The rules of the game BLACKJACK (Blackjack 21).
First, the player receives two cards open, the sum of the points of which allows you to decide whether he needs additional cards or not. The goal of the game is to score 21 points or an amount close to this. If a player scores a total of points in excess of 21, then his bet loses. If the amount of points on the dealers cards is more than 21, then all bets remaining in the game win.
Players who score more than the dealer points win, their bets are paid 1: 1.
Players who score less than the dealer lose.
If the players total is equal to the dealers total, then a draw or Stay is declared: the players bet does not win or lose.
The dealer collects the cards last, while he is obliged to take the card if he has 16 points or less, and stop if the sum of points is 17 or more. Aces count as 1 or 11, pictures (jacks, ladies and kings) - all 10 points each, the rest of the cards correspond to their face value.
This is a combination on the first two cards from the deal, giving a total of 21 points (ace and ten or ace and picture). In this case, the players bets are paid 3: 2, if the dealer does not have the same combination. Blackjack wins any other combination of cards, including combinations with an amount equal to 21 points.
After the first two cards are dealt, the player may refuse to continue the game, losing half of the corresponding bets. This can be done before the third card, on which they want to make SURRENDER. A player cannot make SURRENDER if the dealer's first card is an ace.
If the first two cards of a player are of the same denomination, that is, they have the same value for points, then they can be divided. At the same time, the player makes an additional bet on this box, equal to the original one, and draws cards for each card separately. All pairs of identical cards can be divided no more than three times. The exception is aces. Splitting aces is allowed twice, and when splitting a player receives only one card for each of the aces. The combination of Ace and Ten (picture), obtained after the separation, is considered as 21 and is not a Blackjack combination.
After the player has received the first two cards, regardless of the number of points, he can double his bet, while receiving only one card. Doubling after splitting cards is allowed. If the player has 9, 10 and 11 points, then the dealer will always offer to double the players bid.
If the dealers first card is an ace, the player can make an additional bet, but not more than half of the amount of the initial bets and not less than half of the minimum table, placing it on the field marked Insurance. This bet wins if the dealer drops Blackjack and is paid 2: 1, in all other cases it loses.
The difference between the Russian version of the game "Point" and "BlackJack 21".
A point, also called twenty-one point, or just twenty-one - the Russian version of the card game, known in many countries.
This game is similar to the blackjack version of the game, which can be played with a standard Russian deck (36 cards) instead of a full standard deck (54 cards), since at that time a deck of 36 cards was common, and decks of 52 and 54 cards were rare.
Unlike blackjack, the values of the cards J (jack), Q (queen) and K (king) are not 10, but 1, 2 and 3, respectively, which partially compensates for the absence of cards from two to five. But, since the number of cards with a value of 10 is significantly less than in blackjack, the game balance is very different. Ace 11. King 3. Queen 2. Jack 1.
