Across the world, the Blackjack tables in land casinos never fail to draw in players. It is a hugely popular game that is easy to learn, full of excitement, and offers the chance of real winnings. The atmosphere at Blackjack tables is often riveting and this also adds to the excitement of the game.
Luckily, you don’t need to visit a land casino to experience this atmosphere for yourself. Live Blackjack games enable you to immerse yourself in it whenever you desire, without the need to leave your own home. Here at Queenplay, we have a huge number of Live Blackjack tables available to players, and you are guaranteed to find the perfect one for you.
Advantages to Playing Live Blackjack
As noted above, one of the main advantages to playing Live Blackjack is that it allows you to immerse yourself in the action whenever you wish. The action is captured by high definition video cameras and streamed to you complete with audio straight from the casino floor. Thanks to this, the experience is highly engaging and realistic, and for many, will be far more enjoyable than playing a traditional RNG online Blackjack game.
There is nothing quite like the thrill of seeing the dealer in action, and it is far more exciting than even the most realistic of animations. You can also experience communicating with the dealer, and see their reactions when it comes to their turn to play.
Another huge advantage to playing online is that you will be able to enjoy the experience of playing with a professional dealer without having to bet vast amounts. In land casinos, the minimum bets at Blackjack tables are relatively high. However, here at Queenplay you will find numerous tables that accept very low minimum bets, some of them as small as just €0.50 per hand. Of course, if you want to bet big then there are plenty of options for you, and at our VIP tables you can bet many thousands if you so wish. Furthermore, with so many tables to choose from, if you don’t like a particular dealer then you can always move to a different table.
The convenience of playing Live Blackjack cannot be overstated. If you want to visit a land casino then you have to plan for it. You need to arrange travel there and back, which takes time, you need to check if there is a dress code, and so on. If you want to play Live Blackjack, all you need to do is visit this website, login, and you can start playing in seconds. Don’t forget, the Live Blackjack games are also mobile compatible, so you can play on your smartphone or tablet device with ease, whenever you so desire.
A final major advantage to Live Blackjack is the choice of games. At the majority of land casinos, while there may be tables with different betting limits, all of the tables follow the same rules. When playing Live Blackjack, you will find that there are numerous variants available, giving you more choice than ever before.
For example, here at Queenplay in addition to regular Blackjack, you can enjoy games such as Blackjack Party, which features two hosts to create a truly sociable atmosphere. Alternatively, you may wish to try games such as Free Bet Blackjack, Infinite Blackjack or Power Blackjack, all of which introduce slightly different rules and can be a huge amount of fun.
Live Blackjack Features
Our Live Blackjack games are packed with features that are designed to enhance your experience. For instance, all of the games include live chat functionality. This allows you to chat with the dealer and the other players in real time, bringing a social atmosphere to the game and making it even more like visiting a land casino. All of our dealers are very friendly, and they will be more than happy to engage with you as you play at their tables.
The games also offer a Bet Behind feature, which is something you won’t find at any land casinos. It allows you to join in with the action even if all the seats at a table are taken. For instance, if you are watching a table and you see that a player is doing particularly well, then you can bet on their hand and try to share in their success. Best of all, you can even use this feature if you are seated at a table, which gives you the chance to enjoy more betting action than ever before with each round.
Some people feel that Live Blackjack is a bit too slow. To help with this, you will find an Initial Decision feature at our regular Blackjack tables. It is designed to cut the waiting time by allowing the players positioned in seats two to seven to make their decisions as soon as their cards are dealt. In other words, a player can decide whether to Hit, Stand, Double Down or Split at the same time as the player in seat one, which means that the dealer will not be waiting for each player to decide what to do.
At many of our Live Blackjack tables, you will also find a number of side bets. These are optional bets that give you the chance to win even more. The two most common side bets are the Perfect Pairs and the 21+3.
The Perfect Pair side bet wins if the first two card dealt to you form one of three types of pair, a Perfect Pair (two identical cards), a Coloured Pair (two cards of the same value and colour), or a Mixed Pair (two cards of the same value).
The 21+3 side bet wins if the player’s first two cards and the dealer’s up card form a Suited Three of a Kind, a Straight Flush, a Three of a Kind, a Straight, or a Flush.
You will find may more features at our Blackjack tables, such as the ability to customise the display, all of which will help you have even more fun and become even more involved in the Blackjack action.
How to Place Bets at Live Blackjack Tables
Placing bets at a Live Blackjack table is incredibly straightforward. When you open a table, you will be assigned one of the seats and you will see that table position highlighted on your screen. When it comes to placing a bet, all you need to do is select the chip size you wish to use from the bottom of the screen and then place it in the betting area on the table.
The same is true in regards to the side bets described above. There are smaller circles around the main betting and each is labelled with the name of a different side bet. If you wish to place any of the side bets, then at the beginning of a hand simply drop your chips into the appropriate betting area. Before a round starts there is a defined betting time, and you can see a count down on screen, so you know how long you have left to place your bet.
When it comes to your turn to play a hand, the process is similarly straightforward. Buttons will appear showing you the various options available to you (Hit, Stand, Double Down, etc.). All you need to do is click on the button and the game will take the appropriate action for you. If you choose an action that requires further bets to be placed, such as Split or Double Down, then the chips will automatically be placed on the table.
Thanks to this system, playing the game is a seamless experience and the action is able to flow with almost no breaks at all.Less info
