Double Down In Black Jack


With certain totals in a Black Jack game, you are allowed to double down your bet.

This is how you can double your bet in a Black Jack game:

If your first two cards in a Black jack game total a ten or an eleven, you are allowed to double your original bet. It is called Double Down. You receive only one additional card.


Example:

Double Down, Black Jack

You first two cards total a ten or an eleven and your original bet is $4.You can bet an additional $4 to that particular bet.




Double Down, Black Jack

You put the additional $4 next to (not on top of) the original bet. Now you have a total of $8 in play.

Some Casinos also let you double your bet on eights and nines. Others let you double your bet on any first two cards. Others let you double your bet after a split, called "Double After Split." In general, casinos have different rules. You have to ask, especially in Vegas.


Note:

In Las Vegas, you are allowed to double your bet on any first two cards. Generally, you may double after a split. Also, you can bet an additional amount less than the original bet, at least the minimum bet for the table.

In Atlantic City, you are allowed to double your bet on any first two cards. You may double your bet after a split too. Here too, you can bet an additional amount less than the original bet, at least the minimum bet for the table.
