DraftKings Casino Launches Spanish 21, A New In-House Blackjack Variation

Today, DraftKings Casino New Jersey launched Spanish 21, a blackjack variation created in-house. The game is also coming soon to DraftKings Casino Michigan, as well as its casino in Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, pending regulatory approval.

“Spanish 21 has always been a popular land-based casino game, and we are proud to exclusively bring the Blackjack variant to our casino platform,” said Jason March, Vice President, Gaming at DraftKings. “Developed in-house with our customers in mind, we are excited to roll the game out for our casino players.”

Spanish 21 is currently available via the DraftKings Casino app for iOS and Android.

Spanish 21 Bonus Offer At DraftKings Casino

Spanish 21 is the “Game of the Month” at DraftKings Casino. Opt-in on the promotions page, then bet $10 or more on Spanish 21 each day to receive an additional $10 in free credits. 

That means you can receive between $10 and $70 in free credits for Spanish 21 throughout the week.

The promotion period is this week only, from 8:00 AM on Monday, April 12 through 11:59 PM EST on Sunday, April 18. Additional terms and conditions apply.

DraftKings Spanish 21’s Player-Friendly Rules

Spanish 21 is popular at brick-and-mortar casinos because the rules are usually highly player-friendly. But that means a higher table minimum at land-based casinos. Thankfully, that’s not the case at DraftKings Casino, with a $1 table minimum and a $7,000 maximum.

Generally speaking, Spanish 21 works the same as traditional blackjack. But there are some key differences. Here are the Spanish 21 rules at DraftKings Casino:

  • Dealer stands on soft 17
  • Blackjack pays 3 to 2
  • Player wins on blackjack tie
  • Double down allowed on any number of cards
  • Redouble on already doubled hands
  • Late surrender allowed
  • Surrender after double down on original bet
  • Surrender after splitting aces
  • Minimum bet $1; Maximum Bet $7,000

You can try Spanish 21 in free demo practice mode on the DraftKings Casino app or website.

Spanish 21 Side Bets At DraftKings Casino

Spanish 21 also offers special Player Bonus side bets that can pay out an additional 3 to 1 or 2 to 1 on every hand. Here’s the breakdown:

  • Any 5-card or 7-card 21 pays 3 to 1
  • Any 6-card 21 pays 2 to 1
  • 6-7-8 mixed suit pays 3 to 2
  • 6-7-8 suited pays 2 to 1
  • 6-7-8 spaded pays 3 to 1
  • 7-7-7 mixed suit pays 3 to 2
  • 7-7-7 suited pays 2 to 1
  • 7-7-7 spaded pays 3 to 1

The Super Bonus pays out based on the card the dealer shows. A Super Bonus with a $1 to $4 wager qualifies for a $200 payout, a wager of $5 to $24 qualifies for a $1,000 payout, and any wager $25 or higher qualifies for the $5,000 Super Bonus.

You can also play the “Match the Dealer” side bet. Here’s the breakdown for that one:

  • One-unsuited match pays 3 to 1
  • One-suited match pays 12 to 1
  • Two-unsuited match pays 6 to 1
  • One-suited match and one-unsuited match pays 15 to 1
  • Two-suited match pays 24 to 1
