Blackjack Surrender is a variation of classic Blackjack with a nifty opportunity to minimize losses early in the game, protecting yourself from further unfavorable odds. The main peculiarity of the game is ability to abandon your hand against certain dealer combinations. The benefit lies in receiving half of your initial bet back instead of losing it. If you use the surrender option in a smart way, you can cut possible losses considerably, although being too cautious is not always the wisest decision.
In Blackjack Surrender, player’s goal is to have a hand with points value closer to 21 points than the Dealer’s without exceeding 21 or by the Dealer’s hand going over 21 (“bust”).
