    Unlimited live blackjack

    Had a play of Playtech's new 'Unlimited live blackjack'. In a nutshell it's a one-to-many live blackjack game - ie there's no limit to the number of players that can play the one table/dealer.

    Game rules are the same as the classic 7-seat version (8 decks, BJ pays 3:2, dealer stands hard & soft 17 etc) but there is one exception...see Splits below.

    What I liked...

    • You're always going to get a seat no matter how busy the casino is.
    • You can play up to 5 hands each deal.
    • The dealers are very helpful explaining the game and answering any queries you may have
    • being a one-to-many type game it's quick

    What I didn't like...

    • the Split rule... when you get a pair your options are Split or Fold/Push. You can't hit or stand - and there are plenty of instances where the basic strategy play is to Hit or Stand on a pair.


    It's available now at bet365, William Hill, BetFred

    Have a play and see what you think.

    Hmm, you are almost right. So the split...
    The split option is given only then if the sistem have decided to be the best option for the Player. For example, pair of aces - automatic split, or, if you wish, fold (-20%fee). BUT on pair of tens you will not given the option to split. As in the attachment - only on those orange spots you will be given the split option.

    Thanks for clearing that up dealer.

    I only played for a half hour or so and was only dealt the pairs that give the split option...so assumed it was for all pairs (should never assume right?)

    That changes things considerably.

    Are many players playing it?

    And complete house rules...

    Live Unlimited Blackjack has five main betting positions, five Player Perfect Pair betting positions and one Dealer Perfect Pair betting position. The game allows an unlimited number of players to bet on five main betting positions within a single game round.

    Live Unlimited Blackjack allows all of the players at the table to place bets on any of the five positions. Multiple players may place bets on the same seat. If two players are playing on the same position, one may choose to Stand and the other may choose to Hit. In this case, the dealer will deal another card to the position, but the player who chose to stand will not receive the card.

    The object of Blackjack is for the total of your cards to be closer to 21 than the dealer's cards without exceeding 21. In Blackjack, Aces count as either one or 11, picture cards as 10, and number cards as their face value.

    If you receive an Ace and a ten-value card as your first two cards, you have Blackjack and win one-and-a-half times your bet (if your bet was 10, you receive 25). If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer's, you win as much as you had wagered (if your bet was 10, you receive 20). If the total of your cards is more than 21, you 'bust' and lose your bet. If you and the dealer have the same card total (17 and up), neither of you win, and your bet is returned to you in a 'push'. Blackjack beats a score of 21.

    Unlimited Blackjack follows the standard 'Las Vegas Strip' rules, with the following exceptions:
    • Only one card is drawn to split Aces.
    • The dealer will not check for Blackjack in any case.
    • If the player doubles and the dealer's first card is of value 11 (Ace), and the dealer gets Blackjack, the player loses both their bets.
    • If the player doubles and the dealer's first card is a value of 10, and the dealer gets Blackjack, half of the stake is returned.

    Side bets
    In addition to the main game, 'Perfect Pairs' and '21+3' side bets are also available.

    Payouts

    Main Game Payout
    • Winning hand: 1 to 1
    • Insurance: 2 to 1
    • Blackjack: 3 to 2

    Side Game Payout
    • Red/Black Pair: 6 to 1
    • Colored Pair: 12 to 1
    • Perfect Pair: 25 to 1

    21+3 Side Bets Payout
    • Suited three of a kind: 100 to 1
    • Straight Flush: 40 to 1
    • Three of a kind: 30 to 1
    • Straight: 10 to 1
    • Flush: 5 to 1

    RETURN TO PLAYER
    Theoretical return to player rate for optimal play: 99.5%

    & I think it’s worth sticking this thread (inc. rules) to the top of the blackjack section, especially as there are other Unlimited format blackjack tables now at Playtech eg. the new Discojack table & Sky Casino private.
