  • Lose- Your bet will be taken by the dealer
  • Win– You will win as much as you have placed on the bet
  • Blackjack– Also known as a natural, this happens when you are holding a 10-point card and an Ace. If the player lands this set of cards, they win 1.5 times their bet.
  • Push– This is when both the player and dealer has the same hand value.” This is neither a win or loss resulting in the player keeping their bet.
  • Stiff hand– This is a card total that is between 12 and 16 that would make a player go bust if the player takes another hit.
  • Soft hand– This is the option of splitting a two card hand and playing the hands separately.
  • Soft 17-Any hand that consists of an Ace and a card between 2 and 7
  • Bust- When your card total exceeds 21 resulting in a lose
