Size of rates does not influence upon the blackjack odds. On each table for blackjack, the tablet is established. Each tablet shows the range of the rates allowable behind this table (a minimum and a maximum). Examples of ranges: $5 - $100, $25 - $500, $25 - $1000.
The course of a game has specific blackjack odds, just like everything in our life. You should know them all in order to be successful. Usually there are some players behind a game table, who make rates before the game begins - put chess pieces on boxes. After that, the dealer distributes one card to each player, puts a card to him and gives one card to each player again. All cards are put in open. Now the croupier begins serial job with each of players. In a while, it is your turn.
We suppose that you have put $100. It is a good rate especially if you do not know all blackjack odds. You see two cards and one card of the croupier. Cards of other players have no value for you; the game is conducted only against the dealer. Keep in mind these blackjack odds! Two cards make your initial combination, which can try to be improved, gathering additional cards. Then the croupier will do the same, "improving" the unique card. The combination wins, if it appears more valuable. The size of a prize is your rate ($100).
However, if you are lucky and the blackjack came to you at once, the croupier will pay off in the ratio 3:2, i.e. your prize will make $150. In that case, when your cards and cards of the dealer have the identical value, the game comes to an end in a draw (on an international language of a casino the drawn game is designated by English words - push or stay). Therefore, even such high combination as blackjack does not guarantee a prize.
You have no right to touch the cards of other players.
Usually players communicate with the dealer either by words, or by gestures. If you want to take an additional card, for example, you point out your finger on the combination. Finishing a set, wave away the following player or make horizontal movements by a palm: say, it is enough. Except the set of cards, you have some interesting blackjack odds. We will consider them later, for now we will be concentrated on additional cards. If the two initial cards do not arrange you, you can ask the dealer to open one more. Having estimated the turned out combination it is possible to ask a new card, etc.
Eventually you stop, or the play will be terminated at surplus and the croupier will take away your rate immediately. It is necessary to remember duplicity of aces at a set of cards. Having received the three and an ace, you have 14 or 4 points. We suggest that you should take a new card and it will be again an ace. Now you have 15 or 5 points (but not 25!). It is possible to ask one more card: you are insured from surplus. Irrespective of quantity of the received aces, the sum of points cannot have more than two values.
