This is a relatively “young” and very popular type of blackjack. Double Exposure Blackjack is so fond of online casino customers that, over time, almost every leading gambling software provider found it necessary to acquire its own version of this game. As a result, “Double Exposure Blackjack” can be found in many online casinos.
On English-language sites, this version of blackjack may be called Double Exposure, Face Up 21 or Dealer Disclosure, but be sure that any of these games will be conducted according to the Double Exposure Blackjack rules. The goal of the game remains the same – beat the dealer. To win, a player needs to collect the strongest combination of cards, while the sum of player points must not exceed the limit 21.
- From 2 to 10 – corresponds to the face value of the card;
- Jack, Dame, King – 10 points;
- Ace – either 1 or 11 points (at the player’s request);
- Card suits do not matter.
Double Exposure Blackjack features
- the dealer plays with two open cards;
- the player loses any tie, with the “blackjack” exception;
- the combination of “blackjack” is paid 1 to 1;
- the dealer has to stop at “hard” 17 and get the card on “soft” 17;
- You can double only on “hard” 9, 10 or 11 points;
- there are no “surrender” and “insurance” options.
At the beginning of the round the player makes a bet on one or several boxes. The dealer deals two open cards to himself and the players. If the player has a “blackjack” on the hand, the payment is 1 to 1. When the “blackjack” rolls out at the dealer, the round ends.
The player can double the bet by clicking the button “Double” or “x2”. In this case, he is supposed to get another card, but only one. A player can double only if two starting cards give a “hard” combination for 9-11 points. If one of the Ace cards and a “soft” pair comes out, doubling is prohibited. You cannot double also if the player has already taken an additional card.
In Double Exposure Blackjack, you can split the cards, if at the hand the player received a pair of the same value. You can separate different cards of 10 points, for example, Dame and King. The player who pressed the “Split” button automatically makes a separate bet for each combination, equal to the initial one. On the boxes, which turned out after the division, it is allowed to make a double. To divided Aces you can get only one card. If the second card is “ten”, then this combination is not considered “blackjack”. If the player received an Ace again – you can split again. It is possible to divide a hand on one box no more than 4 times.
A player gets a win if:
- collected more points than the dealer. Payouts – 1:1;
- dealer’s bust. Payouts – 1:1;
- the player received “blackjack” at the hand, while the dealer has any other combination, except for “blackjack”. The payout is 1:1.
It is worth considering that the individual rules or payments’ amounts may vary depending on the online casino and Double Exposure Blackjack version. Therefore, we recommend before starting the game to familiarize yourself with all the rules and the payment table on the online casino site.
