One Blackjack is a one to many deal blackjack table. A single physical card deal caters to many players.

You are still playing your hand exclusively. Only cards that you choose to draw are attributed to your playing hand, which is displayed (to you) virtually. A tricky concept to explain, but quite easy to get the hang of once you’ve played a couple rounds.

Speed deal blackjack table

Pragmatic Play Speed Blackjack

Pragmatic Speed Blackjack

Speed Blackjack is one for the impatient players. It’s still a 7 seat table, but game rounds are faster than those on the classic 7 seat tables.

One reason for this is a reduced betting time. But the major reason, is a different order in which players draw cards.

Rather than the regular approach where each player in turn gets to decide whether to hit or stand, in Speed Blackjack players draw cards on a first to decide, first to receive basis. Cumulative decision making time is reduced considerably.

Aside from the order in which cards are drawn, house rules are identical to the other classic 7 seat tables.
