• Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games. The objective of this game is to draw card(s) totalling 21 or as close to 21 as possible. The player wins if his points are higher than those of the dealer.
  • Picture cards (King, Queen and Jack) count as 10, Ace as 1 or 11, whichever is to your advantage, and all other cards count as face value.
  • There is no limit to the number of cards drawn as long as the total point count is not less than 12 and does not exceed 21.
  • The game begins with you betting using House chips only. Betting limits are displayed at the gaming table.
  • You will be dealt 2 cards, while the House takes 1 card, and the cards will be dealt face-up. Your total points for the first 2 cards will determine whether additional cards are required.
  • You must have a minimum total of 12 points or a maximum of 21 (“Blackjack” or “Natural 21”) for the initial 2 cards. If not, you are required to “hit” an additional card or cards until you have a count of not less than 12 and not exceeding 21. No additional card should be drawn if your total points have exceeded 21 (also known as “going over” or “bust”), in which case you lose.
  • However, if the House’s first card is an Ace, you have the option of taking “insurance” against the House having a possible Blackjack.
  • When your total point count is above 12 and below 21, you may “stay”. After the other players have had their turns at drawing cards and stayed, a second card will be dealt to the House. The House must have a minimum total of 17 points and a maximum total of 21 points.
