Spanish 21 is a variation of the game of Blackjack in which the players' Blackjack or 21 always beats the dealer. Players are able to surrender their wager and save half of their bet or rescue a double-down if not confident with their hand. Match the Dealer is also an option in which the player can wager to see if any initial cards "match the dealer's" first card in rank - and if so, will get paid a bonus on the designated pay table.
HOW TO PLAY
Players first make a standard Blackjack wager and the optional Match the Dealer wager. The player and the dealer will get two starting cards, as in standard blackjack.
Players may surrender a hand, saving half of their bet. Before a player can surrender, the dealer will check to see if they have Blackjack when a face card is showing first, and after insurance is offered to players. There is no surrender when the dealer has a Blackjack.
Double Down Rescue
Players may double on two or more cards and rescue the last portion of their double down. For example, if a player doubles down and does not like what is dealt, the last portion of their bet may be rescued. If the player's double down was for less, the original bet is lost and cards will be removed.
When players make 21 they win immediately and cards are removed from the round. A bonus is paid out to players with certain 21's made. 21 bonuses are not applied if the player doubles down. No special wager is necessary and the payouts will be designated on the specified pay table. A Super Bonus is also awarded to players when the first three cards are suited 7's and the dealer's up card is any 7. Payouts for the Super Bonus can be up to $5,000. The Super is void if the players double down or split.
