Double Attack Blackjack is a variation of blackjack that became very popular in Atlantic City casinos. The object of this game is to end up with a total closer to 21 that is higher than the dealer's one without going bust. According to Double Attack Blackjack rules all the tens are removed from the deck and usually the game is played with 6 decks. In this version of blackjack the dealer wins a push.
One of the specific features of Double Attack Blackjack variations is the optional bet (called Bust It) that the dealer will bust with three cards in the hand. Depending on the value of the dealer's third card in the busted hand the payouts are:
Six- 15 to 1
Seven- 10 to 1
Eight- 8 to 1
Nine - 6 to 1
Ten - 3 to 1
If the dealer holds an 8 and he gets another 8 of the same suit or color, the player can additionally win:
8 of the same suit - 200 to 1
8 of the same color - 50 to 1
Moreover, in Double Attack Blackjack the player wins even money on a natural rather than 3 to 2 as in most traditional blackjack variations.
Each time you play Double Attack Blackjack remember to check the game rules at the casino you gamble at as these are general rules and they might vary from casino to casino.
