receiving your initial two cards from the dealer,
you determine their value by simply adding them together.
A 5 and 3 is 8; a king and 6 is 16; and an ace and
7 is either 8 or 18. If your first two cards consist
of an ace and a 10 or any picture card, the hand is
a perfect one-a "Online Blackjack Games"-often
called a natural. Unless the dealer ties you with
another Online Blackjack Games, you have an automatic
winner, and instead of the usual even-money payoff,
you are immediately paid one and a half times your
bet. For example, if you have $10 up, you receive
$15. With a tie, called a push, no money is exchanged.
private game is one not played in a public cardroom
or casino. It can be played at someone's house (curiously,
private games are often called home games even if
they aren't played in a home), in a fraternal organization,
a company's meeting room, or even a hotel room. Private
games usually meet regularly (once a week is common)
but can also be one-shot affairs.
