Progressive Online Blackjack Free Game
The game of progressive blackjack begins with a player making a side bet which then allows the players to take part in extra side bets that keep on rising for each bet. After the initial wagering, both the player as well as the dealer will be dealt with two cards each. The objective of this game is to have cards that have a total close to 21 or 21 itself but not more. All the cards from 2 to 10 have the indicated value while ace cards either have a value of 1 or 11 while the kings, jacks and queens all have the value 10. If a dealer happens to have a higher hand than the player then the dealer will win the game. If both the dealer and the player have the same total of card value then this will be referred to as push and here the player’s money will have to be returned. However, if the player has a total value which is more than 21 then this will be referred to as a busted hand and the player will lose regardless if the dealer busts.
