The Basics of Electronic Blackjack
Players use chips to bet on the outcome of a hand of blackjack. The game is played with a deck of 52 cards and two decks of face-down jokers. The dealer flips over the first card, which becomes the card face up in the middle of the table. The player then flips over the top card of their deck, and this becomes their current total (ace through deuce).
The player can then either keep the current total, or add another chip to the bet if they believe that the next card is higher than their current total. If they are correct, then they receive whatever money was placed in the bet plus any bonus awards that have been awarded. If they are incorrect, then they lose everything that was wagered.
One common strategy in blackjack is “busting.” This involves taking another card that is higher than your current total, which would result in you either doubling your money or winning the hand outright.
There are also “pit bosses” who will give out bonuses for certain combinations (such as aces full of jacks), so it is important to know what those bonuses are before playing.
