One of the leading names in the online gambling industry, Playtech, expanded its offering of games earlier this month with the launch of a brand-new release. Titled Majority Rules Speed Blackjack, the developer’s recent addition to its extensive portfolio is a scalable game with a special focus on community play.
Punters from all over the world can look forward to classic Blackjack gameplay, albeit with an important twist, as Playtech prepared a new approach when it comes to the interaction between players. The new gameplay and the two modes on offer are sure to make this release stand out in the crowd.
Bringing Democracy to Blackjack
At first, the new Majority Rules Speed Blackjack will not appear different from any other Blackjack title available online. The game is played with multiple decks, and with European rules applied. All players taking part in the game will see the same cards, while their decisions will be made based on the hand they’ve been dealt. What sets this game apart from other standard Blackjack titles is the way decisions are made. You will not be able to do that by yourself. No, you’re only allowed to vote, just like the rest of the table. In the end, the decision with the majority of votes will win. Hence the name Majority Rules Speed Blackjack.Any decision, whether to hit, stand, double, or split, will need to get the support of more than half of players before it’s played. That’s how the Majority Rules mode works. Playtech understood this mechanism might not appeal to some punters. That’s why the company’s developers decided to create a more dynamic playing experience with rounds going much faster than usual. That way, they made the game more appealing to seasoned Blackjack players, as newbies are likely to make more mistakes and bad decisions.
