At the start of a game of blackjack, an initial bet is placed before the cards are dealt. Most of the time, you won't be able to place any additional bets. But the double down is different. The double down lets you place an additional bet, equal to your ante, in return for one extra card - and one card only.

- When you have a hard 9 or 10 (“hard” describes a hand with no ace).
