These are just some of the blackjack variants to play online. Once you have mastered the standard online blackjack game, why not ramp up the excitement with these other fabulous games.
Blackjack Switch – This is an exciting variation of blackjack that is played online and at real casinos. If you use the right strategies with the blackjack switch, you can reduce the house edge to just 0.13%. With this game, you are dealt two hands at the same time, and if you choose, you can swap the second card over to improve your hands. Of course, the online casino has to have a couple of extra advantages, so rather than paying the standard blackjack payout of 3-2, you only get even money. A weird rule is if the dealer has a card hand totaling 22, all the players will push unless they have 21.
Spanish 21 – This is a fun variant to the usual online blackjack game, as it is played with 6 to 8 decks. In Spanish 21, all the 10 cards are missing making it a deck of 48 cards. While this might seem to put the odds squarely in the online casinos’ favor, there are a few rules that even the odds a little for the player. The main one is that if the player scores 21 for any combination of cards, it won’t be a push as in regular blackjack, but it will beat the dealer’s hand if they score the same.
Double Exposure Blackjack – In this online variant, both the dealer’s cards are dealt face-up, swaying the advantage in the player’s favor. Of course, online casinos have evened the odds by adding some extra rules such as: if there is a push, the dealer wins, unless the player has a natural blackjack. Also, blackjack only pays out even money if won.
Super Fun 21 – In this game, a player wins if they have a six-card hand that totals 20 – this even beats the dealer’s hand if he has a blackjack. Some other player advantages for Super Fun 21 are that a hand can be split four times, a player can double down at any point in the game, and if the player has a hand of five cards or more with a total of 21, they double their money. Of course, with all these player-friendly rules, the casino only pays out 6-5 rather than a 3-2 payout of traditional blackjack.
