Blackjack Rules

 

In Blackjack, the object of the game is to beat the dealer by having a hand that totals 21 (without going over) or is closer to 21 than the dealer's hand.

Player and dealer are dealt two cards each. Both players’ cards are dealt face up. The dealer's first card is dealt face down, the second card face up.

Player may take an additional card or stop. Player not allowed taking additional card if he already has 21.

Once all players have acted the dealer will turn over their face down card. If their hand is valued below 17 they must deal another card. They continue to take cards until their hand is valued at 17 or higher.

When the dealer has a hand of between 17 and 21, he will pay all players with a hand closer to 21 than his own. If the player's hand is the same value as the dealer's, the hand is a push or a tie, and the player keeps his stake. If the dealer’s hand busts, all remaining players will be paid.

Card Values

 

Aces can be used as either 1 or 11. Any hand that includes an ace has two values… a soft value and a hard value. I.e. if the hand is an ace-8, the hard value is 9, the soft value is 19. This hand would be able to play as a 9 or 19.

The King, Queen, Jack and Ten are 10 points each.

All other cards are worth their face values.

Double – You wish to double the amount you have bet on your hand and receive one further card only.

Split – This option is only available if your first 2 cards are of the same value. By choosing this option you will double your bet and receive two more cards. This effectively gives you 2 hands to play. Please note if you split Aces you are only dealt one more card to each hand and cannot hit for extra cards. 21 hit after splitting is not blackjack as the cards are not the first 2 dealt, and therefore only pays 1 to 1.

Insurance – - If the dealers face up card is an ace all players are offered an insurance bet. This bet is half the player's stake. In the event that the dealer has blackjack this bet will pay at 2 to 1. If the dealer does not have blackjack the bet is lost and the hands play as normal.
