Blackjack Single Deck Game Tutorial

The following rules apply in Blackjack Single Deck:

  • The card values are as follows: the numbered cards 2-10 are worth their face value, aces count as 1 or 11; and the jack, queen, and king count as 10 points
  • The hand closest to 21 points wins
  • All hands of 22 points or above loses (Bust)
  • In Blackjack Single Deck one hand of the dealer will be dealt open, the other face down.
  • You have a Blackjack when your first two cards are 21 points, this consists of an Ace and a 10 point card.
  • A Blackjack always beats a hand of 21 points
  • A hard hand is a hand without an Ace, or an Ace that can only count as 1.
  • A soft hand is a hand with an Ace in which the Ace can count as 1 or 11 points without a bust
  • When the dealer gets a hard 17, no extra cards may be drawn; when the dealer gets a soft 17 he must draw a card
  • When a draw occurs, you get your bet back.


When the first cards are 10 or 11 points in total, you may double. In that case you will get one extra card. The double bet is the same as the initial bet.


Two cards in one hand that have the same value may be split into separate two hands. In all split hands, except Aces, you may draw multiple cards. When you get an ace and a 10 point card in a split hand, this will not count as a Blackjack. By splitting you double your initial bet. You play these hands one by one.


You have an option to take insurance in Blackjack Single Deck. You can do this when the visible card of the dealer is an ace. An insurance costs extra money, half of the initial bet to be precise. When the dealer does have a blackjack, this will pay 2:1.
