Blackjack is played with a deck of cards, specifically French cards. You are playing against a dealer, and the goal is to get a value on your cards that is higher than the dealer’s, but not higher than 21. Why exactly 21? Because the highest sum of two cards has the value 21, namely when combining an ace and a card worth 10. This winning combination is called blackjack. If the value of your cards exceeds 21, you lose. It is important to always remember the following: Your goal is only to beat the dealer, not necessarily to get 21 . And there are several ways to do it. Either you end the game round with a higher value of the cards than the dealer, or you get an ace and a card worth 10 at the beginning of the round. The dealer can also lose if his cards are worth over 21. After the bets have been made (in the form of chips), the dealer will deal the cards from left to right. Each player receives two face-up cards. The dealer also receives two cards, one of which is face down. Players are not allowed to touch their cards.
If you have two cards that consist of an ace and an optional card worth 10, then you have blackjack and win the game round. The casino will then pay you 1.5 times the bet. If the dealer also gets blackjack, there will be a draw and you can play again with your bet. Give up – you give up the round. You can give up if you are not happy with your first two cards. Then you keep half your bet, and the other half goes to the casino. Insurance – you get a safety net. If the dealer’s first card is an ace, you can “insure” against the dealer getting blackjack. This must be done before the dealer takes his second card. You can insure at most half of your bet, and the payback is 2: 1.
