Blackjack also known as “21” is the most popular table game in the casino. In the game of Blackjack, players play against the dealer but not against the other players. The objective of blackjack is to stay under 21 while having a score higher than the dealer.
The players are dealt a two-card hand and add together the value of their cards. Face cards (kings, queens, and jacks) are counted as ten points. Ace are counted as 1 point or 11 points dependent apon what gives the player or dealer the highest combine card score under 21. All other cards are counted as the numeric value shown on the card. After receiving their first two cards, players have the option of getting a “hit”, or taking an additional card, “splitting”, dividing two like card into separate hands, “doubling down”, doubling players bet but only receiving one card and “staying”, leaving the hand dealt as is. In a given round, the player or the dealer wins instantly by having a score of 21 with the initial two cards dealt or by having the higher score that is less than 21. Scoring higher than 21 is called a “bust” results in a loss. A player may win by having any final score equal to or less than 21 if the dealer busts.
The dealer must hit until the cards total 17 or more points. (At many tables the dealer also hits on a “soft” 17, i.e. a hand containing an ace and one or more other cards totaling six.) Players win by not busting and having a total higher than the dealer’s. The dealer loses by busting or having a lesser hand than the player who has not busted. If the player and dealer have the same total, this is called a “push”, and the player typically does not win or lose money on that hand. If all available players bust, the hand ends automatically without the dealer having to play his or her hand.
In the game of roulette, players may choose to place bets on either a single number or a range of numbers, the colors red or black, or whether the number is odd or even, or if the numbers are high (19–36) or low (1–18).To determine the winning number and color, a dealer spins a wheel in one direction, then spins a ball in the opposite direction. The ball eventually onto the wheel and into one of 38 colored and numbered pockets on the wheel. If the player had the bet on the winning number, color, high, low, even and odd the player wins the appropriate odds. All other bets lose and the game restarts.
