Free Spanish 21 Blackjack
Play Spanish Black Jack in Flash
Spanish 21 is a fun and different variation of
blackjack that's owned by a company called Masque Publishing.
Some people use the same game rules and market the game under an
alternate name of "Spanish Blackjack", since Masque Publishing
owns the trademark to the name "Spanish 21". The main difference
between Spanish 21 and a regular blackjack game is that all of
the tens (not the face cards though) are removed from the deck
Spanish 21 is usually dealt from a shoe with either six or eight decks of cards, although the online version below is dealt from an eight deck shoe that is shuffled after every single hand. Obviously removing any tens from the deck gives the house an additional advantage, percentage-wise, but all of the other rules variations for Spanish blackjack favor the player, so it evens out to still be a pretty good game with a small house edge. The house edge varies from between 0.38% to 0.76% in most casinos.
The version of Spanish 21 you see on this page is a free flash game provided courtesy of Spin Palace casino and Microgaming. The game requires no download and no deposit, and it's completely free to anyone who wants to play. This version has the most favorable rules you'll find in a Spanish blackjack game and offers a low house edge of only 0.38%.
Some of the rules variations that make up for the loss of the tens in the deck include the following: The player wins on ANY total of 21, even if the dealer also has a 21. Resplitting multiple times is allowed, and you can draw more than one card after splitting aces. A five card total of 21 pays 3 to 2, just like a blackjack, and a six card total of 21 pays 2 to 1. A seven card total of 21 pays 3 to 1. But none of those bonus payouts apply if the player hit a 21 after doubling down.
There are other hands in Spanish 21 that offer bonus payouts too. A 678 or 777 pays 3 to 2, and if they're all suited, those hands pay 2 to 1. And if they're all spades, these hands pay 3 to 1. Also, if you've got a suited 777, and the dealer has a 7 up, then there is a $1000 or $5000 bonus payout depending on how much you're betting on each hand. (The $1000 payout is for bets of under $25, and the $5000 payout is for bets of $25+.)
Spanish blackjack is one of the most popular and entertaining casino games available from Microgaming casinos, and the flash version on this page is identical to the no download real money game that they offer. The downloadable casino game version of Spanish Blackjack is only slightly different, with the main difference being a bit more detail on the graphics and sound, and you can play full screen. If it's legal in your jurisdiction, you might give the game a try for real money.
