Online Vegas Blackjack
Playing Vegas blackjack online offers the same feel as if playing in a real casino. The software developed by Amaya has allowed the game to transfer onto our screens effortlessly. The slick design of the table and attention to detail in the chips and cards is impressive without distracting the player from the game itself. This version of the game is with 4 decks and offers options of insurance, double down and splitting hands. The dealer will stand at 17 also known as a soft 17.
Blackjack is also known around the world as twenty-one and the object of the game is to beat the dealer. Players must reach a final score that is higher than the dealers without exceeding 21.
Players must place bets before the cards are dealt. Each seat will receive 2 cards facing upwards and the dealer will receive 2 with one facing down and one facing up. The dealers hand will only be revealed once all players’ hands are complete. Depending on the hand dealt to the player, they have the option to hit, stand, split or double down. If a players hand exceeds 21 they will have bust and lost that hand regardless of what the dealer has.
Players can choose to play between 1 and 5 hands at any time as there are 5 seats at the table. All hands are played against the dealer and not each other. Players need to select how many chips they wish to play before selecting which seat to play it at.
Players have many ways to customize game play according to preference.
By selecting the settings button a few options will pop up. Players can then choose to play with or without insurance. Using insurance in this game acts as a side bet and comes into play when the dealer’s card that is facing up is an ace. The settings options include a player warning section which will see the game offer suggestions before a move is made if it is not the best move to make. Players can disable all these options at any time.
There is also an option to place auto-bets. This can be customized to the amount of hands to play in a row, how many seats to play and includes a stop option.
This game offers player the chance to take advantage of an auto-strategy option. When this option is active, the system will play all the hands for you at the betting and seat selection that has customized in the auto-bet section.
The auto-strategy may be edited to your preference but this is time consuming and requires a lot of knowledge about odds and winning combinations. To edit choices, players must select what the game should do on each hand by changing the current setting. Players can choose to hit, stand, split and double hands at their discretion. Once all changes have been made, players can allow the system to play their hands automatically. This is a very user friendly game and the vast options for game play makes this a fun way of playing blackjack.
