Rules in Blackjack
Blackjack is a very popular card game whose origin is probably in 16th century France. Blackjack is also called “Twenty-one”. The goal of the game is to achieve a higher total number than the bank without exceeding a total of 21.
Players place their bets in the middle of the box for their place at the gaming table. Each player initially receives two open cards from the dealer. The dealer himself also gets 1 open card.
- King, Queen, Jack are 10 points each.
- Ace is 1 or 11 points.
- Cards 2 to 10 have their normal point value.
King, Queen, Jack are 10 points each.
Ace is 1 or 11 points.
If the first two cards of a player are an Ace and a card with a value of 10, this player has a Blackjack. The player receives 1 time his bet, unless the bank also has a Blackjack – in this case there is a ‘push’ or ‘standoff’ (bet is neither paid nor paid).
All other winning hands are paid once (1 against 1).
A Blackjack beats a point total of ’21’. For example, an Ace and a card with the value of 10, beats a card hand with a 10, 5 and 6. Despite both hands having a total of 21 points, the Blackjack wins.
A player without Blackjack may request additional cards in the attempt to get as close to 21 as possible, without exceeding a total of 21.
A Player can at any time fit or request an extra card, provided that the point total is less than 21. If a point a total of 21 is exceeded, the player loses the game and his bet (‘bust’).
- Dealer buys at 16 and stops at 17 points
- The same player loses 1 point more than the dealer except for 21 or black jack
- Black Jack paid twice if of the same color, other black jack combinations 1x
- Double only with the first 2 cards at 9-10-11 points, after doubling the player gets 1 more card
- Split only 2 equal cards, after splitting doubles possible, after doubling the player gets 1 more card
- Aces can be split once, after splitting the player gets 1 card on each card, resciption of ace’s is not possible
