Have fun with the SCOIN blackjack game. Where all you have to do is beat the dealer! Choose how much SCOIN you want to use on the hand, and win twice the number of SCOIN if you get a 2 card blackjack. 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? 1. By drawing a hand value that is higher than the dealer’s hand value 2. By the dealer drawing a hand value that goes over 21. 3. By drawing a hand value of 21 on your first two cards, when the dealer does not. How do you lose to the dealer? 1. Your hand value exceeds 21. 2. The dealers hand has a greater value than yours at the end of the round Card values: 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. There are 5 ways you can play your hand: Stand – If your first two cards are acceptable, you can stand and the dealer will move on to the next player. [Hand signal: Wave your hand or simply put out an open palm over the felt.] Hit – If you would like more cards to improve your hand total, the dealer will deal you more cards, one at a time, until you either “bust” (go over 21) or you choose to stand. There is no limit on the number of cards you can take (other than going over a total of 21). [Hand Signal: Tap the felt with your finger.] Double Down – If you have a hand total that is advantageous to you but you need to take an additional card you can double your initial wager and the dealer will deal you only 1 additional card. [Hand signal: Just put up a wager, equal to your initial wager, on the left side of your original bet and the dealer will give you one additional card, turned sideways to indicate you may not take additional cards.] Note: most casinos will also allow you to “double for less” meaning you don’t have to put up an equal wager to your original wager. However, mathematically speaking there is never a time when doubling for less is a better decision than doubling for the full amount, so we would discourage “doubling for less” even if the casino will let you.
