The basic premise of the game is to be assigned cards totaling up to 21. Each player is dealt two cards. When a player is dealt a 9 or lower value card and an Ace they have been given a soft hand. When the player is dealt no Ace it is referred to as a hard hand. Once the cards have been handed to all players at the blackjack table, which includes the dealer, every black jack player is given the opportunity to make one of 6 decisions:

Taking another card (Hit): When a player announces hit me the dealer will give them another card, if the adding of that card causes the value of the hand to exceed twenty-one the player will have lost and be excluded from the game, if the card makes the value of the hand to 21 the gambler is the winner and if the total hasn't yet reached twenty-one they're still in the game.

Keeping the hand you've been dealt: If a blackjack player is happy with the hand they will hold. Once this has happened the dealer will show their hand and the player who has gotten twenty-one or the closet to 21 will come away with a win.

Doubling Down: A black jack player may ask to double down which doubles the wager they have laid. Once you have taken this procedure you can only receive 1 more card. The specifics of doubling down are usually out lined by the table or casino rules so prior to betting make sure you are familiar with the casino game rules. If you are gambling at an internet betting house this is normally very simple.
