A classic card game that’s played directly with the dealer. You win by making a hand that has a value of closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand without exceeding 21. You can also win if the dealer’s hand goes over 21 (bust). The game is played with six decks of cards – all cards take their face value, royal cards are valued at ten and you can decide whether the ace is high or low. The best possible hand is an ace and a ten – blackjack – paying 3 to 2 on the original stake; other wins pay at 1 to 1.
