The Increase and Decrease buttons are used to adjust the size of your bet. These may be represented as either a + and - symbol or up and down arrows. The bet size can only be changed between games.
The Deal button starts a new game of Blackjack.
The Hit button deals you another card.
The Stand button, sometimes called the Stay button, ends your hand and moves the game onto the next phase be it the completion of the dealer's hand or of your second hand in the case of a Split.
You can split two cards with the same denomination, such as two Queens or two Fours, by clicking the Split button. Your hand is divided into two separate hands and a bet equal to your original bet is placed on the second hand. So, you have effectively doubled your bet. New cards are dealt to each new hand and you play these separate hands as normal.
It is not considered Blackjack if you split a pair of Aces and then receive a card with a value
of 10. But, this hand still has a value of 21.
If you split your hand you cannot Double on the two separate hands.
The Double button doubles your wager on your current hand. Once you choose to Double you will only receive one more card. You will only be allowed to Double if the value of your hand prior to Doubling is 9, 10 or 11. This is essentially a wager on your next card being sufficient to beat the dealer's hand.
The Insurance button is only available when the Dealer's first card is an Ace. Insurance is a bet against the Dealer getting Blackjack. The Insurance bet costs half your original bet and will pay out 2 to 1 if the dealer gets Blackjack.
