How and where to play best free blackjack games

Blackjack is a popular card game and it is not surprisingly that there are a lot of free blackjack games and their variations that are widely played in both online and brick and mortar casinos all over the world.

Although the ultimate goal of twenty one is always the same, but there are still quite significant distinctions concerning blackjack playing rules within such popular game's variations as Spanish 21, Blackjack Switch and Vegas Strip Blackjack, which players could easily find and play for free in best blackjack casinos. Every gambler need to try out free blackjack online game before wagering the real cash.

Spanish 21

Spanish 21 is probably the most widespread and favorite twenty one game's version due to rather profitable playing rules, which allow such options as surrender, double down and hitting at any moment of play session.

Spanish 21 is played with usual 6 - 8 card decks without 10's while other cards of 10 points value (Kings, Queens and Jacks) are still included.

The most specific feature of Spanish 21 concerns some additional rewards for certain card combinations, which include cards of values of 6-7-8 points and 7-7-7 points. The latter set of cards provides the largest payoff for players in case the dealer also gets the card of 7 points worth among his or her combination.

Blackjack Switch

Blackjack Switch is another popular twenty one playing variation, which is favorable in sense that it offers blackjack players an opportunity to play two hands separately.

Playing with two hands gamblers could stake in a different way, though at the very beginning equal bets should be made. In addition before the first blackjack move players are allowed to switch between their hands by exchanging two cards of the highest value in both combinations.

There also additional bonuses implied if gamblers have in their initial card sets two or more cards of equal rank.

Vegas Strip Blackjack

Vegas Strip Blackjack has a lot of common with classical free blackjack games with the following exceptions:

  • it is obligatory for the dealer to stand if he or she gets 17 points;
  • it is allowed to double after splitting as well as on first cards of any rank;
  • it is acceptable if players perform re-splitting for the second time while they are prohibited to re-split two aces;
  • the dealer is to check whether he or she has a face card of 10 points value or an ace in his or her initial set of cards before players make their bets.
