Rules to play Ildado
Blackjack is played with an international 52 card deck without jokers. Casinos normally use several decks mixed together called a shoe, both in order to speed up the game with more cards in play you dont have to reshuffle after every single hand and to make card counting more difficult card counting is a technique used to gain an advantage over the casino by keeping track of the proportions of different value cards remaining in play.
The number of decks differs from casino to casino, but there can be anything from two to eight decks in the shoe. The re shuffling frequency also differs from casino to casino, and of course depends on the number of decks used. Frequent re shuffling is another way to diminish the value of card counting.
In casinos, blackjack is played on a specially designed table. There is a permanent dealer employed by the casino, and room for up to eight simultaneous players, playing against the dealer. Each player has a designated playing area in front of him where cards are placed and bets are made.
The betting limits should be clearly posted on a sign on the blackjack table. Normally, some of the most important rules, such as Blackjack pays 3 to 2 and Dealer must draw on 16 and stand on all 17s are printed on the table.
To play blackjack you need chips to bet with, and you typically buy your chips directly from the dealer. When there is a break in the action, you simply put cash on the table and the dealer will change it for an equal value of playing chips.
