Blackjack is without doubt by far one of the most popular card gambling in casinos. The reason for this is that players can make many decisions and you do not have to rely solely on just your luck. In fact, blackjack is the most complex casino game but is still very easy to learn and play. If you would like to try this game yourself but have never played it before, you can learn all the blackjack rules on this page in no time.
The Blackjack game by Gamevy is very straightforward and easy to play and is played with 8 standard decks of 52 cards. This ultimately makes the game very exciting and fast paced.
Blackjack: selecting a chip & placing a bet
To begin the game, the player will need to select a suitable chip. At the bottom right-hand corner of the game screen, there are chips of different values. The value of each chip represents the currency the player is using. For example, a chip with a value of 0.1, represents 0.1 dollars.
To select the chip size to bet, the player starts by clicking a chip that is found in the Chip Selection area. If arrows are showing to the left and right of the chips, the player will need to click them to see additional chip values that they can bet with. The player can also view more chip sizes simply by clicking the arrows that are showing. To increase the bet, the player will need to click the bet they want to increase. The chip pile will increase by the chip size that is currently selected.
To play the Blackjack game by Gamevy, each player only plays against the dealer for himself and his cards. The value of the cards is very simple. All numbers on the cards have exactly the same value and the face cards Jack, Queen and King count for 10 points. The only special feature is the ace, which counts as either 1 or 11 points.
The aim of this game is for the player to get as close to 21 points as possible with their cards and to have more points than the dealer. A player may repeat this as many times as he or she likes so long as the total of their cards is less than 21. If the total surpasses 21, it is called a 'bust,' and the player automatically loses.
It is vital that the player does not exceed the 21 points. In this case, they will immediately lose their bet. If they win against the dealer, they will then receive the appropriate payout.
Once the players have placed their bets, the dealer starts handing out the cards. First, each player gets an open card, then the dealer gives himself an open card. Afterward, all players receive a second open card, the second card of the dealer remains hidden at first.
The player can now decide the next step based on the two starting cards for one of four different moves: Hit, Stand, Double or Split. However, if the dealer's first card is an ace, then the player can opt for "insurance against a blackjack." For this, the player must bring an additional bet of the same amount and place it on the "Insurance Line." If the dealer pulls a blackjack, the player wins the insurance bet. But if the dealer fails to get blackjack, this means the insurance bet is lost.
When all winnings have been paid out and lost bets have been withdrawn, the dealer announces the start of the next round of play.

Double - Doubles initial bet. The player may double the bet after viewing the first two cards. Only one additional card is dealt to complete the hand after doubling. It is also possible to Double after a Split, (except after splitting two aces).
Split – Divides the cards into two different hands. If a player is then dealt two cards of the same value (including two of the same face cards), there is a choice to 'split' the cards and double the initial bet. Only one split is allowed.
