Online Blackjack

The game of blackjack is one of the most popular card games in the world. Millions of people enjoy playing the blackjack game in live casinos but you can also play the blackjack card game on the Internet! If you are interested in playing a blackjack game online or in a live casino it’s easy to learn how.
The rules of the blackjack game are incredibly simple to learn. It is played against the dealer. The game begins with the dealer dealing out two cards to each player, face up on the table. The dealer takes two cards as well but placed one face up and one face down. The face down card will be revealed at the end of the game to determine the winners.
The object of the game is to obtain a hand which does not break 21 but is of a higher value than the dealer’s hand. You may choose to stand with your initial 2-card hand or to hit. If you hit, the dealer will give you additional cards in order to increase the value of your hand. Once you are satisfied with your hand you stand and the dealer reveals his face down card.
After the deck has been prepared, the dealer will distribute the cards to the players from the top of the deck. The dealer will begin distributing the cards starting with the player on the left, and he or she will proceed to give one card to each player, including providing the dealer with an up card. This motion will be repeated until each player has two cards in front of them. The last card dealt will go to the dealer, and this card will be hidden under the up card.
In some cases, the players will be permitted to handle the cards. If this is the case, the players will receive their cards face down, and they are allowed to pick them up with their hands. With this type of game, you should not use two hands to pick up the cards. Instead, you should pick up the cards with one hand and hold them over the table. In no case should the cards be removed from the table or shielded from the view of the dealer. The dealer must be able to ensure the security of the cards, and is responsible for making sure they are not replaced or tampered with.
Once all players have finished making their decisions the dealer reveals his hole card and, according to the blackjack table rules, draws additional cards or stands. The dealer doesn’t choose whether to hit or stand, and is bound by the rules of the table such as ‘Hit on Soft 17’ (which means there’s an Ace in his hand that can be considered as 1 or 11) or ‘Stand On All 17’s’ (in Atlantic City, for example, all dealers must stand on all 17’s). In any case if the dealer has less than a point total of 16 he must draw another card. If the dealer busts, then all the players still in the round win immediately. Bets are commonly paid out at ratios of 1:1.
