Unlike the Player, the Dealer, in a game of Blackjack has very few decisions to make, they have to deal the cards, following the rules indicated on the Blackjack table and then pay and remove winning and losing bets.
The only critical rule they have to follow is how they play their hand when it is worth 17 in total, they either have to Hit their hand or Stand such a hand, so a Dealers game is rather easy!
Plus of course they have to know how much to payout a winning hand.
