Live blackjack is easy to play and all you need is a hand total closer to 21 than the dealer without going bust, going over 21.
Live blackjack is played with eight standard 52-card decks and each player at the table is dealt a two-card hand. All the hands at the table are dealt face up, while the dealers hand is dealt with one card face up and one card face down. Players then have the opportunity to take additional cards to get closer to 21.If they go over 21, that hand is bust and they lose.
Hand totals are calculated with cards 2 to 10 having their face value, kings, queens and jacks are worth 10 each, and aces may be used as either 1 or 11.
