In a game of blackjack, a standard deck of 52 cards (without the joker) is usually used. However, in some variations of blackjack, the joker card may be included. In these blackjack variants, the joker can take on any value based on the context of the game. Alternatively, some versions of blackjack use the joker as an ace instead. When used as an ace, a joker always has a value of 11, unlike the ace, which can be either 1 or 11.

In some games of blackjack, the joker is worth zero, which means it cannot be used as anything and adds no value to the hand. In other variations, such as Spanish 21, players have the choice to treat the jokers as either a two or a ten at their discretion. It's important to note that how the jokers are valued depends on which version of blackjack you're playing. Before placing bets, ensure you understand and follow the blackjack rules regarding jokers at your table.
