21 Duel Blackjack

Traditional Blackjack is always interesting and challenging, but the new game known as 21 Duel Blackjack puts a fantastic spin on the older rules. For one thing, it requires only an ante and not a full wager to enter the game. The player then strikes the deal button and is issued two cards – one in the face up position and one facing downward. The dealer receives two cards in the face down position. There are two “community” cards appearing in the center of the table too, and these are dealt in the face up position to allow both the player and the dealer to see them.

The player of 21 Duel Blackjack is the first to have a turn and they can fold if their hand is lousy, which loses the original ante placed before the deal, or they can continue in the hand. This requires them to place an additional wager and to choose one of the community cards facing upwards in the center of the table. When this is done the player will see a screen indicating their current total, and they can again choose to hit or stand. If they stand they keep the two upward facing cards and lose the one facing downward. If they hit, they can improve the value of the two upward facing cards, but still run the risk of a bust.

The next part of a round of 21 Duel Blackjack involves the dealer making their choices. First they must show one of their cards and select the remaining community card. If their total is lower than 16 they are obliged to hit, but if the total is 17 or higher they stand. At this point the hands are revealed and if the dealer is holding less than 13 the player gets the ante and bets.
