Blackjack

Overview

Blackjack or first known as “ventiuna”, in Spanish “twenty-one” was first mentioned in the novel Don Quixote. However, at the 16th century it was played with a Spanish baraja deck which has the eights, nines and tens taken out of the deck.

In time the game was brought to the United States. The first variations of Blackjack included a ten to one payout if the player had the ace of spades and a black jack, be that a jack of clubs or jack of spades. However, not long after that this feature was removed.

The modern version has eights, nines and tens unlike the first variation.

How It Works

The final objective is to reach a number of 21. Everything under that or close to the number 21 is considered good. Winning condition is to win exactly 21 or to have a hand that has a higher sum than the one the dealer has.

Essentially the player plays against the dealer not against other players. The table usually has 2-6 players. The dealer usually will not stop drawing cards until it has a sum of 17.

There is a short list of terminology you should know about before taking a seat on some of the blackjack tables.

  • Hit – Ask the dealer to give you another card

  • Stand – You do not want more cards (stand pat)

  • Double down – You double your bet and you receive exactly ONE more card

  • Split – In case the first two cards of one hand have the same value the player has the right to split the cards making two separate hands. By doing this the player double the bet, meaning he places the same bet on the newly created hand.

  • Surrender – This is available only if it is the first decision you are making with your hand. By doing this you will get half of your bet back.
