Evolution Gaming is known for pushing the boundaries and continuous innovation in online gaming, as well as the excellent quality of the novel products that they deliver. This autumn, the company takes Live Blackjack to a whole new level with the release of its new Live Infinite Blackjack.
Live Infinite Blackjack is a multi-player game with low bet limits in which both virtual and physical cards are dealt. There is literally no limit for the number of players and, after the initial hand that is common for everyone has been dealt, the players are free to make their own decisions, with real-time statistics of the others’ betting choices readily available. The awesome extra features that Evolution added to the main set are the four side bets and the Six-Card Charlie rule.
The game is available 24/7 on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones alike. The video is automatically adjusted for your screen size taking into account the quality of the connection. Essentially, you can play Live Infinite Blackjack on any device, anytime, anywhere without missing any of the game features.
Payout odds on the main and insurance bets are as follows:
The theoretical payout for Blackjack is 99,51%
In Live Infinite Blackjack, the dealer uses 8 standard decks of 52 cards.
In the core game, you are offered the standard main bets, plus the extra Six-Card Charlie rule.
If the dealer does not get Blackjack in the initial hand, you have two options to improve your hand: Hit or Double Down. Hit means that you are dealt an additional card. You can choose the Hit several times until you are happy with your hand’s value. Double Down means that your bet doubles and you get only one more card.
If you have received an initial hand of two equally valued cards, you can choose to Split it and turn it into two hands. Each of these hands will have a bet of its own with the value is the same as that of the main bet. After the Split, you can Hit or Stand, as usual. However, if you have separated a pair of Aces, you will only be deal one more card per hand and will not be able to Hit anymore. Keep in mind that a 21-value hand that you got as a result of a Split is not considered Blackjack and can be beaten by it.
You can also purchase Insurance. This option is only available if the dealer has an Ace upcard. The insurance amount is ½ of your main bet. If you opt for the Insurance, the dealer will peek at the downcard, and, if the dealer’s hand value is not 21, the round will continue; otherwise, if your initial two-card value is 17 or above that, the round will end with the dealer winning. If the dealer has Blackjack, and your initial two-card value is under 17, the dealer will go on drawing cards so that you have an opportunity to win under the Six-Card Charlie rule.
If both you and the dealer end up with a Blackjack on your hands, your bet will be returned.
The Six-Card Charlie rule guarantees that you win the main bet if you have a six-card hand the total value of which is 21. This rule applies regardless of whether the dealer has Blackjack or not. However, if the dealer has a Blackjack and his or her initial card is an Ace, there are two options
