Blackjack is a popular American casino game, now found throughout the world. It is a banking game in which the aim of the player is to achieve a hand whose points total nearer to 21 than the banker's hand, but without exceeding 21.
After the player has selected the bet, dealer distributes first two cards. Player decides whether to HIT or STAND. If the player decides to take one more card and the total points are more than 21 then the player gets busted. The same condition holds for the dealer too. If both player and dealer decide to stand and their points are less than 21, the one whose point is closer to 21 wins.
In the case of a draw, placed bet is given back. In the case of player's first two card total point is exactly 21 then player wins by BlackJack unless dealer's point is less than 21. In cases when both player and dealer make Blackjack than placed bet is given back. If the player wins the game he gets twice coins as its initial bet.
If you hit, you take another card or cards in hopes of getting closer to 21. If the player's total exceeds 21 after hitting, the player is said to "bust" and loses the bet.
If you stand, you elect to draw no more cards in hopes that the current total will beat the dealer.
The Dealer's Turn
If the dealer has a natural 21 (blackjack) with his two cards, he won't take any more cards. The dealer must hit if the value of the hand is lower than 17, otherwise the dealer will stand. Whether or not the dealer must hit on a soft 17 differs from casino to casino. There might even be blackjack tables with different rules within the same casino.
Kings, queens, and jacks are each worth 10, and aces may be used as either 1 or 11. The object for the player is to draw cards totaling closer to 21, without going over, than the deale's cards.
