Play To Win With Blackjack!
Blackjack is an exciting card game of chance and skill, and we're huge fans here at Lady Luck® Vicksburg. We present a standard blackjack game where players try to reach a hand of 21 against the dealer without going over, or "busting."
Cards 2-10 keep their numerical value, face cards are worth ten points, and Ace can be one or eleven. Players can "hit" for another card or "stand" with the hand they hold. If you're a novice to this game, we're confident that you'll pick up on the rules quickly.
If you consider yourself a blackjack expert, we have a few tricks that you may not know to improve your game. After our crash course in blackjack, stop by Lady Luck Vicksburg to try your luck! We're happy to show you our live blackjack games and our special free bet blackjack game.
Five Blackjack Tricks to Improve Your Game:
1. Find your limits!
We want you to have fun playing blackjack, so pick a betting limit and stick to it! Experts suggest to play only a quarter of your total limit at a time so you'll know when to quit or head to another table if you lose.
2. Keep your environment comfortable.
You want a good experience with your dealer and other players, so stay cordial and polite. Try not to drink too much and feel free to tip your dealer a chip to show your appreciation for playing.
3. Learn how to split.
To "split" your hand occurs when you have two cards of the same value and can play both. Some tables may instruct you which cards you can split. Professional blackjack players say to always split 8s and Aces if it's allowed, and never split a 5!
4. Determine if you can double.
Some tables allow you to double your cards to get a closer total to 21. Doubling can be used when your hand equals nine, ten, or eleven. Take a good look at the dealer's cards first. Always double a total of ten or eleven unless the dealer has an Ace, and only double a total of nine if the dealer has 3, 4, 5 or 6.
5. Know the basic strategy of the game!
There are a few different types of blackjack, so know what you're getting into before choosing your game. A video blackjack game could help a beginner learn their strategies before playing live. Be sure to learn basic techniques and gameplay. Most importantly, have fun playing!

We like to make things exciting here at Lady Luck®, so we're offering a special free bet blackjack game for our visitors! Free bet blackjack is a different spin on the standard game except the dealer places a special lammer next to your original wager.
Players can split any two cards as long as they're not equal to ten. You can free double on a total of 9, 10, and 11 with your first two cards. Doubling is allowed after splitting. A special Push 22 rule states the player wins if the dealer busts with a total of 22. When you win the hand, you're paid as if you played a traditional split or double without betting any more.
