Hit: There are various uses for the term hit. It indicates a player’s desire to have another play or, in the game of blackjack, to have another card dealt to him or her. The term is also used to designate a onetime bet of a player against another player or against the house (casino). Casinos operate on the principle known as the law of large numbers. Using this principle, they may allow high rollers to make very large bets with the understanding that such a player will continue to make the large bets over a period of time. A onetime hit is very risky for a casino, as the casino cannot use its long-term-odds advantage over the player to make up for occasions when the player will win the hit. Therefore most casinos will limit the size of single bets they allow a player to make.
