Live Blackjack Party
Combining live blackjack and a party atmosphere seems like such an obvious thing to do that it is surprising no one has done it – until now. Live Blackjack Party is that combination you've been looking for. This is one game that takes blackjack to the next level by inviting a virtually unlimited number of people to participate in one way or another. Managing the game is a team of hosts that have been specifically trained for the party environment. Live Blackjack Party is a great experience in an online casino setting.
Live Blackjack Party Rules
Live Blackjack Party is all about maximising what players get out of the blackjack table. Live Blackjack Party is hosted by at least one trained dealer and a Hollywood-style presenter who keep the action going throughout. Other presenters may pop in from time to time; you just never know. Great party music playing in the background ties everything together nicely.
Adding to the party atmosphere is the fact that there is no limit to the number of players in the Live Blackjack Party room. Only seven can be seated at the table, but everyone else can join in by betting from behind. Don't worry, we explain what that means later on.
The great thing about Live Blackjack Party is that the host and dealer have been trained in how to keep the audience engaged by way of a presentation that feels an awful lot like a game show. And of course, players can interact with their hosts and one another through the built-in chat feature.
A complete blackjack game consists of multiple decks of cards loaded into the shoe at the start of play. Once all those cards have been played, the game is officially concluded. But that doesn't mean the party is over. The shoe is reloaded, and blackjack play begins again. You can hang out in the party as long as you want to. The music will keep playing, the hosts will keep chatting you up, and the cards will keep flying.
How To Play Live Blackjack Party
Standard blackjack rules apply to Live Blackjack Party. The goal of the game is the same: combining a hand of cards with a cumulative point value as close to 21 as possible. The dealer must stand at 17 and draw to 18. Players at the table have the options of standing, sitting, splitting, doubling down, and placing optional side bets.
The first of two side bets is the 21+3 bet. When you make this bet, you are betting that your two cards and the dealer's face-up card will form a flush, three of a kind, straight, or straight flush. Hit one of the four and you win an extra payout based on the hand formed.
The second side bet is the perfect pairs bet. Make this bet when you think the first two cards you are dealt will be a mixed, coloured, or perfect pair. It is a straightforward win or lose bet. Get a pair and you win. If you fail to get a pair, you lose the extra wager. Note that both side bets have to be placed before the cards are dealt.
Extra Features and Bonus Play
One of the things that sets Live Blackjack Party apart from other live blackjack titles is the number of special features available. Let's start with the betting from behind feature. This allows players not seated at the table to bet with seated players. Just choose your favourite player for the next hand and place your wagers based on what you believe he or she will do. Betting from behind gets you involved in the action even if you don't have a seat at the table.
The second special feature can help you choose the right player to align yourself with. Here's how it works: seated players on a hot streak show a gold-medal next to their names. The number displayed on the medal shows the number hands a player has won. Ribbons and stars attached to the medal show how hot a player is at the current time.
One last special feature you are sure to love is the pre-decision feature. This feature speeds up gameplay by allowing all of the seated players to make their decision to stand, hit, split, or double at the same time the first player is making his or her decision. The more players take advantage of pre-decision, the less time is spent waiting for each player's turn. This keeps the pace of the Live Blackjack Party game moving along.
There is a lot to love about Live Blackjack Party. If you're looking for a different kind of blackjack game that combines strategic casino play with the concept of having a party with an unlimited number of guests, this could be the game for you.
