21 Duel Blackjack is new, fast – paced version of the classical table card game Blackjack. The game has an added extra, with a side bet and option to play multiple hands. There are two community cards dealt in the middle for the player and the deal to use and this definitely spices up the game play.
The goal of 21 Duel Blackjack is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 then the dealers cards are, but without exceeding the 21 total. As in classical Blackjack the Aces count as either 1 or 11, the face cards as 10, and the number cards as their face value.
If the total of your cards is closer to 21 then the dealers then you win as much as you have wagered. If you tie with the dealer that is your totals are the same then you don’t win but do get your bet back. And if the total of your cards has passed 21 then you ‘bust’ and lose your bet. The game also gives you the option to place a side bet which only counts for your first two cards and the community cards. If you happen to have a pair among these you are paid out 3 to 1. If you are lucky to get three of a kind then you bank a nice payout of 20 to 1.
The game also gives you the option to play ‘Multiple’ hands which means you can play up tp five hands simultaneously.
You click on the chips to increase the bet; by right click on the chips you have bet you remove them from the table. You then click on Deal. You are dealt 2 cards, of which one is unturned. The dealer is dealt two turned cards and there are two community cards dealt in the middle. At this point you can either Fold and lose your stakes or you can decide to use the Left Card or the Right Card to form your hand. If you have chosen to use one of the cards in the middle and proceed your stakes will be doubled.
You then choose to Stand or Hit. If you Hit the face down card will be turned to form your final hand. The dealer will also then turn his cards and the closest to 21 wins the game.
