Blackjack requires the player to make many more decisions than most table games and as such it is important that players fully understand all the rules.
Blackjack is a hugely popular game and therefore has spawned countless variations and special rules sometimes exclusive to just a single casino. Below is a guide to the most common rules found in most online casinos. Note that online casinos usually have several variations of blackjack available for players and this guide relates mostly to European Blackjack (often just called Blackjack or Classic Blackjack), however the rules of the most common variations will also be briefly introduced.
The aim of blackjack is to get as close as possible to 21 points without exceeding 21. The points are the same as the numbers on the cards with picture cards (Jack, Queen, King) being worth 10 points each and the Ace counting as either 1 or 11, as desired by the player. If the player exceeds 21, they instantly lose (or bust), regardless of what the dealer gets. If the dealer exceeds 21, the player wins and their bet is returned along with their win (the same as the bet). If neither the dealer or the player exceed 21, whoever is closer to this number wins.
Blackjack enables multiple players to play in the same round against the dealer at the same time. Each player takes a turn to make their decisions consecutively. Furthermore, each player is usually allowed to play multiple hands during the same round. The total number of playable hands, both different players and the same player playing multiple hands, is limited, usually to a maximum of 6 or 8 places.
Interesting Fact: The name 'blackjack' is a result of bonus incentives paid out by casinos when the game was first introduced into US casinos. If a player's hand was made up of the ace of spades plus a black jack (clubs or spades) the player would receive a 10 to 1 bonus payout. This bonus was later removed but the blackjack name persevered.
In virtually all variations of blackjack the dealer does not have any decisions to make. The most common forms of blackjack require that the dealer hits up to and including 16 and sticks on 17 (both soft and hard). The dealer is not permitted to split or double-down or make any other decision or side bets available to the player.
