Double exposure is a blackjack variation in which both dealer cards are exposed. Naturally there are other rule changes that favor the dealer to compensate. Although the house edge is greater then conventional blackjack it still ranks as one of the best bets in the casino if played properly. If you can find the game this section will tell you how to play it.

Rules
The usual rules are the same as blackjack except:

Both dealer cards are exposed
Dealer wins on all ties, except on a natural blackjack
Player blackjack pays even money
Player may split only once

Rules that can vary include but are not limited to:

Dealer hits or stands on soft 17
Tied blackjacks either push or go to the player
Player may or may not double after a split
Player may double on any first to cards or not
Player may split more than once
Player may or may not split unlike 10 value cards (for example queen and king)
