Blackjack is a popular card game played most often in casinos. Blackjack is considered a gambling game because - even though there are strategies a player should follow - the blackjack player will always lose in the long term (except if he/she is cheating or the casino adjusted its blackjack rules (eg for promotions) so that the house has a negative edge). It is still fun to play though, and if you play good, you will not lose too much money ;)

Your goal when playing blackjack is to get a hand with a higher value than the dealer has without getting over 21 points. Blackjack is played with a french deck which contains the cards from 2 to ace. Jack, Queen and King are each worth 10 points, an Ace can be valued at 1 or 11 and the rest of the cards are worth the numeric value shown on the card.
At the beginning of a blackjack round each player gets two cards and can request as many cards as he/she wants.
