Take a seat at one of our tables, get your cards ready, and prepare to win big! Whether you're a newcomer or a seasoned pro, Spirit Mountain Casino is the perfect venue to enjoy the fast-paced excitement of blackjack.
Also called 21, blackjack is a game where players face off against the dealer. The concept is simple: both the players and the dealer each get two cards, one face-up and the other face-down. The goal is to draw two cards that total 21 points – but there's a catch! If you go over 21 points, then it's a “bust,” and you lose the game.
It's easy to become a master of blackjack, but it's helpful to know a little bit of background on game to increase your chances of winning. Here are a few terms that will help your blackjack strategy:
- Hit – When you play blackjack, you “hit” if you ask the dealer for another card.
- Stand – When you “stand,” you are opting to hold onto your cards. This means that your turn is over.
- Split – If both of your original cards have the same value, you can “split,” which means that the pair is divided into two hands. This doubles your bet, since each hand is worth your original bet. You can do this up to four times per game.
- Double Down – After getting your first two cards, you can choose to “double down,” or double your bet. After doing this, you will only get one additional card.
