BlackJack Rules


Description and Objective
The objective of Blackjack is for a player to come as close to 21 without going over, while still having a higher number than the dealer. Prior to receiving any cards, the player must place a wager. Once the wager is made, the player is dealt two cards face up. The dealer is also dealt two cards. If the total value of the player’s cards is closer to 21 than the dealer, the player wins as much as he wagered. The player wins if the dealer goes over 21.

The following terminology is used in the play of the game:

Bet - the Player may make any wager desired within the posted table limits.

Deal - the Player gets two cards face up and the Dealer gets two cards.

Blackjack – is achieved when first two cards total 21. Blackjack beats a score of 21 consisting of 3 or more cards.

Bust – is achieved when total value of cards for either the Dealer or the Player exceeds 21 resulting in a loss of the wager.

Push – is achieved when the value of the Dealer’s cards (from 17 to 21) and the Player’s cards are equal resulting in neither winning. It also results in the return of the Player’s wager.

Hit – Player desires another card to be dealt.

Stand – Player desires to keep hand dealt

Split – Player desires hand to be split two cards into separate hands.

Double – Player desires to double bet and receive another card.

Card Values

Suits of the cards have no meaning in the game.
Cards 2 through 10 are the face value.
Jacks, Queens and Kings are all valued at 10.
Aces can count as either 1 or 11 (except in the game of “Caribbean 21”where the Ace has a value of 1 only).

If the player has a hand that consists of a 6 and an Ace, he may either consider it at 17 or drop its value to 7. The Ace may count as 1 or 11. You may change the value of the Ace as the hand progresses.

Button Descriptions

Clicking on the deal button after placing a bet starts a new game.


Clicking on the hit button will deal the player an additional card.


Clicking on the stand button will keep the player’s hand at its current value.


If the player’s first two cards are of the same value (i.e. 7, 7, or Q, K) he may split them into 2 separate hands, placing a second wager of equal value. The player then proceeds to draw cards as usual, with these exceptions:

If a player splits two aces, he receives only one additional card for each hand. A hand totaling 21 after splitting aces is considered 21, not Blackjack.


When a player has been dealt two cards and believes that a third card will give him a position to beat the dealer’s hand, he can “double.” His wager is doubled, and he is allowed to hit and receive just one additional card.


Insurance gives the player a chance to protect himself when he believes the dealer might have Blackjack. If the dealer’s first card is an ace, he is considered to have a fair chance of getting Blackjack. If the player believes the dealer’s hole card (face down) value is 10, the player may purchase insurance against dealer Blackjack at the price of half their initial bet. If the dealer does have Blackjack, the insurance pays 2 to 1, which corresponds to the amount of the initial bet. If the player has bought insurance and the dealer does not have Blackjack, the player loses his insurance. The player’s initial bet is then settled by comparing his cards with the dealer’s. If the dealer and the player both have Blackjack, the game results in a push.
