Optimized for playing on multiple devices (tablet, desktop and phone), Mayfair Blackjack is an 8 deck variant with two side bets and a Bet Behind option in case there are no available seats (the number of table seats is limited to 7, but thanks to the Bet Behind feature, there is no real limit to how many players can actually join the game).
Blackjack variants released by Evolution are known by their exceptional quality and authenticity, and Mayfair Blackjack is no exception. Inspired by the affluent West End area in London, famous by the exclusive restaurants, hotels and gambling venues, Mayfair Blackjack gives you the taste of glamour and elegance that you can only find in the upscale part of European capitals.
Mayfair is a standard structure Blackjack game, where the main objective is to beat the dealer's hand without busting or getting a hand that exceeds the total of 21. Dealers start the session by dealing one card face up to each of the players and themselves. The second card is then added to the players' hands, followed by a card for the dealer, this time facing down.
Once the cards are dealt, the player can ask for a new card in order to increase the hand total and beat the house. The other option is to stand and wait for the dealer to reveal the card facing down. In this particular variant, the dealer must stand on soft 17 and draw on 16. Insurance option is made available if you would like to protect yourself against the dealer's Blackjack
In addition to standard bets, Perfect Pairs and 21+3 side bets are included in Mayfair Blackjack, with the separate payout table applied for the hands consisting out of a pair (suited, same colour and mixed) or for the combination of the player’s hand and the dealer’s up card that forms Flush, Straight, Three of a Kind and Straight Flush.

Every element of the game, from video and audio quality to the overall functionality of the interface is skilfully executed, allowing the player to completely emerge in the game.
