Define the way you play your game
There are times when you know that you haven't been dealt the winning hand, moments when you just want to cut your losses and try again. Now you have the chance to take the minimum financial hit and start afresh when you choose to play Blackjack Surrender with us at Genting Casino.
There's no shame in surrendering when you know that defeat is on the cards and it can make sound financial sense, saving you cash to try your hand again with Blackjack Surrender Online at Genting Casino. Forget about losing; playing Blackjack Surrender can open up a world of options and opportunities.
A non-traditional approach
Playing Blackjack Surrender is not that different from playing traditional blackjack; it still offers the same excitement and fun factor. The major change, however, is that you can cut your losses and surrender your hand when the cards really don't stack up, sacrificing just half the bet you made, rather than the whole lot.
At Genting Casino, we know that surrender is not always the most attractive option, but when it comes to a dead cert loss, losing only half of your stake has got to be a better bet, and one that could pave the way for more future fun as you try again to play Blackjack Surrender online.
Choose your strategy
Playing Blackjack Surrender is simple; place your bets for however many hands you want to play - you don't have to bet the same amount for each - and then the opportunities will quite literally be at your fingertips. The dealer will let you know the total of each hand and then you'll get the choice of whether to double, stand, hit or surrender. Choose to surrender and you'll lose half of your original bet no matter what the dealer's hand is, but that's got to be better than forging ahead with a hand that you know has no chance of netting you a win.
So, if you've ever played Blackjack and found yourself wishing that you could just throw down your hand and start again, then give Blackjack Surrender a try. What have you got to lose when even a bad hand can pave the way for future fun and big winning potential?

Blackjack Surrender Rules
The object of Blackjack Surrender is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer's cards, without exceeding 21. In Blackjack, aces count as either 1 or 11, face cards as 10, and number cards at their face value.
If you receive an ace and a ten-value card as your first two cards, you have Blackjack and win 1.5 times your bet (if your bet was 10, you receive 25). If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer's, you win your bet amount (if your bet was 10, you receive 20). If the total of your cards is more than 21, you "bust" and automatically lose your bet. If you and the dealer have the same card total (17 to 21) neither of you win and your bet is returned to you in a "push". Blackjack beats a score of 21.
To play Blackjack Surrender
- Click on a chip to select it. Click on the available hand positions (the circles arranged in a semicircle on the table). Every click increases your bet by the value of the selected chip. Bets can be placed on any of the hands to play on only one or up to five hands simultaneously. To decrease your bet, right-click on the bet to decrease it by the value of the selected chip.
- If you are playing the game in single hand mode, click on the chips to increase your bet. Every click on a chip increases your bet by the chip value, and every right-click decreases the bet.
- You can click Clear Bets to remove all bets from the table.
- The minimum and maximum bet limits on each hand are dependent on your VIP level and are shown on the table. The limits apply to the initial bet only. Actions (such as Split, etc.) that require an additional bet can still be used even if you placed a bet equal to the maximum bet.
- Click the Deal button to deal the cards. Two cards are dealt to the player and the dealer hands. The cards are dealt one by one to each hand in turns, with the first card going to the player hand. The last card goes to the dealer hand and is dealt face down.
- If you are playing more than one hand, actions are taken for each hand separately, starting from the right-most hand.
- If the dealer's face up card is an Ace, you are offered insurance. Click the Insurance button to insure against the dealer having Blackjack.
- Use the Hit, Stand, Double and Split buttons as required.
- Please note that Insurance, Double and Split require an additional bet. If your balance does not have enough money to cover these expenses, you will need to deposit more money to use these options.
- The dealer reveals the face down card and draws additional cards according to the rules.
- Your hand is compared to the dealer's hand.
- If you want to play another round, click New Game. Then place bets as described above or click Rebet to place the same bet as in the previous round and then click Deal to deal the cards.
Our Blackjack follows the standard "Las Vegas Strip" rules, with the following exceptions:
- After each round, used cards are returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled.
- The player may not split a split hand.
- Only one card is drawn to split aces.
- The player may double after splitting.
- The dealer will not check for Blackjack in any case.
- The dealer draws an additional card when the total of the dealer's cards is 16 or less and stands when the total is 17 or greater (including soft 17s). The dealer does not draw when the player is "bust".
- If the player doubles and the dealer's first card is of value 11 (ACE), and the dealer gets Blackjack, the player loses both his bets. If the dealer's first card is of value 10, and the dealer gets Blackjack, the player gets the Double bet back.
If your first two cards have the same value, you may split them into two separate hands by placing a second bet equal to the original bet. You will then draw additional cards to each hand. You may draw as many cards as you like on each split hand, but if you split two aces, you receive only one additional card for each ace. If you receive an ace and a ten-value card in a split hand, it is considered 21 and not Blackjack.Double
If, after you are dealt your first two cards, you think that the third card will allow you to beat the dealer's hand, you can double your bet. The bet amount becomes twice the original (with the difference taken out of your balance), and you are dealt one more card.Insurance
If the dealer shows an Ace in his initial hand, you are given a chance to insure your bet against him having a Blackjack. If you get Insurance, an amount equal to half your original bet is placed separately on the table. If the dealer does have Blackjack, you are paid 2 to 1 on your insurance. This way you do not lose your original bet (because you get the 2x half your original bet, plus the insurance amount back). If the dealer does not have Blackjack, you lose the insurance amount.10 Card Charlie
It is theoretically possible for the player to draw 10 cards without going bust. In this case the player's hand automatically wins, except when the dealer has Blackjack.
10 Card Charlie is also applicable on a split hand.
