Combine strategy with luck when you play online blackjack. The goal of blackjack involves building a hand that comes as close to a total of twenty-one points without exceeding twenty-one as possible. Blackjack begins when you lay your bet and receive two cards. Total the sum of the two cards — aces equal either one or eleven points while picture cards equal ten points and all other cards are valued at face value. You then have the choice of taking additional “hits” — receiving more cards — or “standing.” You can continue to ask for more hits as many times as you want but if you exceed 21 you’ll “go bust” and lose your bet. When you’ve finished building your hand, it’s the bank’s turn to build a hand. After both you and the dealer are finished you’ll compare hands. The hand with the highest point value of 21 or under wins real money.
