Information About Blackjack Casino Game
Blackjack, also known as twenty-one, is one of the most popular casino card games in the world. Blackjack's precursor was vingt-et-un ("twenty-one"), which originated in French casinos around 1700.
The game is played with 4 decks, each consisting of 52 cards. Cards are shuffled after every round. In Blackjack a player competes against the Dealer. The goal of the game is to beat the Dealer's hand, either by getting a better hand without exceeding 21 or by the Dealer's hand going bust (going over 21). Both the player and the dealer are dealt two cards, and from there, they both may request additional cards according to the rules, as long as they do not exceed the value of 21. The Dealer draws until a total of 17 (soft and hard 17) or until the hand is bust (over 21), after that the two hands are compared and bets paid or collected.
A Blackjack is a hand with a total of 21, containing an Ace and any ten-valued card (Jack, King, Queen or Ten), but only when these two cards are the first two cards dealt to a player or the Dealer.
