The Online Blackjack terms mentioned above are as follows:
Hit: This is a request to the dealer to give you a card. You may request as many cards as you want, but if you get to the card value of 21 or you go bust (see below for what bust means) you can receive no more cards.
Stand: This is where you decide to no longer receive cards from the dealer. The card value that you stand on is your final card value total.
Double: This is where you receive only one more card and the bet you originally placed is doubled. Please Note! You have to stand after a double unless you go bust. This is a compulsory stand unless otherwise stated in the specific rules for the game of Online Blackjack.
Split: If the first 2 cards dealt to you are of equal value (for example a 2 od Spades and a 2 of hearts) then you can opt to split the hand. Each card then becomes the first card in a new hand.
Bust: This is when you or the dealer has a card value that exceeds 21. It is an automatic losing hand. If the dealer busts then the remaining players in the game automatically win.
