Game Summary

Blackjack switch is a variant of Blackjack where the player plays with two hands - the twist being he/she can swap the starting cards between each hand to optimise your hand. For example if you were dealt

Hand A: Jack & King
Hand B: Ace & Ace

You could swap the cards around to get:

Hand A: Jack & Ace (Blackjack)
Hand B: Ace & King (Blackjack)


It's important to point out while the player gets a bonus of being able to swap cards the dealer also get some favourbale rules to balance out the game - a dealer 22 results in a push rather than a bust and blackjacks only payout even money.

  • Dealer hits a soft 17.
  • The player must make two bets of equal size.
  • Cards will be dealt face up.
  • Dealer will peek for blackjack with an ace or ten up. If the dealer has a blackjack all player hands will immediatley lose, except a player blackjack will push.
  • The player may switch the second card dealt to each hand.
  • Player may double on any 2 cards.
  • Player may double after a split.
  • Player may split once
  • Blackjacks pay even money.
  • A dealer total of 22 will push against any player total of 21 or less (blackjack will still beat a dealer 22).

According to the Wizard of odds the house edge for this vairant is 0.17%
