This game is a modification of Blackjack, so if you are familiar with Blackjack, you will have no trouble mastering this game. First, read the Blackjack Switch Rules. Return to this page after you have learned the rules.
To play the game:
Select a chip by clicking on it. Now click on a bet area to increase your bet by the chip amount. Every click on the bet area increases your bet, every right-click decreases your bet.
There are two kinds of bet areas – normal and ‘Super Match’ bet. Normal bet area is any of the two larger areas, ‘Super Match’ bet area is the small area. Remember that by clicking on the normal bet area, you actually place two identical bets – one for each of your hands.
After you have placed your bets, click the Deal button.
Use the Hit, Stand, Double, Split, Insurance and Swtich buttons as required.
If you want to play another round, press New Game. Then place a bet as described above and click the Deal button, or click Rebet to place the same bet as in the previous round.
This is an optional bet, you do not need to place a super bet to play the game. To place a super bet, place the chip(s) in the small circle between the normal bet areas. Super bet wins if your 4 initial cards contain 2 or more cards of the same kind (pair of Jacks, three Aces etc.) The win ratios are written on the table.

Double the wager and gives you a third card.
Request one more card.

Blackjack Switch Rules
The object of Blackjack Switch is for the total of your cards in either hand to be closer to 21 than the dealer’s cards, without exceeding 21. Card values are the same as in standard Blackjack – aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards as their face value.
The rules are the same as in standard Blackjack (see here). Except you have two hands, which you play in turn – first the right and then the left one, then the dealer plays his hand. You may split, double, take insurance etc. just like in standard Blackjack. Another exception from the standard Blackjack is that the dealer always hits soft 17 – meaning he always draws one more card when he has 17 with an ace counted as 11. Also, ‘Blackjacks’ pay 1/1 instead of 3/2 although more ‘Blackjacks’ are created due to the ‘switching’ option. (See below).
Prior to any hits, you may switch the top cards of your top hands.
Dealer will “push” on a total of 22 (except ‘Blackjacks’ will still win). This means that whenever the dealer’s total reaches 22 then all bets are ‘pushed’, regardless of their total except if a player has a ‘Blackjack’, which will still win.
The small circle between the standard bet areas is the super bet area. The super bet wins if your initial 4 cards contain 2 or more matching cards. For example, if your right hand is a Queen and a Six, and your left hand a Queen and a King, your super bet wins. The win ratios are written on the table.
