How to Play Double Deck Blackjack

Two cards are dealt to each player and the dealer. The player's cards are dealt face down; one of the dealer's cards is dealt face up and the other face down.

The object of the game is to draw cards to a total of 21 or closer to 21 than the dealer. The Ten, Jack, Queen and King count ten points each; other cards count as face value-- Aces can count as one or eleven points.

An Ace with any Ten, Jack, Queen, or King is a "Blackjack". It is paid at 6 to 5 of the amount wagered, unless the dealer also has a Blackjack; in which case it is a "stand-off" or "push"-- neither the dealer nor the player wins.

If you do not have a Blackjack, you may indicate to the dealer to "hit" your hand, by tapping your hand/cards on the table. This means to give you another card.

  • You may draw as many cards as you like (one at a time) to improve your hand, but if you go over 21, you have "busted" and, consequently, lose your wager (busted hands are to be revealed face up to the dealer). If you do not want a "hit" (you have drawn as many cards as you desire), then you may indicate to the dealer that you would like to "stand" by tucking your cards under your wager.
  • You may "double down" (double your original wager) to receive one card on 10 or 11 only.
  • You may "split" any two cards with the same face value by making a wager equal to the original wager. You may "double down" after splitting" on 10 or 11 only.
  • You may split cards one time to make two hands.
  • Aces may only be split once, with each Ace receiving only one additional card face down.
