How to Win Blackjack
The winning hand in blackjack is the hand that totals closest to 21.
You can make 21 up from any number of cards, though a 10 or a picture card and an ace – known as Blackjack – will beat other combinations.
Picture cards count as 10, numbered cards count as they appear and aces could be 1 or 11, depending on what benefits your hand.
If your cards have the same numerical value as the dealer’s you’ll receive your bet back, unless one hand contains an ace and a picture card, in which case it wins.
One of the reasons behind Blackjack’s popularity is that there are so many variants to the game. The following list of features may be varied in different versions of the game.
If you receive two matching cards you can split your hand. This means one pair is divided into two separate hands, each of which can be used to beat the dealer. When splitting you must bet the same wager on both hands and then play each card as though it were a hand.
Doubling down is when you to double your original bet, after you’ve looked at your first two cards. After doubling, you may draw only one more card.
If you opt to double and win you’ll be paid out an amount double your original wager.
If the dealer gets Blackjack after you’ve split or doubled, your entire wager, both original and double or split amounts, are lost.
If the dealer’s first card is an ace, you can safeguard your hand against the possibility that the dealer has Blackjack, by opting for insurance.
The insurance bet costs half your original wager but if the dealer does have Blackjack, your insurance will pay out at 2-to-1 though you’ll lose your original wager.
If the dealer doesn’t have Blackjack, you’ll lose the insurance though you can continue the play based on your original wager.
Insurance only covers your original wager; it does not cover any double down bet.
