade and draw an Ace you will obviously give it the value of 11 as this would then comprise a hand of blackjack.
In Big 5 Blackjack Gold one of the most significant factors to take into account when playing is the payout table, which can be found in the help files on the casino software.
