Strategic Ways To Play Blackjack

Blackjack Variants: Sidebet for More

When blackjack first arrived on America soil, it did not do well. To compensate for this, various casinos offered the game's namesake hand, the black jack, for good payouts. Variants immediately came about, attempting to increase the game's popularity. Most of these are simply addition or categories to apply to blackjack, which could immensely lengthen the fun value of blackjack.

A popular variation, one that is becoming more used is called Over/Under Thirteen. Not quite a change in the game, Over Under Thirteen gives you the option of pitching in a side bet of whether or not your starting hand would total over fourteen or lower than thirteen. In this variant and for this sidebet only, your Aces will always have a value of one and the casino immediately wins the sidebet. The returns are usually one-to-one, which is even money.

Red/Black is another sidebet variation for Blackjack. The target of the sidebet is the dealer's upcard and whether or not it is red or black. For this sidebet, the house automatically wins on a two and like over under, the payout is one-to-one. Blackjack switch actually changes the mechanic of the game, allowing you two hands with identical bets and giving you the option of switching around the second cards as you will. This gives the players the tilt and to make up for it, the dealer will push the players' hands when the dealer has a total of twenty-two.

Royal match is a sidebet variation for blackjack where the player bets on whether or not their starting cards have the same suit. They payout is initially three to one, but if the player gets king and queen suited, the payout for this particular sidebet increases to a whopping ten to one.

Double exposure is unique among blackjack variants, dealer cards are both face up, offering a massive tactical advantage to all the players. As this changes the tactics and leans heavily towards the players, some measures had to be taken to balance out the odds. There are no blackjack bonuses for this variation and the dealer always wins on a tie.

Blackjack is itself, a tactical and mathematical game - but people often look for variation. If you are one of those players, suggest this to your game organizer or to your friends on your next game night. Applying these sidebets could both increase the win payout and of course, the fun!
