Switch Multi Hand Classic Blackjack with JackpotCity

If classic blackjack is your regular game of choice, here’s an opportunity to branch out and try your hand at a variation on the classic theme. Another Microgaming product that has been refreshed and reinvigorated by Switch Studios, Switch Multi Hand Classic Blackjack, allows you to play up to three hands simultaneously, increasing the spread of your bet and allowing more opportunities to implement a winning strategy.

Available via JackpotCity’s mobile casino, Canadian players get to enjoy this game’s modernized interface and smooth performance while taking advantage of its responsive design which makes it accessible on a variety of devices.

How Switch Multi Hand Classic Blackjack Works

The game is played with a single deck that is shuffled after each round, ensuring fairness and unpredictability. To start the game, you and the dealer are each dealt two cards. Here, you can choose to play up to three hands at the same time, each played as an individual game. Your two cards are face up, while the dealer has one card face up and the other face down.

Your goal in the game is to beat the dealer by reaching a hand value of 21 or as close to it as possible. If your hand goes over 21, it goes bust, and you lose. However, if you achieve a hand value of 21 in just two cards, consisting of an Ace and a 10 value card, it is considered "Blackjack", and you win one and a half times your bet.

To build your hand, you can choose to Hit, which means asking for another card to be dealt to your hand. Alternatively, you can Stand, which means refusing any additional cards. In Switch Multi Hand Classic Blackjack, the dealer is required to stand at 17. This means that once their hand reaches a value of 17 or higher, they must stop drawing additional cards.

When valuing cards, Aces can be counted as either 1 or 11, depending on what benefits your hand the most. Face cards, such as Kings, Queens, and Jacks, are all valued at 10. It's important to understand the distinction between a "soft hand" and a "hard hand". A soft hand is one that contains an Ace and any card other than a 10. A hard hand does not contain an Ace.

To make informed decisions during the game and improve your chances of success, apply basic Blackjack strategy. For example, if you have a hard hand worth 8 or less, it is generally advisable to Hit. Conversely, if your hand is worth 17 or more, it's best to Stand.

Advanced Betting Features in Switch Multi Hand Classic Blackjack

This classic blackjack game includes the following advanced features from which you can choose when considering your betting options:

Double down: You should choose this feature when you think your hand has a high likelihood of beating the dealer. Doubling down is allowed only on the first two cards if they are valued between 9 and 11, and not after a split. It involves doubling your bet and drawing another card to try to draw a winning hand.

Split: Opt to split with pairs, 8s, or Aces. It’s not advisable to split 10s or 5s. In this game, you can split two cards of the same denomination, but you may only split once. To employ this tactic, place a bet equal to the value of your original bet and receive an additional card per hand. If you draw a card with a value of 10 after splitting a pair of Aces, this doesn’t count as Blackjack, and your payout will be the same amount as your bet.

Insurance: The purpose of insurance is to safeguard yourself against the dealer getting Blackjack. When the dealer's initial card is an Ace, you get to use this feature. Remember that this feature only applies to your original hand and does not cover any additional hands resulting from splits or doubling down. If the dealer does not have Blackjack, your insurance bet value is deducted from your credit and removed from the table. However, if the dealer does have Blackjack, you receive a payout at a ratio of 2:1.
