InBlackjack are used 6 packs of the standard 52-card. The ace can value, accordingly, 1 or 11 and the figures are worth 10. Standing players can bet in the same area where another player is seated, provided that they do not interfere with his game.
The game of Blackjack
To win a player hato to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over 21. Bets are payed even. If your first two cards are an ace and a face card or a 10, this is blackjack and your payout will be 1.5 times the amount of your bet. Blackjack will always beat any hand that requires more than two cards to make 21. If you go over 21 you ‘bust’ and automatically lose.
Doubling down in Blackjack
After receiving his first two cards, totaling 9, 10 0r 11, and before any more are dealt to him, a player has the option to ‘double down’. To ‘double down’ means the player is allowed to double his initial bet in exchange for receiving only one more card from the dealer. If a player doubles down with 8 an ace and draws a 2, the total will be 11, not 21.
Splitting pairs in Blackjack
When you are dealt a matching pair of cards, you can split the hand into two separate hands, and play them independently. If you are dealt a pair of aces you will receive only card on each. If you are dealt a 10 or a figure the total will be 21, not Blackjack. If on splitting two 10s you are dealt an ace the total will again be 21, not Blackjack.
If the dealer’s upcard is an ace, the player is offered the option of taking Insurance before the dealer checks his cards, against the eventuality that he scores a blackjack. Insurance is a side bet of up to half the original bet placed on a special portion of the table usually marked ‘Insurance’. The bet pays 2-to-1 if the dealer has a blackjack, otherwise it is lost and the game proceeds.
When the player has blackjack and the dealer has an ace, the insurance bet may be offered as ‘even money’, meaning that the player’s blackjack is paid immediately at 1:1 before checking the dealer’s hand. Regarding the rules of the game and every other case not hereby specified the decision is made by the General Management.
The new bet consists of betting on obtaining Blackjack in the player’s own box and pays 18 to 1. This bet can only be placed (before the cards have been extracted) if the player has also placed a bet in the traditional box. The maximum bet is equal to double the table minimum.
