The object of the Black Jack, or Twenty-one , is to reach a total of 21 points or approach them without passing that limit.

The Aces count as 1 or 11, as it suits you; the figures as 10, and the other letters, their nominal value.

If you do not have Black Jack, decide for your hand if you want to ask or not ask for more cards, with the idea of ??getting closer to 21 than the croupier; if you go over 21, you have lost your bets, even if the croupier goes too.

The croupier to reach 17 points should be planted, not taking additional cards. Otherwise, you must ask for other cards until your total score reaches 17 or more.

When the dealer has an Ace among his cards, he must count it as eleven points if with this value he reaches 17 or more, and provided he does not count with more than 21 points, in which case the value of 1 point will be taken.

If the croupier had gone over 21 points, he will pay all the bets that are still on the mat; If you do not have 21 points, you will collect bets that have a score lower than yours and will pay those that have it higher.

The hands of the same score will be null.

Black Jack consists of an Ace with a 10 and wins any other combination, except when the croupier draws Black Jack. The posture is paid 3 to 2.


When the first card of the croupier is an Ace, the players will be able to make sure against the possible Black Jack of the bank. The croupier will propose this insurance to all the players and before giving the third card to the first player who asks for it. From this moment nobody will be able to make sure.

The insuring player will deposit on the “safe” line in front of his position an amount at most equal to half of his original bet. If the croupier takes out Black Jack, the insurance will be paid 2-1; if not, the player will lose the insurance.

If your first two cards total 9, 10 or 11, you can double your bet and only take one card. If your first two cards have the same value, you can play two hands.

If you use this possibility, you must make a bet equal to your initial bet on the other card. When a player separates a pair of Aces, it will not be allowed to request more than a single card for each Ace that has formed a new hand. If I obtained a 10 or figure, it will be counted as 21 and not as Black Jack.
