Blackjack: Types of Games
Blackjack is one of the most “modified” game in the world, and despite the original, classic forms of the game (European Blackjack and American Blackjack) remaining ever-popular with players, there are now, a number of new-era Blackjack games, created by software providers to offer a unique and enhanced gaming experience to players…
And in the following article, we’re going to look at a few of the more popular Blackjack variations, which includes both side bet wages as well as the game itself.
Blackjack Perfect Pairs: If you play at a Perfect Pairs table, then you’ll find yourself playing normal European Blackjack rules (which means the dealer does not check for Blackjack and stands on all 17s), and in fact, the game is identical to European Roulette… with just one difference!
If you decide to play the Perfect Pairs side bet and your first two cards are of qualifying values/colours, you will be paid out at either 5/1, 10/1 or 35/1 dependent on your card combinations!
Blackjack Double Exposure: Double Exposure Blackjack isn't one of the most popular Blackjack games around, although it’s rapidly growing in popularity as more players latch on to it. During Blackjack Double Exposure, the dealer will deal both his cards as he deals yours… however, he will turn BOTH of up his face! And yes, this does mean that you can see both the dealer’s cards before you make any action!
Now clearly this is quite a significant edge and it does not come without a price to pay; first, if the dealer busts and gets 22, the hand is a tie and your stake is returned. The other main change is that Blackjack pays 3/2, as opposed to even money like it would in regular Blackjack.
Progressive Blackjack: progressive Blackjack is not a commonly found game, although it is becoming more frequent at online casinos thanks to its popularity at land-based casinos throughout the UK.
Much like a slot progressive, blackjack aggressive is feature a pooled sum of money, although unlike slots, players must place an additional wager in order to be eligible to win the jackpot.
While the exact jackpot mechanism differs between software providers, the major game developers typically reward the progressive when a player is dealt four aces in a row, although if the players very first one or two cards are aces, a small payout is usually awarded.
That’s just three of the Blackjack games you’ll find!
