Microgaming casino Spanish Blackjack
Spanish Blackjack is a variant of blackjack that is offered at all Microgaming online casinos. The most striking feature of this online blackjack game is that the deck has only 48 cards instead of the regular 52 cards. All the tens are removed from the deck.

The exact rules under which Spanish Blackjack is played at Microgaming online casinos are explained below. The game is played with eight Spanish decks. The dealer will check for blackjack when he is dealt face up card with a value of 10 or an ace. If the dealer has a blackjack then the player loses his wager. The dealer hits on a hand value of soft 17. The rules for splitting are as follows. Cards having the same value can also be split
such as a queen and a jack. Blackjack obtained after splitting aces and tens does not count as blackjack but as a hand value of 21. A player can split a maximum of three times in a game. Players can double down after a split. The usual insurance and late surrender bets apply. However
because the tens have been removed from the decks the insurance bet is a sucker bet in Spanish Blackjack and it should never be placed. Overall Spanish Blackjack offers a house edge of around 0.5% which is par for blackjack games. The minimum bet is 1 credit and the maximum bet is 500 credits. A feature in Spanish Blackjack
which is not found in other variants of blackjack
