What is Black Jack?

Black Jack can be played at casino or with friends. Black Jack pay outs one and a half of your bet. There is no commission gathered by the casino when the hand is won.

The game is to be played with a dealer. Normally, the casino is the dealer. It can waive the dealership and give the player the dealership.

The game rule is nearest to 21. Black Jack can be played with either one deck or five decks. There are assigned numbers to some of the cards. The face cards which are jack, queen, king is valued at 10. All others are valued at the same except for the ace which can either be 1 or 11.

For example: 7 and 7 is 14. Ace and 8 is equal to 9 or 19. King and 6 is equal to 16. An ace and a King is equal to 21 or 11, but since the game rule is nearest to 21, the choice of the ace equivalent must be 11 with these kind of hands.
