InterCasino Single-Deck Blackjack
is played with one fifty-two card deck. After each
game has been played, the used cards are shuffled
back into the deck. All face cards are valued at
ten and the cards from 2-10 are valued as
indicated. Aces can be valued at either one or eleven; if counting the Ace as eleven would put
the hand over twenty-one, the Ace is automatically
counted as one instead. You do not need to specify
which value the Ace has as it's always assumed to
have the value that makes the best hand. The value
of a hand is the sum of the values of the
individual cards. For example, a hand containing a
Jack, 3, and 4 has a value of 17.
Betting: Your chips are stacked by
denomination ($1, $5, $25, $100, $500) at the
bottom of the screen above your User label. Select
the amount you would like to wager on a given hand
by clicking the left mouse button on the chip of
that denomination. The amount wagered per hand may
be increased or decreased by placing the mouse on
the stack that you wish to add or subtract to your
bet. Each time you click the left mouse button you
will add a chip from that pile to your planned
wager amount. Likewise by clicking on the right
mouse button you can decrease your planned wager
amount. You may repeat your last bet by simply
hitting the "0" button of your numeric keyboard.
Other keyboard shortcuts are summarized below. If
you place a wager that is lower than the minimum
table bet limit, your bet amount will be
automatically adjusted to the minimum bet amount.
Once your bet has been placed, you will
then receive two cards face up. The dealer will
receive one card face up and one face down. Once
you have been dealt your two cards (and based on
the nature of these cards) you can do the
following by clicking with the left mouse button
on the appropriate button:
This requests another card. You can
request a hit as many times as you like, but if
your total goes over twenty-one, you will "bust"
and lose the hand.
requests that you receive no more cards. The hand
as it currently stands will be judged against the
will only be active immediately after you receive
your first two cards. If you have two cards of the
same denomination, a Split button will appear. You
can split your cards into two hands and play each
hand separately. Your original bet will be
duplicated for the new hand. Each hand will be
played out as usual except when splitting Aces,
where only one additional card per hand is dealt.
A white box displaying your card total will appear
over each hand indicating which hand is active.
The split option can only be used once per hand -
you cannot split part of a split hand. Any winning
21 obtained after splitting a pair is paid 1-to-1.
This option will
only be active immediately after you receive your
first two cards. If you select this option, three
things will happen: you will get exactly one more
card, your turn will end, and your bet will be doubled.
the dealer's up-card is an Ace, the player has an
option of taking insurance for half the amount of
the original bet. When you do this, you are
effectively betting that the dealer's unseen card
is one with a value of ten.
You may opt to
take insurance by clicking on the "Insurance "
button. If you do not wish to take insurance, you
simply click on the "Pass" button to proceed with
the rest of the hand.
By taking insurance,
you are placing a side bet of half the original
wager. If the dealer does have a 10 ranking card (ie. a natural blackjack), the player is
immediately paid 2-to-1 on the insurance bet, but
the original wager is lost unless the player too
has a blackjack and pushes with the dealer.
If the dealer does not have a natural
twenty-one, the rest of the hand is played out as
usual and you will lose your insurance money.
If you win the hand, you will get back
your original bet plus the same amount in profit.
If you win with a natural blackjack, you
will be paid off at three-to-two odds, which means
you get your original bet back plus 150% profit. (So if you bet $50 and win with a natural
twenty-one, you get $50 (your bet) plus $75 (your
bet plus half of your bet), which totals to $125.

Basic Blackjack Strategy:
Basic blackjack strategy is defined as
the proper play of cards knowing only your hand
and the dealer's exposed card. It does not involve
card counting or remembering which cards were
played previously. The basic blackjack strategy is
created through intensive computer simulations
which perform a complete combinatorial analysis.
In this method, the computer "plays" tens of
thousands of hands for each Blackjack situation
possible and statistically decides which decision
best favours the player.
Basic strategy is
usually printed as tables with the dealer's up
card the first row and your two card combination
the first column. The other entries in the table
tell you what to do (Stand, Hit, Double-Down,
Split) with the different combinations of dealer
and player's hands. Basic blackjack strategy
tables for InterCasino rules (dealer stands on 17,
double-down on any two cards, double after split
allowed, no re-splitting of cards allowed, no surrender) are shown below for hard
totals, soft totals, and pairs along with a legend.
S - Stand
H - Hit
D - Double
Y - Yes, split
N - No,
You may turn on/off the Sound, Voice and Animation during the

activate the Animation feature.
