Game Objective

  The object of Blackjack 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. Other cards are represented by their number. If the Player and the House tie, it is a push and no one wins. Ace and 10 (Blackjack) on the first two cards dealt is an automatic Player wins at 1.5 to 1, unless the house ties.

  A player may stand at any time.

  For splitting the player needs to place an additional bet to the amount of the current bet on the hand being split. Split aces are allowed to draw only one additional card. Both Split and Double Down options are available only if the user's account balance permits placing an additional bet.

  Surrender is allowed with half of bet forfeited after the Dealer checks for a natural (a two-card count of 21) in which case the bet is forfeited.


Stand: If the player is satisfied with his hand as-is he may stand. Click 'Stand,' and when the dealer completes his or her hand, the hands will be compared.

Hit: If the player wishes to take another card he may continue to do so until he either stands or busts.

Double Down: If the player feels he needs one and only one more card then he may double his bet and be dealt one more card, good or bad. This option is only offered on the first two cards, and sometimes on the first two cards after splitting. (Doubling options in Las Vegas variant and Atlantic City variant are different; refer to the above give table for details).

Split: If the player's first two cards are of equal point value he may split them into two hands. In this event each card is the first card of a new hand. The player must also make another wager of equal value to the first for the second hand. The player may usually re-split up to 2 or 3 times if another splitting opportunity arises. Doubling down after splitting is usually but not always allowed. (Refer to the difference of split case in Las Vegas variant and Atlantic City variant in the above given table)

Surrender: Player has the option to surrender on the first two cards. If the player does not like their prospects he may forfeit half the bet as well as his cards. This option is generally only offered after the dealer checks for blackjack, known as "late surrender."

Insurance: Insurance is a caution amount (50% of bet placed) against the dealer's cards; which have higher chances of Blackjack. When ever dealers first card (open card) is Ace card, he has better chances of getting Blackjack hence the bets placed can be recovered by way of paying a caution amount to the house. Whether you win or lose, you lose this caution amount. In case of dealer got Blackjack hand and player has insurance, then, the player would lose only 50% of his amount.
