Before the round begins a participant makes Ante bet, and after that dealer and player receive five cards each. One card is open.
A player can refuse playing the round. In this case cards are folded and online casino gets player's bet. If cards are quite strong, player can place a bet and compare his/her combination with dealer's combination. Card switching is also available.
For three new cards players pay three Ante bets, if they change four cards then Ante size doubles. While switching all cards, bet raise is automatically performed and Ante taken.
Dealer participates in the game only under condition that he/she has king and ace or another stronger combination. Otherwise, dealer folds and a player receives 1:1 payout. If dealer and player hold similar combinations, then Ante is returned.
If you have already played one of blackjack variations at online casinos, then playing new Switch type of the game you'll have opportunity to switch cards between two hands.
For example, if you play two hands and have 6, 10 in one and 5, J in the other, you could get two strong pairs 6, 5 and 10, J. Players can switch only second dealt cards.
