time). Multiple decks allow the dealer to
deal more hands per hour (less shuffling etc), which makes them more
profitable for the casino, and they reduce the chances of a player 'counting'.
Dealers HAVE to follow straightforward rules, and must hit if they have 16
or less. On the other hand, if the dealer has 17 or more, he MUST stand,
except in some smaller casinos, where he can hit on a 'soft 17'.
You as the player can do anything you like, standing or hitting as it
suits you. If you get a BlackJack (an Ace and a ten right off) you win 1
and a half times your bet. You can only double down on 2 card hands
totalling 9, 10, or 11 (a very few casinos allow doubling on any 2 card
hand). If your cards were dealt face down and you want to double, turn
them over and put them on the dealer's side of the betting square.
Otherwise point to them and say 'double' when it's your turn. You will
have to put an equal amount of chips next to those already in the betting
box (NEVER put new chips on top of old chips - it looks like cheating!).
You will get one new card.
Splitting is kind of similar - cards dealt face down need to be turned
over and placed them a little apart. Otherwise point at them and say 'split'
when it's your turn. Place an equal amount of chips in the betting box
near the other card (remember, NEVER on top). You are now playing 2 hands
exactly as normal (unless you just split two aces in which case you only
get one card - a 10 would be good!. If it is a 10 the hand isn't a
BlackJack, meaning you only get the standard odds of 1/1 and not 1/1.5 as
you would for a 'natural' BlackJack. Be careful how you split - it is
possible to end up with 4 or 5 hands simultaneously! Likewise, it's
probably not good to split two 5s - you will be replacing a hand that is
great for drawing on or doubling down on with (probably) 2 poor hands ...
