"Garden Variety"

This particular variation pretty much varies according to the table or perhaps the particular casino where you are playing. All the variations are dependent on the following instances.

  1. Decks range between 1 -8.
  2. Certain casinos require their dealer to "stand on" soft 17, which means is has an ace which is counted as 11. Conversely, some require their dealers to hit on soft 17; this practice is used more often.
  3. Card shuffling might be automatically or continuously done.

Spanish 21

This variation involves removing all 10s from the game, while retaining all Jack, Queen and King. This leaves the deck with 6s and 8s and with easier rule for the players; such as, double down, surrendering or hitting any time. This also includes extra payouts in the form of 21-pt combinations. The combination of "7-7-7" provides high returns to the player, which can be anywhere between $1000 and $5000.

Super Fun 21

This variation's primary difference lies in the single deck as well as its payout. Other blackjack games involve playing with a payout rate of 1:1 whereas Double Diamond pays you at the rate of 2:1. It has comparatively lenient rules as in the case of Spanish 21. Such rules did make blackjack more appealing to the players. Such games have high demand in all casinos, so it may take some time for you to get a seat.

6:5 Blackjack

This variation also involves playing with single deck; however the payout rate is just 1.2:1 as opposed to 1.5:1 in a game of blackjack.
