Blackjack

Derived from the French card game Vingt et un (twenty one)
Blackjack is today’s most popular casino card game.

When Twenty-One was originally introduced to the United States, if the player’s hand consisted of an Ace of Spades and a Jack of Spades, it was called a “blackjack”, which paid different odds compared to the modern version of the game, and the name stuck. In the version of the game we play today, a blackjack refers to any hand of an ace plus a ten or face card, regardless of suit or colour.

The Aim of the Game

The aim of Blackjack is to beat the dealer by drawing cards with a value as close to 21 as possible but without going past it.
If your hand is better than the dealer’s you win; if it adds up to more than 21, you go “bust” and automatically forfeit your bet.

The Table

The Blackjack table seats up to seven players. The layout has seven “betting areas” where bets must be placed before the cards are dealt.

The Deal

One card is dealt face up and clockwise to each of the players – including the dealer – followed by a second card, also face up, to each of the players, but not to the dealer.

The Play

Once you have been dealt your two cards, you have a choice of what to do next: Stand, by telling the dealer not to give you any more cards, normally by saying, “stand” or Draw.

Blackjack
Insurance

If the dealer’s first card is an Ace, you can insure your bet against the dealer getting a Blackjack by placing an insurance bet (up to half the value of your initial bet) on the table’s insurance line after your second card is dealt, but before the dealer draws any more cards. If the dealer draws a Blackjack, your box bet will lose, but your insurance bet will be paid at 2 to 1. However, if the dealer does not draw a 10 or a picture card, you lose your insurance bet.
