In addition to roulette, Black Jack is probably the most played casino game in the world. It is the casino version of twenty-one well-known in Dutch living rooms.
Maybe the card game Black Jack does not tell you so much, but you've probably heard of 'twenty-one'. Black Jack has a lot of it. Also at Black Jack it's about getting twenty-one points, with cards. If you are closer to the twenty-one points than the bank, but do not have more than twenty-one points, you have won.
Black Jack is the casino version of the well-known card game twenty-one. The goal is to win the bank. You win if you have more points than the bank, but not more than 21.
You play Black Jack with value chips. You can exchange at the croupier or at the checkout. You get value chips by putting money on the table. Then the croupier gives you value chips
If you bet on the top circle with the double line, then you are the player and you can choose whether or not you want cards. If you bet on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th circle, you play along with the player who bets on the top circle.
Stakes are allowed until the croupier says: "Do not bet more." He makes a swinging arm movement across the table. From that moment on your bet is final. Then he starts sharing the cards.
King, Queen, Jack: 10 points Ace: 1 or 11 points 2 to 10: own point value
Each seated player receives 2 cards. The croupier says the number of points and asks if you want to 'buy' or apply. With hand gestures you indicate what you want. The gesture for buying is a swipe gesture towards your own seat. The gesture for passing is a movement from left to right and back again. You can buy or apply up to 21 points.
The bank starts with 1 card. After all players have taken their turn, the bank receives a second card. The bank must continue playing until he has at least 17 points. The bank must fit at 17 points or more.
If you have Black Jack (21 points with your first 2 cards), you win 1.5x your bet. If the bank also has Black Jack, your bet will remain. If you have less than 21 points, but more than the bank, you win 1x your bet. If you have as many points as the bank (17 to 21), the game is undecided and your bet remains. If you have more than 21 points, the bank will win your bet. If the bank has more than 21 points, all players who still have a bet on the table win 1x their bet.
Perfect Pairs is an exciting addition to the well-known Black Jack. If you have placed a bet on one of the rings, you can also play with Perfect Pairs. You then place a second bet in the column next to the rings. With Perfect Pairs you can - in addition to the usual Black Jack payouts - win three extra jackpots: • Mixed pair: pays 6: 1 (for example a black woman with a red woman) • Color pair: pays 12: 1 (for example 2 red kings) • Perfect pair: pays 25: 1 (for example 2 hearts tens)
The Black Jack sidebet 21 + 3 is a sidebet (an extra betting option) where the outcome of the original hand (the first two cards of the box / player) and the card of the bank are played. There are four win options on this sidebet
The dealer has both cards facing down.
Super21 begins with the player being dealt 2 cards. The dealer shows 1 card facing up and the other one facing down. Players can Hit, Stand or Double.
• Hitting: a card will be dealt to the initial two card hand; be sure not to go over 21 as this results in losing the turn instantly.
• To Stand means to play the hand as it is without asking for extra cards or adding bets.
• Doubling increases your bet and also adds a card to your 2 card combo, in Super 21 you can double once anytime.
Match Play 21 is an interesting variation on the classic 21 game. But now all 10’s have been removed from the deck.
• When you Split, it means you are using your first 2 cards separately into creating 2 new hands that increase your shots at victory; this is applicable for same value pairs or high cards.
• Doubling adds an extra bet, in Match Play 21 this is allowed at any time during game play.
• Last option is Surrender that automatically discharges your hand and makes the player lose immediately with a 50% charge on his bet amount.
Both hands are dealt facing up so you can actually see what the dealer has right up front. Players can double their bets even after choosing the Split option; double is allowed on hand totals of 9, 10 or 11. If your hand is good enough against the dealer you can Stand meaning no extra cards will be dealt nor will any extra bets be allowed.
Now it’s all about 3 types of combinations.
1. The Perfect Pair is a 2 card combo in which both cards are equally ranked and suited. Example: 2 Queens of Hearts.
2. Next stop is the Mixed Pair in which both cards are ranked the same but suited differently (one card is red, the other one is black).
3. Last but not least, the Colored Pair, meaning 2 cards of the same rank and same color. Example: Two Kings of Hearts of Two Kings of Spades. If the resulting first 2 dealt cards are not a pair, the perfect pair side bet is lost.
