Blackjack Switch is a variation of standard blackjack that takes just a few minutes to learn. Of course if you already know how to play blackjack, that's a plus. Like regular blackjack, Blackjack Switch is played with a standard 52-card English deck. There are no bonus cards or jokers used. This is a fun variation of standard blackjack.

How to Play

In blackjack switch, each player is required to make a bet on each of two hands.

The dealer will then deliver two face-up cards to each betting circle and two cards to themselves. One of the dealer's cards will be exposed. Now the fun begins.

At this point the player is allowed to switch their second card on the first hand with the second card on their second hand. For example, if the player is dealt a hard 15 and hard 16 as in the photo above, then the player would switch the ten for the five and make two hands, a 20 and an 11.

The Weird Stuff

  • Dealer 22 makes all remaining hands a push
  • Blackjack pays even money

Rules for Splitting Hands

  • Split each hand only once
  • Split aces receive on card per hand

Rules for Doubling Down

  • Double down on any two cards
  • Double down after a split

Super Match

The super match is a side (bonus) bet that pays even money when a player's first two cards are a pair. Three of a kind pays 5 to 1 and two pairs pay 8 to 1. If the player is lucky enough to get four of a kind, the payoff is 40 to 1.

Blackjack Switch Strategy

Yes, there are a few things you'll want to consider before playing Blackjack Switch. Since you are in control of your hands, know that you'll want to balance your hands on occasion, while other times it is better to make one very strong hand.

With that in mind, you obviously want to make one of your hands a 21, that's best, but what about other hands?

If the best hand is 21, 20 and 19 follow. Next, a pair of aces are better than 11, 10 or 9. All of these hands are better than an 18 or lower hand, so try for these first. If the dealer is showing a 7 or 8, there's a good chance they have a 10 underneath, so two hands of 17 or 18 is better than one hand of 19 and a hand you have to hit, such as 16.

Interesting facts

Blackjack Switch is a casino gambling game invented by Geoff Hall and patented in 2009. It is based on blackjack, but differs in that two hands, rather than one, are dealt to each playing position, and the player is initially allowed to exchange ("switch") the top two cards between hands. Natural blackjacks are paid 1:1 instead of the standard...
