The main game in 21 dual blackjack is, as the name implies, blackjack. The goal of the game is getting cards whose total value is higher than the value of the dealer's cards but no higher than 21. The value of each card is equal to the number on it, with the face cards (Jack, queen and king) being worth 10 points each, and the ace being worth either 1 or eleven, whichever is more advantageous for the player.
You start the game by placing an Ante bet on up to three hand positions. You can play up to three simultaneous hands against the dealer, all with the same deck of cards. After placing the Ante, you can press the "Deal" button to have the dealer deal the cards. For each ante you placed, you will be dealt two cards, one face up and one face down. In the middle of the board, two communal cards will be dealt, face up. Finally, the dealer will also receive two cards, face down – of these cards, the dealer is aware of the value of one, and the other is unknown to him as well.
After the cards are dealt, it's time to make your play. You must first choose which of the communal cards to use as your own, and bet on it a sum worth exactly your Ante. If it this point you see there are no good plays, you can fold – this way you only lose your Ante. If you do have a good play, choose the card that would most benefit you. The dealer will do the same. It is important to note that the communal cards are not exclusive – each one of your hands, as well as the dealer, can choose the same communal card to bet on.
Once you've decided what card to bet on, you may to decide to reveal the down facing card and add it to the other cards or not. This is optional, and depends on your chances of victory with the cards you already have. Remember – you must never have cards whose value is higher than 21.
When betting, you may also place a second bet, called the 2 Up bet. The 2 Up bet is a bet on the nature of the first 3 revealed cards – your revealed card and the two communal cards. If any of these three cards are of the same value or have the same face type (I.e. two threes or 2 queens, but not a king and a queen), you win 3 times your 2 Up bet. If they are all of the same value or type, you 20 times your bet.
Tips from the pros
The first and most important tip is to always bet on all hands. Since all hands use the same deck, betting on all of them gives you more knowledge on what cards can and cannot be your faced down cards or the dealer's cards. If you see three aces on your hands and one communal ace, you can know for sure that the dealer isn't holding one, and that no aces are hiding in your down faced cards.
The second tip is to always assume a down facing card is a 10 or a face card. Since all face cards are worth 10 points, the chance of a card being worth 10 points is 4 times greater than the chance of it being another card. If you have nothing else to go on, assume your down faced card is worth 10 points, and play by that.
