This variant of blackjack is played with six decks of cards, and the goal is the same as in the common blackjack – to be as close as possible to 21, and to beat the dealer’s combination. You play alone against the dealer, and the game has a number of options which will give you more chance to make a decision which will beat the dealer’s odds – split, double down, insurance.
The rules of the game are mostly in line with the “Las Vegas Strip” rules, but with certain modifications, such as: after each round, the deck will be shuffled again; you can split only once to two hands; you are allowed to double after you split, and the doubling can be conducted only on 9, 10, and 11; no late surrender will be accepted; as for the dealer, they only draw one hand, and they wait until the player finishes the round to draw again; if the dealer hits a blackjack, the player loses their bet, regardless of the doubling or splitting they previously opted for; when winning using insurance, the player doesn’t get back any doubled or split wagers.
The people at Betsoft always do their homework when it comes to sounds and graphics. This game is no exception – it creates a wonderfully authentic feeling of a real, land casino, bringing all the thrill and dynamics into the comfort of your own home. It’s definitely worth giving a try.
