Blackjack is the casino's most popufar card game. This game was adapted from a version of the French game vingt-et-un, of "21".
The object of this game is to have the total point value of the cards dealt you exceed the point va'ue of the Dealer's hand without going over 21. If you go over 21 or "bust", you automatically lose, even if the Dealer subsequently also goes bust. Picture cards (Jack. Queen or King) count as 10. Aces count as either 1 or 11. whichever you choose. All other cards (2. 3, 4. 5, 6. 7, 8,9,10) count as face value.
After you place your bet. the Dealer starts the game by dealing you two cards and himself two cards. If you feel you need additional cards to beat the Dealer, you may take a 'hit' and receive another card. There is no limit to how many "hits" you can take as long as you donl 'bust" (go over 21). When you are satisfied with your hand, you will indicate to the Dealer that you will 'stand", or not receive any more cards The Dealer will then checx his cards. The Dealer must draw a card on any po<nt total of 16 or less and stand on any point total of 17 or more. If your cards total 21 or less and the Dealer's point total is over 21, you win. If the Dealer gets closer to 21 than you without gomg over, the Dealer wins.
When your point total is the same as the Dealer's, the hand will be a "push" (you neither win nor lose) and your bet will be returned to you
