The game Blackjack ( Blackjack ), also called 21, is one of the most popular games in casinos. Players play against the dealer and can have up to 7 players at one table. Casinos play with one or two inverted cards, or 4 to 8 cards in the horseshoe.

Basic rules

Each player plays against the dealer. The goal of Blackjack is to have a stronger hand than that of the dealer, with the value of your cards not exceeding 21 points. Each card has a value and the sum of the card values ​​computes the total value of the hand.

The card values ​​are as follows: Cards from 10 upwards (pop, lady, jack) have 10 points, the aces can wear either 1 or 11 points. There is no rule that determines when the ace is counted for 1 point and when for 11 points you are not required to specify what value you have chosen. Judge according to your hand. All other cards (2 – 10) carry the number of points equal to their number. Paints are not relevant to this game.

A hand with an ace is called a ‘soft total’ if it does not exceed 21 points in ace, also reported as 1 and 11 points. The player can download another card or use the lower value of the ace without burning. If you have to use one value or the other, then your hand is called ‘hard total’.

The game is played with eight decks of cards that are moved after each hand. 

Blackjack game

Once the bets have been made, the player, including the dealer, receives two cards. The dealer will show one of his cards, the other will remain face down to the end of the game. After the player has finished composing the hand, the dealer draws his own. Payments and bets are followed.

If your first two cards have a value of 21 points (eg Ace & 10), then you hit Blackjack.
