Blackjack Card Values

Blackjack Basics

To start, blackjack is a card game where a player will compete against the house or the dealer. The game involves all players being dealt cards which all have a specific value. For example, all cards from 2 to 10 are valued based on the number that appears on the card. That is, a 5 of hearts holds a value of the number 5 while the 9 of spades holds the value of the number 9. It is important to note that the suit of the card has no effect on the point value of the card which means that a 4 of diamonds and a four of hearts are both valued at 4 each.

Added to this, all the picture cards in the deck which include the Jacks, Queens and Kings, each have a value of 10 each.The ‘Ace’ is considered to be the only card to be unique in that it has two values – that is, the Ace can be counted as an 11 or as a 1 and this is determined based on the combination of cards a player is holding.

picture cards and ace value

For example, if a player is dealt an Ace and a 9, then they are likely to count the Ace as 11, giving the player a total card count of 20 (11+9). However, if a player is dealt a 3 and an Ace, they might choose to count the Ace as a 1 and then request an additional card (hit) from the dealer.

In blackjack, the objective of the game is to achieve a score as close to 21 as possible. This needs to be done without going over this number because once you do, you are said to go bust. Should you not reach 21, the objective of the game is then to achieve a higher score than the dealer. For example, a player is dealt a 10 & 8 and therefore his score is 18. The dealer has a 9 & 8, giving the dealer a score of 17. In this example, the player’s score is higher than the dealer’s and it is also closer to 21. In this example, the player wins.

To put it into simple terms, the main objective in the game of blackjack is to achieve an Ace and a 10 value card and to produce a total score of 21.
When blackjack is played, either one deck of cards is used but up to 8 decks of cards might be used. It is important to note that the less cards that are used, this is more of an advantage to the player whereas more decks means that there is more of an advantage to the dealer. Interestingly, not all casinos offer both single and double deck blackjack while many casinos also limit the number of blackjack tables that are available.
