Blackjack Rules

strategies are difficult to master. For new players, it helps to remember that Blackjack is also called "21" because 21 is the target figure that the players are trying to reach in Blackjack. When playing Blackjack, your goal is to get as close as possible to 21 without going over. If you get closer to 21 than the dealer's, or if the dealer go over, you win the hand. If you do not get as close to 21 as a dealer, or you go over 21, the dealer wins. If your hand is the same value as the dealer's hand, your bet is returned to you.

Scoring a hand
