Blackjack

Blackjack is one of the most popular card games over the world. The goal of the game is to get a card point total greater than the dealer, without going over 21.

The Game

Eight standard 52 card decks are used in the game. The cards are shuffled prior to each new round.


How to Play

Before receiving any cards the players must place their bets. Minimum bet is 1, maximum - 1000. To start a hand, click “Deal”. Then the players are dealt two cards face down. The dealer gets one face up, one face down.

Ace is worth 1 or 11. Face cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are worth 10 points. Other cards are represented by their number.
The values of the cards are as follows:

  • A card from 2 to 10 has its face value
  • A jack, queen, or king has a value of 10
  • An ace may have a value of either 1 or 11.

Due to the values of dealt cards you may stop playing or continue. You need to get a higher total than the dealer’s hand by getting as close as you can to 21 without going over 21.

To take a card, click “Hit”.
To stop, click “Stand”.

Once you have received the cards, the dealer starts to deal the cards to himself. The dealer must take cards if he has less than 17 points, and must stop at 17 or higher. If the total value of your hand exceeds the dealer’s one, but do not going over 21, you win.

Black Jack is counted at a ratio 3 to 2. Blackjack is a combination of two cards - a 10 or a face and an Ace. If the dealer’s face up card is neither 10 nor Ace, you get winning immediately.

All other combinations are counted at a ration 1 to 1.

If you get more than 21 or the dealer’s hand is higher than your, you lose.

If both you and the dealer get the same number of points, no one wins - the hand is a "push" and you get your bet back.

Double

If you have only two cards and their total is less than 21, you may double your bet (click “Double”) and receive just one card, and dealer proceed the game (in spite of the card’s value you have received).

You may double after splitting except for splitting two aces.

Split

If you have two first cards of the same value (for example, two tens, two fours, etc) you may split them into two hands. In this case you must double you initial bet. Having split the cards, the dealer deals the additional cards for each hand. First, you take the cards for one hand, then for another.

If a player split two aces, he receives only one additional card for each hand. If the second card is 10 points value, this is not considered as Black Jack, but just 21 points. If a player receives the cards of the same value again, he can not split them once more. You may split tree times per round (it means up to 4 hands).

Insurance

If the dealer’s opened card is ace, you can make an insurance bet against Black Jack which is equal a half of the starting bet. If the dealer has Blackjack, the insurance is paid 2 to 1. If the dealer does not have Black Jack, you lose the insurance.
