What Does Color Up Mean in Blackjack?

Color Up in Blackjack

Blackjack is a card game that pits the player against the dealer. The object is to get as close to 21 as possible, by drawing cards and playing them until you hit a blackjack.

The closer you are to 21, the more points you score.

The dealer also has a hand of cards, and each Ace and 10 counts as one point. The dealer starts with a 2, 3, or 4, and any subsequent card counts as either an Ace or a 10. The player then drAWS cards until they have four.

If they have two Aces, they automatically win the hand. If they don’t have an Ace but do have a 10, they must beat the dealer’s hand by counting their points (plus any wildcards) against the dealer’s total of 21 (without wildcards).

The value of each card is as follows: 2s through 10s are worth face value; Aces are worth 1 point; and Jacks through Queens are worth 0 points. For example, if the player drAWS a 2 and an 8, their total point score would be 4 (2 + 8 = 10), since 2s through 10s are worth face value and Aces are worth 1 point.

If the player drAWS another 2 after that, their total score would be 12 (2 + 8 = 10; 2 + 6 = 10).
