 Aim of the Game : Your goal is to beat the dealer with either one or both of         your hands. To do this you want to get  cards totaling 21 or as close to 21         without going over.
Blackjack Switch Rules
The rules are very similar to any other form of blackjack except you are always dealt two hands instead of one. You can then switch cards between the two hands. This makes for a lot more blackjacks then usual.

Because of this the payout for blackjack is reduced from the standard 3 to 2 to a lower 1 to pay out. The other main differences to normal blackjack rules are the fact that the dealer hits all soft 17's rather than stands. There is also the "Push 22 Rule" which we explain below.

Dealer will “push” on a total of 22 (except 'Blackjacks' will still win). This means that whenever the dealer's total reaches 22 then all bets are 'pushed', regardless of their total except if a player has a ‘Blackjack’, which will still win.

There is also a side bet available called the "Super Match" this bet pays a bonus if your hand consists of two or more cards of the same face value.
 
How the Hands are Played
The game starts as normal. You get dealt two separate hands and then have the option of leaving them as is or switching them. After either taking the switch option you then play the rest of the hand as normal. You can select to hit, stand, stay or double down. The hand is then concluded when the dealer reveals their cards.
