Casino gaming is really interesting, whether it is played online or at a real casino. The main point of the game is to have a winning hand and also get the highest card hand. You need to learn some strategies to double down the most whenever you have the opportunity.

Basic Double Down Rules:

1) You are dealt two cards face down, if you have the least valued of these two cards, you may double down ($5 Casino wager). You may double down anytime, even if you have no opportunity to do so during the current round of play.

2) The dealer is given one card face up, if he or she has the lowest valued card then he or she cannot double down.

3) If the dealer or someone playing chooses to double down while having the lowest valued of the two cards then the following rules apply:

1) The dealer must draw cards for the second hand, if he or she starts with a Q,J,Q or K, you may still win even though the dealer has more Q,J,Q cards;

2) The dealer must draw cards for the second hand, if he or she has a 10 face up, you may still win even though the dealer has more 10 cards;

3) The dealer must draw cards for the second hand, if he or she has a K,Q,J,10 card draw, you may still win even though the dealer has more K,Q,J,10 cards.

4) The dealer must draw cards for the second hand, if he or she has a hand of value 3, 4, 5, or 6. You may still win even though the dealer has more than one of these cards.

5) When the dealer has a hand of 8 or 9 in the first hand, and you have a 7 or 8, you will have to stand. The dealer must draw cards for the second hand, if he or she has a hand of value 4, 5, or 6. You may lose if the dealer has a better hand.

6) When the dealer has a hand of 7 or less, and your hand value is more than zero, you will have to double down. You can double down as much as you like. The dealer must draw cards for the second hand, if he or she has a hand of 8, 9, 10 or 11. You will have to stand if the dealer has a hand with a value 8.

7) If you are dealt two cards of the same value, you may be able to “split” them. When you split a pair, you can separate them. You must make a separate bet for each hand. If you split 2, you separate the cards into two different hands, and each hand will have its own bet.

8) You can also elect to surrender. If the dealer shows a card of 7 or higher, you may surrender your hand, and half the bet. You can surrender when:

1) The dealer has a hand value of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6, and you have a hand value of 8; or

2) The dealer has a hand value of 7, 8, 9 or 10 any time; or

3) The dealer has a hand value of Ace or 10 any time.

The surrender option is especially useful early in the game when the betting is congested, making it easier to secure an advantage.

Early in the game, look for opportunities to use the surrender rule. It might occur that you are in a game with several other players and you have a strong hand in the remipoker. Often, players jumps to double down when surrendering. Some players rough jump, (meaning, don’t surrender).
