Caribbean 21 is a variation of Blackjack unique to Real Time Gaming casinos. It has some strange features so might take some getting used to!

Caribbean 21 Rules

  • Caribbean 21 is dealt from an infinite deck of cards.
  • Aces can count as only 1.
  • The dealer gets only one card face up and does not take a hole card.
  • The player may double at any time with two or more cards. This includes redoubling and doubling after a split.
  • Player can hit after doubling
  • Splitting is allowed on any two cards. Aces have no special restrictions as in blackjack and have the same splitting rules as other cards.
  • Split only once to two hands.
  • The player may surrender at any time. Surrender is allowed after splitting on a hand by hand basis.
  • An ace and two 10-point cards is called a “Caribbean 21” and is ranked higher than all other 21 point hands, including after splitting.
  • A winning player bet shall pay even money, except for a Caribbean 21 which pays 3-2 on the initial hand only.
  • Player loses all ties.

The house edge, taking all this into account, is around 0.19%.
