The object of this version of American Blackjack is to hit the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. Aces count for either 1 or 11, face cards use their value. If you get an Ace and ten as your first two cards, you have Blackjack. If your total value is closer to 21 than the dealer, you win. If it’s less than the dealer, it’s a bust. If both have same card total, neither win and it’s called a push.
This game follows the standard “Las Vegas rules”, with its exceptions: After each round, the used cards are returned to the deck and then shuffled, the player may not split a split hand and the dealer draws an additional card when the total of the dealer’s cards is 16 or less and stands if the total is 17 or greater.
