How to Play Basic Blackjack : Table Layout for a Game of Blackjack


Hi! This is Daniel on behalf of Expert Village
in this clip we’re going to be talking about the layout of a 21 or a standard blackjack
table in a standard casino in North America. Now the first thing you’ll want to pay attention
to is going to be the minimum maximum betting sign and that signs going to either be placed
directly on the table or next to the dealer that sign’s going to tell you the minimum
bet and the maximum bet that’s allowed at that table. Now they’ll vary from casino to
casino and often from table to table so you’ll want to pay attention to that. What’s most
important about that sign is your minimums, when you walk up to a table you want to have
enough cash in hand to be able to play at least 6 to 8 hands loosing hands at that table
otherwise you’re probably just wasting your time. The next thing you want to pay attention
to are the table rules, now those rules are going to tell when the house stands on a hand
when they hit a hand, now most casino’s in North America are going to hit on 16 or
stand on 17. The next thing you want to pay attention to is dealers going to sit on the
back end of the hole of the table and the players are going to sit an arch away from
the dealer, you can sit in anyone of these places that you feel comfortable but you have
to be in a position that has a players hole.
