Ever wish you could see the Dealer's cards before you hit? Of course!
Normally, sneaking a peek at the Dealer's down card would be cheating!
But when you play Cheat at Blackjack™, we let you see the Dealer's cards!
In fact, you can see all cards, including any hits, and view the final Dealer hand before you decide to hit!
Yeah, it feels like cheating, but it's totally OK!
never hit those 15's & 16's again before knowing if the dealer has a made hand
let the dealer risk busting, before you
feel confident at the table without memorizing basic strategy
know exactly what you need to beat, before taking a hit
new surrender options that return 100% of original bet
doubling and splitting allowed, just like traditional rules
play at the same table with traditional "play fair" BJ players, against the same dealer
stick to one ruleset, or alternate between hands
Whoa! I can see Dealer's entire hand? What's the deal?
you agree to just 3 simple rule changes to your Cheat hands:
• Aces always = 11
• Hit All Ties
• Must Exceed 13 After Dealer Bust
• I can see the Dealer's whole hand? For real?
Yes, before you make any hit or stand decision, the Dealer will play out its entire hand, in the open, like a normal Blackjack game.
• What if the dealer busts before I hit, do I win?
Yes, if your hand exceeds 13 it's an automatic winner. Otherwise you have two options: you can hit until your hand safely exceeds 13 or busts, or you can simply call the hand a push and get your full bet back.
• If I get a blackjack?
Blackjacks are treated just like normal blackjack rules and pay 3-to-2, or whatever payout is printed on the table felt.
• Can I double down?
You can. Like normal Blackjack, doubling must be done before the Dealer's down card is revealed. But since doubling down doesn't allow for any additional hits (as long as the 3rd card doesn't cause a bust) rules #2 and #3 above won't apply to your hand.
• What about splitting pairs?
Yes, you can also split pairs before the Dealer's cards are revealed. But you play both split hands after the Dealer's final hand is revealed! The only exception is Aces. If your first two cards are both Aces, the hand is considered a push and you get your full bet back.
