One of the most exciting Blackjack games, Double Deck Blackjack games are available at PokerStars Casino in both Single Player and Multi-Player modes.
Unlike most other Blackjack games, only two 52-card decks are shuffled together and dealt at the start of each hand.
Dealers do not receive a hole card. They will stand on a soft 17 (a hand featuring an ace that totals either seven or 17). Should you hit Blackjack you will be paid at 3:2 odds.
More betting options become available as the hand progresses. For instance, players can double down on any two-card hand. This means you can double your initial bet, so long as you are committed to ‘standing’ after receiving one additional card from the dealer.
Players can also split two cards if they are paired or of equal value. So if you are dealt eight-eight, two-two, king-jack, queen-ten, or other similar combinations, you can create two hands for an additional wager of the same amount. Here are some additional rules on splitting:
Our Single Player tables allow you to play up to five betting positions (or ‘boxes’) per game round. Just click on one or more boxes to place a wager.
On our Single Player tables the action proceeds at your pace, without a timer to hurry you along. Bet sizes can be selected easily by using the chip icons, the slider or by typing an amount you wish to wager. Click on Clear to start again, or Deal to commit the bet and start the hand. After the hand is complete, use the Re-Bet button to repeat the same wager on the next hand.
Players are not allowed to ‘surrender’ in Double Deck. But if you think the dealer is about to hit Blackjack, you can buy ‘insurance’. This means should the dealer hit Blackjack, you’ll be paid 2:1 on your bet.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) for Double Deck Blackjack is 99.77%.
Please note that malfunction voids all pay-outs.
