Spanish Multi-Hand Blackjack
Multi-Hand Spanish Blackjack is a unique twist to the game of blackjack from Microgaming. Think of it as a traditional Blackjack with a twist of Poker and a 3-reel slot chaser. (Don’t worry, you’ll see what I mean in a minute).
The game is played with eight 52-card decks, with all natural 10s removed. While this may seem like it would reduce your chances of winning, the game actually improves your chances of getting a larger than average payout if your play your cards right.
You don’t need no stinkin’ 10s. What you do need are 7s. And some luck. Here is a breakdown of the Multi-Hand Spanish 21 hand descriptions and payouts:
- Ties of “21” do not push. They always go to the player
- Payout is 3 to 2 if “21” is achieved with 5 cards.
- Payout is 2 to 1 if “21” is achieved with 6 cards.
- Payout is 3 to 1 if “21” is achieved with 7 or more cards cards.
- Payout is 3 to 2, if your “21” is a 6-7-8 or a 7-7-7 combo in a varied suit
- You can double your payout if you can do the above in the same suite; triple it if you can land it in all Spades.
And don’t forget about Microgaming’s “Super Bonus”. Win an additional $1000 (applies to initial bets was $24 or less) or $5000 (applies if the initial bets was $25 or more) if your hand scores “21” with a same-suited 7-7-7 combo and the dealer has a seven in her hand (yes, tonight the role of the Dealer will be played by a woman).
As far as the other rules go, doubling is allowed on any two initial cards and surrender is available when the first two cards offer little hope for a win. Surrender is also available on a hand that’s been doubled-just do it before you bust.
This blackjack-poker-slot game has everything you need: a hand total of 21 points, the ability to win big with a straight or a super pair, and the goal to get identical 7s on a “payline”.
Spanish 21 comes in a “Lite” version as well (single-hand) at the following recommended casinos.
