Why can't we split more than one time per game?

Featured Comment

I was wondering why we cant split a hand more than one time during one round?
                                                                                                                                                                                              
I dont know the maths on this, but does it end up giving the player more chance to win or something?
does it actually work against the house % wise in terms of winning by not allowing the user to split a hand more than once per game?
                                                                                                                                                                                              
or has this all just happened to end up the was it is by chance, meaning it was not intentional nor thought out really by the devs while making it..
as in they just followed the instructions given, which is okay of course.... but if  that is the case, then id like admins to look into this, and the maths or whatnot...

id like to see the function added to be able to split more than once per game if it hasn't been left out deliberately.

Your guess is exactly right, splits are an advantage for the player, more splits = more chances for the player to improve first and later hands.  This is also why when you split aces most casinos give you only ONE additional card.  I don't recall if Stake follows that convention or not, but I expect it does.

So I would be surprised if more splits are added, but maybe, Stake has made pro-player changes in the past!

Good Luck!

Thanks for explaining why we can't hit after splitting aces :) 

OP: if you play blackjack properly, you should already be winning slightly. There's only very few cases where you'd want to split, and even fewer where you want to split more than once.

Ya thats what i asked myself plenty of times when i did play blackjack. Also when you split the A it just automates everything for you.. Whats up with that.. But maybe perhaps the reason for it is if were able to split more than once and ends up being able to split many times that it will run out of space on your phone screen or freeze the graphics??? lmao... just a hunch..

the rules regarding splitting have only gotten worse... it never was allowed to split more than once, and on Aces, stake used to allow being able to pull more card than 1 after split aces but now rules have changed so that is no longer allowed, cant even double a bet of split aces if i so wished... so yeah, stake has for sure over time made many changes to blackjack rules that has lowered and lowered the users chance to win...
                                                                                  
i wish they would just bring back original stake release blackjack rules... even for a month lol or temporarily... lol
but that wont happen, would stir up too many questions from those who arent that versed in the rules and whatnot.
