One of the leading providers of live dealer content, Evolution Gaming, added a new Blackjack release to its line-up of games earlier this month.
Titled Power Blackjack, the fresh launch is set to become a valuable part of the developer’s Infinite range, which already includes such popular games as Infinite Blackjack and Free Bet Blackjack.
Online gambling fans can look forward to a Blackjack experience with a twist, with lots of excitement and wide wagering option for players to explore. That’s why we’re sure the new Power Blackjack will be a good addition to the company’s portfolio.
How to Play Power Blackjack
Power Blackjack is played with eight decks, and to Vegas Rules, which means the dealer receives two cards. We should point out that the dealer peeks for Blackjack while standing on all seventeens. Split Aces awards a single card, with Blackjack and insurance paying 3:2 and 2:1 respectively.
Once the game starts, you’ll have twelve seconds to place your wager. You can play one of four optional side bets only after the initial bet is made.
- Hot3 – Here you can wager on whether the first two cards drawn by the player and the dealer’s upcard will make a total of 19, 20, 21, or three sevens.
- 21+3 – Bet whether the player’s cards and the upcard will from a three-card Poker hand.
- Any Pair – Bet that the player’s initial two cards will form a pair.
- BustIt – You get paid if the dealer busts! The more cards the dealer bust, the bigger will your reward be.
The action starts after Betting Time is completed, and that’s when players will have to decide the next step. Their next move will depend on the cards they got, with six possible choices.
Players can continue to take cards or opt to Stand. In case the player’s hand includes a pair, it can be split into two separate hands that are played independently.
They can also choose to Double, Triple and even Quadruple the stake. This move can be made after splitting a hand as well.
