Blackjack Help

         Try to get a higher hand that the house without going over 21.
         Your score is the total number of points of all your card. The number cards is worth their face value. Jacks, queens, and kings are worth 10 points. Aces can be worth either 1 or 11 points depending on your circumstances. If you go over 21 points, you lose automatically.
         Your hand can consist up to 5 cards. To get another card, you must "hit". If you have five cards and you do not exceed 21 points, you win by default and recieve 2x more winnings.
         If you get an Ace with either a 10, jack, queen, or king, you have a blackjack. A blackjack will get you 2x more winnings.
         If you and the house have the same score, then it is a "push". If this happens, you will get your bet back.
         When you are satisfy with your current hand, you can "stand". This will give the house the chance to "hit". The house will hit until it gets a score of 17 or higher. After the house finish, the score is calculated and winner is declared.

Advance Rules/Tips

         When you only have 2 cards, you have the option to "double down". When you double down, you will recieve one more card and then you must "stand". If you win, you will earn 2x more winnings. It is usually a good idea to double down on 10 or 11.
         After the first cards are dealt, you have the option to "fold". If you fold, the game is over and you will recieve 75% of your bet back. It is usually a good idea to fold if the house have an Ace showing, cause it is likely they have a blackjack.
