Black Jack Basics – Part 1

The general concept of the game is to be handed cards adding up to twenty one. Each gambler is given 2 cards. When a gambler is given a nine or less and an Ace they’ve been handed a soft hand. When the black jack player receives no Ace it is called as a hard hand. As soon as the cards have been dealt every player at the blackjack table, which includes the dealer, every player is provided the opportunity to make 1 of 6 actions:

Taking another card (Hit): When a blackjack player announces hit me the croupier will deal them another card, if the addition of that card causes the total greater than 21 the gambler will have busted and be excluded from the game, if the card pushes the total to twenty one the blackjack player will be the winner and if the value of the hand hasn’t yet achieved twenty one they are still in the game.

Keeping the hand you’ve been dealt: If a black jack player is happy with the hand they will stay. As soon as this has happened the dealer will show their hand and the gambler who has accumulated twenty-one or the closet to 21 will acquire a win.

Doubling Down: A blackjack player might request to double down which doubles the wager they have laid. As soon as you’ve taken this action you can only receive one more card. The specifics of doubling down are usually out lined by the table or betting house game rules so prior to wagering make certain you’re at ease with the casino game rules. If you are playing at a net betting house this is usually very easy.
