Internet Blackjack Has More Potential Than You Might Think

Blackjack has managed to preserve its popularity in the transition from conventional to online casinos. The reason is not loyalty to the tradition, but the thrill provided by the subtleties of the game’s variations.

London, United Kingdom, September 13, 2007 --( The predecessor of internet blackjack is, of course, traditional blackjack, one of the most popular casino card games in the world. Much of blackjack's popularity is due to the mix of chance with elements of skill, and the publicity that surrounds card counting (keeping track of which cards have been played since the last shuffle).

When blackjack was first introduced in the United States it was not very popular, so gambling houses tried offering various bonus payouts to get the players to the tables. One such bonus was a 10-to-1 payout if the player's hand consisted of the ace of spades and a black Jack. This hand was called a "blackjack" and the name stuck to the game even though the bonus payout was soon abolished. As the game is currently played, a "blackjack" may not necessarily contain a jack or any black cards at all.

The game now has a lot of varieties, and this tendency is even more evident at online casinos. Probably the champions among internet blackjack games are those available at the Red Lounge Casino ( The casino, which is rated number one for best payouts, offers a good blend of classical features and new opportunities which add to the trill of the game.

To name one example, the Red Lounge Multi-Hand Blackjack provides some of the most favorable conditions - online as well as offline. The lower the number of decks used by the house the greater your chances of winning. Most casinos offer 6 or 8 deck games. The Multi-Hand Blackjack however has only 4 decks.
Another interesting feature of the game is the Surrender option. It gives players the opportunity to ‘surrender' when they have a bad hand. Used at the right times, this option puts more money in players’ bank. When they have a good hand, however, it is only natural to want to split as often as possible. While many casinos restrict players to 1 or 2 splits, Red Lounge blackjack allows players to split up to 3 times.

With the Multi-Hand Blackjack, you can double on any two cards, thus increasing the opportunity to increase your winnings when you have a good hand. The Red Lounge Online Casino also allows players to double their bet after splitting, thereby offering a chance to win more when used at the right occasion.

The full dealer peek is a feature which increases players' chances of winning. The dealer draws a second face-down card at the outset of the game and checks if she has blackjack. If so, the game ends.

Another unique game available at the Red Lounge Casino is the Asian Blackjack. It is an internet blackjack game available only at Red Lounge Casino and designed especially for the casino’s Asian clientele. Asian Blackjack features the extremely popular rules found at many Asian casinos, particularly those in the Philippines, but it can be preferred by other players willing to try something new and exciting.

Among the features of Asian Blackjack is the option to surrender half of the bet, provided dealer does not have an Ace showing, before a third card is dealt to any hand. The Asian Blackjack uses six 52-card decks.

These games are only a couple of the large number of internet blackjack games available at the Red Lounge Casino, all of which come with great graphics and extremely generous payouts to make you wonder what pastime you’ve had before their blackjack.
