How to play Blackjack
The main objective of Blackjack is to get the closest to 21 using the cards you are dealt to beat the dealer. Each card has a numerical value, picture cards such as Jack, Queen, and King represent ten. Any ace card can be used as either one or eleven.
To get blackjack the player must be dealt an ace with a picture card which adds up to 21. The player will get paid out 1.5 X the bet eg: if the bet is $20 winnings will be $50. Players must not exceed twenty-one or they will bust and the dealer will win the bet. The dealer must draw cards until 16 and stick on 17 and above, if the player gets a higher score than the dealer he will win double the bet that was place. If the player and the dealer tie the bet will be pushed and the player will get his bet back.
Blackjack, picture card and ace, beats all hands including cards that add up to 21
- Every round all cards dealt are put back in the deck and re-shuffled
- Card dealt can only be split once
- Split aces will only have one card dealt
- Players can double after splitting
Players can split their cards if they have the same both have the same value. If the cards are split a second bet will be place the same as the first bet. The player will then have two hands to complete starting from right to left. Split aces can only draw one card when splitting hands. If a player gets Blackjack when splitting cards it is considered as 21 and it is not Blackjack.
After you have been dealt your two cards you can double the bet if you think you have an advantage on the dealer when choosing the double option you will be dealt a third card.
When the dealers face up card is an ace the player will have the option of insurance against the dealer getting Blackjack. If you choose to have insurance half the amount of your bet will be place on the table as a separate bet. If the dealer does not hit Blackjack the player will get 2 to 1 back on the insurance bet. If the dealer gets Blackjack the insurance bet will be lost.
