Multihand Blackjack is played against the dealer and your goal is simply beat the dealer’s hand total – on all of your hands. Take note that you don’t need to hit 21 to win; you simply need to put together a higher hand total than the house. Like other variations of the game, the standard rules apply. You are dealt 2 cards per hand played and the dealer is dealt 1 card initially and the other card/s after you have finalized your bets.
Based on the cards you’re holding and the dealer’s upcard, you can Hit, Stand, Double, Split or take Insurance. You are permitted to double on the following hand values: 9-10-11 but no doubling is allowed after splitting. Multihand Blackjack does not have a Surrender option and the dealer is only allowed to check for Blackjack at the end of the hand. Cards valued 2 – 10 assume their face value, royals are 10-value cards and Aces are 1 or 11.
