Whether you are new to casino gaming or a betting house veteran, twenty-one is one of the simplest and most fun games casinos have to offer. The goal in twenty-one is to best the croupier by acquiring a hand as close to twenty-one as as you can and not exceeding 21. To compete in blackjack, you need only a general understanding of the rules and a ambition to experience excitement.

So how do you reach twenty-one? In blackjack, the cards have values. Number cards 2 up to 10 are valued at their printed value, while all face cards (King, Queen and Jack) are worth ten points. The ace is a unique card in chemin de fer: you make a choice whether it’s worth one or eleven points. Since casino gamblers are given 2 cards to begin, if you are dealt an ace and a face card or 10,you’ve achieved twenty-one-an instant success, as long as the croupier does not get twenty-one as well. This twocard winning hand is called a "blackjack"; hence the name of the game!

Casino game rules for blackjack are basically similar at all casinos. After you get your first two cards, your possibilities are to hit, stay with your first 2 cards, double down, split, or sometimes bow out.

When you wager on twenty-one at a casino, be certain to know which blackjack table to pick. Most casinos have colour coded blackjack tables according to the min wager the table accepts, normally 3 dollars, 5 dollars, 25 dollars or one hundred dollars. In any casino, it is a given the 3 dollar and $5 tables will be bursting, but they’re excellent for amateurs at black jack due to the fact that all of the cards are given out face-up, instead of the 1up, one-down concept at higher tables. So the next instanceor the first instanceyou goto a betting house, make a visit the blackjack tables and target for twenty one!
