Live Blackjack with Early Payout® V2.0

What is Basic Strategy Blackjack with Early Payout V2.0?

ViG's variation of blackjack is called Live Blackjack with Early Payout V2.0. This version of blackjack is based on the basic strategy odds where the blackjack player has the option to receive a payout after each deal for the theoretical payout based on the widely known basic strategy odds. This means that the player has the option to play the best theoretical hand thereby enjoying a 99.4% payout. ViG is one of the few live online platforms that offers this exclusive variation of blackjack with live dealers. The newest version of Live Blackjack with Early Payout is V2.0, which boasts more player options at each hand.

Early Payout is an opportunity to payout on your hand based on the cards dealt to you and the croupier's "up" hand. Meaning, you will not follow through with the hand dealt. The casino software will automatically calculate how much your payout will be based on the average estimated outcome of your hand versus the dealer's "up" hand. If you choose to payout, then your hand ends there and we will credit the payout to your gaming account. (Note that all player hands will be dealt to conclusion, even though you have chosen to payout.).

All play hands will be dealt to completion based on the Basic Strategy rules; until the hand Stands or Busts (goes over 21). The live Dealer draws on 16 and stands on 17. Blackjack pays 3 to 2.

How to win at Blackjack with Early Payout

The game of Blackjack is made easier for you playing online. The card game is not only following the basic strategy rules, but our gaming software will make the player hand decisions automatically. The player's decisions are the following:

If the live dealer's "up" card is an ace, then the player is presented the option of taking Insurance before the dealer checks their "down" card or "hole" card. This option is a side bet of up to half the player's initial bet. Insurance pays 2 to 1. The player looses the insurance if the dealer does not have blackjack, and you can still win or lose on the original bet.

Once the winners have been decided, the winning hands are paid.

All winnings are credited immediately to your gaming account.

Main features of the game:

You can bet on one, two or all 3 hands every time.  No waiting for a seat!  Lots of action!

Very fast play - dealers will always deal the cards according to the optimal player strategy known to professional players as Basic Strategy.  The benefits of this are both fast and consistent play.  Your result will never be affected by another player's poor decision nor will you have to wait.

While Basic Strategy will offer an exceptional game payout of 99.5%, blackjack players want choices.  For each hand where you have placed a wager, you can either follow the Basic Strategy decision to HIT/STAND/DOUBLE or SPLIT or choose a different option.

The default action will be highlighted Bright Blue OR you can select your own option highlighted in Silver.  Options will change depending on the hand.

For example, if the player has a 15 and the dealer has a 10, Basic Strategy will HIT.  However, one player can choose to STAND if he wants to, while other players accept the HIT.  If you choose STAND, the next card that comes out will not affect you and will appear as a Ghost Card on the user interface.

In all cases, you can elect to take fewer cards than Basic Strategy recommends (ie STAND or DOUBLE when Basic Strategy says to HIT).  However, you will never be allowed to HIT when the Basic Strategy says STAND because the dealer will always follow Basic Strategy no matter what the players choose.

Another amazing feature of this game is Early Payout.  Each time your hand changes, you will be offered an Early Payout amount highlighted in Green.  This is the amount of money you can take immediately to end the hand before any more cards are dealt.

For example, if you have a 20 and the dealer has a 10, you can take over 50% profit immediately - a very wise decision if the dealer ends up with 20!
 
Side Bets:
There are two side bets available on each of the three boxes:  PAIRS and RUMMY.

PAIRS bets pay 11:1 and win on any pair (e.g. 4,4, Q,Q, A, A).  If the Player's first two cards are a pair, you win!

RUMMY bets pay 9:1. This bet is also known as 2 plus 1 in some parts of the world. This bet uses a combination of 3 cards: the Player's first two cards PLUS the Dealer's UP card. There are 3 ways to win a RUMMY bet:
1. A 3 card straight (e.g. 4H, 5D, 6S).
2. 3 of the same card value (e.g. 10H, 10D, 10S)
3. 3 of the same suit / flush (e.g. 2D, 9D, KD)
