Blackjack Casino Games
Want to know everything about Blackjack Casino Games? Here we go: In Blackjack, the object is to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over 21. Face Cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are worth 10 points. Aces are worth 1 or 11. Other cards are represented by their number. If you have more points than the House (without going over 21), you win. If the House has more points than you (without going over 21), the House wins. If you and the House tie, it is a push and no one wins. If you are dealt an Ace and 10 (Blackjack) on the first two cards, you automatically win at a rate of 1.5 to 1, unless the house ties. After the Player is dealt his or her first two cards, the Player may stand i.e. if you believe that your two cards can beat the dealer, you can stand. No more cards will be dealt to you. Otherwise, you can hit i.e. if you believe that you need more points to beat the dealer, you can hit. The dealer will deal you an additional card.
In the Blackjack Casino Games, you can also split i.e. if you are dealt two cards of the same value (8-8, A-A, 10-K, etc.), you may choose to split the cards into two separate hands. An additional wager equal to your original wager will be placed next to the additional hand. The dealer will deal you a second card to the first of the split hands. This hand will be played out, with all the normal options available (surrender, double down, etc.). When you have finished playing the first hand, the other split hand will then be dealt a second card and played out as usual. A split-hand Blackjack will pay off at 1:1 instead of 3:2. You have also got double down option. If you feel that your chances of winning a hand are exceptionally good, you can choose to double the amount of your original wager. You will be dealt exactly one additional card and play will pass to the dealer.
The twists and turns of Blackjack Casino Games do not end here. If you feel that your chances of winning the hand are not good, you will have the option to surrender the hand. If you choose to surrender, you will automatically lose half of your original wager; the other half will be returned to you. Play of the hand will cease, and the deck will be reshuffled. However, if the dealer was dealt a Blackjack, the surrender option will not be available. Whenever the dealer's up card is an ace, the insurance option will be available. When you buy insurance, you are insuring yourself against the possibility that the dealer has a blackjack. Insurance is an additional wager equal to half of your original bet. If the dealer has a Blackjack, the insurance will pay off at 2:1. Your original bet will be lost, unless you also have a Blackjack, in which case the hand will push. If the dealer does not have a Blackjack, you will lose the insurance wager and the hand will be played out as usual.
