The Simplicity of Blackjack

Bright lights and fancy decorations are not the only elements that attract people to the casino. The fantastic food is a great come on, but most of the people who head to the casino are there for the adrenaline rush that comes with taking a risk, the thrill of experiencing the world of card games and slot machines or the need to make money in a flash.

Blackjack is a very popular card game because of its simplicity. Not only is it to learn, it is also a game that does not take a lot of time. Unlike poker, a group is not required to play this game. The game can start as long as there is a dealer and a player. The objective of this game is to beat the dealer by obtaining a higher card than him but the sum of these cards should not be more than 21.

This game is played using a semi-circle table where each player has his own spot. In order to start this game, all the players should place their initial bet by putting their chips in the betting circle marked in the table. Chips represent different monetary value.

After the bets have been placed, the dealer will give two cards to each player, including to himself. The cards of each player are visible to the others while only one of the dealer's cards can be seen by the players. The hidden card is called the hole card.

The players must then add the values of their cards. The card 2-10, regardless of the suit and the color, has the same value, while all the face cards have the value of 10. The ace card has two values, either 1 or 11. This means that if the player has an ace card, he can use the value which will give him a higher score when he adds it up to his other card. If the value of the cards has the sum 21, then it is "blackjack".

Getting a "blackjack" doesn't require a black card or a jack. Whoever gets a sum of 21 wins and the losing players are "bust". In case the player gets a blackjack over the dealer, the dealer must pay him 3 to 2 for his bet. Otherwise, the dealer will get all the bets. If the player and the dealer both have a "blackjack", then it is called a "push".

Blackjack is a very easy game to play. As long as a person can add some numbers and intelligently guess what the hole card is, he can easily win this game.
