Match Play 21
In case you’re not familiar with the name of this popular Blackjack variation, in many parts of the world, they call it the Spanish 21. Being so popular and rewarding, Blackjack has birthed plenty of similar games. However, none quite so popular as this one.
Match Play 21 is nearly identical to its parent game; you bet the same way, but the chance to win money is far higher. Additionally, cards and their worth are the same as well. Face cards are worth ten points, Ace card is worth either 1 or 11 points. Although, this version doesn’t allow for the 10 card so you won’t find it in a deck.
As usual, you bet against the dealer along with other players. You get two cards face-up, and only one of the dealer’s cards is shown. Now, since everything is the same, what makes Match Play 21 so famous? Well, for one, it gives the player the ability to surrender. This comes under special conditions though - only if a dealer doesn’t get 21 either.
Also, in this variation, should both the dealer and the player get 21, the player wins. This is not something you could see in regular Blackjack where this case scenario ends with a tie or a push.
