General Rules

Playing Blackjack Switch you have two hands, which you play in turn - first the right and then the left one, then the dealer plays his hand. You may split, double, take insurance etc. just like in standard Blackjack.

The rules are the same as in standard Playtech Blackjack, but there are some exceptions.

  • The dealer always hits soft 17
  • Blackjack pay 1/1 instead of 3/2 (although more Blackjacks are created due to the 'switching' option)

Switch option

Prior to any hits, you may switch the top cards of your two hands.

Push 22 Rule

Dealer will "push" on a total of 22 (except 'Blackjacks' will still win). This means that whenever the dealer's total reaches 22 then all bets are 'pushed', regardless of their total except if a player has a 'Blackjack', which will still win.

Super Match

The super bet wins if your initial 4 cards contain 2 or more matching cards. The win ratios are written on the table.
