A Beginner's Guide to Playing Blackjack, Springdale, Ohio

One of the most popular games played in casinos is blackjack, also sometimes referred to as 21. The rules are simple, the pace is faster than other card games, and the player controls the betting, making it fun and accessible for everyone from casual gamblers to heavy betters. Here, Black Diamond Casino Events, a leading party planning service and casino rentals provider in Cincinnati, OH, offers a tutorial about blackjack for beginners.

Casino Rental Service’s Guide to Blackjack

Rules of the Game

Blackjack can be played by up to seven players plus a dealer. At the start of the round, the players place their bets before being dealt one card. Each card is face up from the dealer’s left to right, with the dealer getting a card last. All players receive a second card still face up, while the dealer gets one face down.

If the players feel that their hands are too low, they can get another card on the next turn, known as a “hit.” If they are comfortable with their total, they can “stand,” which means they won’t take another card. The dealer, meanwhile, has to stand on 17 or higher or take a card until he reaches that number. If the dealer gets the same total as the player, the game is a standoff, and the bet is returned.

Strategy for Beginners

While some count cards to win, this is a complicated system that can get you thrown out of a casino. Fortunately, there are other effective fundamental strategies. For instance, you should stand when you get a hand of 12 to 16 if the dealer gets two to six, but hit if the dealer has a seven and an ace. An ace and eight should always be “split,” which means you play two separate hands for that round. With an ace and six combination, you can either hit or double down.

These are just some of the basic tips you can use while playing blackjack. If you need casino rentals for an event, get in touch with Black Diamond Casino Events.
