How to Play Blackjack
If your first two cards total 21 exactly (any 10 value cards
plus an ace), you have "Blackjack" and win one-and-a-half times the
money you bet. If the dealer also "Blackjacks," it's
a "push" and nobody wins.
When the dealer has an ace showing, the player has the option to take
“insurance” - a protection bet - by placing up to half of his original
bet in the insurance square. If the dealer has Blackjack, you win the
insurance bet. However, you lose the insurance bet if he doesn’t have
Blackjack. This bet pays 2-to1.
Doubling Down - If you feel your first two-card total will only
take a single card draw to beat the dealer, you may make an additional
bet or "double down." You will receive only one additional card.
Splitting - If your first two cards are a pair, you can "split"
them into two hands by matching the amount of your original bet on
each hand. After splitting your may double down or you can draw as
many cards as you want to each hand. When splitting Aces,
you can draw only one additional card per hand.
