Tips for Playing Atlantic City Blackjack

Playing a Pair of Sevens - When a player has been dealt a pair of 7’s, this hand can often be a difficult one to know how to play. However, all you need to remember is that you should split this hand should the dealer be holding a 2 to 7 valued card,or hit the hand if the dealer has any other card showing.

Doubling Down a Pair of Fives - When you are playing this Atlantic City Blackjack game at a Microgaming software powered casino, should you have been dealt out, by the dealer, a pair of 5’s, then always double down unless the dealers card is a 10 or an Ace, in which case you should hit that pair of fives.

Late Surrender - The aim of the Late Surrender option, is of course to get you out of the game when you stand very little chance of winning. This move should only be made however, when you have a hard 16 and the dealer has a 9, 10 or an Ace showing, or when the dealer is showing a 10 and you have a hard 15.
