In Turkey, the rules of Blackjack are similar to those found in other countries. It is played with one or more decks of 52 cards and is usually dealt from a shoe. The dealer will deal two cards to each player and then one card to themselves, which is called the “up card”. In some variations, the dealer will deal two cards to themselves and keep one face down. The player’s cards are face up and the dealer’s cards remain face down until the end of the round.
Players can hit, stand, double down, split, or surrender if allowed. Hitting means to take another card, while standing means to stay with the current hand. Doubling down is when a player doubles their bet and is only allowed after the player has received their first two cards. Splitting is when a player splits their hand in two and is only allowed if the first two cards are of equal rank. Surrendering is when a player forfeits half of their original bet and is only allowed in certain casino variations.
The game also contains several side bets such as insurance and perfect pairs. Insurance is a side bet that pays 2-1 if the dealer has blackjack. Perfect pairs is a side bet that pays out if the first two cards are of the same rank.
