When a player is looking for a game to play online, he doesn't really want to get bogged down with complicated rules, the object after all is one of fun. Without a doubt Blackjack is a great place to start and American Blackjack rather than add more complicated rules for the player to learn, predominantly just has different features to enhance the players experience of this wonderfully speedy game!
As opposed to the conventional game where less card decks are used, in American Blackjack there are six decks in use and the cards are shuffled after each hand.
At the bottom of the table there are 4 buttons with the Double button giving the player the option to "Double Down." This is a great feature that can be used once his first two cards have been dealt.
By clicking the button, he now has the option to double his bet before he receives an additional card. It's important to note there is no additional card after that, it's straight over to the dealer to display his hand.
A good example of using the "Double Down" feature would be when dealt a six and a five making eleven, one more card could see him hit twenty one with his bet now doubling his winnings!
Taking Insurance is a feature offered the player to protect against Blackjack when the dealer's displayed card is an Ace. The net effect of this additional bet which is half the original bet is that should this indeed occur, the player will be paid out at odds of 2:1 and instead of losing he will break even, just like with a push.
