|Casino Games Rules And Strategy Lessons|
Blackjack in the casinos is normally played with eight regular decks, but you can also play this game with one deck. The cards that are 2 through 10 are all the face value. In other words the deuces are 2 points and the tens would equal 10 points. The ace is a little different in this game. With Blackjack that ace can be an eleven or a one depending on the type of hand it would make. The kings, queens, and jacks are also ten points. In blackjack your aim is to try and get a natural 21 or as close to 21 as you possibly can, without busting. You and the dealer cannot go over 21 or you will lose. In other words say the dealer has 17 and you have 19 that is a good place to be, but if you received another card of 3 point value you would bust and the dealer would win because he has 17. In this game like all card games the house has the advantage over you. The only other outcome in this game that you have is a tie. This is where the dealer and you have the same points in the hand. In this event you both move on, and you get your original bet back, with nothing extra.
To start the game you will have each person place a wager. This is called the ante bet and must be in place to show the dealer you would like cards. Then the dealer will go about distributing two cards to each player in a counter clockwise move. In other words the player to the left gets one card, then the next player, and this motion continues until the dealer has his second card. The dealer will give an up card in the first round, than the second card is the hole card or the card dealt face down. At this point you need to decide if you will stay in the game. If the dealer has a ten or an ace as the up card the dealer may have a blackjack. This is where you could surrender if that rule is allowed. You can also take insurance to bet on whether the dealer has the blackjack or not, so that you don't lose as much money. If the dealer has blackjack you will lose your bets. If you tie with the dealer then you get to keep the wager, but gain no winnings.
As we mentioned above if the dealer has an ace as the up card you can purchase insurance. The insurance allows you a payout of 2 to 1 if the dealer has blackjack. If the dealer doesn't have blackjack you will lose. If the player also has blackjack then even money can be dispersed. After the additional bets are made the dealer will check the card. If the blackjack is present payouts are made, but if not play will continue as normal.
When you deal with your hand there are several ways to try and get the win, so let's look at those options.
Once all players have their hands the player to the left will start the action until the dealer is left to display whether the house wins. The dealer doesn't have freewill, which means they are dependent on you the player. When the dealer has 17 or more they must stand. Below the 17 they must hit. If they have a soft 17 the dealer must also hit. If the dealer busts then any player that didn't bust wins.
