Spirit Mountain Casino Presents: Blackjack 101

November 7, 2013

Background

Classified as a “comparative” card game, Blackjack is a game where players only compete with the dealer, and not with the other players at the table. To win at Blackjack, you have to be familiar with its motto: “Beat the dealer!”

The Goal

You want to beat the dealer’s hand without going over a value of 21. If you exceed the value of 21, you automatically lose. Cards 2-10 all have numeric values: for instance, a “5 of spades” is worth five points. Face cards have a value of 10, and the ace has a value of either one or 11.

How it Works

Dealers shuffle between one and eight standard 52-card decks together. They give each player two cards, which are dealt face-up. From here, you have a few options. Players can “stand,” which means that they don’t take any additional cards. Alternatively, you can “Hit” and take another card. Finally, you might “Bust.” This means that your value went over 21, giving you an automatic loss.

Results

If you achieve 21 points from your first two cards, then you get “Blackjack” and are deemed the winner. You can also win by having a hand that is higher in value than the dealer’s… Just be careful that it doesn’t exceed 21!

Blackjack is a simple and exciting game that is guaranteed to make your visit to Spirit Mountain a thrilling experience. Armed with these tips, you can become the master of the table.
