Playtech has been working hard lately on developing fresh approaches to the game of blackjack. It is one of the most popular cards games, after all, and one in which the British software and services supplier has had a lot of success in the past.
The brand’s latest release is called Majority Rules Speed Blackjack, but you can also call it Best Strategy Blackjack, depending on the dominant game mode. The game was developed in collaboration with GVC and was exclusively launched for PokerStars, getting its network-wide release in July 2020.
By the looks of it, Playtech developers have found a new way of playing blackjack online with live dealers while maintaining some of the standard tropes of the game such as European blackjack rules and multiple-deck play. The main idea behind Majority Rules Speed Blackjack is community play, so the game is introducing a new way of betting via democracy. If the conditions for this game mode aren’t met – if there are not enough players for Majority Rules to be played – the game will not stop. It will merely switch to guided play where users follow the basic blackjack strategy.
