If you think that blackjack card game is very difficult to play and that is why it will be very problematic to learn all its rules and strategies, you are not right here; but do not think also that blackjack is very easy to play because it does not have many rules and its objective is rather clear. Actually, it is the common mistake of all newcomers of blackjack: they do not understand the objective of the game clearly and it becomes quite difficult for them to win blackjack.

Remember: together with its rules and strategies, it is important for you to understand blackjack objective perfectly.

What should you do?

Some players are sure that their main goal at blackjack is to get 21 points or beat all players at blackjack table but it is not actually true: the main goal of blackjack is TO BEAT A DEALER, and it does not matter how many points you have (21 or just 12) if you have more than a dealer has. One more detail to remember: do not pay attention to other blackjack players who sit at the same blackjack table with you! Your goal is a dealer and a casino in general, not other players: as well as you, each of them tries to beat a dealer at the moment!

You should also remember that you should not exceed 21 points when you play blackjack: if your number of points is more than 21 it is called to be BUST and means LOSS at once.

How to count your scores?

In the beginning of the game you are dealt 2 cards faced up, and a dealer has one card faced up and other one - faced down; your task now is to count your scores properly and decide what to do next in order to beat the dealer and get your winning.

Usually, blackjack is played with 6-8 decks of 52 cards and each card has its own value of course; they are the following:

  • Ace = 1 or 11
  • Face cards = 10 points
  • 2's - 10's = according to their number

Remember, that a dealer's game depends on casino rules, so, sometimes it gives you more chances to win; do not forget also to use blackjack strategy to improve your chances for winning!

Note! Blackjack is the initial hand of 2 cards which gives a player 21 points at once: it is the combination of an Ace and any card of 10 points (only this card combination can bring 21 points to a gambler) and it is paid as 3:2 when all other hands are paid as 1:1.
