Online Blackjack in Australia

Whoever it was who invented blackjack, they did a fantastic job. We’ve been playing versions of this card game for over 400 years, everything from ventiuna in 17th-Century Castille to vignt-un in 18th-Century Britain and France. But now that we have this bonzer thing called the internet, online blackjack has taken Australia by storm.

If you’re among the millions who have already given the games here a try, I think you’ll agree that the Joe Fortune site has the best online blackjack in Australia – or anywhere else for that matter. It’s right here in the land of Oz with all the world’s top online casino games, and it’s great to see how popular blackjack has become, especially at our live blackjack tables.

Yes, that’s right: You can play live online blackjack for real money here at Joe Fortune. How awesome is that? Maybe you already know about our top-shelf table games like Classic Blackjack and Perfect Pairs, each one a corker. Or maybe this is your first time here. Either way, live blackjack on the internet is amazing. You can even use crypto to play here, which is still mind-blowing. Bitcoin blackjack, right on your phone, 24/7.

Thankfully, we have an epic team of helpers here that keep the site running like a top, and they’re reminding us that some people out there have yet to play online blackjack for real money in Australia – which is also mind blowing.

If you haven’t been given the drum yet, or maybe your blackjack game is a bit bog-standard, have no fear: Joe Fortune is here. We’ll walk you through the basic steps to lock down your seat at one of our blackjack tables, whether it’s a live game or one of our online classics.

We’ll tell you more about crypto casino gaming in a moment, but let’s look at these great games first.

What are the blackjack games you can play at Joe Fortune?

Our lineup of standard blackjack games includes the following:

  • Blackjack (the “New” version)
  • Classic Blackjack
  • Single Deck Blackjack
  • Classic Single Deck Blackjack
  • Double Deck Blackjack
  • European Blackjack
  • Perfect Pairs
  • Zappit Blackjack

For those of you who are new to the game, blackjack can be played with one or more 52-card decks. The standard game uses six, and the most popular game is the “New” blackjack, with its sleek, streamlined look and feel. People still love the Classic version, though, with the same layout you’ll find on the felt at a live bricks-and-mortar casino.

We also have both versions of Single Deck Blackjack on the menu, as well as the newer Double Deck Blackjack. The last three games on this list are special variants that will add a little spice to your blackjack mix. We’re personally big on Zappit Blackjack, because we get to bring out the laser guns and vaporize the hole cards any time we’re dealt a 15, 16 or 17.

Then you have the live blackjack games under the Live Casino tab. Choose your dealer and your preferred stakes; if you’re a beginner, you might want to try the Blackjack Early Payout games, which have a baked-in strategy guide that will tell you what the optimal play is. You can even tip your dealer for a job well done.

By the way, we’ve got a secret special blackjack game tucked away for you under the Table Games tab: Super 7 Blackjack, which lets you make side bets on whether you’re dealt a Seven to start the game. If your first card’s a Seven, the bet pays 3:1, and if you get dealt two Sevens, you’ll win up to 5000X your wager. Bog in!
