Blackjack ABC’s – Part One

The main concept of the game is to be assigned cards totaling up to 21. Each gambler is handed two cards. When a player is given a nine or less and an Ace they’ve been handed a soft hand. When the blackjack player receives no Ace cards it is referred to as a hard hand. Once the cards have been handed to every player at the blackjack table, including the dealer, each black jack player is provided the opportunity to make 1 of 6 actions:

Taking another card (Hit): When a blackjack player says "hit me" the dealer will deal him another card, if the addition of that card causes the total greater than twenty-one the gambler will have lost and be excluded from the game, if the card pushes the total to twenty one the player will be the winner and if the value of the hand has not yet achieved twenty one they are still in the game.

Keeping the hand you’ve been given: If a blackjack player is happy with the cards they will hold. Once this has happened the croupier will show his or her cards and the blackjack player who has accumulated twenty-one or the closet to twenty one will win.

Doubling Down: A black jack player might ask to double down which doubles the wager they have laid. As soon as you’ve taken this procedure you can only receive one additional card. The details of doubling down are often specified by the blackjack table or betting house game rules so before wagering make certain you are familiar with the house game rules. If you’re wagering at a web-based casino this is normally quite simple.
