Enjoy playing Blackjack against the dealer which is an elf while a penguin walks around serving drinks. This is a fun and funny game for beginners and advanced players alike. The objective of this game is to come extremely close to the magic figure 21 without actually going over (or ‘busting’) while at the same time beating the elf dealer’s hand.
A bet must be placed to start the game. To place a bet for each hand, simply click on the dollar amount chip at the bottom middle of the playing screen and your chip will automatically be placed upon the table. When you are satisfied with your betting amount, click on ‘Deal’ to get your cards. You will be able to see both of your cards as well as how much they total; however, you will only see one of the elf dealer’s cards so be prepared to use strategy when choosing if to hit or stay.
At the beginning of the game you are given a choice as to how many decks of cards you want to play with. Whichever deck amount you choose, you will notice that it will tell you what the dealer has to hit and stand on as each deck amount is different. For example, if you choose to play with four decks then the dealer has to stay on 17 but has to hit on anything below 17.
A great little trick in this game is that you can use ‘Card ESP’ to get an idea of what the dealer may have for the card that is not revealed. If you use Card ESP it will give you three different options and one of them will be what the dealer has unrevealed.
There are a lot of other options with Flash Elf Blackjack as well; however, for some of these you must become a paying member. Card ESP is available for free members, so explore and test your strategy against the elf.
