Multi Hand Blackjack

Blackjack (or 21) is a very quick and exciting game and is governed by only one number and that is 21. Here cards that are held in any hand, be it the players hand or the dealers hand has to add up to 21 or be as close to 21 as possible without going over this number.

A full deck of 52 cards is used to play this game. Two to Nine are taken at face value but Ace can either be one or eleven and Ten, Jack, Queen or King all have the value of ten. If you are given a Ace and a Ten, Jack, Queen or King you will immediately win the game as the value of the cards you are holding will add up to exactly 21.

However if you have cards that are low in value, example, a three and a two, you will then only have a value of five and can then ask the dealer for a “hit”. The dealer will then give you another card from the top of the stack and this card will then be added to the value that you already have in your hand.

A fourth or fifth card can be requested, but remember that one you go over the amount of 21, you will be bust and out of the game. It is always advisable that once you get closer to the number 21, to stand and rather take your chances than go bust and kick yourself right out of the game.

Should you hold two cards of the same value, these two cards can be split into two separate hands, a second wager will have to be placed as both hands will be looked at as separate interties. Cards cannot be swapped or shared between hands.

Multi-Hand Blackjack is when each player plays with more than one hand at the beginning of the game. If a split happens subsequently, it will just add another set to the players’ hands. Playing Multi-Hand Blackjack requires your mind to be sharp and decision to be precise and it definitely increases your chances of being a winner over and over again.
