Blackjack Switch Blackjack is a variation offered at Playtech, the Grand Virtual Gaming World, and (some) DGS-casinos. I find the game to be more interesting and enjoyable than traditional blackjack. If available, I usually choose, Blackjack Switch about other games to play on bonuses. Blackjack Switch is the lowest house edge game ever this software. However, strategy is more complex than traditional blackjack by the switching decisions.

Rules and Play

Once in each hand, he treats the first two cards, the player has the option to swap the top card between the two hands. In the image at the top of the page, the player could either keep the Blackjack and 11 or replace the top card between your hands and make a soft 18 and 14 In exchange for this service, there are additional rules that favor the dealer.:

Dealer-A 22 is not treated as a failure. Instead, he counts as a push against all hands except a Blackjack Player

Blackjack pays 1:01

-The dealer hits on soft 17

House Edge

With optimal strategy, the house edge is only 0.16% with 6 decks (Playtech, World Gaming, DGS) and 0.18% with 8 decks (Grand Virtual).

For protection to protect against card counters, most Vegas casinos have house advantage by using switches a A/10 count as 21 increases, rather than blackjack. This change increases house edge to 0.58%. I’m not aware that this version used at online casinos.

Variance and Bet Size

The standard deviation of Blackjack Switch is complex. If you (no switch) Switch rules including 1:01 payouts for blackjack play a single hand of blackjack, the standard deviation is 1:06 per hand. Influence switch decisions, however this standard deviation in two ways:

1 hands, the optimal strategy of double or split often have a high EV, switch decisions tend to prefer double and splits over other options. With an inaccurate infinite deck simulation, I estimate that switch decisions increase the rate of inserts doubled to almost 40%, the increase in the standard deviation per hand on 1.10 and the average bet size of 1.12.

2 The correlation between several players hands in blackjack is ~ 0.365. Blackjack Switch has a lower correlation between the hands as a standard Blackjack Switch, because decisions often improve on the one hand and degrade others. I’m not sure that the degree of the effect. I suppose the switching decisions decrease correlation easy, 365 – 30

With the above assumptions, I guess, set a standard deviation of 1.25 per round and a standard deviation of 0.83 per unit. The latter value of 0.83 corresponds to the expected loss over a wagering requirement. As a reference standard two-hand blackjack has bet a standard deviation per round of ~ 1.33 and a standard deviation per unit of ~ 0.89.

The following table shows the possibility of termination of the deposit above balance with unlimited bankroll, after completing a wagering requirement with 4 sizes bet (bet size per hand). See the Returns & Variance Calculator for accurate estimates. Note that the standard deviation and average bet size expressed values of Calc per hand. They correspond to 1.10 and 1.12 in the above discussion.
