    If your preferred game of choice is Blackjack, but you fancy some lockdown variety you might want to give the Italian card game a try.


    As the loading screen explains the game is similar to Blackjack....albeit with several differences (cue LD & another nice explanatory blog )

    Dealer Elena pictured is one of Playtech's longest surviving original dealers who switched en masse 'overnight' to speaking Italian ..... so you shouldn't be surprised to discover the table language is Italian.


    But what better opportunity than lockdown to begin learning a new language in the process of playing the game right

    Thanks for the heads up Fester. I'm on it!

    Nice to have a new traditional card game, rather than another game show.
    'coz good old fashioned real random beats simulated random any day

    My thoughts exactly when I played the game,

    ....the different deck of cards makes a change also.

    Where can I play it Fester?

    Tried all the usual suspects...365, Paddies, Betfair etc and couldn't find it.

    Thought perhaps it was wrong time of day, but I’ve just checked... it’s live now via William Hill (blackjack tables)

    while LD plays catch up a little more info on some of those differences from blackjack....


    Firstly:

    > your aim is to beat the dealer's hand without going over 7 .... anything over is BUST


    Obviously that's a lot less than the 21 target we're used to on blackjack and with the normal 52 deck of cards you'd be bust more often than not before the game got started. So....
