Double Exposure Blackjack is a version of Blackjack with a couple of very important differences. First of all, as you may have gathered from the game, both yours and the dealers’ hand are visible to one another. Second, the scoring system and payout systems are adjusted to account for your obvious increased odds vis-à-vis the normal version of the game.
This is a good game for those who like the core concept of Blackjack but are looking for something a bit different to spice things up. All things considered, though, it is difficult to see what would draw players to this installment of Blackjack as opposed to the many others available out there. Not only is this variation of the game less exciting than some of the others out there, the graphics and overall presentation are not anything worth writing home about either.
The overarching concept of Double Exposure Blackjack is the same as in the original game – have the sum of your cards add up to as close as 21 without going over. In this particular version of the game, you do not make an ante bet so just click on ‘deal’ to get things moving. Initially, you are dealt two cards. In most cases, you have to only decide whether to hit, i.e. receive another card; or stay, i.e. keep the cards in your hand and opt to not receive new ones.
In Double Exposure Blackjack, the dealer wins on all ties except for on 21, in which case the player is victorious. The dealer is also obligated to hit if he/she has exactly 17. In this version you are also allowed to double down when your cards add up to 9, 10 or 11. You are also allowed to split up to three times to make a grand total of four hands. Aces may also be re-split should they form part of a split hand.
