OBJECT > There are more ways to win at Pure Spanish 21.5! With PURE SPANISH 21.5, your 21.5 (also known as “BLACKJACK”) always BEATS Dealer’s 21.5, and your TOTAL of 21 always BEATS the Dealer’s Total of 21! In addition, like traditional Blackjack, when you have a hand that has a total higher than the dealer’s without going over 21.5, you win. Also, like traditional Blackjack, when the dealer busts, any player remaining in the hand that has not busted wins.
GAMEPLAY > Pure Spanish 21.5 plays much like traditional Blackjack. You receive two faced up cards. The dealer’s hand has one card faced up and the other card remains faced down. The object of Pure Spanish 21.5 is to achieve a total that is greater than the dealer’s without going over 21.5. If there are other players at the table, you are still only trying to beat the dealer’s hand.
Each numbered card 9 and under, has a value equal to the number on the card. Jacks, Queens, and Kings are considered bonus cards and have a value of 10. The last card in the deck is the Ace. This card has a unique value because It can count either as 1 or 11, depending on what helps your hand the most. If you get dealt a bonus card and an Ace, this adds up to 21.5 also known as “blackjack”.
