How to Play Spanish 21
BLACKJACK. Player Blackjack always beats Dealer's Blackjack and pays odds of 3/2.
LATE SURRENDER. If a Player is dissatisfied with his first two cards, he may surrender instead of 'taking a hit' or 'standing', thereby forfeiting ½ of the original bet and removing himself from the current round of play. The Player must indicate to the Dealer, his intent to surrender. Surrendering is not allowed on a Dealer blackjack.
PAIR SPLITTING. A Player may split cards of equal value including aces creating up to four hands - hitting and doubling of split hands including aces is allowed. Bonus 21 payouts are paid on split hands. Splitting or doubling voids the Super Bonus.
DOUBLE DOWN. A Player may Double Down once with two or more cards, on any total even after splitting. When doubling, a Player can place any wager up to a maximum of his original bet. Bonus 21 payouts are not paid on doubled hands (see Bonus 21 Payouts below).
DOUBLE DOWN RESCUE. If after doubling, a Player is dissatisfied with his non-busted hand, he may rescue or take back the doubled portion of his bet and forfeit his original wager. A double down rescue removes the Player from the current round of play. Spanish 21 also features nine different Bonus 21 Payouts. Remember, doubling voids all Bonus 21 Payouts.
SUPER BONUS. Spanish 21 also pays a Super Bonus of up to $5000 to the winner and $50 to every other betting Player!
- A Super Bonus occurs when the Player holds suited 7-7-7 and the Dealer draws 7 (any suit). A bet of $5 to $24 pays $1000. A bet of $25 or more pays $5000.
- When a Super Bonus occurs, the Envy Bonus of $50 is paid to all other betting Players at the table, no side bet required. Splitting and doubling voids Super Bonus.
MATCH THE DEALER. In addition to the Spanish 21 bet, a Player can make a Match the Dealer wager by placing a bet in the Match the Dealer betting area. The minimum Match the Dealer bet is $1, the maximum is the amount of the regular Spanish 21 bet up to a maximum of $25. Once all bets and Match bets are made, the Dealer will issue each Player two cards face up and himself two cards, one face up. If either of your two cards match the Dealer's up card, the player wins! All Match the Dealer bets are settled before the start of the Spanish 21 round.
