This is an infinite deck (63 decks maximum) BlackJack Card game.
The object of the blackjack game is to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over 21. Face cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are worth 10 points. Aces are worth 1 or 11, whichever is preferable. Other cards are represented by their number.
To win, the player must beat the dealer without busting. A bust happens when the cards of the player total to more than 21 and this will cause the player to lose automatically. If the player will bust, the dealer will only reveal his face-down card and the game will end. The winner is whoever has closest to a total of 21.
The decks of cards are used and are shuffled together by the dealer and placed in a card dispensing box called Shoe.
Before receiving any cards, the player must place a wager. Then the player is dealt two cards face up. The dealer gets one face up, one face down. The player can stay or take more cards to try and get closer to 21 without busting. If the player did not bust, then the player can wait for the dealer's turn. When the player is done, the dealer turns up the down card. By rule, on counts of SOFT 17 or higher the dealer must stay; on counts of 16 or lower the dealer must draw.
If the player makes a total of 21 with the first two cards (a 10 or a face and an Ace), the player wins automatically. This is called Natural Blackjack. If the player has Natural Blackjack, his bet pays 2:1.
If the dealer has Natural Blackjack and player has Natural Blackjack, then the player wins and his bet pays 2:1.
If the player does not have Natural Blackjack and he has a higher count than the dealer (including when he does 21 with more than 2 cards), he wins an amount equal to his bet (1:1). If the player does not have Natural Blackjack and has a lower count than the dealer he lose his bet.
Once the player turn ends, the dealer will keep drawing cards until he will beat the player or until the dealer will bust.
If the dealer busts, the player wins an amount equal to his bet (1:1).
There are other betting options namely Double Down.
The well known Insurance and Split features from classic Blackjack do not exist in this game.
Double Down : double your initial bet following the initial two-card deal, but you can hit one card only. A good bet if the player is in a strong situation. Most casinos will allow you to double down on any two cards. Some casinos will let you double down after splitting and some will limit your doubling down to hands that total ten or eleven. However, there is one condition: When you double down, you must take one additional card and you cannot receive more than one.
