About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together many guides across the site.

Our Red Redemption 2 Blackjack locations guide explains where to find and play Blackjack on the map.

We’re keeping this page really simple and outlining where you can play Blackjack across Red Dead Redemption 2’s map. It’s either an activity you take part in for the love of the game, or just to get a challenge ticked off. Much of the trouble doesn’t actually lie in the act of playing Blackjack, but more in actually finding a table to play it on. Having such a vast map doesn’t make this easy.

So without further ado, here’s where you can sit down for a game of Blackjack in Red Dead Redemption 2:

  • Rhodes: In the Saloon at the south end of town. Head in, go up the stairs and you’ll spot three gentlemen ready for a game.
  • Blackwater: In the Saloon right in the centre of town.
  • Van Horn Trading Post: In the Saloon right in the centre of town.
  • Camp: Sometimes minigames can show up in your camp, so keep an eye out for it.

Do be aware that tables in Saloons haven’t always got spots free for you to jump into a game. Sometimes you’ll have to wait for your turn. If this is the case, head to nearest hotel and stay the night. Passing time usually frees up a spot.

This video by Maka91Productions is a great resource for tracking it down too, so make sure you give it a watch.

If you’re unfamiliar with how Blackjack works, here’s a very brief breakdown of the rules.

  • Your main goal is to earn a score as close to 21 as possible.
  • Players are dealt two cards and have four options: Hit, Stand, Double Down or Split.
  • Hit - Get another card.
  • Stand -End your turn without taking a card.
  • Double Down -If you have 2 cards, double the value of your bet and get 1 more card.
  • Split - If your first 2 cards have the same value, separate your cards into 2 hands. These will be played independently and will have an equal value to your first bet.
  • At the end of each turn, the dealer will reveal his hidden card, score his hand and then reveal everyone else's hidden cards. He hits if the score is less than 17. If it’s more than 17, the dealer stands. Score closer to 21 than the dealer and you’ll win.
  • The dealer’s also capable of going bust, which will grant you the win. If you tie with the dealer then the hand is a “push”. This means that all your chips are returned to you.
