Blackjack Games

The basic objective of the game of blackjack is to have a hand that is closer in value to 21 than that of a dealer without going over that 21 which will mean going bust. The hand will only be played out against the dealer’s hand. In this game players are not supposed to worry about the other players but only about the dealer. This game is played with one or more decks of cards with each deck consisting of 52 cards each. Players are usually dealt with two cards each initially and are supposed to add the total of these two cards. These cards consist of four different symbols namely hearts, diamonds, spades and flowers.

All the cards in this game have values with the number 2 to 10 cards retaining their values while the ace has a value of either 1 or 11 and the Jacks, Queens and Kings have a value of 10 each. This thereby means that 31% percent of cards in each deck have a value of 10. After the first two cards are dealt players will then have an option of getting a “hit” which means that they will be able to take additional cards in order to bring their total cards value to 21 points or as close to 21 as possible without exceeding 21 which will mean that they will go ”bust”.

In normal circumstances dealers take hits when their two cards have a total value of less than 17. If a player does not bust and has a high cards total than the dealer, then they will be declared the winner. The dealer in this game only loses when they go bust or has a lesser cards value than that of the player who has not bust. In some cases the player and the dealer may have the same cards total value and this is what is refereed to as “push” and here the player will not win or lose any money on that particular hand. It is however important to keep in mind that today there are many variations of the blackjack game. This also means that players will need to employ various strategies if they are going to increase their chances of winning in this game.

One of the most popular strategies in this game is tracking the cards profiles which have been dealt and then adapt a wager. This strategy also needs to be executed with other strategies for efficiency so it is important to get to know the various strategies that are used in this game. It is also important to choose carefully where you play blackjack as there are some casinos that are not reputable which may make you lose a lot of money. You can research using the internet or by asking from friends or family members who are also enthusiastic about blackjack.
