This version of the game is played out in the same way as the original version, except with Blackjack Surrender the player has the option to surrender after the first two cards are dealt. If this option is taken, the player will recover half of his/her stake.
In this game the player plays two hands at the same time, and after the first four cards are dealt has the option to switch the top card from each hand to try and improve their chances of winning.

Originating in casinos based in Atlantic City, this version of blackjack has slightly different rules to the original. For example, the dealer can stand on 17 and they can also look to see if they’ve got a blackjack. Players can also split their cards up to a maximum of three times.
European blackjack is another type of blackjack game which uses only two decks of cards. There’s no hole card in the European variation of the game, either. Doubling down is also restricted. In European blackjack, players can only do this if they have a hand of 9, 10 or 11, whereas in American players can do so whenever they wish.
This variation on the game of real money blackjack allows players to make a side bet on whether either they or the dealer (or both) will be dealt two of the same cards. If the first two cards are a ‘perfect’ pair – meaning that they are a pair in the exact same suit – then the payout can be as much as 25 to 1.
