The hand with the highest total wins as long as it doesn't exceed 21; a hand with a higher total than 21 is said to bust or too many. Cards 2 through 10 are worth their face value, and face cards (jack, queen, king) are also worth 10. An ace's value is 11 unless this would cause the player to bust, in which case it is worth 1. A hand in which an ace's value is counted as 11 is called a soft hand, because it cannot be busted if the player draws another card.

Each player's goal is to beat the dealer by having the higher, unbusted hand. Note that if the player busts he loses, even if the dealer also busts. If both the player and the dealer have the same point value, it is called a "push", and neither player nor dealer wins the hand. Each player has an independent game with the dealer, so it is possible for the dealer to lose to some players but still beat the other players in the same round. [Wikipedia]

this is obviously either a technical error or they have just simply not added the game into the details making it impossible for anyone to play, or it was removed. REasons towards this include mabey user relations when loosing?

It's not imposible for people to play. They have these things called real cards. You use them to play games with real people

-unsarcasmed-

The above just gives instructions to play blackjack so you can learn how to play on another site or in real life.
