Basic Blackjack Rules
- Beat the dealer by getting as close to 21 as
possible without "busting."
- If the dealer shows an ace, you can pay an
"insurance fee" (1/2 of your bet). Then, if the dealer draws a

- Dealer automatically wins with a blackjack
(unless the player was dealt a Blackjack, which is a push).'

The artificial intelligence dealer generates a
"shoe" of cards, depending on how many decks you decide to use.
- Split hands on doubles (matching your bet)

"marker" (3/4 through the deck).
You start the game with $1000, and you can carry a negative balance.
