Online Blackjack


Basic Online Blackjack Rules
In Online Blackjack, you and the dealer (the computer) are dealt two cards to start. The objective of Blackjack is to accumulate cards that add up closer to 21 than that of the dealer's cards, without going over 21.

Blackjack Cards are worth their face value with the exception of Kings, Queens, and Jacks which are each worth 10 and Aces which are worth either 1 or 11. If the value of your hand is closer to 21 than that of the dealer you win.

If the value of the dealer's hand is higher than yours you lose. If the hands are of equal value the deal is a push and your money is returned. If you have a total of 22 or higher (a busted hand), you lose regardless of whether the dealer also busts.

Blackjack is played with up to eight fifty-two card decks. After each game has been played, the used cards are shuffled back into the deck. All face cards are valued at ten and the cards from 2-10 are valued as indicated.

Aces can be valued at either one or eleven; if counting the ace as eleven would put the hand over twenty-one, the ace is automatically counted as one instead. You do not need to specify which value the Ace has as it's always assumed to have the value that makes the best hand.

The value of a hand is the sum of the values of the individual cards. For example, a hand containing a Jack, 3, and 4 has a value of 17.

You begin a hand of Online Blackjack by placing a bet on the table. You will then receive two cards face up. The dealer will receive one card face up and one face down. Once you have been dealt your two cards (and based on the nature of these cards) you can do the following:
 

Hit
Requests another card. You can request a hit as many times as you like, but if your total goes over twenty-one, you will bust and lose the hand.

Stand
Requests that you receive no more cards. The hand as it currently stands will be judged against the dealers.

Split
If you have two cards of the same denomination, a Split button will appear. You can split your cards into two hands and play each hand separately. Your original bet will be duplicated for the new hand.

Each hand will be played out as usual except when splitting Aces, where only one additional card per hand is dealt. The split option can only be used once per hand -- you cannot split part of a split hand. Any winning 21 obtained after splitting a pair is paid 1-to-1.

Double Down
If you select this option, two things will happen: you will get exactly one more card, your turn will end, and your bet will be doubled.

Insurance
Whenever the Blackjack dealer's up-card is an Ace, the player has an option of taking insurance. The player may opt to take insurance by clicking on the Insurance button. If you do not wish to take insurance, you simply click on the Pass button to proceed with the rest of the hand. If the player believes that the dealer's down-card is a 10 ranking card, then the player is permitted to place a side bet of half the original wager as insurance.
