How to Play Basic Blackjack : Insurance Bets in Blackjack


Hi! This is Daniel on behalf of Expert Village
in this clip we’re going to be talking about using or taking insurance. If the dealers
up card is an Ace the player’s offered the option of taking insurance before the dealer
checks his whole card. The player who wishes to take insurance can bet an amount up to
half his original bet, the insurance bet is played separately on a special portion of
the table which is usually carries the word insurance pays to the one. The player who
is taking insurance is betting that the dealers whole card is a ten value card, for example
the player that’s $10 the cards are dealt, the players hand is 19 and the dealer shows
an Ace, they player takes insurance by betting an additional amount of $5, the dealer checks
her whole card and sees that it’s a $10 value card. The player looses his $10 bet
on the blackjack hand but he wins the insurance bet so the player gets two to one on his $5
insurance wager and receives ten on top of the five which is returned to him, notice
that the player came out even on the round.
