Switch Multi Hand Vegas Single Deck Blackjack with JackpotCity
Another Microgaming original has been revamped for modern audiences. Switch Multi Hand Vegas Single Deck Blackjack is a mouthful, and rightly so! With fresh graphics and sounds and a more intuitive user-interface, this Switch Studios multi hand blackjack game moves seamlessly between both desktop and mobile devices while allowing you to play up to five hands at a time.
In addition, these multi hand blackjack rules dictate that all bets be made on a single standard 52 deck of cards. This is essentially one of those casino games where players stand a better chance of beating the dealer.
Switch Multi Hand Vegas Single Deck Blackjack Rules
In a game of Switch Multi Hand Vegas Single Deck Blackjack, the dealer initially deals two face-up cards to the player while giving themselves one face-up card and one face-down hole card. From there, the player has the choice to Hit (request another card) or Stand (refuse another card).
The objective is to form a hand with a total value closer to 21 than the dealer's hand. Regarding card values, aces have the flexibility to be counted as either 1 or 11, while face cards (Jacks, Queens, and Kings) carry a value of 10. If a hand includes an ace and any card other than a 10, it's considered "soft" whereas a hand without an Ace is termed "hard". Going over 21 results in a bust, leading to elimination from the game.
Achieving a natural blackjack (the player's first two cards equal 21) instantly wins and pays out at a rate of 3:2. In the event of a tie between the player’s and dealer's hands, it's considered a tie, and the player's bet is returned.
In terms of basic strategy, the commonly accepted approach suggests standing on a hard hand of 17 or higher, as well as on a soft hand of 17 or 18. It is recommended to hit when holding a hard hand valued at 8 or below. In the context of multi-hand blackjack, the dealer adheres to specific rules: they stand on a hard hand of 17, but crucially, they must hit on a soft hand of 17. Additionally, if the dealer's face-up card happens to be an ace or a ten-value card, the peek rule is applied to check for dealer blackjack.
Betting Options in Switch Multi Hand Vegas Single Deck Blackjack
Multi hand Vegas Single Deck Blackjack employs the following features and play-enhancers:
Multi Hand Play: You can play up to five hands of blackjack at a time.
Splitting: In the game, you have the option to split two cards of the same denomination or value. Upon splitting, an additional bet equal to your original wager is placed on the second hand. A new card is dealt to each split hand. It's important to note that if you split a pair of Aces and draw a card with a value of 10, it does not result in Blackjack; instead, it carries a value of 21. This rule also applies when splitting cards with a value of 10 and subsequently drawing an ace. Splitting is limited to once per game, resulting in a total of two separate hands. Your split hands are resolved before the dealer plays their hand. In terms of general strategy, it is widely agreed that splitting pairs of eights or aces is advantageous, as it can enhance the overall potential of your hands. However, it is generally advised to avoid splitting pairs of 10s, as doing so would be considered a missed opportunity with a strong hand.
Double Down: Doubling down is permitted on your initial two cards only when you have a hard hand valued at 9, 10, or 11. The bet for doubling down matches your regular bet amount. When you choose to double down, you receive one additional card, and your hand remains as is. It is important to note that doubling down is not allowed after splitting.
Insurance: When the dealer's first card is an Ace, you have the option to activate the insurance feature. To utilize this feature, you must place an insurance bet equal to half of your original wager. Insurance is designed to provide protection against the dealer achieving Blackjack and mitigate potential risks. It's important to note that insurance applies solely to your initial hand and does not cover any subsequent hands resulting from splitting or doubling down. If the dealer does not have Blackjack, the insurance bet amount will be deducted from your credits and removed from the table. However, if the dealer does have Blackjack, you will receive a payout at a ratio of 2:1.
