To play blackjack, you first have to understand the object of the game and learn the rules. The object of the game is to get a hand that is higher than the dealers, but you do not want to go over 21. You will need to know how to score your hand. The kings, queens, jacks, and 10s are all worth 10 points each. Aces can be either 11 or 1 and all the other cards are worth the number of the card, for example, a 5 is worth 5 points. You will ask the dealer for more cards one at a time so you can increase the value of your hand. You will automatically loose if you go over 21, so stop taking cards before you get there.
If you get 21, show your cards immediately. You will win the hand if you do not go over 21 and you have equal or more points than the dealer. At the casino, each table will have a sign with its minimum and maximum bets. Find a table that has a minimum bet in your price range. Sit down at a table and place your bet. Wait until all the players have placed their bets and the dealer has dealt everyone two cards.
An insurance bet is when you bet that the dealer has 21. You may want to place an insurance bet if the dealer has an ace. One of their cards will be face up. If they have 21, all bets are cleared from the table and it pays 2 to 1. If they do not have 21, the bet is lost. When the dealer comes to you, say hit me and tap on the table if you want another card. Or you can just say “yes.” If you do not want another card, either wave your hand or say “no.”
