Visionary iGaming has 3 different versions of Live Blackjack.
Strictly speaking, only two of them are played against live dealers as the third is an RNG game. I mention it only because it’s packaged with the other two versions.
I’ll begin by saying that Visionary iGaming live blackjack is unique.
They are the only provider to offer something called Blackjack with Early Payout, where you’re able to cash in your hand before the dealer has played his.
It’s a more advanced version of Blackjack Surrender. So you can cash out for a profit rather than just getting half your stake returned to you when you surrender.
For that reason and others I’ll go into later it’s well worth playing their version of Blackjack. Advantage players can play the odds better and get a return on potentially losing hands.
The three games are:
This is a three-handed unlimited game, where multiple players play the same hand. You’ll never get a problem getting a seat and you play the hand as your own. Other player’s decisions have no impact on your hand.
This is a more traditional 7 Seat Blackjack with Surrender. You can surrender your hand and get half your stake back as long as the dealer doesn’t have Blackjack. The tables for this version are limited so getting a seat can be a problem at busy times. The game has Bet Behind though so you can play even if you don’t have a seat.
This is the RNG game that I mentioned. It’s a 7 seat game with Surrender but played against the computer, not a live dealer.
This is a version of Blackjack that is unique to Visionary iGaming and casinos using their software solution.
The is a more standard 7 seat game of live Blackjack with the additional option of being able to Surrender your hand during gameplay.
This is a 7 Seat RNG version of Blackjack – Not Live Dealer Blackjack.
There are two different playing interfaces for live blackjack. One is in full-screen HD mode and the other is displayed as a mixed-mode, with a smaller image of the live dealer and table. Both work as effectively as each other.
The standard settings are the same on both interfaces.
On the HD interface, you get to set some additional options like:
These are nice little touches but not that useful as I’d possibly want to double depending on what the dealer has and how my 8 or less was made up.
The animations are fun, but I personally don’t like them so have this switched off.
Blackjack Basic Strategy has been integrated into all the games so when it’s your turn to play you’ll be advised on the action you should take.
It’s not compulsory so you can choose to ignore the advice and play the hand in your own way.
Again, it’s a nice addition and particularly useful if you’re just starting to play the game and not quite sure how to play the hand.
The great thing with this solution is that if you disconnect and can’t play your hand after your bet has been accepted it will be playing for you using basic strategy.
You could say that the Visionary iGaming Live Blackjack solutions are the best out there.
Certainly, they are hard to beat with versions that allow Surrender and the unique Early Payout function.
They’ve got the basic rules right as well, as you’re able to double down on any hand value and you can double after a split which is quite rare.
The only downside for me is the European Rules on the Early Payout game and the fact that the cards are displayed clearly on the HD versions. There just seems to be too must glare for the lighting in the studio.
At busy times you may struggle to get a seat at the lower staked HD Blackjack table, but you can play Bet Behind.
