The Guide Of BlackJack

Blackjack is probably the single most popular table card game played at casinos today. The aim of the game is to beat the dealer by getting as close to 21 as possible without going over (known as busting).

Each player is initially dealt two cards face up and is given the option to “draw” or “hit” (ie be dealt an extra card) as long as the cards in his hand do not exceed 21. An ace can be played as 1 or 11, while a 10, Jack, Queen, and King are counted as ten. Cards 2-9 are played at their face value. If the player’s total exceeds 21, then he busts and loses his wager.

Usually, one of the two dealer cards is dealt face up while the other is dealt face down. The face down card is often known as the “hole card”. The dealer is the last “player” to add to his cards, which is an advantage to the house because if the player busts, he loses even if the dealer busts later. However the player has their own advantage, in that the dealer may never stand on a total less than 17, while the player may stand on any total they wish.

A winning hand pays the player 1:1 – i.e. your original bet is doubled and returned to you. A “push” or tie results in the player receiving their original bet back.

If the player is dealt a combination of an ace and a ten valued card (10-J-Q-K), this is called “blackjack” and is considered an automatic win, unless the dealer is also dealt a blackjack, in which case the hand is considered a “push” or tie. A winning blackjack hand pays 3:2 on your original bet (note that Casinos offering “6:5 blackjack” are generally ripping you off and should be avoided). A dealer blackjack beats any other player hand. One exception to the blackjack rule is that if you split Aces and are dealt a ten card it is not regarded as blackjack (see splitting below).
