In Blackjack, player’s goal is to have a hand with points value closer to 21 points than the Dealer’s without exceeding 21 or by the Dealer’s hand going over 21 (“bust”).
6 decks are used, 52 cards each. Cards are shuffled after each round. The value of a hand is the sum of points of each card in the hand. In Blackjack, card values are as follows:
|Select bet size||Click on the selected value chip at the bottom of the table|
|Place your bet||Clicking on betting field will place chip of selected value there|
|Increase your bet||Every click on the betting field adds one chip of the selected value existing bet|
|Remove your bet||Choose the X-chip option and CLICK on the betting field|
|Play again||Click NEW GAME after the game is completed to place bets differently|
|Repeat your bet||Click REBET to place the same amount and value of bets as in the previous round|
Min/Max table displays minimum and maximum amount that can be placed on each betting field.
Player can bet on up to three hands, placing chips on the left, central and right betting boxes. After placing bets, click DEAL to start dealing cards. Both the Player and the Dealer are dealt two cards. Player’s cards are dealt face up, Dealer’s – the first card face down, the second one – face up. In case of multiple bets, the same number of hands will be dealt and each hand will be played separately against the Dealer.
You have one of the options listed once you and the dealer are dealt cards:
Dealer check. Whenever Dealer’s up card is Ace, face card or 10, Dealer checks for Blackjack. If Dealer’s hand is indeed a Blackjack, all player’s hand lose except for player’s Blackjack which is “push”.
Note: In case of splitting a pair of Aces, only one card is drawn to each Ace. The option Hit is not available. Also, if you draw a ten-valued card on one of the split Aces, your hand is not considered a Blackjack, but treated as regular 21. The same is true if Ace is drawn to split 10 value cared.
The Dealer starts playing his hand once all the player’s hands are completed. The Dealer stands on 17 including the cases where Ace has to be counted as 11 to make the total value of 17.
After Player is done drawing cards and after the Dealer completes his hand, the player’s and the Dealer’s hands are compared. Dealer pays the Player’s hands with higher sum of card values than his and takes bets on hands with sum of card values lower than his. If Dealer’s hand and player’s hand have equal sum it is a “push”. If dealer busts, he pays all the player’s hands. If there is Blackjack on any side such hand beats any hand including a regular 21, with the exception of Blackjack on competing side resulting in a “push”.
