Switch BlackJack

Blackjack Switch is an enjoyable variant of the popular game that introduces an enjoyable twist. You will always be playing two hand positions and after the cards have been dealt, you have the option to switch the top cards of each hand around. The game is played with six decks of cards that are shuffled into a shoe between each round. In addition to the ability to switch, the game offers the option to split hands, double down, and even place an exciting side bet. It is sure to provide all Blackjack players with hours of fun.



Game Flow

At the start of a round, you need to place your ante bet, remember that you will always be betting on two hand positions. At the same time, you can also place the Super Match side bet. When you are happy with your bet, you will be dealt two face up cards to each hand position and the dealer will receive one face up card and one face down.

The aim is to build hands that have a value as close to 21 as possible but without exceeding 21 and going bust. When calculating the value of a hand, aces are worth 1 or 11, the picture cards are all worth 10 and the number cards are worth their face values. The best possible hand is Blackjack, an ace and a ten card, and it beats all other hands.

You are then presented with a number of basic options for your hands.

  • Switch – This will swap the top cards of each hand. This can only be done after the first two cards are dealt, it is not possible once additional cards have been dealt to a hand.
  • Stand – Your hand remains as is and play moves to the next hand or the dealer.
  • Hit – You receive another card, if you don’t bust then you may Hit or Stand again.
  • Double – This doubles your bet, you will receive one more card, and then the hand stands.

Occasionally you will be offered the following options:

  • Split - If the first two cards have the same value then they can be Split into two hands. This doubles your bet and you will play the two hands independently. If you split two aces then you will receive just one more card to each hand. It is also possible to Double after splitting.
  • Insurance – If the dealer’s face up card is an ace, you can place an Insurance bet against the dealer having Blackjack. Insurance costs half of your original bet and pays out if the dealer has Blackjack.

When you have finished playing your hands the dealer will play. The dealer will stand on hard 17s and hit on soft 17s. In this version of Blackjack, if the dealer has 22 then your bet is returned as a push rather than a bust, unless you have Blackjack.

Bets Explained

As explained above, you only need to place the Ante bet in Blackjack to start the round and occasionally you can place the Insurance bet.

Side Bets

Blackjack Switch offers the Super Match side bet. It wins when the first four cards dealt to the player (two from each hand) form a four of a kind, two pairs, three of a kind or one pair.

Special Features

The game does not have many additional special features, but there are helpful buttons to make playing smoother. There are shortcuts to quickly place the same bet again and deal the cards and you can also control the volume and choose to play in full screen mode.

Payouts

All winning hands are paid out at 1:1, including Blackjack. A winning insurance bet pays at 2:1 (ensuring that you do not lose money on the hand), while hands that tie with the dealer are returned as a push.

The Super Match side bet pays at 10:1 for four of a kind, 8:1 for two pairs, 5:1 for three of a kind and 1:1 for a pair.
