Medialive offer one game of live blackjack but it’s presented in two different ways dependent on the options that the casino chooses.
Both options are streamed from their studio in Malta.
So you’ll get one or both of these views depending on which casinos you play at.
The game itself is the same whatever version you get.
The playing interface has a basic set of configurable options and statistics that can be viewed while your playing.
There is a basic set of features available when playing at the tables and they are on a par with other live casino software providers.
The one feature missing that would speed up the games is a “deal now” feature when you’re playing on a table on your own. Betting time is 12 seconds, but that can seem like an age if you like a quick game (which I do).
Once you’ve placed your initial bet here is a Pre Decision option that will allow you to decide what to do before the dealer reaches your playing positions.
It’s very useful to keep things ticking along, but I have to question why they have made it so small on the screen.
If you haven’t selected Pre-decision or your taking a second card you’ll be presented with the larger decision box.
The available actions speak for themselves.
If the dealer has drawn an Ace you’ll be offered Insurance. This is an optional bet of half your initial stake.
If the dealer has a Blackjack you’ll be paid at 2:1.
You’ll lose your initial bet though so effectively you come out even.
If you’ve placed a bet and it has been accepted and then lose connection the system will ask for another card if the value of your hand is below or equal to 11. Once it’s over 11 the hand will stand.
This is a slightly better option than just standing on the initial two cards which is what you get with Ezugi Live Blackjack.
Good news is that you can play on your mobile device without the use of an App.
Being brutally honest I don’t really like the Medialive Live Blackjack for the following 3 reasons.
There’s also no peek for Blackjack, so it’s possible for you to build your hand and add more bets only to find that you lose against a Blackjack.
In my opinion there are better Live Blackjack options.
