11/3/71 BJ (VI) NAME bj -- the game of black jack SYNOPSIS /usr/games/bj DESCRIPTION Black jack is a serious attempt at simulating the dealer in the game of black jack (or twenty—one) as might be found in Reno. The following rules apply: The bet is $2 every hand. A player ‘natural’ (black jack) pays $3. A dealer natural loses $2. Both dealer and player naturals is a ‘push’ (no money exchange). If the dealer has an ace up, the player is allowed to make an ‘insurance’ bet against the chance of a dealer natural. If this bet is not taken, play resumes as normal. If the bet is taken, it is a side bet where the player wins $2 if the dealer has a natural and loses $1 if the dealer does not. If the player is dealt two cards of the same value, he is allowed to ‘double’. He is allowed to play two hands, each with one of these cards. (The bet is doubled also; $2 on each hand.) If a dealt hand has a total of ten or eleven, the player may ‘double down’. He may double the bet ($2 to $4) and receive exactly one more card on that hand. Under normal play, the player may ‘hit’ (draw a card) as long as his total is not over twenty—one. If the player ‘busts’ (goes over twenty—one), the dealer wins the bet.
