blackjack In the previous article I described several variations of Blackjack – Classic Blackjack, European and Spanish 21. In this article I’m going to tell you about some more types.

Vegas Strip

This game gets its name from its origin and the house edge is on average around 0.34% it is preferable to play Vegas Strip blackjack rather than its counterpart Vegas Downtown blackjack due to the fact that it carries a lower house edge in comparison to Downtown having a 0.38% advantage. The rules in Vegas Strip Blackjack are as follows:

· A standard 52 card deck is used

· The dealer is likely to stand on soft 17

· Doubling is possible on any of first 2 cards

· A player is able to split after doubling

· Re-splitting into three hands is allowed

Atlantic City

The game takes its name after the city. Atlantic City differs from the Vegas Strip, but not too much. The main difference is the house edge, which is 0.35%. The main principles of Atlantic City are:

· Played with 8 decks of cards

· There’s only 1 bet position

· The dealer will stand on soft 17

· You are allowed on the first two cards

· Re-splitting into three hands is possible
