These two ways can help you out in winning the game of Blackjack. The first one way to win at a blackjack table is to end up with a hand that has a total value higher than the hand of the dealer without going over 21. The second way of winning is to bust the dealer, by totaling over 21. Anytime the dealer exceeds the total of 21, any player still remaining in the hand that has not been busted is a winner.
Blackjack is played on an arch-shaped table at a casino and the dealer is confronted to the seven players. Each player plays his hand autonomously against the dealer. At the commencement 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. Cards from 2 to 10 the value printed on them count as that value and the jack, queen, and king also count as 10. But 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 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" which means he will not either lose anything or gain 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.
