After you win, you can play a special "double or nothing" game called "double up".
You typically choose "High" or "Low". If the dealer draws 2-7, low wins, 8 is a "push" and you get your bet back, and for 9-Ace, high wins. If you win, you get double of your original winnings, and you can play "double up" again, if you lose, you get nothing.
"Double up" is one of the rare casino bets you can make with no house edge.

Double up in slots is a feature of certain video poker slot in which you can double your winnings.

District officials got the idea for wiring the bus during occasional drives on school business to Phoenix, two hours each way, when they realized that if they doubled up, one person could drive and the other could work using a laptop and a wireless card. They wondered if Internet access on a school bus would increase students’ academic productivity, too.

double up
1. Bend over suddenly, as in pain or laughter. For example, She doubled up with a cramp. [Late 1800s]
2. Share accommodations meant for one person, as in The hotel ran out of rooms, so we had to double up. [Late 1700s]

In basketball, a double is the accumulation of a double-digit number total in one of five statistical categories—points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots—in a game. Multiple players usually score double-digit points in any given basketball game; the double nomenclature is usually reserved for when a player has double-digit totals in more than one category. A double-double is the accumulation of a double-digit number total in two of the five categories in a game. The most common double-double combination is points-rebounds, followed by points-assists. Since the 1985–86 season, Karl Malone leads the National Basketball Association (NBA) in the points-rebounds combination with 811 and John Stockton leads the points-assists combination with 709. A triple-double is the accumulation of a double-digit number total in three of the five categories in a game. The most common way to notch triple-double is through points, rebounds, and assists. Oscar Robertson leads the all-time NBA list with 181. Jason Kidd leads the list among active players with 107. A quadruple-double is the accumulation of a double-digit number total in four of the five categories in a game. This has occurred four times in the NBA. A quintuple-double is the accumulation of a double-digit number total in all five categories in a game. Two quintuple-doubles have been recorded by high school girls, but none have occurred in college or professional games. A similar accomplishment is the five-by-five, which is the accumulation of at least five points, five rebounds, five assists, five steals, and five blocks in a game. In the NBA, only Hakeem Olajuwon and Andrei Kirilenko have accumulated multiple five-by-fives since the 1985–86 season.
