Blackjack Surrender

The powerful surrender option adds a new tactic to your play in this variant of a casino classic.

Play up to five hands against the dealer simultaneously, with different bets on every hand. Surrender any initial draw of two cards for a payout before the dealer's second card is revealed!

You can play on any of your favourite platforms.


The object of Blackjack Surrender is to get a hand that totals 21 or is closer to 21 than the dealer’s hand without exceeding 21.

In Blackjack Surrender, Aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards count as 10, and number cards count at their face values.

Blackjack Surrender follows the standard Las Vegas Strip rules, with the following exceptions:

  • After each round, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.
  • The player may not split a split hand.
  • Only one card is drawn to split Aces.
  • The player may double after splitting.
  • If the dealer’s initial hand has an Ace or a ten-value card as the face-up card, the dealer will check for Blackjack. If the face-up card is an Ace, the dealer offers Insurance before checking for Blackjack.
  • The dealer draws an additional card when the total of the dealer's cards is 16 or lower and stands when the total is 17 or greater (including soft 17s). The dealer does not draw when the player is 'bust'.

Game Features


If the first two cards in a hand have the same value, the player may split them into two separate hands by placing a second bet equal to the original bet (creating one bet on each split hand).


The player may wish to double their bet if, after the player is dealt their first two cards, the player thinks that the third card will allow them to beat the dealer's hand.

By choosing to double, the bet amount becomes twice the original (with the difference taken out of the player’s balance) and the player is dealt one more card. The player can also double down after splitting a pair.


If the dealer shows an Ace in their initial hand, the player is given the option to insure their bet against the dealer having Blackjack.

If the player takes Insurance, an amount equal to half of the player’s original bet is placed separately on the table. If the dealer has Blackjack, the player is paid 2 to 1 on their insurance.

10-Card Charlie

It is theoretically possible for the player to draw 10 cards without going bust.

In this case the player’s hand automatically wins, except when the dealer has Blackjack.
