Double deck blackjack is a casino game played in casinos with two decks or more. A double deck is referred to as “the best of two” because with two decks a player has the option to split their bankroll between the two decks and still be in the blackjack table and to fold if they are out of money. In the UK, double deck blackjack is also sometimes referred to as “doubling up”.

The most basic rule variation concerning double deck blackjack games occurs when the casino has more decks than players. When this rule is in effect, the dealer will deal out three decks to each of players and they will form the required playing field with the dealer having the soft side and the hard side. This can be considered the standard blackjack games arrangement and many refer to it as “doubling up”. Deck count is obviously one of the most significant factors that bear thought when you select a blackjack game, however deck count does not affect the advantage the casino has against individual players, the reason being that it only affects the edge the casino has against players when they have more cards on the table.

The disadvantage of this setup is that a player who has more cards than their opponents can still win, provided that they discard at least one card to bring their hand down to one card. One thing that should be remembered when playing a double deck blackjack game is that it is important to remember that “trashing” your cards before you use them is very important. The reason for this is that you do not want your opponent to have the opportunity to use the information that you have on them when it is time to lay out their hand. Another thing that should be remembered is that you should discard any cards that are already on the table and any cards in the discard pile before you take your turn.
