The goal of Blackjack is simple; beat the house`s combination by acquiring a combined card count of 21 or less. Aces are valued either as 1 or eleven, picture cards Kings, Queens and Jacks have a card value of ten. All cards have their numeric face value, i.e. 7 is valued as 7 points, 2 is valued at 2 points… etc. If Player’s total exceeds 21, the Player loses the bet amount.
