Blackjack is one of the popular casino card games and it is very easy to pick up as the basic rules are very simple to understand. Online blackjack involves the players being dealt cards through a constant shuffling mechanism, which promises randomness in the dealing. The player plays against the dealer and both the player and the dealer get two cards each, with the dealer getting his one card face up and the other face down. The aim is to take the card total to the highest possible value within 21. For the purpose, they can even draw additional cards. The face cards carry the value of ten, Ace can be counted as either one or eleven, and the rest of the cards are taken at their face value. The one whose card value is nearest to 21 wins the bet, but a value above 21 is considered going ‘bust’ and the bet is lost. In case of a tie, the player gets his bet back and it known as a ‘push’. If the initial two cards of the player have the total value of 21, they make a ‘natural blackjack’ and automatically win the bet. However, the bet is tied if the dealer too has a natural blackjack. The Ace is considered a special card in blackjack as it can be used for two different values. A hand that has an Ace in it is called a ‘Soft Hand’, while a hand without an Ace is called a ‘Hard Hand’. The game has certain optional bets also that if played sensibly can lead to good payouts.
