Whether you’re a brand-new to casino gaming or a betting house old-timer, twenty-one is 1 of the simplest and most exciting card games betting houses have to offer. The goal in vingt-et-un is to beat the dealer by acquiring a hand as near to twenty-one as as you can without going over. To wager on vingt-et-un, you just need a basic understanding of the rules and a eagerness to have excitement.

So how do you achieve twenty one? In chemin de fer, the cards have values. Number cards two up to ten are counted at the face value, while all face cards (King, Queen and Jack) are valued at ten points. The ace card is a unique card in black jack: you make a decision whether it’s worth 1 or eleven points. Since casino gamblers are given two cards to start, if you get an ace and a face card or 10,you’ve achieved twenty one-an immediate win, as long as the dealer doesn’t get twenty-one as well. This twocard winning hand is called a "black jack"; hence the name of the game!

Casino game rules for chemin de fer are basically the same at all betting houses. After you are given your first two cards, your possibilities are to take another card, hold, double your wager and take one card, split your hand into 2 hands with a second wager equal to the first, or occasionally surrender.

When you bet on chemin de fer at a betting house, make sure to know which table to pick. Most casinos have color coded black jack tables depending on the minimum wager the table accepts, normally 3 dollars, $5, 25 dollars or 100 dollars. In any betting house, it’s a given the $3 and five dollar tables will be crowded, but they’re fantastic for novices at blackjack because all of the cards are given out face-up, as opposed to the one-up, one-down way at higher tables. So the upcoming time-or the initial time-you go to a casino, be sure to visit the chemin de fer tables and target for twenty-one!
