Blackjack Rules

Blackjack is believed to attract more and more people nowadays. Indeed, it turns out to be an integral part of gambling industry. Actually, it is due to the fact that it does not take much effort to learn to play this game, as it has rather simple rules. Another considerable advantage of this game is that a player can decrease the house edge.

It should be said that learning rules of blackjack is really as easy as breathing. Similar to a poker, it is played with a pack of 52 cards. In spite of that, in many casinos this game is played with more than one deck.

As far as the objective of the game is concerned, a player should obtain more points than the dealer and do not get more than 21 points. Remember, that your aim is to beat the dealer, but not to get 21 points!

There are some rules of blackjack, which can help you to win this game.

  • Before starting to play this game you should know the value of the cards. The face cards are counted as 10 (for instance, Jack of hearts = 10), all the number cards are counted according to the number they have (for example, Seven of diamonds = 7). It should be mentioned that suit is of no importance in this game. As for the Ace, it can be counted either as 11 or as 1.
  • Another basic rule of blackjack is that you have to beat the dealer, but it is important that you don't exceed 21 points, because in this case, you will lose automatically. It is called a bust. If it happens that you have the same quantity of points as the dealer, it is a tie. In this case, the dealer and the player have to play one more game in order to indicate the winner.
  • It is extremely important to know that payout for all winnings is 1:1 (for instance, if you bet 100$ - you win 100$). A payout for a blackjack (when a player has 21 points) is 3:2. It means that if you bet 100$, you win 150$.

To play and win, one should know tips and odds of this game as well.
