Match Play 21 by Realtime Gaming is a blackjack game that doesn’t have the tens. With this game, players get special payouts. The 3 suited 7’s have the largest payout when the up card for the dealer is also 7. Other special payouts include using five cards to make 21, six cards to make 21, seven or more cards to make 21, 6-7-8 of any suit, and three 7s, 3 sevens of spades, 3 sevens of a similar suit, and 6-7-8 of spades. A player’s hand can be split or fold at any time. The blackjack of the player always wins.

Specific Rules and Table Limit

The Match Play 21 game doesn’t use the standard 52 cards French deck. Instead, this game uses the Spanish deck. In this deck, all 10-spot cards are absent. That means a player has 48 cards on the deck. This makes drawing the natural blackjack hand difficult. However, all picture cards like the Queens, Jacks, and Kings are present, and their value is 10 as usual.

The other rules of this game are as follow:

  • The dealer is required to hit soft 17
  • Player’s 21 always wins except when playing against the dealer’s natural
  • A double down on 2 cards is allowed
  • The dealer blackjack is beaten by the player’ blackjack
  • Only three hands can be split up
  • No re-split or hitting split Aces
  • Surrender is allowed

The surrender rule means that a player can cut losses even after doubling. This is also called double down rescue.

How to Play Match Play 21

Select the Match Play 21 casino game at Las Atlantis and let it load onto your screen. After that, start the game by setting your bet. Once you have made your wagers, you will be dealt your cards. The action starts after the cards have been dealt. The rules stated above will apply when it comes to the options that you have for your hand.

Your objective should always be to beat the hand of the dealer in points. If the dealer’s hand has 16, for instance, try to have at least 17 points. If the dealer’s hand has 19 points, you can only win if you get 20 or more. And, you should not go over 21 points. Crossing 21 points means you have automatically lost the game. If the dealer gets a bigger hand, you also lose.
