BLACK JACK RULES

Blackjack is a popular American casino game, now found throughout the world. It is a banking game in which the aim of the player is to achieve a hand whose points total nearer to 21 than the banker’s hand, but without exceeding 21.
Players should bear in mind, though, that blackjack rules vary from casino to casino, and check for local variations before playing.
Equipment
Blackjack is played with 52-card deck without jokers. Casinos normally use several decks mixed together called a shoe, both in order to speed up the game, and to make card counting more difficult.

Betting & Winning
Each player at the blackjack table has a box to place bets in. There will always be a minimum bet and a maximum bet for the table. The max bet is normally ten to twenty times the min bet, meaning that a table with a £5 minimum would have a £50 – £100 maximum. Each player decides how much to bet on a hand before the deal.
Each hand will result in one of the following events for the player.
• Lose – the player’s bet is taken by the dealer.
• Win – the player wins as much as he bet. If you bet £10, you win £10 from the dealer.
• Blackjack – the player wins 1.5 times the bet. With a bet of £10, you keep your £10 and win a further £15 from the dealer.
• Push – the hand is a draw. The player keeps his bet, neither winning nor losing the money.

Game objective
Although many players play in a single round of blackjack, it’s fundamentally a two-player game. In blackjack, players don’t play against each other, and they don’t co-operate. The only competition is the dealer.
The aim of the game is to accumulate a higher points total than the dealer, but without going over 21. You compute your score by adding the values of your individual cards.
The cards 2 through 10 have their face value, J,Q,& K are worth 10 points each, and the Ace is worth either 1 or 11 points (players choice).
The deal & “blackjack”
At the start of a blackjack game, the players and dealer receive two cards. The player’s cards are dealt face up, while the dealer has one face down (called the hole card) and one face up.
The best possible blackjack hand is an opening deal of an ace with any 10 – point card. This is called “blackjack”, and the player holding this automatically wins unless the dealer also has a blackjack. If a player and the dealer each have blackjack, the result is a push for that player. If the dealer has a blackjack, all the players not holding a blackjack lose.
The player’s turn
The player can keep his hand as it is (stand) or take more cards from the deck (hit), one at a time, until either the player judges that the hand is strong enough to go up against the dealer’s hand and stands, or until it goes over 21, in which case the player immediately loses (busts).
The dealer’s turn
When all players have finished their actions, either decided to stand or busted, the dealer turns over his hidden hole card.
If the dealer has a 21 (Blackjack) with his two cards, he won’t take any more cards. All players lose, except players who also have a blackjack, in which case it is a push – the bet nis returned to the player.
If the dealer doesn’t have 21, he hits (takes more cards) or stands depending on the value of the hand. Contrary to the player, though, the dealer’s action is completely dictated by the rules. The dealer must hit if the value of the hand is lower than 17.
Showdown
If the dealer goes bust, all players who are left in the game win. Otherwise players with higher points totals than the dealer win, while players with lower totals than the dealer lose. For those with the same total as the dealer the result is a push: their stake is returned to them and they neither win nor lose.
Side Bets
Insurance
When the dealer’s face up card is an ace, each player gets the chance to bet on whether the dealer has blackjack or not. The insurance wager equals your original bet and is used to cancel out the likely loss of this bet. A winning insurance bet will be paid at odds of 2:1, and since you lose your original bet, you’ll break even on the hand.
Splitting
When you get two starting cards of the same face value, you have the option to spilt the hand in two. You place another bet of the same size as the original bet and play on with two hands. Note that you can spilt a king and a jack.
When you’ve decided to spilt a hand, the dealer immediately deals a second card to each hand. Now, if you’re dealt yet another pair some casinos allow you to split again , while others don’t.
If you spilt aces, you are not allowed to take any further cards( unless dealt another ace and spilt again. All hands resulting from splitting aces remain as two-card hands.
If the second card dealt to a spilt ace is a 10-point card you do not receive the blackjack bonus for this hand. It does however win against an ordinary 21 made hand. If the dealer also has a blackjack the result for this hand is a push as usual.
