Free Blackjack Game
Blackjack, the world's most popular card game, has been played in various forms for over 400 years. Simple to learn but difficult to master, blackjack appeals to amateurs and experts alike.The basic objective of blackjack is simple: collect cards that add up as close to 21 without going over - face cards count as 10, aces can be counted as either 1 or 11 - and end up with a hand worth more than the dealer's. You start with two cards, and each "hit," or further card, you request is added to your hand, bringing you closer to the limit of 21. The dealer, meanwhile, is required to keep drawing cards until he either reaches 17 or "busts" by going over 21. Further strategy is added by the option to "double down" or "split" your hand into two if you start with two cards of the same value. These advanced tactics are best left to experts, since they mean increasing your losses.
