Blackjack Rules

Blackjack is the most popular casino card game. Cards are counted at their face value. Kings, Queens and Jacks count as 10, Aces count as 1 or 11 at your option. Winning hands are paid at even money. If the first two cards you are dealt total 21 (any 10 valued card and an Ace), you have a Blackjack and the payoff is 2 to 1 on your original bet. You cannot lose with a Blackjack, but you could tie if the Dealer also has Blackjack. If you are dealt any combination other than Blackjack, you can either "stand"(take no more cards), or signal to the Dealer for a "hit"(draw additional cards). The signal for a "hit" by brushing your hand toward you behind your wager, while the signal for a "stand" is a horizontal wave behind your bet.

Your opponent in Blackjack is the Dealer, and in order to win, the total value of your cards must beat the total value of the Dealer's cards. So remember that whatever cards you get, their total value must be equal to or less than 21 AND be higher than what the total value of the Dealer's cards. A hand with a value over 21 is called a "bust" and is an automatic loser.

The Dealer must "hit", or accept additional cards, until the total value of their cards equals or exceeds 17; they must "stay on 17 or higher", and once the total vale of their cards exceeds 21, they also "bust" and automatically lose.

Helpful Hint: Remember that since the object of the game is to get a better hand than the Dealer's without going over 21, before making your decision to either "hit" or "stand", pay close attention to the Dealer's up card.
 
Blackjack Breakdown
Blackjack
Blackjack is when your first two cards have a total value of 21, and the payoff is 2 to 1 on your original bet.
TIES
All ties between a Player and the Dealer are called a "push"; no one wins or loses.
You may leave your bet for the next hand, increase it, or remove it.
PLAYER has a Blackjack and the DEALER has a Blackjack
This is considered a "push"; the Player does not win or lose.
Double Down
A Player may "double down" on any hand.
When "doubling down", the Player is allowed to increase their bet by any amount they want to, up to but not to exceed their original bet, and is then dealt only one additional card.
The optimum hands for "doubling down" are 9, 10 or 11.
Splitting
A Player may Split their hand if their two cards are of the same numerical value.
The Player then matches their original bet and plays their cards as if they were playing two separate hands.
You may "re-split" a pair up to three times; making up to four separate hands. You can take as many hits as you like on each hand.
Splitting Aces
If you split a pair of Aces, you will receive only one card on each of the hands, but if one of these cards is another Ace, you many re-split this as well. A 21 on "split Aces" is not considered a Blackjack and only pays even money if you win the hand.
Double Down After Split
A Player may "double down" after splitting their cards.
 
"Fun 21 Blackjack" Rules
"Fun 21 Blackjack" is a variation of regular Blackjack. The basic rules and objectives of the game are the same, but for added enjoyment, some additional options have been included to make the game more fun and exciting for the Players.
All Blackjack's are Paid Immediately
You win automatically if you have "21"!
Players' Blackjack ALWAYS beats a Dealer's Blackjack
Splitting
A Player may split any cards of equal value, including Aces, up to 4 times for a total of 5 hands. The Player matches their original bet and play their cards as separate hands. You may also "hit" and "double down" on all of these split hands.
Double Down
A Player may "double down" on any hand.
When "doubling down", the Player is allowed to increase their bet by any amount they want to, up to but not to exceed their original bet, and is then dealt only one additional card.
"Five Card Charlie"
When the fifth card dealt to a Player brings their total to a total of 21 or less, the Player automatically wins the hand (no matter what the Dealer's hand totals).
The payoff payoff for "Five Card Charlie" is 2 to 1 on your original bet.
