A 21st century take on a game of 21

Description

The goal of the game is to receive a hand of cards with a total value of as close to 21 as possible, without exceeding 21. The player wins the game round if the value is closer to 21 than the dealer’s, and loses if the dealer’s hand is closer to 21 than the player’s. In case of a tie, the bet is returned. Aces count as either 1 or 11, and Kings, Queens and Jacks as 10. All other cards retain their face values. The special combination of an Ace plus a ten-valued card constitutes a Blackjack.

The player is dealt two cards for each participating hand. The dealer is dealt one card initially. The player may then add more cards to each hand. If the total value of a player’s hand exceeds 21, that hand has automatically lost, and is immediately removed from the table (a “bust”). When the player has finished adding cards, the dealer draws new cards until the dealer’s total value is 17 or more. Each of the player’s hands are then evaluated against the dealer’s hand. If all player’s hands bust, the game is immediately over.

Advanced Game Rules

Doubling

If the sum of the player’s first two cards is 9, 10 or 11, the player has the option of doubling down. Doubling places an additional bet on the hand, and a single new card is dealt, after which the hand is played. Doubling is done by pressing the DOUBLE button.

Splitting

If the player’s first two cards are of the same value, the player is offered the option to split the hand into two separate hands by pressing the SPLIT button. Splitting requires an additional bet for the split hand. A new card is automatically drawn to both hands. The player may then play each hand normally, requesting the desired amount of cards. If Aces are split, only one additional card is however allowed. A split hand may be doubled if the sum is 9-11. A split hand consisting of an Ace and a Ten is considered 21, not Blackjack.

Insurance

If the dealer’s card is an Ace, the player has the option to insure each hand against a dealer Blackjack. Insurance is offered separately for each hand, before the player performs any other action. If accepted, an insurance bet equal to half the hand bet is placed. When the dealer then draws the first card, the insurance bet is first settled. If the dealer received Blackjack, all insurance bets pay out 2 to 1. The original hand bets are then settled normally. If the dealer did not receive Blackjack, all insurance bets are lost. The game then continues normally.
