The player will place his/her wager in the betting box. The dealer will then deal two cards, face up, to each player and one to himself. Kings, Queens, Jacks, and 10’s each count as 10. Aces count as 1 or 11, all other cards 2-9, count at their face value.
If the first two cards drawn are an Ace and a 10 value card, that player has Blackjack and will be paid one and one-half times the wager (3 to 2) unless the dealer also has Blackjack. The Player not having Blackjack may continue to draw cards attempting to total as close to 21 as possible without exceeding 21, in which case that player “busts” and loses the wager.
Dealer must hit on all totals of 16 or less. Dealer must stand on all totals of 17 or more (although at some casinos, the dealer will hit on a soft 17 (ie. a hand containing an 'ace').
