Blackjacking!
Blackjacking! Blackjack is one of the most popular card games on the planet ever since its humble gambling days. The concept of blackjack is simple – to get a total card value of twenty – one (21). How? Once the dealer hands you down a pair of cards, try to add the values. If the sum gives you a twenty one amigo you’re a lucky one. You can shout “blackjack!” However, if not cross your fingers and start praying that you card values are near but not over 21 and higher than any other players including the dealer. How to count in a blackjack? Numbered cards take their value except for an ace. On the other hand, royalty cards have ten as it values. Now lets go back to the ace, to illustrate clearly here are some examples. First, my two initial cards are Jack of Hearts and Ace of Spades, if we count there values it will be eleven right? Ten + One = Eleven. However, in this case my ace is referred as a soft card. Meaning it could have a value of eleven. Thus I won this round. Second, my two initial cards, are two aces then obviously I could have a value of twenty-two or a two. Then I asked for another card, luckily I ended up with a nine. So let’s count 9 + 1 + 11 = 21. Why? An ace could also have the value of one that’s why. This time the ace, which has a value of 1 is referred as hard card. Oh well that is luck in progress! Statisticians tried and came up with the so-called winning strategies. To be honest there are quite number of blackjack players who had earned a living by playing and sitting down. This event alarms most casinos. Therefore, in order to avoid profit loss they used more than one deck of cards typically 2 -10 (decks) which they call it a shoe. Now listen casinos made profit not just by playing blackjack there are also so-called side bettings. Here are some to name a few. Triple 7′s = If you get a seven, you get paid equal to your bet. If two 7′s you get thrice your bet and finally you get another 7 you get paid seven times. Blackjack! 6, 7, 8 = if you get all this you get paid twice your bet. Blackjack! 9,A,A = if you get this combination you get paid 6 times. Blackjack! If you those cards in your first three rounds, would you still play or move out? Again listen different casinos have different blackjack rules. So it will be better to observe first before playing blackjack. Enjoy blackjacking!
