As the name implies when you play this game of online blackjack, in Classic Multi Hand Blackjack you can play several independent hands. Each hand is competing against the dealer so it is possible to win with up to five hands. Since you are allowed to split once per hand, in theory you could even play ten hands against the dealer's one.
The Benefit of Playing Five Hands
While you don't have to play five hands, one benefit that doing so gives you is that you can play different strategies with the different hands. Sometimes one strategy will win while others times a different strategy will be the one to do the trick. You could decide to be super aggressive with the hand on the left and super conservative with the one on the right. It's up to you. On the other hand, in this game of online blackjack, the dealer must always stand at all seventeens.
