If on the first two cards, a player thinks they can win with only one more card, they may place a wager equal to the amount of their original bet beside their bet saying “double”. This indicates to the dealer that a player is doubling down and will deal only one more card to complete a player’s hand. If a player wins, they will double the amount of their total bet.
When a player is dealt two cards of the same value (two fours, tens, etc.,) they have the options to split the two cards and play each hand individually, making another hands. A player must bet the same amount as their original wager on the split hand and say “split”. If a player’s next card is of equal value to the first pair, a player may split again. A player may also “double down” on the first two cards of each hand after a player split, except when splitting Aces.
If the dealer’s “up card” is an Ace, a player may buy insurance, which is a bet of one-half of a player’s original wager. Insurance is the same as betting that the dealer has a ten-value card in the dealer’s face down card making blackjack. All winning insurance wagers pay 2 to 1.
A standoff between a player and the dealer. It is a tie. The player’s wager is returned to them.
Non-verbal communication between a player and the dealer can be used to indicate “hit” or “stand”. Ask a dealer for the proper signals.
