BLACKJACK

  1. Players and Dealer: Blackjack is typically a card game played with one or more decks. The game begins with players playing against a dealer.

    Objective: The aim of Blackjack is to get the total value of the cards in hand as close to 21 as possible without exceeding it. Players play against the dealer and try to get their hand value as close to 21 as possible.

    Card Values: The values of the cards are as follows:

    Ace: 1 or 11 2 to 10: The value indicated on the card Jack, Queen, King: Each worth 10 points.

    Game Phases:

    Each player and the dealer initially receive two cards. While the players' cards are face up, one of the dealer's cards is face up, and the other is face down.

    Players take turns to act and can draw as many cards as they want to improve their hand. Drawing a card is called "hit."

    Players can choose to "stand" when they believe their hand is strong enough, meaning they do not want to draw any more cards.

    When a player reaches exactly 21 (an Ace and a 10-value card), they have a "blackjack" and usually win with a higher payout.

    If a player's total value exceeds 21, they "bust" and automatically lose.

    After all players have completed their moves, the dealer begins to play their hand. Typically, the dealer draws cards until their hand's total value is 17 or higher, then stands.

    Once the dealer's hand is 17 or higher, the total value of the dealer's cards is compared to the players' hands, and winners are determined.

    Wins and Bets:

    Players win their bets if they beat the dealer.

    If a player gets a blackjack, they usually receive a payout at a ratio of 3:2.

    If a player and the dealer have hands of equal value, it's called a "push," and the player gets their bet back.

    If a player loses, their bet is lost.

    Insurance: If the dealer's face-up card is an Ace, players can purchase insurance. Insurance provides protection against the possibility of the dealer getting a blackjack. If the dealer gets a blackjack, insurance bets are usually paid at a ratio of 2:1.
