Blackjack, also known as Twenty-One or Pontoon is an extremely popular, exciting and simple casino game to play.
Players play against the dealer aiming for a hand of cards with a higher total value than that of the dealer, without going over 21. Kings, Queens, Jacks and Tens are worth a value of 10. An Ace has the value of 1 or 11. The remaining cards are counted at face value.

HOW TO PLAY BLACKJACK
- Place a bet on the betting area of the table.
- Players are dealt two cards each, while the dealer is dealt one facing upwards.
- Decide whether you wish to “draw” or “stay” based on the value of cards you hold. You can continue to draw until you are satisfied with your hand.
- Once all players have taken their turn the dealer draws another card for their hand. If the dealers’ cards total 16 or less they must continue to draw until 17 or more is reached.
