Blackjack with a Twist
OK, so the above conditions help create a winning environment, but blackjack surrender isn't your average casino game. In fact, thanks to two interesting little twists, you'll be able to enhance your chances of winning dramatically:
As its name suggests, Blackjack surrender is all about giving up in unfavourable spots. Basically, if the dealer has checked for blackjack and you feel your first two cards won't make the grade, you can opt to surrender your hand. If you choose to surrender, you'll get to keep half your bet, avoid the humiliation of defeat and, basically, live to fight another day.
7 Card Charlie
If you're the type of player that likes to push their luck, Blackjack surrender will also reward you for your bravery. Anytime you don't go bust after drawing seven cards, you'll make what's known as a "7 card Charlie" and automatically win an even money payout.
In short, if you can work out when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em, blackjack surrender offers a host of ways to win.
