Surrender Blackjack Mini Game

Game Objective:
The objective of Blackjack is to accumulate cards with total value as close to 21 as possible, without going over 21 ('going bust'). A hands value can be determined by adding all the cards in your hand together. The value assigned to cards is as follows:

The cards from 2 through 10 are valued as indicated.

Face cards (Jacks, Queens, and Kings) are all valued at 10 points.

An Ace counts as 1 or 11. It is worth 11 unless that would cause hand value to exceed 21 (bust), in which case it has a value of 1.

Soft total – A hand containing an Ace that can be counted as 11 without the total going above 21. For example, Ace-6 is soft 17.

Hard total – A hand containing an Ace that can be counted as only 1 because counting it as 11 would make the hand go over 21. For example, Ace-6-10 is hard 17.

A tie between the player and the house is known as a 'push', and means that no one wins or loses. If the first two cards dealt are an Ace and any 10-point card, it is known as blackjack, and is an automatic win for the player at 1.5 to 1, unless the house ties.

Game Information:
The minimum bet is US \$1, and the maximum bet is US \$100. The maximum bet applies for the initial bet of the game.

Six decks of 52 cards is used in this version of Blackjack.

The deck is shuffled after every hand.

The dealer must draw to 16 and stand on 17.

Only one split is allowed.

The player may double down on any number.

The number of cards that can be dealt to the player is limited only by choice (by clicking on 'STAND'), or by the hand total being greater than or equal to 21.

If the dealer has a 10, Jack, Queen, or King as the up card it is possible he has a blackjack, in which case your hand will lose if you have not bet on insurance, or you also have a blackjack.

How to Play:
Your chips are stacked in denominations of \$1, \$5, \$25 and \$100 on middle of the table.

Select the amount you want to wager on a given hand by clicking on the chip of that denomination. Then click on the place bet circle to place the chip there.

Once the wager is placed, click on the 'DEAL' button. The 'DEAL' button will be enabled only if a bet is equal to or more than the minimum bet.

The dealer deals you two cards face-up, and then deals himself two cards, one face-up and the other face-down.

Depending on the strength of your cards, you can choose from the following options offered to you: 'HIT', 'STAND', 'DOUBLE', or 'SPLIT', as per the game rules.
