Twenty-One Essential Basics – Part 1

[ English ]

The general concept of the game is to be dealt cards adding up to twenty one. Every competitor is dealt two cards. When a gambler is handed a 9 or lower value card and an Ace they’ve been dealt a soft hand. When the black jack player receives no Ace cards it is called as a hard hand. Once the cards have been given to every player at the table, including the dealer, each blackjack player is provided the chance to make 1 of six actions:

Taking another card (Hit): When a player says hit me the croupier will deal them another card, if the adding of that card makes the total greater than twenty-one the gambler will have lost and that’s the end of the game, if the card makes the value of the hand to 21 the black jack player is the winner and if the total hasn’t yet reached twenty one they are still in the game.

Keeping the hand you have been given: If a blackjack player is satisfied with the cards they’ll hold. As soon as this has happened the dealer will disclose their cards and the black jack player who has gotten twenty one or the nearest to twenty-one will win.

Doubling Down: A blackjack player may ask to double down which increases the wager by one hundred percent they have laid. As soon as you’ve taken this procedure you can only be given 1 more card. The details of doubling down are often out lined by the table or betting house game rules so prior to wagering make sure you are familiar with the casino established rules. If you are wagering at an internet casino this is normally quite simple.
