Earlier this year, NetEnt boosted its live casino offering by revamping its lobbies and upgrading its studios, extending the availability of some if its tables with live dealers.
Blackjack Emerald is one of the tables that are now available around the clock and it features one of the stylish separate blackjack rooms in the new physical studio.
We assume the name of the table comes from the fact that the studio is decorated with emerald drapes, marble-like walls and white bulbs as sources of light, giving it an elegant look, very easy on the eyes. As for the game itself, it hasn’t changed much from the NetEnt standard. Don’t worry, you will enjoy a perfectly regular game of 7-seat blackjack with side bets and also options to take insurance or play multiple hands.
As mentioned above, Blackjack Emerald is a 7-seat blackjack game, so there are 7 players participating in the game at any one time, if all seats are taken, which they do not have to be, of course.
The dealer will deal cards from a manual shoe containing 8 decks of cards. The cards are shuffled with 50% penetration. The way you play this game is not unusual – you will wait for the betting time to start and place your main bet. The dealer will deal a card to their position and 2 cards to each seated player. Players will take turns at taking action on their hand. When all players at the table have taken their turn, the dealer draws a card or cards to their own hand.
You can hit, stand or double. You can split pairs and you can hit only once after splitting Aces. If the dealer’s ﬁrst card is an Ace, you can buy insurance. Blackjack pays 3:2 and a winning hand pays even money. You can take the Perfect Pairs side bet and hope for a payout at 30:1 odds, or try your luck with 21+3 and possible win a 100:1 payout for a suited trips hand. Players are allowed to play up to three seats at once. The player’s bet will automatically be applied to all of his/her occupied seats. One can’t place different bets for each seat.
Another game of blackjack with live dealers and a return to player rate of 99.50% - isn’t that splendid! It is, indeed, as always NetEnt delivers a stunning game with favourable blackjack rules. The only thing we find problematic about this game is the fact that it is a 7-seater.
Chances are the table will be often full, but not you can try and take a seat at any time since the game is running 24/7. Set in a luxurious environment, Blackjack Emerald is a fast-paced live casino game which maintains the traditional casino values and there is no reason to believe it will not be successful
