When playing a Blackjack game, firstly the punter and the dealer will each receive two cards. The cards given to the punter are normally dealt face up, whilst the dealer will have one card facing down and the other facing up. The best possible Blackjack hand is an opening deal of an ace with any ten-point card. The blackjack game is played with a standard international deck of cards minus the Jokers which means that you will have 52 cards in play. The game can be played on a single deck, double deck, 4 deck, 6 deck or 8 deck variants. the game also makes use of a table, chips, a discard tray, cut card and a shoe. All the cards are assigned a point value with cards 2 to 10 worth their face value which means that a number like 3 is worth 3 points. Kings, queens, and jacks are each worth 10, and aces may be used as either 1 or 11. After being shuffled, the cards are placed in a receptacle called a shoe, from which the dealer can slide out one card at a time.

In addition to the wheel, the game also has a table which also features the numbers and several additional sectors on which you can place bets. What happens is that when all the participants in the game have placed their bets on the table, the dealer spins the wheel and throws in a small ball and whichever is the number of the slot the ball lands in is the winning number.
