Your objective is to have a hand of cards totaling higher than the dealer's hand. The trick is that you don't want to exceed 21 points; if this happens, you will lose your initial bet. The values of the cards range from 2 through 10, with face cards worth 10 points. The value of the Ace may be assigned a value of either 1 or 11 by the participant. The optimal combination for the player is an Ace paired with a card valued at 10 points; this is called hitting a blackjack. If this happens, you will win 1.5 times your bet value. Individuals begin by betting, and then the dealer will give them each a face-up card before dealing himself or herself a face-down card. The dealer then distributes another face-up card to the participants.
The participants take turns in a clockwise direction and may draw additional cards. The dealer must take a turn as well, and remains in the competition if his total card value is greater than 17. If the dealer surpasses 21 points, those at the table receive their money back, and if the house's total is between 17 and 21, anyone with a higher total wins. One special option that people have during their turns is to double. An individual can opt to double his or her bet, but may not draw another card. Another option is the split - when two equally-valued cards are drawn, they can be split into two different hands. Of course, a second bet will need to be made if this option has taken. These are just a couple of the advanced moves available in blackjack online games which anyone can practice at Planet7 Casino.
