This exciting blackjack variant is becoming increasingly popular. As the name suggests, it’s different from the classic blackjack game in that participants play with more than one hand. There are seven players in every game of Multi-Hand Blackjack and one dealer (the House). Every hand played is against the House rather than other players. Players can play more than one hand in each table, which boosts their chances of winning.
The aim of Multi-Hand Blackjack is to beat the House. This can be done in several ways. If a player is dealt a Blackjack (this is the term for when the first two cards dealt equal twenty-one), they’ll beat the House – unless the House also has a Blackjack, in which case it’s a draw! The player will also win if their last point is higher than the House’s, without exceeding twenty-one, or if the House is dealt cards equalling more than twenty-one.
One of the main reasons for this game’s popularity is that it gives players a chance to boost their potential winnings by placing lots of separate wagers on each hand.
The point system in Multi-Hand Blackjack looks like this:
Being dealt more cards in a bid to get nearer a total of 21, without exceeding it.
Each hand is treated separately, no matter how many hands are involved, so different amounts can be wagered during a session.
The game is usually played with six to eight decks.
The usual payout with this game is 3:2.
