Microgaming wanted to give you the ultimate blackjack experience, so it designed a game that is so realistic that you would actually feel like you’re playing the game in a real brick-and-mortar casino. Get ready to be mind-blown with the special full frontal view of the table and choose your denominations for those massive wins.
Played with two standard decks of 52 cards, meaning 104 playing cards in total, European Blackjack will provide you with so much fun. But you need to keep up with the following rules.
You can split only the two cards which have the same denomination. The only cards that you can double down are the first two cards if they are a hard hand (a hand with no A or an A valued 1 and not 11) valued 11, 10 or 9 only. However, you cannot double down after a split. On all hands with a value of 17, the dealer stands.
The game does not offer the surrender bet option, however, it offers the insurance bet. You can take insurance against the dealer if the dealer's first card is an A, and you're positive the dealer will be getting blackjack. Whether your insurance bet loses or wins is independent of your regular bet, and costs half of the bet amount. You should know that the insurance will only cover that particular hand and no second hands on a double down or a split. If the dealer has a blackjack, you get paid at odds 2:1. If not, the insurance bet cost is deducted from your balance and the game continues.
With its stylish and sophisticated elements, European Blackjack is an exquisite addition to the developer's outstanding table games selection. It was designed to personalize your gameplay and overall gaming experience so you will see exciting animations, realistic sounds and seamless table graphics. However, you will also notice the left-handed layout and the incredible turbo mode that brings fluid gameplay. The game performs perfectly on all mobile devices as it is specifically optimized for mobile play.
The chip denomination goes from $1.00 to $200.00. Typically to blackjack games, European Blackjack has an amazing RTP of 99.60%.
As far as payouts, you can calculate them by dividing the odds. For instance, insurance bet win pays 2:1 so you divide 2 by 1 and you get 2. Multiply the 2 by your regular bet, say the max bet of $200.00, you get $400.00 plus the amount of your regular bet of $200.00, and you get a $600.00 payout. Blackjack pays 3:2, or $500.00 for the max bet, and standard wins 1:1 meaning $400.00. If you get Blackjack, your hand stands and if the dealer’s hand exceeds 21 and it is bust, you win.
