Saw a multi-game machine in a casino on the French Riviera. Had single-deck and double-deck video blackjack along with video poker and keno. Assuming that single-deck automatically reshuffles in between every hand (which is what I've heard), what would be the difference/benefit to offering double deck video blackjack? Does the existence of the double-deck option imply that this variant doesn't shuffle after each hand and, instead, runs down to a virtual cut card and then reshuffled after enough hands?

Assuming both have the same rules and 3:2 blackjack, is there a reason to play one over the other?

Thanks in advance for any help.

The casino gains a slight edge with every deck so normally the SD is better. IF you can determine the shuffle point, the DD might get better. Can you bet $1 in bad counts and $100 in good ones? If you can positively answer yes to all three questions, you found a very good game.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Thatís only one question.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.
