One issue I’ve been having lately playing (or trying to play) live blackjack is that during busy times at the bigger casinos/platforms it can be difficult to get a seat. It seems that as fast as Playtech and Evolution Gaming add more tables and dealers, they get snapped up by an ever growing legion of live gaming converts.
Low limit tables in particular are tough to get a seat at during peak hours.
Unlimited live blackjack is Playtech’s answer to this. It’s just recently been added to their suit of Euro dealer studio games and is available at bet365, William Hill, BetFred and various other Playtech casinos.
It allows an unlimited number of players to play the one table/dealer. In effect it’s a One-to-Many blackjack version where each hand/seat can be played by any number of players. You still play an exclusive hand; the dealt cards are just allocated to you based on your bet decisions. For example, if you stand and other players at that same seat hit then the next card dealt isn’t allocated to you.
The game rules are the same as the classic 7-seat, multi-player version (blackjack pays 3:2, dealer stands on all 17s, 8-deck shoe etc) with the one exception…splits are an automatic play on pairs. You can either split or fold/push the hand…standing or hitting isn’t an option.
One other thing…you can play up to 5 hands each deal.
As I found playing the game for the first time today, the dealers are very helpful with any questions you might have about the game.
