Blackjack Switch is Blackjack with a twist, so if you know the classical original you will have no problems quickly picking up this game. There are some different rules from the standard Blackjack so do study the rules before you begin. Once you have played it once or twice you might never go back to standard Blackjack again!
Blackjack Switch information
The object of the game is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer's cards without exceeding 21. Card values are the same as in standard blackjack. The game is basically the same as standard Blackjack except that you have two hands that you play in turn, the right and then the left, and then the dealer plays his hand.
There are some exceptions to the standard Blackjack rules, with the most notable being:
- The dealer hits on soft 17.
- Blackjack pays 1 to 1 instead of 3 to 2.
- A blackjack that you make after switching usually only counts as a 21.
- A dealer hand of 22 pushes all player hands except a natural blackjack.
There is also an optional side bet called the Super Match. The small circle between the standard bet area is the Super Match area and you win the super bet if you choose to place it and your initial four cards contain two or more matching cards.
How to play Blackjack Switch
Click on the chips to increase your bet. Every click on the chips increases the bet and a right click on the table chips removes them from the bet. You have two bet areas: the Normal (any of the two large circles) and the Super Match bet (small area between the two big ones). By clicking on the Normal bet area you actually place two identical bets, one for each of your hands. Once you have placed all your bets hit Deal.
Once the cards have been dealt to you and the dealer you can Hit, Stand, Double, Split, take Insurance or Switch as required. Do remember that after using Hit, Stand, Double or Insurance you cannot Switch. To play another round just press New Game.
When starting out, we advise you to use our Blackjack Switch strategy calculator at first to determine whether to switch. Then play the hands as per the accompanying strategy chart. There are subtle differences in the strategy from standard blackjack due to the fact that the dealer pushes with a hand of 22.
