Whether you are new to casino betting or a betting house old-timer, chemin de fer is one of the simplest and most exciting games casinos have to offer. The objective in black jack is to defeat the dealer by acquiring a hand as close to twenty one as possible while not exceeding 21. To gamble on black jack, you simply need a basic understanding of the rules and a ambition to experience excitement.

So how do you achieve twenty one? In blackjack, the cards have values. Number cards two through ten are valued at face value, while every face cards (King, Queen and Jack) are valued at ten points. The ace card is a unique card in chemin de fer: you deduce whether it’s worth 1 or eleven points. Since casino gamblers are given 2 cards to begin, if you get an ace and a face card or ten,you’ve achieved 21-an immediate success, as long as the croupier doesn’t get 21 as well. This two-card winning hand is called a "blackjack"; hence the name of the game!

Casino game rules for black jack are essentially the same at all betting houses. After you are given your first 2 cards, your choices are to take another card, stand, double down, split your hand into 2 hands with a second wager equal to the first, or occasionally give up.

When you wager on black jack at a casino, make certain to know which table to pick. Most betting houses have color coded twenty-one tables coinciding with the min. wager the table accepts, normally 3 dollars, $5, twenty-five dollars or 100 dollars. In any casino, it is a given the 3 dollar and 5 dollar tables will be bursting, but they are great for beginners at casino games because all of the cards are given out face-up, instead of the 1up, 1down way at higher tables. So the next instanceor the initial time-you visit a betting house, be sure to visit the blackjack tables and target for twenty one!
