Blackjack is the most popular casino card game in the world. The name Blackjack arose when an American casino decided to popularise the game by paying a bonus to any player holding the ace of spades and either the jack of clubs or jack of spades. The object of the game is simple – obtain a total card count higher than that of the dealer without exceeding 21.

Let’s Play!
Before receiving any cards, you must place a wager.

Select a chip value of either $1, $5, $10, $25, or $100.
Click the betting circle until the number of chips displayed equals the amount you wish to bet.
To reduce your bet amount, right-click the betting circle to remove chips. Your bet will be reduced by the amount of the currently selected chip.
Click Deal. You and the dealer will each be dealt two cards. Both of your cards will be face up, but only one of the dealer’s cards will be face up.
Review your cards.
To receive another card, click Hit.
If you are satisfied with your hand and wish to double your initial wager, click Double.
If you receive two cards of equal value and wish to split them into two new hands of one card each, click Split.
If you are satisfied with your hand and your wager, click Stand.

Blackjack uses a six deck shoe.

The face cards – jack, queen and king, all have a value of 10, aces count as either 1 or 11, and the remaining cards are worth their face value.

If your hand exceeds 21, you bust and automatically lose the hand. If you have the same card total as the dealer, from 17 and up, no one wins and you get your wager back in a push.

The dealer must stand on 17 and above and draw on 16 and below.

If the dealer’s face-up card is an ace, you will be asked if you wish to buy insurance.
