How to Play Double Attack Blackjack
Like any Playtech blackjack variant, the aim of the game when you launch a double attack is to make a total as close to 21 (or 21 exactly) as possible without going over. However, unlike standard games, the way you put it on the dealer is different. To break it down for you, here's the flow of a standard game:
· You bet an amount between £1 and £5,000 in the "ante" box.
· Before you receive any cards, the dealer's first card is dealt face up.
· At this point, you have to decide whether you want to launch a second attack.
· If the dealer's card is weak (i.e. a 3, 4, 5 or 6), it's best to place a second bet.
· If the dealer's card is strong (i.e. a 2, 7, 8, 9, 10 or an Ace), it's best to stick with your initial bet.
After you've decided on your attack strategy, the hit/stand/double/surrender process takes place as it does in any standard blackjack variant. Finally, the dealer's second card is revealed, they draw to at least 17 and then the winner is determined.
If this isn't enough to get your pulse racing, you can also choose to place a side bet. Known as "Bust It", this extra bet allows you to receive a payout worth up to 15:1 on your money if the dealer busts on a certain starting card. Additionally, you could win up to 200:1 on your stake if the first three cards dealt are 8, 8, and 8.
Basically, if you want more action and a better way to pounce on the dealer's weakness, Double Attack Blackjack is a game you should definitely play.
