After that, each of the players is given the opportunity to make a ‘hit’, that is, take another card in the hope of improving their hand. In addition, a player may choose to play “stay” and not draw any extra cards, this is also sometimes referred to as a pass.
The blackjack bonus is exactly where this game gets its name from. Blackjack is when the first two cards that the player (or the dealer) receives are an ace and a picture card, which equals 21. On average, this lucky hand will be dealt about once every 20 hands. Blackjack guarantees that the player wins the hand, and also gives a payout of 3: 2 instead of the standard 1: 1, if the dealer does not have blackjack at the same time as the player. In the case of a draw, all the chips that the player has placed on this hand will remain in the box and the hand will be considered a draw.
Split pairs is a situation that can occur in the first round of a game if a player has a hand of two identical cards. If this happens, then the player can choose to split these cards into two different hands and play each one separately. However, it will be necessary to make another bet on the second hand, and depending on the casino, the player will be able to make several splits in a row, up to 3 or 4, if he continues to get the same cards. The exception to this rule will be two aces, to which the player can take only one additional card after the split.
Double is doubling the bet on your first two cards. However, it is worth remembering that when you use this option, you can only draw one more card after the bet.
Sarrender is when you decide not to continue playing with a bad hand before you even draw another card. Not all casinos allow players to take advantage of this option. If you choose a surrender, you are giving away half of your original bet, but in some cases it may be better than losing everything.
Insurance is offered if the dealer gets an ace open. You can deposit half of your original bet as insurance in case the dealer collects blackjack. Insurance will be paid to you at a 2: 1 odds if the dealer actually hits the blackjack. However, experienced gamblers consider this bet to be meaningless and do not recommend making it (unlike casinos), so if you are offered insurance, politely refuse.
