The object of the game is to achieve a higher card count than the dealer without exceeding 21.
Our blackjack game uses four 52-card decks.
Enter a betting amount by clicking on the chips located at the lower right corner of the screen. The chips are automatically placed on the table when clicked. Note: The right mouse button is for deducting money from the table.
After wagering your amount, click on the "DEAL" button at the bottom of the game screen.
Once your cards are shown, 4 choices may appear at the bottom of the game screen (in button format), choose one.
Hit: The dealer gives the player another card. (e.g. If both of your cards are equal to 10, then you have nothing to lose by requesting another card, since your total may not exceed 21).
Stand: The player is satisfied with his/her hand and does not want to risk another card.
Split: If your first two cards are of the same value, you may want to split them into two separate hands by placing a second wager of equal value. You then proceed to draw cards as usual. If you split two aces and one of your hands is 21, this is not considered blackjack, but 21. The Split button will only appear if you have a Split.
Double Down: On any two cards you may "double down." When you "double down," your wager is doubled and you are allowed to hit and receive just one additional card.
Minimum bet: $1
Maximum bet: $200
The last bet button allows you to play a new game without choosing the chips. It automatically chooses the same amount as you previously betted with.
The right mouse button, deducts money from the table.

Over 21 - "Busted"
Insurance gives you the chance to protect yourself when you believe that the dealer might have
blackjack. If the dealer's first card is an ace, he is considered to
have a fair chance of getting blackjack. If you believe that the dealer's
dark card is of value 10, you may buy insurance against the dealer's
blackjack at the price of half your initial bet. If the dealer does
have blackjack, the insurance pays 2 to 1, corresponding to the amount
of your initial bet. If you have bought insurance, and the dealer does
not have blackjack, you lose your insurance. Your initial bet is then
settled by comparing your cards with the dealer's.
The dealer must draw cards until he has at least 17, and must stand
at 17 or higher.
If the dealer gets 16, he must take another card.
The dealer may not decide whether or not to draw a card based on your
hand, but must abide by the existing dealer rules.
The player's strategy should be guided by two factors, the player's
own cards and the dealer's open card.
