Blackjack Switch is a popular variation of the In it, the players are dealt two cards each in two hands and allowed to interchange the top cards of both hands, i.e. the second dealt cards. They are not obligated to do so, but can do it if they feel that they would be able to make up better hands by switching. In Blackjack Switch, the payout for a blackjack is 1:1. Still, experts advice that a player should switch hands if he can make a blackjack, even if he is left with a weak second hand. The other option for the player may be to have two strong hands, but even then making a blackjack should be preferred. The reason is that regardless of what the dealer has, the blackjack gets paid out immediately and the player can at least come out even. Another thing to be considered is that in Blackjack Switch, due to the player having better odds of making a blackjack, a special rule gives a benefit to the dealer that he will not go bust if he reaches 22. A dealer’s 22 means a draw, or push with every player except the one with a blackjack. Managing the bankroll acquires even more significance in Blackjack Switch as the player bets on two hands at a time. He has to be very aware of his win or loss limits because they may be reached twice quicker. All things said, remember that house edge is not affected greatly whether you switch or not and you should not stress too much about it.
