Blackjack and its Many Variations

Blackjack is one of the most popular games at the casino, and over the years it has come to have many different variations.

Here are four of the most popular variations of Blackjack that you can play.

  • Blackjack Switch- This game is played with two hands in which the second card dealt can be interchanged between. For example, if a player has a K-4 and a 7-Q, that player can switch the cards to make a K-Q and 4-7. Blackjacks in this game are paid 1:1 instead of the traditional 3:2.
  • Double Attack Blackjack- This is a very fun game as each player has the option of increasing a wager after seeing the dealer’s up card. Blackjacks only pay even money and the game is dealt from a Spanish shoe.
  • Super Fun 21- This game allows players to split a hand up to 4 times. If a player gets six cards totaling 20, then he or she automatically wins. .
  • Multiple Action Blackjack– This variation includes a player betting 2 to 3 times on a single hand. The dealer, in turn gets a hand for each bet placed by the player. This can double or even triple the number of hands a dealer can play per hour. This game allows players to play more games at a faster pace.

Jackpotjoy’s Single Hand Blackjack

Most blackjack fans have never had the privilege to play with a single deck due to gambling restrictions set forth by casinos. However, the internet now allows players to play Single Hand Blackjack which can be tons of fun.

This game is very simple, and the rules are the same as multi-deck blackjack. You must try to have your cards reach as close as possible to 21 without “busting.” Instant winning hands, called “blackjacks” can be achieved by matching an Ace with either a 10 or any face card.

Jackpotjoy’s’ Casino does have a few rules that are typical of other single deck blackjack games. You cannot split mismatched face cards, such as a King and a Queen. Also, splits cannot count as a “blackjack.” Doubling down is only allowed when the value of your cards equals nine, ten or eleven and with no Aces.

To bet all you have to do is click the chip you want to bet with. You can see the whole range of chips at the foot of your screen. You can bet with chips of £1, £5, £25, £100 and £500 for up to a total of £1,000. Once you choose your chip you just drag it over to the casino.

You can also easily remove bets. You just press and hold the spacebar button and then click the bet you want to remove from the table. To remove all of your bets just hit clear. Then you hit the deal button and start playing Single Hand Blackjack right from your own computer!!
