Blackjack is one of the most popular table games in most casinos. The main appeal to is that it is a very easy to learn how to play blackjack. That being said, it takes time and practice to learn the best way to bet, when to fold, when to 'hit', etc. It is also unique in that the gambler plays against the dealer's cards, not against the cards of the other players at the table; assuming there are other players. All of these reasons make blackjack arguably the most popular casino table game, as well as one of the games with better odds against the house.
The goal of the game is simple, get as close to 21 as possible without going over. You, the dealer, and any other players are dealt two cards to play with initially. One card is face up, for the other players to see, while the second is face down and only for you to see. The numbered cards are valued at the corresponding number, and the ten card and all face cards hold a value of ten. The ace card has two value options: a value of 1, or a value of 11. Depending on the value of the first two cards you are allowed the option to 'hit', or receive another card. This is usually done when the value of the first two cards are not remotely close to 21. The 'hit' card is obtained in an attempt to get to blackjack (21), or as close as possible without busting (going over 21). You may take as many 'hit' cards as you wish, but the risk of busting increases each time. To beat the dealer you want to get as close to a value of 21 as possible without going over.
