How to Play Basic Blackjack : Doubling Down in Blackjack


Hi! This is Daniel on behalf of Expert Village
in this clip we’re going to be talking about the strategy known as doubling down in 21
or again more commonly known as blackjack in North America. Doubling down is simply
doubling the amount of the bet that you had on the original hand, if you bet let’s say
you bet two chips on a hand you receive the two cards and you realize your odds are very
high at winning, you simply double down now when you double down that’s going to allow
you to have one more card, now you don’t know what that card is you’re betting that
card is going to be closer to 21 or blackjack than the dealer. You’re doubling the amount
of money on the table and you’re also doubling your risk at losing, now you can only receive
a double down after you have been dealt your two cards and before you have hit because
when you double down you only get one more card.
