How to Play Blackjack – The Basics


Hi, my name’s Martin from Claremonts.com. What i’m going to do here, is
I’m gonna show and explain to you, how to play Blackjack.
All the rudiments of the game, all the little things that you need to know like splitting and doubling
and we’re gonna have some lovely hand examples to help you to learn the
game with us.
In the game of Blackjack,
what you’re trying to do is you’re trying to get closer to 21 than the house,
The good news is that you get the choice
in making decisions, the house doesn’t.
The house will always, as it says on the
table here, will always have to draw cards to 17
and will always have to stand
on any total of 17 and above. By contrast,
you yourself can choose when to take a
card and when to stand.
There are some other scenarios that we’ll go
through in some example hands here,
where you can increase your bets and
potentially increase
your winnings. These are called splitting,
when a matching pair is
split and you create new hands and new
chances to win and also doubling down,
when your total of your first two cards is
less than eleven, you have there have the
opportunity to, what you
call, maybe buy a card, double down
one card only where you double your initial bet
and you get just the one more card and
hopefully you double your winnings,
You’ll see examples of this in the hands that
follow. Now the aim of the game, the
perfect hand,
is a Blackjack. A Blackjack is an ace with a
10 value card,
which gives you a total of 21 in two cards,
which will beat
any other hand and the really good news
is with a Blackjack, you don’t get paid
double,
you get paid 3/2. Have a look through the example
hands
and learn the game with us.
