why is it so popular?
The objective of blackjack is to beat the dealer’s hand by either having a total that exceeds the dealer’s total and by not going over 21 when the dealer does. Casinos have the edge because players must go first and when they bust their hand they automatically lose, even if the dealer also busts.
All cards count their face value in blackjack. Picture cards count as 10 and the ace can count as either a 1 or 11.
The Horizon Casino Resort is hosting a $150,000 Blackjack Competition from June 7 to 11. This will be the largest blackjack tournament ever at South Lake Tahoe, with the largest purse.
