hi there
I'm new at blackjack we where i live we don't have a huge choice of casinos or online casinos because only a few are licenced by the government.

My question is the online casino where I play only allows one card on split aces . Do I still always split aces ?
would appreciate if some one could give me an answer

The "one card only for split aces" rule is the norm, not the exception. Yes, you should always split aces even with that rule. One exception: If it's a game where the dealer doesn't take a hole card (or doesn't check it), AND you will lose all of your bets (and not just your initial one) to a dealer blackjack, then don't split (and hit instead) against a dealer Ace (this rule is commonly called "European No Hole Card" or ENHC for short, since it's the norm in European casinos).

I believe the ENHC exception that Kelly mentions is only when the dealer is showing an ace. But I could be wrong, it could be an ace or any 10
I invented a few casino games. Info: http://www.DaveMillerGaming.com/ Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁

Dealer Ace only for this hand; for doubling 11 and splitting 8s it applies against a dealer 10 too.
