Casino Games – Black Jack

[ English ]

Whether you are new to casino gaming or a betting house veteran, blackjack is 1 of the easiest and most exciting games casinos have to provide. The goal in twenty-one is to best the dealer by getting a hand as near to twenty one as as you can while not exceeding 21. To play vingt-et-un, you need only a basic understanding of the rules and a eagerness to have fun.

So how do you achieve 21? In black jack, the cards have values. Numbered cards two up to 10 are valued at their printed value, while every face cards (King, Queen and Jack) are valued at ten points. The ace card is a unique card in chemin de fer: you deduce whether it is worth 1 or eleven points. Since casino gamblers are handed two cards to start, if you are given an ace and a face card or 10,you have twenty-one-an immediate win, as long as the dealer doesn’t get twenty one at the same time. This two-card winning hand is called a "blackjack"; hence the name of the game!

Casino game rules for twenty-one are essentially similar at all casinos. After you get your initial two cards, your options are to take another card, stand, double down, split your hand into 2 hands with a second wager equal to the first, or sometimes bow out.

When you participate in chemin de fer at a betting house, be certain to understand which game table to select. Most casinos have colour coded black jack tables depending on the minimum wager the table accepts, typically 3 dollars, five dollars, twenty-five dollars or $100. In any betting house, it’s a certainty the $3 and five dollar tables will be filled, but they’re excellent for newbies at black jack because all of the cards are handed out face-up, unlike the 1up, one-down method at higher tables. So the next instanceor the initial instanceyou goto a betting house, be sure to stop at the blackjack tables and aim for twenty one!
