Super Stake Blackjack Revealed
Stakelogic has revealed its latest innovative game, Super Stake Blackjack.
The game is based on the standard American Rules Blackjack, and it’s presented on a scalable table where unlimited players can play the same hand.
The Super Stake element is a 50% fee levied each game to take advantage of multiplier cards.
Six Golden Cards are selected at the start of a game round, with multipliers between 2x to 30x assigned to them. If a player receives these in a winning hand, his initial stake is multiplied by the value on the cards, up to a maximum of 60x.
Players are given a choice to Split, No Split, Double or No Double when the cards are initially dealt, while Hit and Stands are automatically made according to the rules of Basic Strategy.
There are four side bets included:
- Golden Pairs – This pays if the players have been dealt a pair.
- 3 – which pays for a three-card combination with the dealer’s first card.
- Golden 3 pays when the dealer’s upcard and the player’s first two cards form a three-card poker hand.
- Buzz-T pays when the dealer busts his hand.
Richard Walker, Head of Live at Stakelogic, said:
“Blackjack is a live casino staple, but with Super Stake Blackjack, we have taken the player experience to a whole new level. This means that players can enjoy the core blackjack experience while interacting with the dealer and take advantage of amplified big-win potential.
The addition of not one, not two, but four side bets make this a varied and compelling live blackjack title that will appeal to all player types from seasoned blackjackers to those trying to beat the dealer for the very first time.”
I’m interested to see how this game plays when it’s released.
Several live casino providers have released versions of Blackjack with Multipliers, and none gives players a great playing experience.
Stakelogic has included a couple of innovations in this game, aimed mainly at inexperienced players – which immediately rings alarm bells for me.
Inexperienced Players + Multipliers = lots of profit for the casino. Before a player knows what’s happening, the 50% fee on top of his bet and a lack of multipliers will have them busting out before they know what’s hit them.
Experienced players will likely avoid this game because of the poor long-term returns.
Of course, I could be wrong, and the game’s entertainment value may well compensate for the poor return a player is likely to get.
I’ll reserve full judgement until I play and review the game after it’s been launched.
The official launch date is currently unknown.
