Ezugi has added Unlimited Blackjack with Auto Splits to their selection of live games.
The game, developed by Stephen Au Yeung is based on standard Blackjack.
It’s played to Vegas Rules with an 8 deck shoe that’s shuffled when 50% of it has been used.
The dealer deals one player hand that multiple players can make decisions on.
Other players decisions do not affect your playing decisions.
The players hand is automatically split if it’s dealt as 2-2, 3-3, 6-6, 7-7, 8-8 or A-A.
You get the choice of playing one or both hands. If you play both your bet is doubled.
Ezugi transmits the games from multiple studio locations and in multiple languages, giving customers and players a real choice.
You can try out Unlimited Blackjack with Auto Splits at any Ezugi Live Casino.
As Unlimited Blackjack games go, this is one of the best ones I’ve come across.
Most other versions of this one to many game are dealt from a Shufflemaster dealing shoe, which means you get a fresh shoe at the start of each hand.
This may be convinient for the operator as it speeds up the hands per hour, but it sucks from a players perspective.
Also the game is normally played to European Rules rather than the more favoured “Vegas” variation.
What puts the icing on the cake is the ability to Double Down on splits. You can’t do that anywhere else.
The drawback with this game is that multiple players are betting on the same hand.
While they have no influence on what you do with your hand they can have an adverse influence on the outcome of the hand.
I’ve seen silly players taking cards when they shouldn’t and splitting 10’s when they shouldn’t.
For that reason I tend to steer away from these types of games and prefer to play my online Blackjack on a 7 Seat table.
I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.
Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?
Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?
Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?
Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?
Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?
Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?
After all that, would I play there regularly?
