How to play Blackjack Switch

As we said before Blackjack Switch is being played with two hands. This might sound a little like multi hand blackjack or Blackjack 5 Hand but blackjack switch is definitely different. At blackjack switch you are also allowed to swap the two top cards of your hands. The basic rules are the same as classic blackjack and the aim of the game is to get 21 with the cards on your hands. Or at least as close as possible to 21 and beat the dealer with that.
First you place your bets, one for each hand, and after that the dealer will deal the cards. You will receive two cards per hand face up. The dealer will receive two cards, one face up and one hole card (a face down card). Now you have to decide what to do with your two hands. First you play your right hand and then your left hand and than the dealer will play his/her hand. There are, like classic blackjack, several options which you can perform. You can simply hit another card per hand. Or stand for one or both hands. Or you can choose to double. But the great thing with blackjack switch is that you can switch your top two cards. For example if your first hand is dealt an Ace and 7 and your second hand is dealt a 7 and 10 you can switch the top cards. This will give you an Ace and a 10 in your first hand and thus a blackjack. And you second hand will be a pair of sevens, which you are allowed to split. This is a much better position for you then the initial hands. That is also why the pay out is much better at blackjack switch, it has the highest available payout at over 99.8% of all blackjack variants.
After you a finished with your hands the dealer will reveal the hole card and based on that the outcome of the game will be decided.

Blackjack Switch also offers a special side game called Super Match. This side game offers you the opportunity to put an extra bet on the following possibilities:

  • You will have a pair within the two hands. This will pay out 1:1.
  • You will have a 3 of a kind, payout 5:1.
  • You will have 2 pairs, payout 8:1.
  • You will have four of a kind, payout 40:1

Specifications of Blackjack Switch

The rules of Blackjack Switch are very similar to Classic Blackjack with some minor differences.

  • The dealer must hit on soft 17 (a hand with an Ace and a 6 valued card).

  • You can only split once per hand.
  • After a split you may double.
  • There is the so called Super Match side game.
