Mobile Blackjack Apps and Casinos
Blackjack is the most popular casino banking game in the world and the mobile version of Blackjack has also become extremely popular in the last few years.
I even remember when my room mate at University downloaded a mobile Blackjack game to his Android phone and became practically addicted to it. On this page, I’ve listed the best blackjack apps for the iPhone/Android and iPad users, plus information about how to play and download blackjack games to your mobile.

How to Play Mobile Blackjack – Rules and FAQ
The rules for mobile Blackjack are exactly the same as you’d find at online casinos. In order to begin a game you need to choose the Blackjack game from the mobile casino lobby and choose your wager. The minimum wager for mobile Blackjack varies between different mobile casinos but I’ve found it usually starts at 5p per hand and increases up to £10 per hand.
The aim of Blackjack is to get a higher hand than the dealer but not bust over 21. Blackjack uses a full deck of 52 cards. Each card in Blackjack is worth its face value and J-K is worth the same as 10 (Ace can be worth 1 or 11 at any time). Once you choose your wager amount, the game begins and one card is dealt face up to the dealer, one card face down to the dealer and then two cards dealt face up to the players.
If you get higher than the dealer than you get paid 1:1 on your initial wager or if you get Blackjack (Ace plus any card with the value of 10) then you get paid 3:2. If the both you and the dealer get Blackjack then it’s a “PUSH” and your money is returned. If the dealer gets higher than you or if you BUST (go over 21) then you lose your money.
Rules and Variations in Mobile Blackjack
Once the game begins in Blackjack you have two main choices, either HIT or STAY. Hitting allows you to see an extra card with the aim of going as close to 21 without going over it. Stay finishes off your hand (no more cards dealt to you) and then the dealer turns over his face down card to see his hand. The dealer will keep hitting until he gets to 17 and will stand on anything over this.
Other bets in mobile Blackjack include Split, Insurance and Double Down.
Split: When you’re dealt two cards of the same value in your first hand then you can choose to split. This requires you to double your initial wager and separates the cards to start two new hands. The game is played as if you have two different hands from then on and you will get paid individually per hand.
Insurance: When the dealer’s face-up card is an Ace than mobile casinos allow you to take Insurance. Insurance pays 2:1 and is given to you if the Dealer makes Blackjack (there is roughly a 30% probability of this happening which is why a lot of players take it). Normally the maximum you can bet on insurance is 50% of your initial wager. For example, if you originally wagered £1 and took 50p insurance then you’d make your money back if the dealer received Blackjack or lose 50p if the dealer didn’t hit Blackjack.
Double Down: When you have a 9, 10 or 11 as your first hand then you can “double down” when playing mobile Blackjack. This means that you double your initial wager and in return you are only allowed to see one more card. You might Double Down when you have a 10 for example because there is a very good chance that you will beat the dealer with your next card (e.g. anything of 7 or above on your next hand is likely to win, while J, Q, K or A will give you 21).
