Equipment

  1. 6 decks of regular 52 card playing cards.
  2. Standard size Blackjack table with specialized felt. Seating ranges from one to seven players.

Rules

  1. The value of each card is the same as regular Blackjack. All face cards have a value of ten, Aces count as one or eleven, and all other cards count the value of their number.
  2. The dealer may not take additional cards once they reach a value of hard 16. 
  3. All first cards shall be dealt face down. To collect a win on the first card, the player must turn the card face up. The remaining cards to all players will be dealt face down unless a player wants to double down, split cards, or has a 2 card win. In those situations, the cards must be turned up before the hand continues.
  4. The dealer’s first card is dealt face down, and all remaining dealer’s cards are dealt face up.
  5. All players and the dealer receiving cards that total over a value of 20 are considered to have a busted hand and a loss. If the dealer busts, all remaining hands win their bet.
  6. Any hand can be a push with the dealer if the card values are the same. This results in a tie, there is no win or loss.

Objectives of the Game

  1. Each player plays against the dealer, trying to reach the value of 11 with one card or the value of 20 with two or more cards. 
  2. Three ways to win:
    • Obtain the value of 11 with the first card only. This pays the value of the player’s bet, or 1:1.
    • Obtain the value of 20 with the first two cards only. This pays the value of the player’s bet, or 1:1. However, if the first two cards are a pair of suited Kings, a pair of suited Queens or a pair of suited Jacks, the player is paid one and one half times the bet, or 3:2.
    • Obtain a higher winning value than the dealer with two or more cards. This pays the value of your bet, or 1:1.

Dealing Procedure

  1. The dealer places one card at each player’s station and one to himself. All first cards are dealt face down. 
  2. If an Ace is the first card dealt to any player or the dealer, the card is turned up by the player or dealer. If only the dealer has the first card Ace, all players lose their bets and a new hand begins. If only the player (or players) has the first Ace, the player (or players) wins the value of their bet, or 1:1, and the hand continues.
  3. If there is no Ace on the first card dealt, all second cards are dealt to the players face down. The dealer’s second card is dealt face up. If any player or the dealer has an exact value of 20 with two cards, the cards must be turned face up. The players with an exact value of 20 with two cards are paid the value of their bet or 1:1. However, if the first two cards are a pair of suited Kings, a pair of suited Queens or a pair of suited Jacks, the player is paid one and one half times the bet, or 3:2. If only the dealer has a 20 with two cards, all players lose their bets, and a new hand begins. If a push occurs, that player does not lose his bet. 
  4. If no players or the dealer have a value of 20 after two cards, one player at a time may receive additional cards until that player chooses to stand. If any player exceeds the value of 20 with all cards dealt, that player busts. After all players receive their desired cards, the dealer will deal himself cards until he either has a hard value of 16 or busts.

Miscellaneous Notes

  1. To be sure player receives the number of cards they desire, each player must give a visual signal to the dealer for each card they desire.
  2. Any player may double down or split cards of equal value. If the player doubles down, the cards must be turned face up. The player only receives one additional card which is dealt face up. If the player splits cards of equal value, the cards must be turned up. The player then is considered to be playing 2 hands, and the dealer deals all remaining cards to that player face up.
  3. No insurance allowed on Triple Win 20.
