Black Jack

“Blackjack” is an exciting fun game where the objective of this card game is to achieve a hand that is higher than the Dealer’s hand without exceeding 21.

“Blackjack”, the ultimate hand, is when an Ace and a ten/picture card are the first two cards dealt to any hand. If you have the same card total as the Dealer after all cards have been drawn and decisions made, this is called a “Stand Off” and your wager neither wins nor loses.

The Dealer will stand after drawing cards to obtain a total of between 17-21. If you exceed 21 your wager will lose and if the Dealer exceeds 21, they will lose and all wagers on the layout will be winners and paid accordingly.

How To Play

You will place a wager(s) on the betting area and may also place an optional wager on the pair.

Once all bets are placed, the Dealer will deal two cards in a sequence, face up, to each of the boxes and one card to him/herself. After receiving these cards, you will decide if you want additional card/s or not.
