The main logic of the game is to get closer To 21, not exceeding 21, necessarily higher than that of dealer‘s hand. Any player exceeding 21 will lose, including the dealer also. Blackjack is not playing against the other players, but playing vis a vis the dealer only. Every player who is still in play wins if dealer busts (exceeds 21).|

|11.)||Look at your hand whether to stay or hit. If you are between 17 to 20, always stay (don’t ask for more cards and wait for the dealer‘s turn).These hands are pretty good and you can win if the dealer have to stay on a number below what you have.|
|12.)||You always hit (ask for another card) if the number is11 or under. Number 11 or below can never let you lose so take another card to get closer to 21or even you can get a blackjack.|

|14.)||Always use the dealer’s hand as your guide on how to move. If dealer hand is showing 7,8,9,10 or any face card you must assume that the card face down is 10,and dealer has beat you. If the dealer’s hand is 6 or less, then also assume the hidden card as 10, in that case the dealer will have to hit (must hit on less than17).|
|15.)||While your chance to show that you want to hit (take another card)point at your card without touching your cards. If you don’t want another card (want to stay) wave your hand in your table area. What you mean to do is seen by the cameras above you so always do this on table.
