How to Play Match Play 21
Match Play 21 is another member of the Blackjack family. Blackjack is one of the most played First because not everyone is familiar with Blackjack I will start there. Blackjack is a game wherein many casinos has generally the same flow, however, some use a different amount of decks & things like that. The traditional game of Blackjack is where players are pinned against the dealer, specifically each player plays the dealer, not each other. Players will be dealt 2 cards, as will the dealer. The dealer’s second card will be face up, as with the players. As the player, your best bet is to gain a 21 this is called “Blackjack” if you are unable to achieve that, the person closest to 21, without going over is the winner of that hand. Now there are other things that also go along with Blackjack. Cards 2-9 are taken at face value and in Blackjack 10’s, Jacks Queens & Kings are worth 10 points and Aces can be worth either 1 point or 10 points depending on your hand. To “Hit” in Blackjack means that you’re asking the dealer for another card because your hand is nowhere near 21. To “stand” Is basically like saying “I’m good where I’m at”. There are also, of course, the options to split, this is where you want to split the two cards, to gain 2 more which makes 2 separate hands with that said, a player will need to also make a bet equal to the first hand, on the second.
With Match Play 21, the rules are typically the same however there’s a major difference between the two, Match Play 21 is played with 2 decks of cards each deck with the ‘ten’ cards taken out of it. This is because it increases the chance for 7’s and things like that. Some other changes to the game also include; When the dealer is given a hard 17, they must stand on it. When a hand is ‘hard’ this means that the person has a face card and a number. The dealer also has to stand on a soft 18. Players are allowed to surrender in the game of Match Play 21, unlike in Blackjack. When a player wants’s to split they have to make sure it’s on a great hand this is because, within the game of Match Play 21, the player will only be allowed to split 3 times. Also, a “Blackjack” is not rewarded in this game for a split hand.
