Hi! My name is Hope Heresko and I've been the dealer at the Sheridan Casino in Tunica, Mississippi and at Derby Lane Race Tracks in Saint Petersburg, Florida.
Today, we're going to talk about playing Black Jack; a favorite game of Casinos. When you play Black Jack in a Casino, you have one of the best darts in the house to be a winner. But there is some basic strategy in playing Black Jack.
The main thing you need to remember when you play a game of Black Jack is that the game is Beat the Dealer not 21.
A lot of customers will come in and think that they need to make 21 not so. You need to remember what they are need to think of, what the dealer is showing and therefore try to beat them at their own game.
A dealer will either deal from her hand or have a shoe that the cards will come out of. Talking is not acceptable in saying give me a card or hit me. The reason for that is there are many security cameras in a Casino. One on every table. Security cameras can see very well but they don't hear, they do not have ears. So you must make a hand signal, so the camera can see that the dealer is doing what you would like.
In a Casino, you would motion like this, if you want to hit. If you don't want a hit, you would motion like this. A dealer will deal up, I am going to be playing with three players, she will give each player a card up and then one down for herself. She will give each player another card up, and her card will be turned up.
This player has 14 because I have a 4, I remember the game has beat the dealer. You must always think that the dealer has a 10 underneath, because there are more cards in a deck or it's 10 points than anything else.
So with 14 they would stay, this player has 13, even though they would really like to pull, they look at my card, thinking I have 14 they also will stay. This player has 20, that's a very good hand. You would never want to split those 10s because 20 is usually a winner.
When I turn my card, I have just what I thought, 14. These players are all hoping that I will get a 10 and bust. That is exactly what I did. I have 14, this player is a winner. At 13 this player is a winner, at 20 this player is a winner. But look what would have happened if this player who has 14 was trying to make 21 instead of to beat my 14. They would have gotten the 10, instead of being a winner they would have been a loser.
This player with 13 would now have 15, would now have 17 and would stay. This player still has 20. I have 14, 15 and I break and these players will win, but this player could have been a winner and became a loser.
I hope these tips on playing Black Jack will help you, the next time you are in a Casino. Now, we are going to move on to the game of Rummy.
