Blackjack Switch enables you to play two hands against the dealer…but with an added difference that works in your favour! Unlike in classic online blackjack where the hands you are dealt are the hands you must play, in Blackjack Switch you'll have the option of switching the top cards of each of your hands with one another, thus increasing your chances of winning!
First, you'll place your bets — up to €300 per hand. You must bet equal amounts for each of your two hands played.
Then you'll be dealt your cards. Before you decide to hit, stand, or split (as in regular blackjack), you'll get the chance to click on the "Switch" button. This will switch the top cards of both hands with each other. You'll see your new hands and decide if you want to play as such, or if you'd rather switch back (which you easily have the option of doing).
Here's an example: Let's say you're dealt a 5 and a 10 for one hand (totalling 15) and a 9 and 5 for the other (totalling 14). If you want, you can switch one hand's top card (the 10) with the other hand's top card (the 5), giving you two new hands, a 5 and 5 (totalling 10) and a 9 and 10 (totalling 19) — much better hands!
Then you'll proceed as normal, playing each hand. You can double up on any two cards, as well as after a split, but you may not re-split. Then the dealer plays their hand. Because of your distinct advantage with switching your cards, the dealer receive an advantage as well—a score of 22 for the dealer is not considered a bust, but a push against all of your hands, minus a blackjack.
Another rule added to even the playing field between you and online casino dealer is that you will only receive a 1:1 payout for a blackjack, rather than a 3:2 which is awarded during traditional blackjack.
