Welcome to Double Deck Blackjack
One of the more popular variations of the popular Blackjack games is Double Deck Blackjack. Today, we will dive into everything you need to know about how to play Double Deck Blackjack. In order to get into the action though, you need to create an account over at Slots Paradise and deposit money into your account as well as redeem your bonuses. Let’s dive into it.
Objective of Double Deck Blackjack
The objective of Double Deck Blackjack is the exact same as traditional Blackjack as you want to try to get as close to 21 points without going over (which is called “busting”). You need to be closer than the dealer is to 21 points as if the dealer is closer than you, that is considered a loss on your spot.
The only thing is that you will only be able to see one of the two cards that are a part of the dealer’s hand before your turn is over. That means you have to predict what the dealer could have to decide if you are content with where your cards are.
What Makes Double Deck Blackjack Different Than Traditional Blackjack?
The major difference here is in the name. This game involves two different decks of cards as the potential cards to be used. This makes it a little easier to predict which card will be dealt next as you have two decks to think through and not a crazy amount that normal Blackjack tables usually use. However, everything else from payouts to dealing is the same as a traditional Blackjack game would be.
How to Play Double Deck Blackjack
In order to play Double Deck Blackjack, you have to place a wager at the table and decide how many different hands you are willing to play at once. The dealer will then deal each hand two cards and themselves two cards with one facing down and one shown to the entire table. The player will add up the value of the two cards and decide if they would like to “stand” (move on without adding an additional card) or “hit” (add another card to that hand). If both cards are the same in the hand, the player has a third option to “split” (divide the cards in that hand into two different hands with those cards being the base). However, if you decide to split then you need to wager an additional hand.
Once you are finished with your hands, the dealer will reveal their second card and attempt to get to 21 or as close as possible. If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand is without going over then you are declared the winner.
Card Values and Paytable
The card values in Double Deck Blackjack are the exact same as traditional Blackjack. In case you need a refresher, the numbered cards are all valued by their face value. The jack, queen, and kings are all valued at 10 points while the ace is the only flexible card as it can be either one point or 11 depending on which will benefit the hand the most.
The paytable is the exact same as traditional Blackjack as well as if you have a blackjack (an ace with a face card/10 of any suit) then it pays out 3:2. If the dealer is showing an ace, you can pay for insurance and that would pay 2:1 as it does as well.

Double Deck Blackjack Tips and Strategy
With the game being so similar to traditional Blackjack, the tips and strategies are essentially the same thing. One thing that you should be keen on is what cards are being played. There are only two decks in this game so that means there are a total of eight of each cards (eight twos, eight jacks, eight aces, etc). If you have a pair of kings, that drastically changes what the dealer could have as their down card and also what could be coming next. You will be able to see other people’s hands as you play as well so depending on which seat you are at, you could see a bunch of cards and use quick math to decide if the next card you will be dealt is going to benefit you or make you bust.
