The main aim with most blackjack varieties is to reach as close to 21 points as possible using the cards that you are dealt. The Player and the Dealer (aka banker) will both be dealt two initial cards and the value of the cards are calculated as follows:

The numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 are all worth their face value in points, while an Ace is worth either 1 point or 11 points and the Jacks, Queens and Kings are all worth 10 points. A Natural Blackjack is the best hand you could ask for and this happens when you are dealt an Ace and a 10 on your first two cards (Ace/11 + 10 = 21 points). You will also have the option of being able to take more cards (‘Hit’) to try and improve your hand and the banker generally has to draw to all 16’s and stand on all 17’s.
