Common Draw Blackjack
Common Draw Blackjack is a live casino game developed by software provider Net Entertainment. Net Entertainment, which is commonly known as NetEnt, is a publicly traded online software company that was established in 1996 in Sweden. NetEnt was one of the first companies to provide online casinos with software, including casinos in the USA.
Among the online casino games that Net Entertainment offers, are a number of live dealer games. Live dealer games are different to other online casino games because they use a real person as a dealer and the game is played in real time. Players have the opportunity to see the gaming table and the dealer as well as communicate with the dealer during the game. One of these games is Common Draw Blackjack.
How to Play Common Draw Blackjack
Common Draw Blackjack is not the same as the traditional Blackjack game, however, it does still have stick to the standard rules of American Blackjack. In Blackjack the player is competing against the dealer instead of against other players.
The aim of the game is for the player’s cards to add up to 21 or the closest possible number, higher in value than the dealer’s, without going over 21 points. Initially the player will receive two cards face up and the dealer will also receive two cards but only one of them will be face up. The player must decide, based on the number value of his two cards as well as the number value of the dealer’s face up card, whether he wishes to hit, stand, double, split pairs or to surrender.
The difference between standard Blackjack and Common Draw Blackjack is that in Common Draw Blackjack the players are all playing with the same hand against the dealer. This means that the dealer will deal the same two cards to all the players who have signed in for the live game. This ensures that the game is faster paced because players do not have to wait in line for their turn but will be dealt their first two cards all at once.
After the initial two cards have been dealt, the players will make their own individual decisions on which option they would like to take. This means that one player may wish to hit while another may stand and a third might split the pair. The dealer will continue to deal cards until all the players have shown their hands. Once this occurs they will play their own hand against the players that have chosen to stand. Remember that in Blackjack players are only competing against the dealer so it does not matter what the other players have done with their cards as long as you think you can beat the dealer.
Features of Common Draw Blackjack
Live casino games do not have all the bonuses that slot machine games have and are played in a similar fashion to how they are played in land-based casinos. They do, however, have certain features. Firstly, in Common Draw Blackjack the player can follow the actions of the dealer in real-time via live streaming.
Not only can the player follow the dealer but they can also interact with the dealer as well as other players at the table via a live chat in much the same manner a player at a land-based casino is able to. Lastly, a unique feature of Common Draw Blackjack is the fast pace at which the game is played in comparison to other live Blackjack games.
