Blackjack, along with video poker, is one of the only casino games where your
decisions actually have an effect on your chances of winning. No other casino
game offers this level of strategic thought, and in fact, a skilled blackjack player
can actually tilt the odds in his favor. Even if you're only a partially skilled player,
knowing basic strategy only, you can reduce the house edge to a low 0.5%. This
makes blackjack one of the best bets in the casino, even if you don't count
cards. And learning the correct strategies isn't hard either.
Blackjack can be played with one to eight ordinary decks of cards. Cards of rank
2 through 10 are scored according to their face value. All face cards are 10
points. Aces are semi-wild and can be worth either 1 or 11 points. The highest
hand in blackjack is an ace and any 10-point card and is called a blackjack. A
winning blackjack pays 3:2. If both player and dealer have a blackjack the bet is
a push. Aside from a blackjack, a winning hand pays even money. The player
wins if his hand has more points than the dealer, without going over 21. Thus, a
21-point hand is the highest and is why the game is sometimes called 21. If
either the player or dealer go over 21 it is called a break or bust and a busted
hand automatically loses. If both the player and the dealer bust the player loses,
where lies the house advantage. If the player and the dealer tie, the bet is a
A round of blackjack begins with each player placing a bet in the circle or logo
directly in front of him. Then the dealer will give each player and himself two
cards. Player cards are usually dealt face up. One dealer card is dealt face up
(the up card) and the other face down (the hole card). If the dealer has a ten or
an ace as the up card it is possible he has a blackjack, in which case all player
hands will lose except those with another blackjack. In the U.S. the dealer will
check for blackjack immediately, if one is possible, and will collect all losing bets
immediately if he does have a blackjack.

Blackjack is a popular American casino game, now found throughout the world. It
is a banking game in which the aim of the player is to achieve a hand whose
points total nearer to 21 than the banker's hand, but without exceeding 21.
Blackjack is played with an international 52-card deck without jokers. Casinos
normally use several decks mixed together (called a shoe), both in order to
speed up the game (with more cards in play you don't have to reshuffle after
every single hand) and to make card counting more difficult (card counting is a
technique used to gain an advantage over the casino by keeping track of the
proportions of different value cards remaining in play.)
The number of decks differs from casino to casino, but there can be anything
from two to eight decks in the shoe. The re-shuffling frequency also differs from
casino to casino, and of course depends on the number of decks used.
Frequent re-shuffling is another way to diminish the value of card counting.
In casinos, blackjack is played on a specially designed table. There is a
permanent dealer employed by the casino, and room for up to eight
simultaneous players, playing against the dealer. Each player has a designated
playing area in front of him where cards are placed and bets are made.
The betting limits should be clearly posted on a sign on the blackjack table.
Normally, some of the most important rules, such as "Blackjack pays 3 to 2" and
"Dealer must draw on 16 and stand on all 17's" are printed on the table.
To play blackjack you need chips to bet with, and you typically buy your chips
directly from the dealer. When there is a break in the action, you simply put cash
on the table and the dealer will change it for an equal value of playing chips.
