About BLACK JACK
Blackjack (formerly Black Jack and Vingt-Un) is a casino banking game. It is the most widely played casino banking game in the world. It uses decks of 52 cards and descends from a global family of casino banking games known as Twenty-One. This family of card games also includes the European games Vingt-et-Un and Pontoon, and the Russian game. Blackjack players do not compete against each other. Your goal is to draw cards that total 21, or come closer to 21 than the dealer without going over.
How To Play
• The dealer and each player start with two cards. The dealer’s first card faces up, the second faces down. Face cards each count as 10, Aces count as 1 or 11, all others count at face value. An Ace with any 10, Jack, Queen, or King is a “Blackjack.”
• If you have a Blackjack, the dealer pays you one-and-a-half times your bet — unless the dealer also has a Blackjack, in which case it’s a “push” and neither wins. • If you don’t have Blackjack, you can ask the dealer to “hit” you by using a scratching motion with your fingers on the table.
• You may draw as many cards as you like (one at a time), but if you go over 21, you “bust” and lose. If you do not want to “hit,” you may “stand” by making a side-to-side waving motion with you hand.
• After all players are satisfied with their hands the dealer will turn his or her down card face up and stand or draw as necessary.
All winning bets are paid even money (1 to 1), except for Blackjack, which pays you one-and-a-half times your bet or 3 to 2.
• SURRENDER — A variation of the basic game of Blackjack. As a player’s point total is announced after the first two cards have been dealt, they may elect to discontinue play of their hand for that round and surrender only one-half of their wager. All decisions to surrender shall be made prior to the player indicating whether they wish to double down, split pairs, stand or draw.
• SPLITTING PAIRS — When you have two cards of the same denomination, you may split the pairs into two separate hands and play each hand individually up to a total of 3 hands. You must wager the same amount as your original bet on each split hand. If you split Aces, you get only one card on each Ace, and they can only be split one time.
• DOUBLING DOWN — Consider this if you think you can win with only one additional card. You may wager additional money up to your original bet, and receive one more card. A player has the option of doubling down after a hand has been split.
• INSURANCE — If the dealer’s “up card” is an Ace, you can take insurance. Here you’re betting that the dealer has a Blackjack. You can bet up to half your original bet. If the dealer does have a Blackjack and you don’t have a Blackjack, your original bet loses and the insurance is paid two to one. If the dealer doesn’t have a Blackjack, he takes the insurance bet and the game continues.
Playing the Game Lucky
Ladies is a side bet played at a traditional Blackjack table. To win, the first two cards dealt must form any total of “twenty”. Certain combinations of “twenty” will pay better odds (see back). The optional Lucky Ladies wager may exceed the original Blackjack wager in accordance with the posted table maximums. The minimum Lucky Ladies wager is $1. An original Blackjack wager also must be placed in order to wager on the Lucky Ladies option. Lucky Ladies wagers are for the first two cards dealt only and split hands do not apply. Once all Lucky Ladies wagers have been paid, the dealer will continue dealing normal Blackjack where all house rules apply.
