Of all the casino card games found online, Blackjack is one of the most popular. Not only is the game fun to play and easy to learn, it is also one of the few games where playing the right strategy can actually reduce the house edge!
There is a good reason why casino pros play Blackjack as it offers the lowest house edge of any casino game at the casino. While the electronic versions of Blackjack is certainly a good place to start, for anyone wanting a more authentic experience, JackpotCity offers live Blackjack, the online game that connects players to live casino dealers!
Unlike the electronic version, live dealer Blackjack uses real dealers to conduct the game on real tables with real cards. Players can even converse with the dealers as well as the other players around the table via the chat function built into the casino software.
Live dealer Blackjack perfectly blends the convenience of the online game with the realistic feel of the real thing. Evolution Gaming powers the live dealer version of Blackjack at JackpotCity Casino.
As the undisputed leaders in the live dealer casino industry, Evolution Gaming offer the highest quality games with dealers that have been specifically trained to interact with an online audience.
With live dealer Blackjack, the game will display a live camera feed of a dealer in one of the casino studios. The dealer stands behind a Blackjack table with up to seven virtual seats open at the front of the table. As with a real casino, you must log in and take an available seat. The camera will display a full view of the dealer as well as the table and the cards. During the game, a separate camera will show a close-up image of the hands that are being dealt.
A game of live dealer Blackjack starts with each player placing his or her bet. This can be done by clicking on the virtual chips at the bottom of the screen and placing them on the designated betting area in front of your seat.
A pop-up window is used as a chat facility where players can type messages to the dealer as well as the other players around the table. The dealer can respond to questions and comments by talking directly into the camera. Each player around the table takes a turn placing their bets.
Once all the bets have been placed, the dealer will deal each player two cards and herself/himself two cards with one card facing up. Live dealer Blackjack is played in exactly the same way as the classic land-based version.
The aim is to beat the dealer’s hand by creating the highest hand possible close to 21 points without going over 21. Once the first deal has been made, each player will get a turn to hit, stick, split or double down depending on what hand they were dealt. In most Evolution Gaming Blackjack games, players can also place side bets on pairs.
After each player has gone through their respective deals, the dealer will flip over his or her down facing card and see if he or she can beat the player’s hand. If you are a winner, your payout will be paid straight into your account!
At JackpotCity casino, there are a number of Blackjack variants that you can choose from. Evolution Gaming offers a number of different Blackjack varieties, including low and high limit games, and Blackjack Party, where the aim is to have fun and bet with low stakes.
Some of the games offer a bet behind feature as well as a pre-decision feature where you can decide to hit or stick as soon as the first player at the table has made their decision.
No matter what style of Blackjack you prefer, or how you like to play, JackpotCity has a live dealer game that will blow you away!
