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.
You are dealt two cards, while the dealer takes one card.
The cards are dealt face-up so you can see your point value. Blackjack is played with 3, 4, 6 or 8 decks of cards.
Picture cards (Jack, Queen and King) count as 10, Aces count as 1 or 11, whichever is to your advantage e.g. Ace, 8, 10 = 19.
