Microgaming's version of the original Blackjack game designed for live dealer experience is played at seven-seat tables located in Toronto and broadcast live in stunning video quality. Featuring standard European rules, Live Blackjack may not support any side bets or live chat, but the Bet Behind option ensures you can always find a seat at the table.
Dealt from an eight-deck shoe and allocating 15 seconds per hand for the bet placement process, Live Blackjack offers fast-paced action in a highly rewarding setting, no matter if you play it using Casino View or Game View, with Autobet, My Waiting List and PlayCheck just some of the useful options at your disposal.
Players have the option to place their wagers on one of the empty seats at a table or simply bet behind a gamer who is already seated. Either way, you will make your bets by selecting from available chip sizes and clicking on the betting position.
Menu button located in the bottom left hand corner contains a number of tabs such as Options, Help Center, Seating, View and Close Table, and this is where you can select the preferred video and audio quality, camera view and full screen option.
As far as rules are concerned, dealer is required to stand on all 17s and Blackjack pays 3 to 2, while Insurance is available and Surrender is not. Double down can only be used if first two cards have a hard value of 9, 10, or 11 and the option is not available after a Split. Meanwhile, Split can only be used once per hand.
Designed to cater to casino gamers that have stayed true to the original variant, Live Blackjack has placed the game we all know and love in a contemporary setting, where the outstanding user interface makes everything all the more enjoyable. Players have the courtesy of choosing from a number of options during every aspect of game play and it is this customized user experience that makes the game stand out of the crowd.
