Spanish 21 Gaming Guide

Spanish 21 is an exciting variation of Blackjack which combines the classic game with the multiple payoffs of a slot machine. Spanish 21 is like regular 21 (blackjack) with more options,
providing more fun and more ways to win. The game of Spanish 21 is played with Spanish decks. A Spanish deck consists of 48 cards; 2-9, J,Q,K,A; no number “10”cards. All cards count as face value with Kings, Queens and Jacks always counting as 10 and Aces as either 1 or 11.

SPANISH 21 IS PLAYED LIKE BLACKJACK WITH THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTIONS

Player’s Blackjack: Always Beats Dealer’s blackjack. Winning player’s blackjack wagers are paid at odds of 3-2.

Player’s Total of 21: Always Beats Dealer’s total of 21. However, a wager shall lose if the player has 21 in more than two cards and the dealer has a blackjack. Winning player’s wagers are paid at odds of 1-1. Certain player 21 totals result in additional Spanish 21 payouts. (See Spanish 21 Payouts.)

Pair Splitting: Players may split cards of equal value including Aces up to 3 times for a total of 4 hands. Players may draw additional cards on a split hand, including Aces. When a player doubles down on a split hand they may only receive one additional card.

Double Down: Players may make an additional wager up to their original amount and draw only one additional card. Players can double down one time with two or more cards, on any total including after splitting. No payouts of above 1-1 are paid on doubled hands. (not eligible for Spanish 21 or bonus payouts.)

Double Down Rescue: After doubling if a player is dissatisfied with a non-busted hand, the player may rescue (take back) the DOUBLED portion of the bet and forfeit the original wager.
Insurance: If the dealer’s face up card is an Ace, the player may take insurance which is a separate wager up to one half of the player’s original wager prior to any additional cards being drawn on the round. A player can take insurance when they have a blackjack, even though the blackjack cannot lose.

Insurance: If the dealer’s face up card is an Ace, the player may take insurance which is a separate wager up to one half of the player’s original wager prior to any additional cards being drawn on the round. A player can take insurance when they have a blackjack, even though the blackjack cannot lose.

Surrender: A Player may elect to discontinue play on their hand for a round by surrendering one half of their wager on the first two cards before any additional cards are drawn on their hand. If the dealer has a blackjack, the entire wager is forfeited.

Rules of Play: Players are not permitted to touch or alter the cards in Spanish 21. Each player shall be responsible for the correct count of his or her hand. No wager shall be made, increased, or withdrawn after the first card of the respective round has been dealt.
