The Classic Blackjack offering in Microgaming's Gold Series is designed to be simple to play yet still exciting. This is a great option for anyone who wants to learn how to play blackjack since much of the atmosphere, including the speed of gameplay, is completely customizable. This is the game in the Gold Series that offers the least in the way of frills, but the graphics and sounds are certainly not lacking. In fact, since the game can also be paid for free, it is highly recommended to new players simply because it is so easy to play. Of course, the objective of the game of blackjack is to beat the dealer with a hand valued at 21 or as close to 21 as possible without going over. The highest payouts come when the player can complete a two-card blackjack, also known as a 'natural'.

The dealer is always required to hit on any 16 and must also stand on all 17s -- even the soft 17 -- which is not typically standard in other classic blackjack games. However, classic blackjack rules still apply to other aspects of the game. Players can only split pairs, and doubling down is only allowed with the two-card hand total is between nine and 11. Players are not allowed to double down after a split, and there is no surrender. Insurance is available in this variation of the game, but it can only be taken if the dealer's up-card is an Ace. With a bet spread of between $1 and $200, this is truly a game that can fit almost anyone's budget and it can also be played for free for those who just want to practice or have some fun.
