It's back to basics with a six-deck shoe and a single hand for the player in Rival Software's appropriately-named Single Hand Blackjack. Sometimes a return to the old classics is a good idea.

It's typical blackjack in this game, so the player can expect to receive two cards face up with which to start a hand totaling as close to 21 points in value without going over that number and while beating the dealer's hand.
 
In Rival's Single Hand Blackjack, there's a six-deck shoe shuffled after every hand. A push between dealer and player results in a "no bet" outcome, while insurance is not available in this game. The player may double down for one card, even after splitting a hand. And unlike 10-value cards may be split as well.
 
Single Hand Blackjack pays out at 3:2 on blackjack unless dealer blackjacks, in which case the hand is a push. A hand of ace-plus-10-card is scored as 21 and loses to the dealer's blackjack.
