Blackjack – what is it and how do I play?
Also known as 21, blackjack is a card game where players compete against a dealer to build a hand equal to or as close to 21 as possible. If the value of a hand exceeds 21, the player – or dealer – whose hand it is goes bust and they’re out of the game. That’s the basics, basically! Okay, there’s a little more to it than that. Let’s run through how the game works:
First off, all the players at the table – usually 7 – and the dealer are dealt two cards each. One of the dealer’s cards is face up so everyone can see it and the players have to make a betting decision on the basis of the knowledge available to them – that’s the value of the cards in their hand and what they can see.
Card values are standard – face value for the 2s to the 10s, ten for the picture cards, and either one or eleven for an Ace, at the player’s discretion.
The first decision a player has to make once they’ve got their cards is whether to stick or hit, in other words, whether to stay with their current hand or ask for another card. The dealer reveals their hand once every place has either gone bust or decided to stick. If the dealer’s hand totals 16 or lower, then they have to keep drawing cards until the total is 17 or more. Whoever’s hand is closest to 21 is the winner of the round.
