NetEnt Live Blackjack has a different look and feel from the standard studio Blackjack that we see elsewhere.
It’s presented on a more one on one basis. There is no view of a big studio with loads of table in the background.
What you get is a more modern take, a simple playing interface and the choice of two basic games.
Operators have a choice of using just the generic tables or having dedicated tables. Some use generic tables with branded backgrounds.
There are three versions of the game:
The basic rules of Netent Live Blackjack are the same across both versions of the game.
Blackjack Side Bets
Blackjack side bets are available as an optional extra for Operators. There’s two available:
Netent Live Blackjack is available on Mobile and PC .
7 Seat Blackjack
Regardless of what version of Blackjack you’re playing you’ll be using the same interface. It comes with lots of features and the really good thing about the interface is the list of last 10 Dealer hands.
I really like this feature and wish all of the software providers did this. It makes it so much easier to see whether the shoe is for or against the player.
On screen options include:
Mini Lobby – This is normally hidden but when you click on the arrow it displays a scrollable lobby showing all tables and games.
Full Screen mode – Displays the interface in Full Screen.
Volume – On/Off.
Dealers Last 10 Hands – Displays the dealers last 10 hands and also BJ’s and Busts as a percentage.
Player Information – Brings up a panel that gives links to the Games rules and Game History which open in a separate window.
Before cards are dealt you have to place a wager.
You’l get the money symbols up for you to select. If this is your second time betting then you can repeat your last bet. If you make a mistake you can clear the bet and start again.
After you’ve been dealt your first two cards you can take the following actions.
NetEnt use a mixture of Manual and Auto dealing shoes. The manual shoes are just boxes that hold the cards that have been shuffled by the dealer at the table. A cut card is introduced about 3/4 of the way through the deck and when that is dealt the shoe is changed for a new one.
If you get logged out or lose your connection and have already made a bet, your hand stands. You’ll be paid if your hand wins.
The Netent solution has some things going for it and will appeal to a certain type of player.
I think players who like to wager higher stakes will stay away from the games because of the game rules.
There are only a few tables, especially when you compare them against Playtech and Evolution, so at busy times it’s difficult to get a seat.
