How to play blackjack

Blackjack is a game of both skill and luck. The aim of the game is to get as close to, but not exceeding, the card value of 21. The ideal value being 21, otherwise known as blackjack.

You play against the dealer who is also trying to get as close to 21 as possible in order to beat you.

To ‘go bust’ means to exceed 21.

Jacks, Queens and Kings have a value of 10.

The Ace card has a value of 1 or 11.

To start you receive 2 cards and may receive up to 9 more cards as you try to get as close to 21 as you can.

If players tie with the dealer they receive their bets for that round back. This is known as a push.

The International Blackjack League is based on European Blackjack where only a single deck of 52 cards, with no Jokers allowed, is used.

Some blackjack terminology:

  • To Stand: the player is satisfied with his/her hand and does not want any more cards to be dealt.
  • To Hit: the player asks for another card to be dealt.
  • Split: when players get two cards of equal value on the first deal they have the option to split them, allowing the player to play two hands at the same time and doubling the player’s bets.
