Twenty-One

Twenty-One is a card game in which a player tries to obtain a higher total card count than a dealer without exceeding 21.  An ace counts either one or eleven. A king, queen, and jack have a count of ten.  Cards two through ten are counted at their face value. A maximum of seven players may play at a table.  A player may play up to two betting spaces if an adjacent betting space is available.  An outsider may not wager on a player’s hand and a player may not wager on another player’s hand.

 

  • An individual must be at least age 21 to play Twenty-One.

 

 

Wagers

 

The organization may set the minimum limit for the original wager at not more than $3 on one active table.  If there is more than one active table at a site, the organization may set a higher minimum wager on additional tables.  The maximum limit per wager may be set by the organization at not more than $25.  Wagers in increments of $1 must be accepted between the posted minimum and the posted maximum limit. A player may not play more than two hands at the same time.
