Blackjack is one of the most popular card games in the world, and it is the go-to casino game for millions of players. They are attracted to its simple rules and short play time. In casino games, players can quickly win or lose money and move on to the next hand, keeping up a winning streak or trying to turn around a loss. As simple as the basic game is, there are some clever strategies to obtaining an edge over the dealer or other players. And even if you know the rules, you might not be familiar with all the changes that have occurred over the years and the way the game has been modified to reach modern players.

How Blackjack Is Played

In blackjack, the goal of the game is to reach as close to 21 without going over, which is called busting. Hitting a value of 21 is fine, but with anything more than that and you automatically lose. Each card has its own value, with the number cards being worth their given number. The face cards (i.e. jacks, kings and queens) are each worth 10 points. The aces can vary in their value.Card Values in Blackjack They can be worth either 1 or 11. The value for the ace works in your favor. In most cases, they are worth 11, but if they would cause you to go over 21 points, then they are worth 1. A “blackjack” is achieved when you have a combination of cards that gives you 21 points exactly.
The first person to bust forfeits the game, which is why blackjack works in the favor of the casino. They always allow the player to go first, so there is a greater chance that the player will bust and lose their money.

As you play you have a few choices as to how you can proceed. The game doesn’t start until chips or bets have been placed and the cards have been dealt. The dealer and all the players each receive two cards face down. This is where your choice kicks in. Once you examine your cards and see what you have, you have the option to ask for more cards or to keep what you have. Requesting another card is done by saying “hit me” to the dealer. The dealer can continue to give you cards until you say “stand”. This means you want no more cards and want to play with your current hand.
