Double Exposure Blackjack

The Game

In blackjack you play only against the dealer, independently of the other players. Your goal is to draw cards until your hand adds up to 21, or comes as close as possible without exceeding 21. If your first two cards total 21, you have blackjack.Double Exposure Blackjack is one version of Blackjack, in which both of the dealer's cards are dealt face up.

Refer to the difference between Double Exposure Blackjack and Classic Blackjack.

The Card Table

In the centre of the table there are five boxes - you may play on each of them. Beneath the boxes are the player's chips. On the top right is the deck, from which the cards are taken. On the top left are the casino's chips. On the bottom right part of the table are the control buttons for the game.

Card Values

To calculate the overall points in a hand, add up the values of all the individual cards in that hand.

  • The values of the cards from 2 to 10 correspond to their numerical marking. For example, the value of the card "5" is 5.
  • The Jack, Queen and King are all worth 10.
  • The Ace is worth either 1 or 11, and this is determined so that the sum of the points should be as big as possible, without exceeding 21. For example, the combination of Ace and five is simultaneously worth both 6 and 16, whereas the combination of Ace, five and ten is worth 16 (since in this combination if the Ace were worth 11, then the overall sum would be 26, i.e. more than 21).

Card suits have no significance in blackjack.

Soft and Hard Combinations

A combination of cards is called "soft" if it includes an Ace of the value 11. All remaining combinations (combinations either not including an Ace, or including an Ace of the value 1) are called "hard". For example, the combinations "10, 8" or "5, Ace, 10, 2" are both hard with the value of 18. The combination "7, Ace" is soft with the value of 18.

"Blackjack" is the combination of two cards: Ace and a card worth 10 points in either order.

The Bets

To place a bet, simply click the mouse on the chosen chip and, having selected the round, click again to drop the chip there. By clicking directly on a field you can place the minimum bet. To cancel a bet, click on the field with the chips. To get rid of a chip, move the cursor of the mouse outside the boundaries of the card table. The "REBET" button repeats the last bet.

The Jackpot

You can only play for the jackpot when playing "for REAL".

To win the jackpot you must play with 3 hands and get a blackjack in each hand.

The Rules of the Game

Press the "DEAL" button to deal the cards.

The game is played with 6 decks of 52 cards. Unlike classic Blackjack, in Blackjack "double exposure" all 6 decks are mixed in together in one stack, which is mixed before every deal, but no shuffling is used.

The game takes place between the player and the dealer. The player can play on several boxes (as if several players were playing). The aim of the game is to get 21 points or a sum close to 21. If the sum of the points is bigger than 21 the player "busts" and loses his bet.

The rules for the dealer are very simple. If he has 16 or less points in his hand he is obliged to take a card. If he has 17 or more points he must stop. Hence, unlike in classic Blackjack, if the dealer has a soft combination worth 17 he must take an additional card.

The dealer deals two cards to the player followed by two cards to himself. The dealer receives both his cards face up, hence the game is called "double exposure". Cards are dealt first to the player until he stops, or the sum of his points reaches or goes over 21.

The player can take an additional card ("HIT" button) or stop ("STAND" button). Once the player and dealer have both stopped, if the sum of the player's cards is less than that of the dealer's cards the player is considered to have lost and loses his bet. If the sums of the dealer and player's cards are equal it is a draw and the player gets his bet back. In the case of the player's win (but without him having a blackjack) the pay-out is equivalent to 100% of his bet. For example, having placed 10 chips and won, the player gets both the 10 chips of his bet back and an additional 10 chips as winnings.

If the player gets a blackjack then the pay-out is equivalent to 100% of the sum of the bet (1:1), i.e. if he placed 10 chips the player receives the 10 chips of his bet and 10 chips as winnings, hi the case of a blackjack for the dealer the game immediately stops with the payout of the winnings according to the player's blackjack 1:1 and all the other players lose.

Double

If the player only has two cards in his hand he may double his bet ("DOUBLE" button). If he does so a sum equal to his first bet is subtracted from his account and then he is automatically dealt one more card, after which dealing to this hand stops.

In Blackjack "double exposure" doubling of the bet is possible only in the case of a hard combination worth 9, 10 or 11. In all other situations doubling is forbidden.

Split

If the player only has two cards in his hand and both are of the same face value then he may split them ("SPLIT" button). If he does so the amount of his bet is transferred to one card and an equal amount is placed on the second card. Now the player is playing with two hands. In this case the rules remain exactly the same but with one exception - a "blackjack" on the splitted hands is not considered a "blackjack" and pays in the ratio 1:1. It is possible to have up to three splits on one hand.

It is possible to split several times. For example, the combination 5 and 5 is dealt. The player splits. On the first hand he receives another 5. The player can split once again and as a result play on three hands.

Surrender

In Double Exposure Blackjack surrender is not available.

Insurance

In Double Exposure Blackjack insurance is not available.

Even Money

In Double Exposure Blackjack even money is not offered.
