Blackjack Double Exposure is an interesting twist whose most notable feature is, as you may have gathered from the name, that the dealer and player can see each other’s cards.

If either you or the dealer has a Blackjack (an ace and a face card), the game ends. If neither of you does, then the game continues and you must decide which of the following to do:
All wins in Blackjack Double Exposure pay 1:1.
