Play Blackjack Online at Conquer Casino Canada
The game of blackjack is arguably the most popular of all modern internet casino games and is played all over the world. In fact, with the exception of roulette, no other casino game has been the subject of movies and books quite like playing blackjack has been. With the age of the internet, blackjack has reached far more people around the globe than at any time in its long history. Today, more and more Canucks are playing blackjack online than they do in regular brick and mortar casinos. Why? Simply because it’s fast, easy and convenient to log in and play on your computer or mobile device.
However, finding top online blackjack Canada casinos is not as easy as you may think. This is because not all online casinos have your best interests at heart. They don’t have the payment options you prefer, they don’t offer great online blackjack gaming in CAD, and they won’t let you play blackjack online wherever and whenever you like, no matter where you live in Canada. This is what makes Conquer Casino different, because we know what Canucks need from a solid, dependable and safe online casino site. Conquer Casino is the home of Canadian blackjack online and is licensed and regulated through the UK Gambling Commission as well as the Malta Gaming Authority.
History of Blackjack
Blackjack is one of the oldest card games in the world, with its true origins lost in the mists of time. The game that we know today as blackjack can be traced to a similar card game called Ving et Un, or ’21’ which was popular throughout France and neighbouring countries in Europe during the 17th century.
Classified as a table game, it used a standard deck of playing cards and the object of the game was to attempt to achieve a total of 21 or as close to that number as possible and beat the dealer. Any number over 21 was counted as a loss and, if the dealer (the casino) got 21 or a total higher than yours, you lost as well. It wasn’t until the game was brought to the New World that the game got its new name of blackjack, based on a winning total of 21 made up of a black ace card and a black jack card.
How to play Blackjack
Playing blackjack online is easy and only takes a few minutes to learn the ropes if you are new to the game. Once you’ve signed up with Conquer Casino, you will be able to enjoy free blackjack games where you can practice the basic gameplay and even try out a blackjack strategy. When you feel ready, you can switch over to a real money version with just one click of your mouse.
Online blackjack Canada casino rules are the same as anywhere else, at least as far as standard blackjack is concerned. To start playing blackjack online, register a free account with Conquer Casino and, once completed, head over to our online blackjack Canada page. You can try all of our blackjack online casino games for free with the exception of our live dealer blackjack which can only be played for real money. To begin a game, click on deal to receive your first two cards. You can then decide what your next move should be based on which two cards you have been dealt.
Common blackjack moves at this point include:
- • Hitting: Asking the dealer for another card
- • Standing: Staying with your current hand
- • Splitting: Splitting two cards of the same value (eg 8’s) into two separate bets. You can then add a new bet to the new hand and receive two new cards (one for each bet)
The dealer will also draw two cards and in standard blackjack, will only display one of these cards. The other card remains face down and is called the hole card. Once all players have had an opportunity to play their hand, the dealer will then reveal his hole card, at which point you will either have won or lost (bust) the round.
Canadians love to play online blackjack because it has some of the lowest odds or house edge of any casino game. Standard blackjack odds are around 1.5% in a single deck blackjack game and around 2% when more decks are used. However, when players use basic strategy in blackjack, they can get the odds all the way down to around 0.5%, which is much lower than roulette odds with European roulette odds at around 2.0%, and American roulette odds at around 5.27%.
Basic strategy & card counting

Basic strategy, also known as basic blackjack strategy, is designed to help you to know what your next move should be, as described earlier. You will be able to know with far more confidence whether you should hit, stand or split based on what the virtual or live dealer in blackjack is showing.
