How to Play A Game of Blackjack

Some Gamblers call the game of Blackjack twenty-one. Reason is that the main goal of the game is to beat the Blackjack dealer getting as close to 21 as possible. The game is played with 1, 2, 4, 6, or 8 decks of cards. Some Casino facilities are also using shuffling machines in the game.

In a multi-deck card game, the cards will be given out by the dealer in a shoe, which is a tray like box. During handheld games, the cards are given to the players face down and the Blackjack player will be allowed to handle their own cards. During a shoe game, the cards will be given to the players face up and the player will not be allowed to touch their cards.

The basic rules are the same for both games. The main objective of the game is to outwit the dealer. If the player's cards have a higher value compared to the cards that are in the dealer's position without exceeding 21 then the player wins. If your hand or the dealer exceeds the total number of 21 you will bust. If you bust in a game, you will automatically lose.

If the dealer busts and you do not, you win. The player must move first. If the player is the first one to bust, he will lose whether the dealer busts or not.

The suits in which the card belongs have no bearing in the game. Cards which have a value from 2 to 10 are counted on their value and not their suit. All of the face cards have a value of 10.

An ace card can have a value of 1 or 11. As an example a queen card and a 5 card has a value of fifteen. An ace card and a 5 card would have total of six or sixteen. A card hand that does not have an ace card is called a Hard Hand because it only possesses a single value. A card hand that has an ace card is called a Soft Hand because the value can change.

There is a separate place that is assigned for each of the player at the table. A player buys their chips from the Blackjack dealer or gets them from another table. The player then puts his wager in the betting place. Only the chips that are put in his betting circle is their wager. After all of the wagers are in place, play will begin.
