Blackjack Switch

Play 2 hands of Blackjack with the option to switch the top 2 cards between the hands to improve your chances of winning. This exciting twist on the classic game of Blackjack also includes a super match side bet giving you even more betting options, and be rewarded with even more comp points.

  • Game Rules

    The object of Blackjack Switch is for the total of your cards in either hand to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. Card values are the same as in standard Blackjack – aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards as their face value.

    The rules are the same as in standard Blackjack (see here). Except you have two hands, which you play in turn – first the right and then the left one, then the dealer plays his hand. You may split, double, take insurance etc. just like in standard Blackjack. An exception from the standard Blackjack is that the dealer always hits soft 17 – meaning he always draws one more card when he has 17 with an ace counted as 11. Also, ‘Blackjacks’ pay 1/1 instead of 3/2 although more ‘Blackjacks’ are created due to the ‘switching’ option. (See below). Another exception is that Blackjack rule no. 5 (“If the player doubles and the dealer’s first card is of value 10, and the dealer gets blackjack, the player loses only the initial bet.”) does not apply in Blackjack Switch.

     

    Peek

    If the dealer’s up card is an Ace or a 10-card, the dealer will peek at his cards to check for Blackjack before the player makes his moves. If the dealer does in fact have Blackjack and the player doesn’t, he will reveal his cards and collect all bets, and the game round will be over with the dealer winning. If either of the player’s two initial hands (before switching) makes up Blackjack, that hand pushes against the dealer and the bet for it is returned to the player.

     

    Switch

    Prior to any hits, you may switch the top cards of your two hands.

     

    Push 22

    Dealer will “push” on a total of 22 (except 'Blackjacks' will still win). This means that whenever the dealer's total reaches 22 then all bets are 'pushed', regardless of their total except if a player either has a ‘Blackjack’, which will still win, or has ‘Bust’, which will still lose.

     

    Super Match

    The small circle between the standard bet areas is the super bet area. The super bet wins if your initial 4 cards contain 2 or more matching cards. For example, if your right hand is a Queen and a Six, and your left hand a Queen and a King, you have a pair and your super bet wins. The win ratios are written on the table.
