Match Play 21 Guide

Match Play 21, also known as Spanish 21, is a variation of Blackjack. Played with no Ten cards, other combinations drive the payout table. Try your luck at something quite different. With plenty of bonus hands and high payouts, this intriguing casino table game is certainly not your father’s Blackjack.

How to Play Match Play 21

The object of Match Play 21 is to come as close to 21 without going over, while still beating the Dealer.

Player’s Turn

Prior to receiving any cards, place your bet by clicking on the chips. You are dealt two cards face up. The Dealer is also dealt two cards, one up; one down. Click Hit to add another card to your hand. Click Stand to stop adding cards.

Surrender is allowed in Match Play 21. If you look at your cards and don’t think you can win, you can surrender half you bet and stop playing your hand. Insurance is also available – if the Dealer’s up card is an Ace, you can bet that the Dealer will get a blackjack. If they don’t, your bet is collected. If they do, you get double your insurance bet back.

Dealer’s Turn

Depending on the hand, the Dealer will hit or stand based on rules that the Dealer must follow.

You Win When

If the total value of your hand is closer to 21 than the Dealer, you win. You also win if the Dealer goes over 21 and you stayed below 21. If your total exceeds 21, you lose the amount you wagered.

There are special winning 21 hands that focus on lucky number seven.

The potential of winning when playing Match Play 21 Blackjack is much greater when you know the terms associated with the game.

Bet: Click on the chip that you want to wager.

Blackjack: Two cards totaling 21.

Bust: Total value of your hand exceeds 21. If you bust, your bet is lost. If the Dealer goes bust, you automatically win.

Deal: Clicking Deal begins the round of play after your bet has been placed. In this variation of Blackjack, you and the Dealer are both dealt two cards face up.

Double: Clicking Double, doubles your bet, and one additional card is dealt to your hand. Your hand automatically stands, and play continues.

Hit: Clicking Hit adds another card to your hand.

Split: If your first two cards are of the same value (such as 7-7 or 10-J), they can be split into two separate hands by clicking Split and doubling your bet. Note: Splitting Aces can only have one additional card can be dealt per hand. After splitting Aces, hands totalling 21 are considered 21s, and not Blackjack.
