Blackjack table

   Blackjack is one of the most popular and simple casino table games. The object of the game is to have your cards total higher than the dealer's hand as near to 21 as possible without going over. Everyone plays against the dealer (the house) who begins the game by dealing each player two cards and the house one card face up and one card face down.

 RULES

 Cards are counted at their face value. Kings, Queens and Jacks count as 10. Aces count as one or eleven at your opinion. If the first two cards you are dealt total 21 (Any 10-value card and an Ace), you have a blackjack. Blackjack pays one and half times your bet. You cannot lose, but you could tie if the dealer also has a Blackjack. If you are dealt any combination other than blackjack, you can either "stand" (take no more cards), or signal the dealer for a "hit" (draw additional cards). Remember, the objective is to reach 21 or as close to 21 as possible without going over. You also want your hand to be closer to 21 than the dealer's hand. If your card count is closer to 21 than the dealer's hand, you win - if it is less, the house wins. If you tie with the dealer, you "push" (nobody wins and nobody loses).
 If you should go over 21 "bust" you immediately lose. After each player takes their turn, the dealer turns up the house face down card. If the dealer has 16 or less, the house must "hit" (draw additional cards), until reaching 17 or more. Dealer must stand on a "soft 17": A "soft 17" is a hand containing at least one Ace and can be counted as either 7 or 17. If the dealer "busts" the house must pay all the players who are still in the game.


 SPLITTING PAIRS

   If you are dealt two cards with equal value, you have the option of "splitting" them into two separate hands. You must match your original bet if you "split". You may "split" a pair up to three times (making four separate hands). You can take as many "hits" as you like on each hand, If you "split" a pair of Aces, you will receive only one card on each of the hands, but if one of the "hit" cards is another Ace, you may re-split (making up to four separate hands). *21 on split Aces is not considered a blackjack and pays even money.


 DOUBLING DOWN

   Players also have the option of increasing their wager by "doubling down". After receiving your first two cards, you may "double down" by increasing your wager up to the amount of your original bet and receive only one additional card. You may "double down" on any first two cards. You may also "double down" after "splitting" a pair.


 INSURANCE

   If the dealer's "up" card is an Ace, you have the option of making an "insurance" wager. You may wager any amount up to half your original bet that the dealer's down card has a value of 10. That is, you are wagering that the dealer has blackjack. If the dealer's hole card has a value of ten, you will we paid two to one on your insurance wager. If the card has a value other than ten, you lose and the dealer takes your insurance wager.


 SURREBDER*

   After receiving your first two cards, if you feel that you probably cannot beat the dealer's hand, you are allowed to "surrender" by giving up half of your bet before the dealer acts on his hand. Simply announce verbally to the dealer that you wish to surrender when it is your turn to act on your hand.



   *Re-split of Aces and Surrender only applies to blackjack games dealt from a shoe.

   Hand Signals
   This is non-verbal communication between you and the dealer indicating when you wish to "hit" or "stand". Ask your dealer for the proper signals.
