Double exposure is a blackjack variation in which both dealer cards are exposed. Naturally there are other rule changes that favor the dealer to compensate. Although the house edge is greater then conventional blackjack it still ranks as one of the best bets in the casino if played properly. If you can find the game this section will tell you how to play it.

Rules

The usual rules are the same as blackjack except:

Both dealer cards are exposed

Dealer wins on all ties, except on a natural blackjack

Player blackjack pays even money

Player may split only once

Rules that can vary include but are not limited to:

Dealer hits or stands on soft 17

Tied blackjacks either push or go to the player

Player may or may not double after a split

Player may double on any first to cards or not

Player may split more than once

Player may or may not split unlike 10 value cards (for example queen and king)
