It can be done different amounts of times and with different cards. Doubling down can be done in some cases only for limited scores but in others even after splitting. Some variations offer winning insurance that pays back part of the bet back (normally half), if the dealer gets a blackjack. Also surrendering is offered differently in different blackjack variations. In some games you are able to surrender only in the beginning and in some even later giving that the dealer hasn’t got a blackjack.
