In 21 Duel Blackjack you play against the house which is represented by the dealer. Just like the traditional game of Blackjack, the aim of the game is to obtain a hand that has a points score of no more than 21. You are also able to place and ante wager and a side bet then deal for the game to start.
Two cards are dealt to each player, one face up and one face down. The dealer receives two face down cards and two community cards are dealt into the centre of the table. These cards dealt into the centre are face up and may be used to improve both yours and the dealers hands.
When the cards have been dealt, you are allowed to fold or continue. If you fold you lose your ante, if you continue to play you are required to place another bet and choose one of the community cards, this is used with your card that is face up.
You can then continue to bet in the normal Blackjack way, but at the end of the game the dealer chooses a community card according to the rules, and if he has total points of less than thirteen he does not qualify, he is allowed to stand on 16 and the house edge gives him 17. Bets are pushed if you tie and all other bets are paid 1 to 1.
