Double Exposure Blackjack Review

The Gold Series Double Exposure Blackjack game is just another in an interesting series of blackjack variations designed by Microgaming, which has a well-established reputation as the worldwide leader in online gaming software. With first-rate graphics, ambient and game sounds, along with player options that include the ability to control the speed of the game, this is a game that is intriguing and well worth investigating.

As might be expected, because of the convenience of being able to play in the comfort of one's home, and the options that are available, for most players this is actually an experience that is better than that which is found in the brick and mortar casino. Clearly there are advantages to it. For example, players can exercise an option called "Autoplay," which automates many of the aspects of play, essentially minimizing the actual interaction with the software itself.. You want to go slow? Fast? Fastest? You can.

Any questions you need to ask can generally be answered in the "Help" section, another feature of Microgaming offerings that make them stand out from the rest. Read Full Review

Full Review - Double Exposure Blackjack (9.00)

The game is played with eight decks of 52 playing cards apiece. After each round of play the cards are shuffled; something known as the "random" shuffle.

The object of the game is nothing unusual - it is to defeat the dealer by achieving a total of 21 or under that is higher than the dealer's total, or by staying under a total of 21 while the dealer "busts" (exceeds 21).

The biggest fundamental difference between Double Exposure blackjack and other forms of blackjack is that both of the dealer's cards are dealt face-up, meaning that the hand you must play against has already been revealed. Of course, when that kind of rule is in place, there are concessions the player must make to the house. For example, two-card blackjacks, or "naturals" pay even money instead of 3 to 2, and the dealer must hit soft 17, which is a departure from that which is found in most versions of blackjack.

There is no checking of hole cards and therefore no insurance, because one knows immediately whether the dealer has a blackjack. That is actually good news for the player, since insurance is a bad percentage play to begin with. As for more good news, anytime the player and the dealer simultaneously have a blackjack, the player wins. Back to the bad news - the dealer will win all other ties.

Splitting is permitted, and that option includes splitting ten-value cards that might be of different rank, such as a Jack and a Queen. You can split up to three times, making a total of four hands that can be played after exercising the option of splitting. The exception to this is split Aces, to which only one card can be drawn. Split aces which are hit with a ten are not considered to be blackjacks but merely "21."
