Ready to roll with Blackjack? Good manners always make a trip to the casino way more fun. Here are a few things to know about what’s expected before you go:


Two stacks of poker chips next to a stack of cash.

Buying Chips

Buy chips at the table from the dealer. Place your cash on the table just outside of your betting spot. Tell the dealer the denomination of chips you want to buy.

Touching your Chips

Touching your Chips

Once the dealer calls “no more bets”, that’s your cue to not touch your chips until the play on the hand is completed. Your original bet must stay untouched on the layout until it wins, loses, or ties.

Stacking your Chips

If you are betting two or more different denomination chips, always place the higher denomination chip on the bottom of your stack of chips.


Two face-up cards: a 5 of spades and a 3 of hearts.

Touching your cards

The cards are dealt face up for secure play, easy viewing, and for the dealer to call the total for each player's hand. There's no reason to handle the cards you’re dealt, so be sure not to touch them.

On the Table

Keep the Blackjack table free of personal items. Wallets, handbags and other pieces should be tucked away, placed on your lap or next to you, not on the table. Want a beverage at the table? Use the holders provided by the casino to avoid spills.

Ask for advice

Need advice? Blackjack dealers want you to have fun and feel confident at the table, and are happy to help.


The dealer is only allowed to answer basic strategy questions.

If another player asks for your advice, feel free to offer it. But other players will play the way they want with their money, and it’s best to let them do so.
