How To Play
When joining the table, player needs to take one of the seven seats available. If none available then player can choose to bet behind one of the active players. Player can also occupy several seats if available.
Before the start of the game, player set a wager before the previously set time limit. This is done by clicking on one of the five buttons. Player can only wager on side bets if the main bet is placed first. Every player hand receives two cards, and a option to choose his next step. Hit, Stand, Double Down or Split. The dealer also deals himself two cards and only one card is visible to the player.
Hitting means the dealer will give the player another card while standing means that the player is satisfied with the combination and don’t want more cards.
Doubling Down can be played on any initial two cards and for both Splits and Doubles an additional wager is required.
After deciding for all hands by the player, the round goes on and the dealer will reveal the hidden second card and if the face down card is below seventeen, dealer keeps drawing. If either of the player or dealer goes above 21, they lose the round. Otherwise the one that is closest to 21 wins the round. However the other players on the table do not impact on this battle as it is between the house and every player individually.
