Playtech Live Blackjack with Cashback is based on its popular RNG Blackjack game, which has been modified to appeal to live casino players.
Playtech is not the first operator to offer a cashback facility, but it is the only tier one live casino operator offering a game with this facility.
Quite often this game is referred to Blackjack with Early payout or Blackjack Surrender – the difference being when you can take the decision to cash out.
The table is based on the AllBets Blackack table, which allows an unlimited number of players to play the same hand while allowing each to play as if the hand is their own.
Like AllBets Blackjack there are 6 optional side bets, 21+3, Buster Blackjack, Dealer Pair, Lucky Lucky, Player Pair and Top 3.
The Cashback feature is offered as one of the playing options during each game round, so in addition to being able to Hit, Stand, Double or Split, you’re also able to take the Cashback.
If the player has split a hand – cashback is offered as an option on both hands.
Edo Haitin, CEO, Playtech Live, commented:
“The development of Cashback Blackjack Live has been a truly collaborative effort and takes our partnership with Stoiximan/Betano to a new level. Stoiximan/Betano is already one of the leading operators in the Greek market, and we’re committed to working closely with them to not only build on this position but also extend that success into further territories.
“Thanks to a fantastic initiative from our friends at Stoiximan/Betano group and a great effort from the development teams on both sides, we’ve been able to deliver a dynamic new experience for players in record time, which emphasizes our strategy of equipping our partners with scalable dedicated solutions while still providing players with a fun and personal game experience. The Cashback concept is of course well-established in Sports betting, so we’re very interested to see how players will respond to it in a Live Casino setting, where there’s interaction with a dealer and other players. We’re confident players will find Cashback Blackjack Live a highly engaging experience”.
Christos Mavridis, Live Casino Manager at Stoiximan/Betano added:
“Product innovation, wide game offer and optimum customer experience have always been among our priorities at Stoiximan/Betano. We’ve already seen a fantastic response to Cashback Blackjack as an RNG game, so we are very much looking forward to delivering a new experience for our players with the first Live version. Having worked closely with Playtech for some time now, we were well aware of their track record in producing innovative new content and game variants. As such, we felt they were the ideal partner for the development of Cashback Blackjack Live, and we’re sure our players will be just as impressed with the finished product as we are”.
At the time of this press release the game is only available at Stoiximan/Betano, but it’s sure to become available to the whole of the Playtech Live Casino network.
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?
