Play Half Double Blackjack Online at Mansion Casino UK
Half Double Blackjack? Huh? What’s that all about?! Half double is kind of a contradiction, because half a double is a….single! So why bother doubling in the first place? At this point you’re probably scratching your head and racking your brain trying to solve the riddle that you’ve been presented with. Before you think too hard, read this from beginning to end and you’ll feel less muddled.
First point to clear up – THIS IS NOT A RIDDLE! Nope, it’s a real, actual, proper casino card game, and what’s more, it’s a variation of the well-respected online blackjack, so it’s not just any old game.
Now that we’ve got your attention, let’s go into what this game is all about, because the game itself is as intriguing as its name.
Why Choose Half Double Blackjack
Half Double Blackjack was created to bring more excitement to the lives of loyal Blackjack players. Not that your lives aren’t already exciting, but if you’re totally honest with yourself you’ll come to a realisation that as much as you love the game, there are only so many times you can play it over and over again.
In comes Half Double Blackjack with the answer to this dilemma - you’ll get to remain as loyal as ever to your favourite card pastime, and will still get the added thrills that you crave.
The game works the same as the regular version with your goal being to get closer to 21 than the dealer, but not to go over this number. The cards all have the same values and you have the same options when playing, such as to hit, stand, double, split and take insurance. Ten-Card Charlie also applies in this version.
What Makes Half Double Blackjack Stand Out
So what actually makes Half Double Blackjack different from any other version of the game? It’s all got to do with the dealer’s hand. Usually the dealer will check his face-down card before the playing begins if his first face-up card is an Ace or a card equivalent to 10 in value. However, in this version, he’ll leave this step out and the playing will continue. So in cases where you’ve taken out a double wager and it turns out that he does indeed have Blackjack, you’ll only lose half of this doubled wager. Now the name of the game makes more sense, right?
