Blackjack : Game Tips & Strategies


BLACKJACK:
A hand consisting of an Ace and a 10-value card (10, Jack, Queen or King) totalling 21. Pays 3-2.

BROKE or BUST:
Going over '21' with additional cards drawn to the original hand.

HARD TOTAL:
A hand with no Aces or where the Ace is counted as '1.' For example, a nine-eight combination counts as a hard '17'.

HIT or DRAW:
Adding a card to your hand in an effort to come closer to 21, without going over.

INSURANCE:
When the dealer shows an Ace as the upcard, you can bet up to one-half the amount of your original wager that the dealer has a Blackjack. Insurance pays 2-1 if the dealer does, in fact, have blackjack. If he doesn't, the house collects the insurance bet.

NATURAL:
A Blackjack dealt with the original two cards. An ace and a face card.

PUSH:
Player and dealer tie. The money bet is retained by the player.

SOFT TOTAL:
A hand with an Ace that counts as an '11'. For example, an Ace-8 combination counts as a soft '19.

STAND:
The player doesn't want any more cards and so 'stands' with the cards he has.

STIFF:
A hand that could go bust by adding one more card. For example any hard 12-16 combination is a stiff.

UPCARD:
The face up card in the dealer's original hand.
