Double Attack Blackjack is a blackjack variant available at some online casinos in which players can double the initial wager after seeing the first card in play. Triple Attack Blackjack is a land casino blackjack variant in which players can triple the initial wager in stages.
Triple Attack Blackjack is played with eight Spanish decks. A Spanish deck is a deck with 48 cards, the tens having being removed. The game begins with the player making the "first attack" wager. Each player is then dealt his first card. The players have the option to make a "second attack" wager, which has to be equal to the "first attack" wager. The dealer then deals his first card face up. The players then have the option to make a "third attack" wager, which again has to be equal to the "first attack" wager. Players can make the "third attack" wager even if they have not made the "second attack" wager.
Thereafter the blackjack game proceeds in more or less the familiar manner. The players are dealt their second cards and the dealer's second card is dealt face down.
Apart from the insurance bet discussed earlier, Triple Attack Blackjack offers two other side bets. One of them is called Suited Royals. This bet pays if the first two cards dealt to the player are of the same suit. In the case of a suited King and Queen the payout is 40 to 1. In the case of suited face cards the payout is 10 to 1 and in the case of any other two suited cards the payout is 2 to 1. The house edge for the Suited Royals side bet is just over 3%. The other side bet is called Triple Match. This bet is decided based on the player's first two cards and dealer's face up card. A suited three of a kind pays 150 to 1. A normal three of a kind pays 20 to 1. A suited pair pays 4 to 1 and any pair pays 2 to 1. The house edge for this bet is just over 5.5%.
Triple Attack Blackjack is a new variant created by Galaxy Gaming. It won the best new table game award at the 2010 Raving Consulting Conference.
