Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games. Quapaw Casino offers traditional shoe games and double-deck games. The object of the game is to draw cards that total as close to 21 as possible without going over. Each player receives two cards and the dealer receives two cards: one card face up and one down. Tens, Jacks, Queens, and Kings count as ten and aces may count as one or eleven. All other cards count as face value.
Players may elect to stand or hit their hands. If a player hits and his or her total is more than 21, the player "busts" or loses. If the dealer "busts" and the player does not, then the player wins. The player wins if their total is closer to 21 than the dealer's total. If the player and dealer have the same total, it is a tie or "push."
When a player receives an ace and a ten-value card as his or her first two cards, the player has "Blackjack" and wins three to two on the bet unless the dealer also has Blackjack, then it would be a push.
