Blackjack is the most well-known game in the casino and is played around the world. It remains one of the most popular table games in any casino.
Everyone at the table plays against the dealer. When dealt 2 cards of the same value, players may split the pair to become separate hands and receive additional cards on each hand. The objective of the game is to draw cards with a total closer to 21 than the dealer’s total – without going over 21.
Picture cards (Jack, Queen, King) each count as 10. An Ace can count as 1 or 11. All number cards have their face value.
All cards in Blackjack are dealt face up so that you can see the point value of the Players’ and Dealer’s hands. A first card is dealt to each of the Players, and then finally to the Dealer. A second card is then dealt to the Players only. The Dealer will call out the value of all hands.
