The object of the blackjack game is to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over 21. Face cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are worth 10 points. Aces are worth 1 or 11, whichever is preferable. Other cards are represented by their number.
If player and the House tie, it is a push and no one wins. Ace and 10 (Blackjack) on the first two cards dealt is an automatic player win at 1.5 to 1, unless the house ties. A player may stand at any time.
Black Jack Rules
The object of Blackjack is very simple: to achieve a total that is greater than that of the dealer, and which does not exceed 21.
Even if other players are present at the table, the dealer is your only opponent in the game.
There are relatively few decisions to make when playing Blackjack.
You must consider your cards and your dealer’s card and remember, if you go over 21, you “bust”, and if you “bust” you lose.
Play progresses as follows:
1. A card is dealt, face up, to each player in turn and then one to the dealer. The dealer’s card is face down and called the “hole” card.
2. A second card is then dealt, again face up, to each player.
3. Starting from the player to the left of the dealer, each player decides whether to draw further cards.
4. After all players have completed their hands, the Dealer proceeds to draw cards to complete the Dealer’s hand.
You win if:
* Your total is higher than the Dealer’s total
* The Dealer goes over 21 or “busts” (provided you have not previously busted yourself).
If your total is the same as the Dealer’s total it is a “stand-off” and you neither win nor lose.
If you go over 21, or the Dealer’s total is greater, you lose.
The Values of the Cards
Cards in Blackjack are assigned the following point valies:
* Picture Cards (Jack, Queen and King) each count as 10 points.
* An Ace counts as 1 point or 11 points, whichever is better for owner of the hand.
* All other cards have their numerical face value. Jokers are not used when playing Blackjack
