How to play blackjack

Also known as Twenty-one, blackjack is a game whose origins date back to 17th century Spain. When the twenty-one fever hit the US, one of the highest payouts offered to players was 10 to 1 for the ace of spades plus a blackjack, which is exactly where its name comes from. In the classic black jack game, a maximum of seven players face the dealer. Every player receives two cards from the dealer and must get a bigger total than that of the dealer.

Blackjack: beat the dealer now

The aim of the blackjack game is to beat the dealer. If a player gets a total which is over 21 it means he has lost. If the dealer loses, he loses to every player. Also, in case no-one loses – or busts – players are given back the bets they placed and the blackjack hand takes the name of push. The best blackjack hand ever is the hand players refer to as natural or blackjack. This consists of two initial blackjack cards whose total value is 21. In this case, the player’s win is automatic.
