For people who have never competed in chemin de fer on the net before here’s a tip, black jack is extremely simple to pickup. If you understand how to count to twenty-one and do basic arithmetic, you can take part in blackjack. The goal of the game is to arrive as near to twenty-one as you can and not exceeding 21. Basic enough right? Now here is how a hand is played.

The blackjack croupier will give you a card one at a time. After looking at the cards you have to then decide if you can manage to take an additional card without having a high chance of exceeding twenty-one. It will help if you know that face cards (J,Q,K) are all worth ten points, and ace is worth either 11 points or one point, whichever helps you out the most.

So how do you succeed? If you understand the point then you can win. All you need to do is to get your cards be as close to twenty one as possible without going over, if you exceed 21 then you automatically lose. You are able to also not loose by achieving the same hand value as the blackjack dealer.

Now that you are aware of the rules of black jack you have to know the dialect. If you get into a bind, simply tell the croupier, "I’m out" or "I surrender" you will then be able to quit the game with half your wager on the table instead of your complete bet. If you inform the croupier, "I would like to double down" this will double your wager under the stipulation that you must succeed at the hand after the next card is given to you.

That is all there is to the game. Blackjack is an awesome game to get your feet wet in the world of online gambling seeing that the regulations are so easy to understand.
