How to Play
At the start of the game, you and the dealer will both be dealt two cards each.
Continue drawing cards until your hand reaches 21 or is as close to 21 as possible:
Blackjack is when your initial two cards contain an Ace and a 10 or picture card - this is the best hand possible and will always beat non-blackjack 21's.
If your hand exceeds 21, it will 'bust' and lose, regardless of the dealer's hand.
If your hand is worth the same as the dealer’s, you'll receive your bet back - however, if either hand includes an Ace and a picture card, that hand wins.
The dealer must draw if their hand totals 16 or less; they must 'stand' if their hand totals 17 or more.
If the dealer’s first card is an Ace, you can buy Insurance to try and protect your hand.
The Insurance bet is priced at half of your original wager.
Insurance will only cover your original wager; it doesn't cover your bet if you choose to Double Down.
