    Default Black Jack Statistics game? lost.

    Hey everyone I'm writing a program that simulates a blackjack game not a playable game but one to find the statistics if you win or lose and find the percents. This is as far as i have gotten and I'm not stuck and at a complete loss. Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful.
    PHP Code:
    import java.util.*; 
    public class 
    BlackjackSkeletonNoRand {

        public static 
    void main(String[] args) {

            
    String outcome;
            
    int trials 100;
            
    int wins 0losses 0pushes 0;
            
    int rand=(int)(13*Math.random()+1);
            
            
    //Starts the loop for each trial and prints if its a win or a loss.
            
    for ( int i 1<= trialsi++){
                
    outcome blackjack(rand);
                
    System.out.println("The player has a " outcome "\n");
                if ( 
    outcome.equals("win"))
                    
    wins++;
                else if (
    outcome.equals("loss"))
                    
    losses++;
                else
                    
    pushes++;                
            }

            
    System.out.println("For " trials 
                            
    " hands of blackjack, the totals are:\n"
                            
    "wins = " wins "\nlosses = " losses 
                            
    "\npushes = " pushes);
            
    System.out.println("% wins = " + (double) wins/trials 100 
                            
    "      % losses = " + (double)losses/trials  100
                            
    "    % house advantage = " 
                            
    + (double)(losses wins)/trials 100);    
        }
