- You can only double on “hard” 9, 10 and 11 points.
- After split there is no double available.
- You can split cards of the same denomination (different cards with a value of 10 points cannot be Split).
- Split is allowed once.
- With an open Ace at the dealer you can insure against blackjack.
- Surrender is not provided by the rules of the High Stakes Blackjack game.
