Blackjack modalities are the perfect excuse to never get bored. Despite the fact that all of them are quite similar, at Casino Barcelona you will always have different options to enjoy the one that best suits what you are looking for at any given time. Today we are going to know the main qualities of each modality to help you know everything about blackjack games, but, first of all, remember that the fundamental thing is to always play with the utmost responsibility.
Classic and American Blackjack
We are facing the two great modalities of blackjack with which you can find in the offer of Casino Barcelona. We are facing the two great blackjack modalities with which you can find in the Casino Barcelona Games offer.
American blackjack is one in which the dealer deals two cards at the beginning, one of them face down. With an ace, you will have the option to place a bet. When the players have decided whether to insure their play or not, the dealer checks to see if he has blackjack. If he has it, he will call and collect the bets from the rest, without them hitting, folding, checking or standing. In the event that the dealer has blackjack, he will continue the hand as normal.
In the case of classic blackjack , the dealer has only one card and the player can take the insurance bet. When everyone has made the decision to bet or not, the hand continues as normal. At the end of the moves, the dealer must add a card to his hand and check whether or not he has achieved blackjack.
Differences between classic and American blackjack
We are going to spend a little more time on these two types of blackjack because they are the most powerful. The main difference between them is in the distribution of cards and insurance options. In American , two cards are dealt to all players from the start and the dealer checks his cards before anyone else. By later checking others’, you’ll return the money to the players who got blackjack and win the rest.
In classic blackjack, on the other hand, the dealer only deals one card , which, if it were an ace, could be used by the rest of the players. After this situation, the hand will continue its usual course. In the event that one of the players has blackjack, he will collect it immediately. If it is the banker who has it, then we will have to wait for the end of the game in which he will pay the insurance bets and collect the rest of the money because those who had blackjack would have already collected before.
Another difference between these two modalities is that, in American, if a player has blackjack, but the dealer’s up card is an ace, he will be able to guarantee his benefits if he decides to reduce them. He will be able to collect his blackjack 1 to 1 instead of 3 to 2, something that is not possible in the classic.

More types of blackjack
European blackjack is one of the most often heard of. In this case, once again, the behavior of the dealer will be decisive. His work begins by dealing a single card, and then all the players make their moves. When finished, a second card is dealt and the hand is revealed, with no cards left face down.
Double Exposure blackjack is a curious case. In this modality, the banker receives two cards face up and this gives him a considerable advantage over the rest of the players. They should plan their strategy with this in mind, something that can end up being beneficial. In many ways, this is a classic blackjack mode, but with the difference of those two face up cards.
Another kind of modality derived from classic blackjack is surrender . In this case, it has a rule that differentiates it from the rest and that is that, if a player has a hand that they consider to be a loser, they can request to withdraw from the round and will only have to pay half the bet, something that will do at the start. In the event that the bank has blackjack right from the start, this withdrawal is no longer possible and the loss is automatic. The only exception to this is if the player also has blackjack, in which case there would be a tie that would not affect the stake at all.
For its part, another interesting type of blackjack would be known as Atlantic City. It proposes a face-to-face match between the dealer and the bank in which the one closest to 21 will win. This is something very common with the rest of the blackjack modalities, but there are differences. The first is that the player can double with any of the two cards he has in his hand and can split up to 3 times if he needs to, but not if he has aces (he can only do it once in this case).
At Casino Barcelona we do everything on our part so that you can live a truly powerful gaming experience. One of the blackjack games that we would like to recommend to you is Vegas Blackjack. Their keys are the same as you’d find in any Las Vegas casino, so stay tuned.
The dealer will stand on 17 and the player’s goal will be to get as close to 21 as possible without going over. In this mode you can make additional bets on 21 + 3 and Pairs. In both cases, the resolution will come from the hand of the first 3 cards at the start of the game and in this way:
- 21+3: When all 3 cards form a Flush, Straight, Three of a Kind, Straight Flush, or Three of a Kind, you win the side bet.
- Pairs: When two of the three cards form Pairs, you win. Depending on whether it is Common Pair, Red/Black, Flush or Perfect, you will earn more.
Another blackjack game that we would like to recommend is Cashback Blackjack. This option tries to help you overcome the moments in which your games do not go as well as you would like. Thanks to this, you will have the option to refund your bet and eliminate the risks you were running.
At some point in the game and depending on the possibilities that your hand has (both good and bad), the dealer will make you an offer for a specific amount that you can accept or not. Another good option offered by this modality is that it has a wide variety of side bets with which you will achieve a more dynamic and fun game. Also, why not say it, its potential prizes are higher than in other blackjack games, hence the great acceptance it has among our users.
