Before you can get cards dealt you need to choose how much SCOIN you want to use on the hand.
How do you beat the dealer?
How do you lose to the dealer?
All the cards are assigned numeric value (Cards 2-10 are valued at the face, face cards are valued at 10 points each, and ace has a binary value which is either 1 or 11).
To win the game, you have to either score a blackjack, which is a total of the sum of your cards being 21. Or get your sum total nearer to 21 than the dealer without going over the total amount of 21.
Remember, in the game of blackjack player always goes first.
The game starts with two of your cards on the show and one card of the dealer on display. You have to plan your next move.
To play your hand, first you add the card values together and get a hand total anywhere from 4 to 21. If you’re dealt a ten-value card and an Ace as your first two cards that means you got a Blackjack! Congratulations! Those get paid 2 to 1 immediately, without playing through the round, as long as the dealer doesn’t also have a Blackjack. If the dealer also has a Blackjack, you wouldn’t win anything but you also wouldn’t lose your original wager. This is called a “push”.
If YOU don’t have a Blackjack AND the dealer doesn’t have a blackjack, your dealer will point to each player in succession and wait for you to decide how you want to play your hand. When it’s your turn, you will have to make your decision using the appropriate hand signal. Dealers will not respond to your verbal instructions because the cameras need to see your decisions as well.
