The BlackJack game except the Roulette is probably, the second-best known of all casino games worldwide. This play-card game has many variations and it is known by many different names: e.g. Pontoons, Twenty-one, or Ponies.
Blackjack is played always between a dealer and a group of players. The object of the game is to beat the dealer (not the other players) with a hand of cards that does not go over 21. Blackjack can be played with a single deck or multiple decks.
The value of the hand is the sum of all the play cards:
- Face cards count as 10.
- Aces count equals either 1 or 11, the player’s choice.
- All other cards count as their face value.
The object of the game is to score closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand without going over 21. This is very important, as any hands that surpass 21 will automatically be considered “Too many” (BUST).
In our Casino, the BJ is played with 8 decks of 52 cards.
