Playing blackjack is one of the most popular ways to gamble. It combines luck with knowledge of the game and awareness. The rules are relatively simple but knowing them does not mean that you are going to win.
Rundown of the Rules of Playing Blackjack
Playing blackjack is a relatively simple concept. Each player, including the dealer is dealt two cards. The cards might be up or down for the players but the dealer will always have one card showing and one down.
The object is to get as 21 or as close to 21 as you can. If you go over, you bust and automatically win. If you are dealt a card with a value of ten and an ace, you have blackjack and win three to two odds automatically. You are trying to get a higher hand than the dealer without busting.
The dealer must hit on soft seventeen and below. You don't ever have to hit. If you are in and the dealer busts, you win the hand. There are many strategies to the game, but the rules are not that extenuating.
