The good old game of Blackjack is the go-to for thousands of casino players around the world, so it’s no surprise that there’s no shortage of tables available online. The game we’ll be talking about here is provided by BETER Live, a leading provider of live casino games that offers multiple blackjack tables.
BETER Live blackjack is available in three distinct styles – regular, Asian, and Speed blackjack. The Asian variant simply uses a more colorful studio, which is the only difference compared to the sleek black-and-gold sets used at other tables. As the name implies, Speed blackjack simply speeds up the pace of the game by around 20%.
It’s also worth noting that BETER Live also offers Gravity Blackjack, a more distinct variant that uses a one-to-many table and multipliers. Gravity Blackjack is different enough to warrant its own review, which you can find here.
No matter which one of these tables you choose, you can expect excellent production value and a great atmosphere. These are all staples of BETER Live games, along with top-notch dealers and a user-friendly interface.
If you’re looking for more info on the rules, payouts, and features of BETER Live Blackjack, this review covers everything you need to know.
Generally speaking, BETER Live Blackjack is a classic rendition of the popular casino card game. Blackjack is a relatively complex game, however, so we won’t be covering every single rule and option. If you’re completely new to blackjack and need some help starting out, check out our beginner’s guide. This review will simply cover some of the rules that sometimes vary depending on which blackjack game you choose.
To play, simply find an available table and take your seat. Tables are limited to 7 hands at a time, so you may have to wait a while if there’s no available room. Of course, you can also simply choose to Bet Behind other players. You can also take up multiple seats and play each hand separately.
Anyway, the interface in Live Blackjack by BETER is quite intuitive, so it’s fairly easy to figure out what to do. Use the chips at the bottom of the screen to select the size of your stake. Then, click on any bets you wish to make to place them.
As far as the rules of BETER Live Blackjack are concerned, here are the highlights:
All in all, it’s a pretty strong set of rules. We only wish that there was an option to Surrender, but that’s extremely rare in live casino blackjack.
All BETER Live Blackjack game tables come equipped with two side bets. Both are fairly common in the industry, but we’ll cover the basics of how they work.
Additionally, you can Bet Behind other players even if you don’t have a spot at the table. This means that you can wager that another player will win, which is useful if there are no available seats (or if you see someone doing well and want a piece of the action.)
The payouts in Live Blackjack by BETER are industry-standard for blackjack. Everything pays as you would expect it to, which is a good thing in this case.
Still, we’ve included a full list of all possible outcomes below.
|Player/Dealer Pairs Side Bet|
|21+3 Side Bet|
|Suited Three of a Kind||100:1|
BETER Live Blackjack RTP is 99.51%, which is slightly above average compared to most similar games. Excellent long-term returns are one of the perks of playing blackjack, but we’re still glad to see BETER decided to go with a player-friendly set of rules.
The figure we just mentioned only applies to the main bet and assumes you’re using basic blackjack strategy. The Player/Dealer Pair and 21+3 side bets have 95.90% and 96.30% RTP, respectively.
Besides the gameplay features described above, BETER Live Blackjack also includes a number of quality-of-life improvements. For starters, you can customize video quality, audio levels, and other options in the menu at the top. This is where you’ll also find the “tip jar” for the dealers, full information about the game, and so on. There’s also an option to hide other players and their cards if you want.
Importantly, the game will make an automatic decision for you if you fail to make a call in the allotted time. All hands 11 or lower hit automatically, while those above 11 always stand. It’s not a strictly optimal way to play, so we suggest making your own calls.
