Black Jack is the casino version of the well known ‘twenty-one' card game. The objective is to beat the bank. You will win if you have more points than the bank, but you cannot exceed 21 points. You play Black Jack with chips. You buy chips by putting money on the table and then the croupier gives you chips. If you put your bet on the uppermost circle with the double line, you are the player and can choose whether you want to be dealt cards or not. If you put your bet on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th circle you are playing along with the player on the uppermost circle. You can place chips until the croupier says "No more bets, please!" He sweeps his arm over the table, and from that moment your bet is final. The croupier will now start dealing the cards. Card values: King, Queen, Jack = 10 points; Ace = 1 of 11 points, and 2 - 10 = face value of the card. Every player seated at the table receives 2 cards. The croupier reads out the number of points and asks if you want to ‘buy' (hit) or ‘pass' (stand). You use hand signals to indicate what you want to do. The gesture for ‘hit' is a sweeping movement toward yourself. The gesture for ‘stand' is a movement from left to right and back again. You can continue to buy or pass until you reach 21 points. The dealer starts with 1 card. Once all the players have been dealt 2 cards and made decisions for optional additional cards the dealer gets a second card. The bank must continue to play until it has a minimum of 17 points. Once it has reached 17 points or more the dealer has to pass. If you hit Black Jack (21 points with your first 2 cards), you will win 1½ times your bet. If the bank also has Black Jack your bet will simply remain in place. If you have fewer than 21 points but more than the bank, you will double your bet. If you have the same number of points as the bank (17 – 21) and the game is undecided your bet will remain in place. If you have more than 21 points the bank will win your bet. If the bank has more than 21 points all the players who still have chips on the table will double their bet. Your winnings will be placed next to your original bet. You can remove your winnings from the table or use them to continue playing.
