Some of these differences include the way the cards are dealt. All player cards are dealt face up. The dealer’s hand, the first card is dealt face down and the second card is dealt face up. The players then get their opportunity to hit or take additional cards to improve their hands. The dealer then will turn his cards up and if his hand is sixteen and below the dealer must take a card. If the dealer’s hand is a seventeen or above the dealer must stand. Most casino blackjack games are played with six decks of cards at a time. With this, the payouts also increase on blackjack. If you have a blackjack, it will pay one and a half times your bet. Again when gambling for real money, be cautious about risking money you can not afford to lose.
