Double Exposure Blackjack vs Traditional Blackjack
Double Exposure Blackjack is a hugely popular game with new online blackjack players and is played with 8 decks of 52 cards. Double Exposure Blackjack differs in the sense that both the dealers cards are shown (exposed). Most rules from traditional blackjack apply however there are a few changes in some rules which are in place to compensate for the huge advantage players have in seeing both cards the dealer pulls.
- House wins all ties except on blackjack
- Player blackjack pays even money
- Player may split a pair only once
The house advantage based on the added rules highlighted above bring the house edge to 0.69%. Double Exposure Blackjack allows its players to split any two cards that have equal value. However a player will only be dealt one card when splitting a pair of aces. Doubling is only an option if the player is dealt a 9, 10 or 11.
