No Moron! You Can't Win Against the Casino Playing Blackjack Switch...Unless You Cheat!

Perhaps you've heard of the new casino game "Blackjack Switch," which is a variant of blackjack in which a player is dealt two hands and is allowed to switch the top two cards between hands. For example, if the player is dealt A-5 and 10-6, then the player may swap the top two cards of each hand to make hands of A-10 blackjack and 5-6, a good double-down hand. But the Catch 00 is that blackjacks are paid 1:1 instead of the standard 3:2, and a dealer 22 pushes all player hands except a blackjack.

Believe it or not, I have gotten a dozen e-mails asking me if this was a game where the casinos were letting the players cheat the house! LOL. Can you believe that?!

Well, for those of you who want to cheat at Blackkack Switch, you better do some switching with something besides the cards--try the chips!
