Dealer Rules in Blackjack
There are many dealers’ rules in blackjack for different game types and even each individual game. Here are some of the common rules that you will want to take note of.
Usually the dealer takes care of placing your cards and anything else that goes along with your blackjack table such as the reels, counters, and even the dealer’s card cup. One other dealer rule is that you must follow certain rules with your “cash” side. These include no talking or body language in regard to your wallet or pocket before the dealer takes the cash.
The most common dealer rules in blackjack are that if the dealer is busy or in a hurry to get out of the game, it is proper etiquette to politely ask them if they have another card. They will also tell you the blackjack table number so you can remind yourself of it at the end of the game.
The dealer is required to call their blackjack card after all the players have rolled the dice. This includes reels that have been set and a card in a straight or flush of numbers. If the dealer ever calls any other cards or a blackjack card during the game, a mandatory player elimination of that dealer must be done.
A dealer’s rule that is very prevalent in blackjack is that you must buy your next card no matter what it is, if you are able to pay for it. If you cannot, then your score must be zeroed out, which will mean a legal blackjack game for you and any other dealer with whom you play.
The dealer is allowed to refuse to sell a card that is a straight or flush if he thinks it is too close to the flop. He may also decide not to sell a card that would lead to a straight or flush. This goes for any other type of blackjack as well.
One more important thing to remember about blackjack table rules is that you must remove all the things from your pockets that you know are the same. Some dealers may come out and ask you if you have anything in your pockets but the very next thing you do is to pick up your chips and put it on the table. You may never know why the dealer took that step and there is nothing wrong with asking him or her to explain themselves.
