The basics of 21 Duel is very similar to a classic game of Online Blackjack, with the goal being to be closest to 21 without going over. However, 21 Duel Blackjack adds some extra excitement and competition, where players have the opportunity to win big! For strategies, pointers, and fun facts, please see our History of Blackjack and Blackjack Rules pages.
Players will place their bets as usual. However, when cards are dealt, each player will receive one card up and the other down. The Dealer will be dealt two cards facing down. Two cards will be dealt face up in the center of the table, and these cards will be “community cards.” At this point, you may choose to fold or play. If you fold, you lose your original bet, but if you play, you will make a second bet, upping the ante and increasing your chances to win more money.
If you decide to play, and place your second bet, then you must choose one of the community cards to add to your hand. Then you decide whether to “hit” or “stand” based on your new hand with the added community card. Just as in traditional Blackjack, if you go over 21, you “bust,” and lose your entire bet. If you are playing multiple hands, you will play all of your hands before the Dealer plays.

A great feature of 21 Duel Blackjack is 2 Up Side Bet, which is an option to bet into a side pot before any cards are shown. If you play a bet in this side pot, and you get a pair somewhere within your hand, you will receive a payout of 3 to 1. If you're dealt 3 cards of the same value, the payout increases to 20 to 1. This is a spectacular opportunity for each player to win big, not just playing against the Dealer, but by betting on their own hand!
