Blackjack is a classic card game based on luck and played around the world, both for fun and for the stakes involved. Translated by the “valet noir” in English, it would come from the French card game: “the twenty-one”.

The principle of the game is simple, it is to get 21 points or to get as close as possible, without ever exceeding that figure. Valets, ladies and kings are called high cards and are worth 10 points. Aces are worth 1 point or 11 points depending on what the player decides. The rest of the cards count for their face value (example: the two of hearts are worth two points).

Players can be from one to seven. Each player plays individually against the dealer, in other words against the casino. These indicate the amount of their bet. Using a shoe that contains four sets of 54 cards, the dealer will distribute (one by one and in a clockwise direction) two cards to each player as well as to himself. Cards dealt to players are visible; on the other hand, on the two he has given himself, only the first is visible. The second is facing the carpet and will only be shown at the end.

The dealer will offer additional cards starting with the player on the right. Several choices are available to the player:

FIRE: Requesting an additional card, if one of these cards makes him exceed the total of 21, it is said that he “burns” and the dealer immediately picks up his bet. He lost.

STAY: The player keeps his hand as it is.

TO SEPARATE: If two cards constitute a pair, the player may choose to separate them, then advance an amount bet equivalent to the first, and place next to the first bet. The dealer will take care of separating the two cards and completing them: again the player can shoot or stay.

DOUBLE: When the two cards received give a total of 9, 10 or 11 the player can double his bet, it is according to the dealer’s card that the player will decide to double or not, he then receives only one additional map.

ENSURE: When the dealer’s card is an Ace (with a high probability of doing Black Jack, so) the player has the opportunity to take the insurance. He then deposits in the box provided for this purpose a stake of an amount equivalent to half of his first bet. If the dealer makes Black Jack the player loses his initial bet but doubles his insurance bet, which amounts to repaying his initial bet. The player has neither won nor lost. If the dealer does not make Black Jack but loses, the player wins but loses his insurance bet. Finally, if the dealer does not make Black Jack but still wins, the player loses both his initial bet and his insurance bet. If the dealer does not make Black Jack but loses, the player wins but loses his insurance bet. Finally, if the dealer does not make Black Jack but still wins, the player loses both his initial bet and his insurance bet. If the dealer does not make Black Jack but loses, the player wins but loses his insurance bet. Finally, if the dealer does not make Black Jack but still wins, the player loses both his initial bet and his insurance bet – learn about blackjack charts at blackjack.org.

When the dealer has finished serving the players and picking up the stakes of those who have burned, he still has to discover his hidden card and serve himself. Then begins the final phase of the tour.
