When you stand in blackjack, you are essentially saying that you do not want to receive any more cards. You are happy with the hand that you have been dealt, and you do not want to risk going over 21 and busting. Once all players have either stood or busted, the dealer will reveal his or her hand. If the dealer has a hand that is worth more than yours, you will lose your bet.
If the dealer has a hand that is worth less than yours, you will win your bet. If the dealer has a hand that is worth the same as yours, this is called a push and your bet will be returned to you.
When you play blackjack, getting a blackjack (a natural 21) is one of the best things that can happen. If you’re lucky enough to get a blackjack, the dealer will usually pay you 3-to-2 on your bet. That means if you bet $10, you’ll win $15.
