Six Deck Blackjack Game Rules

Game objective:

The objective of Blackjack is to accumulate cards with total value as close to 21 as possible, without going over 21 (going bust). A hands value can be determined by adding all the cards in your hand together. The value assigned to cards is as follows:
• The cards from 2 through 10 are valued as indicated.
• Face cards (Jacks, Queens, and Kings) are all valued at 10 points.
• An Ace counts as 1 or 11. It is worth 11 unless that would cause hand value to exceed 21 bust, in which case it has a value of 1.
• Soft total: A hand containing an Ace that can be counted as 11 without the total going above 21. For example, Ace-6 is soft 17.
• Hard total: A hand containing an Ace that can be counted as only 1 because counting it as 11 would make the hand go over 21. For example, Ace-6-10 is hard 17. A tie between the player and the house is known as a push, and means that no one wins or loses. If the first two cards dealt are an Ace and any 10-point card, it is known as blackjack, and is an automatic win for the player at 1.5 to 1, unless the house ties.

How to Play

Your chips are stacked in denominations of $1, $5, $25 and $100 on middle of the table. Select the amount you want to wager on a given hand by clicking on the chip of that denomination. Then click on the place bet circle to place the chip there. Once the wager is placed, click on the Deal button. The Deal button will be enabled only if a bet is equal to or more than the minimum bet. The dealer deals you two cards face-up, and then deals himself two cards, one face-up and the other face-down. Depending on the strength of your cards, you can choose from the following options offered to you: Hit, Stand, Double Down, or Split, as per the game rules. If the dealer has a 10, Jack, Queen, King or Ace as his first card, he will check to see if he has a blackjack before you draw your third card. The INSURANCE option is offered to you in case the dealer has an Ace as his first card. Once either the player or the dealer stands or busts, the results are displayed in a bubble beside either the dealer's or the player's hand.

To continue the game with the same bet, click on the Re-Bet button. To place a new bet, click on the Change Bet button. This will take you back to the bet screen. Click on Surrender at any point to give up half of your bet and discard your cards. You may not surrender if Double Down is chosen first. Your game balance is displayed at the top right-hand side of the game screen. Click on? to view the game rules. To exit from the game, click on exit button in the top right corner.

Stand: Clicking on the Stand button will keep your hand at its current value. You may stand at any time, if you are satisfied with your hand. Click the Stand button, and when the dealer has completed his hand, they will be compared.

Hit: If you wish to take another card, you may continue to do so until you either stand or go bust. Click on Hit to be dealt the next card.

Double Down: If the first two cards dealt don't equal 21, an option to double will be displayed to you. Once this option is selected, the bet amount is automatically doubled, and you will be dealt one more card. The hand will auto-stand after the next card is dealt. Doubling is also available as an option after splitting. If your game balance is not sufficient for the additional bet, the double option will not be offered. If you lose the bet, you lose the entire bet amount, the initial bet, and the additional amount placed for the double option.

Split: If you have two cards of the same value (for example two 7s, two 10s, a King and a Jack, etc), you can click Split to split the cards into two separate hands. This option is also available if you are dealt two Aces as your first two cards. Once this option is selected, an additional bet (equal to your original bet) is automatically placed. You are only allowed to split once, even if more splitting opportunities arise. If the hand qualifies for a split, but your account balance is not sufficient for the additional bet, then the Split option will not be offered. You may draw as many cards as you wish on each split hand, with the exception of spliting on Aces. If you split Aces, only one card will be dealt to each split hand. If a 10-point card is dealt to either Ace, the hand is counted as 21, not blackjack.

Surrender: Surrender offers you as a player the choice to fold your hand, at the cost of half of the original bet. You must make the decision prior to taking any other action on the hand. For example, once you draw a third card, or Split, or Double Down, Surrender is no longer an option.
