The computer is the dealer. The object of the game is to get a higher count of cards than the dealer, up to but not over 21. If a player draws cards with a point value over 21, the hand is a BUST, and he loses his bet to the dealer. If the dealer's goes BUST, he pays off each of the remaining players. A player may "draw" any number of cards until he reaches or exceeds a total of 21. The dealer must "draw" a card on 16 or less and "stick" with his hand on 17 or more. An ace counts as either 1 or 11 at the player's discretion. Kings, queens and jacks count as 10 each. All other cards count as their face value.
