If you don't bust and your total is higher than the dealer's total, you win even money, (e.g., if you bet $20 you win $20).
If your total and the dealer's is the same, it's a push and you neither win nor lose.
If your first two cards are a 10 value and an ace, you have a natural blackjack and you automatically win except if the dealer also has a natural blackjack. In that case, it's a push. However, if you win, the payoff is three to two (e.g., a $20 bet wins $30).Variations
The most flexible rules concern the number of decks, whether the dealer must hit or stand on a soft 17, and whether doubling is allowed after splitting. Some rules allow you to re-split if your second card for a hand is the same value as your original split cards.
