S.D. Admin. R. 20:18:15:26 - Drawing of additional cards by players and dealers

A player may elect to draw additional cards if the player's point count total is less than 21. A player with blackjack or a hard or soft total of 21 may not draw additional cards.

A dealer must draw additional cards to the dealer's hand until the dealer has a hard or soft total of 17, 18, 19, 20, or 21. House rules may require the dealer to draw additional cards on a soft 17. Thereafter, no additional cards may be drawn. A dealer may not draw additional cards to the hand, regardless of the point count, if decisions have been made on all players' hands and the point count of the dealer's hand will have no effect on the outcome.
