Double Exposure Blackjack Game Tutorial

Game Rules

In Double Exposure Blackjack the cards of the dealer will also be dealt open, hence the name Double Exposure Blackjack. There are certain rules a player must apply to:

  • The card values are as follows: the numbered cards 2-10 are worth their face value, aces count as 1 or 11; and the jack, queen, and king count as 10 points.
  • The goal of the game is to score a blackjack or 21 points, or to come as close to 21 points as possible and thus beating the dealer.
  • When you get 21 points with your first two cards, this is called a blackjack.
  • A blackjack always beats another hand with 21 points.
  • The hand closest to 21 points wins.
  • All hands above 21 points lose automatically, this is called a Bust.
  • When a draw occurs, the dealer always wins, except when both sides have a blackjack.
  • When the dealer gets 17 or higher, no extra cards may be drawn.
  • At 16 or lower the dealer must draw.


Double is possible in Double Exposure Blackjack. You are allowed to this when your first cards have a hard value of 9, 10, or 11. A hard value means a hand without an Ace. Because an Ace counts as 1 or 11 a hand that contains an Ace is called a soft hand. It may be that you get a hand where the Ace can only count as 1, in that case it is a hard hand. The double down bet is the same as the initial bet. After a double down you will get one extra card after which you automatically “stay”. You are allowed to double down after a split.


When you get two cards of the same value, you are allowed to split. One hand thus becomes two hands. You can draw multiple cards on both hands, except for hands that contain an Ace, in which case you only may draw one card. When splitting, the initial bet will be doubled. A split hand can never get an official blackjack, a hand with a 10 point card and an ace simply counts as 21.
