Objective

In this game, the player and the dealer (the computer) are each dealt two cards. The player and the dealer both try to get the hand they are dealt to equal twenty-one without going over. The hand that gets closer to twenty-one without going over, wins the bet. In blackjack, you are competing only against the dealer, not against the other players.

Online BlackJack Rules

You may ask for additional cards as long as the value of your hand does not exceed 21. If you go over 21 this is called a BUST and you automatically loose the hand. If you have not yet exceeded 21, you will choose to STAY and the dealer will begin to draw it's cards.

The dealer must stand (STAY) on all 17 and draw on 16 or less. Face cards (the Jack, Queen and King) all have a value of ten in Blackjack. An ACE card may have a value of either 1 or 11. Any combination of cards that contains an Ace card and whose value does not exceed 21 is referred to as a SOFT HAND’. An ACE will adopt the value most beneficial for your hand. For example an Ace and eight will add up to 19 but if the player chooses to take another card that would cause the hand's value to exceed 21 the Ace will revert to a value of 1.

If you are dealt an ACE and a card with the value of ten (a natural ten or face card) as your first two cards this is called BLACKJACK. You will automatically stay when you receive a Blackjack. If you beat the dealer with a Blackjack you are paid out at 3 to 2.

If you receive two cards of the same value (such as two ‘Ace’s or two fives or two tens) you may SPLIT’ your hand. This means that your pair is divided into two separate hands. You wager a second amount equal to that of your original wager on the second hand and are able to play both hands as normal. If you have split a pair of aces and then draw a card with a value of ten then this is not counted as Blackjack. Such a hand would have a value of 21. It will beat any dealer's hand with a value of less than 21 and draw against all other Dealer hands except a Blackjack. This rule also applies to splitting pairs of cards with a value of ten. Should you split a pair of tens (or face cards) and then recieve an ace this hand is not counted as Blackjack.

If the value of your initial two cards is 9, 10 or 11 then you are allowed to DOUBLE DOWN’. This is a wager that your next card will be sufficient to beat the dealer’s as-of-yet-uncompleted hand. Your wager is doubled but then so is the pay out if you win. You will only be able to draw one extra card per hand. Insurance only covers your original bet. It does not cover any Double Down bet.
