Blackjack Game Rules

Similarly there is a rule variation whereby the player automatically wins when drawing 7 cards without busting which is called a “Seven Card Charlie”. You would normally collect $15 for this, unless the dealer also has a blackjack in which case you push or tie. Let’s assume that the dealer has an Ace up, and you decide to take insurance for the full amount allowed of $5. Many players think this sounds like a good deal, guaranteeing a profit even if the dealer has a blackjack. You will win more money in the long run by holding out for the full $15 payout when the dealer does not have blackjack, even though you will sometimes end up empty-handed. Remember there are more 10 value cards than any other cards in the deck—so when a 10 will get you close to 21 and you are against a card that is bad for the dealer, you should double.

Obviously 10 buy-ins would be $50 for you and $200 for the prize fund. If you are playing nickel-dime-quarter stakes, any chips are fine, but if you want to hold a party where hundreds of dollars are changing hands you should invest in your own chips. Choose real personalized chips to be safe– or get actual chips from a local casino that can be returned after your party. The good part of home games is that players tend to greatly over-bet their bankroll. If they buy-in for $100 and you allow higher wagers, you’ll get some $10 and even $25 bets. It’s easy to bust a player who only has a bankroll of a few units, but you still have to have a higher bankroll of your own.

You can go to the closest land-based casino to where you live or travel to a major gambling destination like Las Vegas or Atlantic City.

If the dealer does not have a natural, he immediately pays the players who do have a natural 1 1/2 times the player’s bet. If the dealer has a natural, he collects all the bets from players who don’t have a natural. If a dealer and player both have a natural, the player takes back his bet. The dealer can peek at the face down card only if the face up card is a 10 or an ace to see if he has a natural. Otherwise, the card remains face down until the dealer’s turn.

If the casino then “busts” on the same hand, the player still loses. Most casinos will not allow “cash plays” wagers anymore, so you will have to let the dealer exchange your money for casino chips. You do this by simply walking up to the table a placing your money on the felt of the table. Do not hand your money to the dealer (they won’t take it).

Don’t expect casinos on the Vegas Strip to offer these rules any longer, however, unless you’re playing at high-limit tables. These games are more common online and at small casinos that focus on locals. Yet, the game has many other versions with their own subtle rules changes. Many casinos play by the traditional 21 rules that were once popular on the Las Vegas Strip, which is traditionally called American 21 Or Vegas Rules. This is considered one of the more “liberal” blackjack games.
