American Blackjack rules of the game
Once a player receives two face-up cards, and the dealer collects their face-up and face-down cards, they have a few options. Cards 2-10 have a value equal to the number printed on the card. Face cards, including the King, Queen and Jack, have a value of 10. An ace can have a value of 1 or 11.
A starting hand of 10 or 11 lets you ‘Double Down.’ This doubles your wager and allows you to hit one more time.
A player can ask for another card (‘Hit’) if their hand doesn’t go over 21. Split your initial hand into two independent hands when each card has an equal value, at the cost of your original bet. A player can hit as many times as they want, provided the hand doesn’t go over 21. If you split an ace, you can only hit once per hand.
Buying ‘Insurance’ gives you the option to protect against the possibility that the dealer is holding a blackjack when its visible card is an ace.
When you finish your turn, click on the ‘Stand’ button. The dealer rules of American Blackjack state that it must hit on soft 17.
