Blackjack is the most played card game in casinos around the world. You can play blackjack anywhere, even in online casinos.
Before the cards are dealt, the players must place their bets, respecting the limits of the table. Once this is done, the dealer deals the cards and each player receives two cards that are put on the table face up. The dealer also has two cards but one of them is face down.
The game is started first by the player to the left of the dealer. The options are as follows: he can ask for another card (Hit), split the two cards into two hands and ask for cards for both hands (Split), he can end his turn (Stand). When all players are ready, the dealer shows her second card. The one with 21 points or less wins and the one with more than 21 points loses.
If the score of the cards in the hand is less than 17, you can ask for another card and if you have 17 you must plant because the risk of exceeding 21 with another card is much higher.
Keep in mind that the Ace is counted as 1 point and 11 points according to the player’s desire to combine the cards in his hand for the optimal score of 21.
The objective of blackjack game is to have a score of 21 at the end of the game or to be closer to 21 than the dealer. If the dealer and the player are tied, then the bet is recovered.
The Blackjack Table
The blackjack table consists of several areas also called “boxes”. The first rectangular box in front of the player is intended for use. Each box has a maximum amount which is the table’s betting limit. This table limit must not be exceeded.
On top of the boxes the cards are put face up, if the player divides the cards, two hands are made. The dealer sits in front of the players and deals the cards from left to right, until at the end he is left with a face down card and a covered card. The shape of the table is always a semicircle or half-oval.
