Black Jack

Vingt-et-un as french noblemen called is the most widely played casino banking game in the world and much of blackjack's popularity is because it has an ideal mix of chance and skill.  The object of the game is to have your cards total 21 or as near to 21 as possible without going over.

In Blackjack at a casino, the dealer faces one to seven players from behind an arc-shaped table. Each player plays his hand independently against the dealer. At the beginning of each round, the player places a bet in the "betting box" and receives an initial hand of two cards. The object of the game is to get a higher card totaling than the dealer's hand, but without going over 21, which is called "busting",or "breaking", with a number 2 to 10 printed on them count as that value; the jack, queen, and king (also known as "face cards") count as 10; the ace card can be either 1 or 11 according to the player's choice. The player goes first and plays his hand by taking additional cards if he desires. If he goes over 21 points, he "busts" and automatically loses the hand and his bet. Then the dealer plays his or her hand. If the dealer busts, he loses to all remaining players who have cards whose values are equal to or below 21. If neither busts, the higher hand total wins. If a player ties with the dealer the hand is a "push" and the player's bet is returned. It is possible for the dealer to lose to some players but still beat other players in the same round
