Fantastic New Blackjack Games at NetBet

blackjack terms & rules

Here at NetBet online casino UK, we keep the dream of blackjack and classic table games alive for our players. While card and table games are not nearly as popular as slots, online blackjack has been revolutionized with the addition of live blackjack games. RNG variants are getting a lot of attention from our players too, especially due to the fact you can play them for free. If you’re looking for a bit of practice, here are the best new blackjack games available at NetBet casino.

Blackjack Royal Pairs

Classic blackjack is always a popular option for fans of the game. However, there’s no question that the addition of side bets made it all the more entertaining. Royal Pairs is one of the top among them, and you can see it in action in iSoftBet’s Blackjack Royal Pairs. Compared to other classic variants of blackjack, this one has a much better paytable. That’s mostly due to the Royal Pairs side bet, while the base game operates under standard blackjack rules. It’s played with 8 standard 52-card decks and the goal remains the same – beat the dealer to a count of 21 before he gets there.

The dealer stops on a soft 17 and you also get insurance at a payout of 2:1. The dealer won’t check for a blackjack if his face-up card is a ten-value or an Ace. You can double down on any 2-card hand and split cards of equal value. The real surprise is the Royal Pairs jackpot which pays a whopping 150:1 regardless of the round result when you get two Aces of the same suit. The payout is reduced to 40:1 for Aces of different suits or an unsuited royal pair (Jacks, Queens, Kings) which pays 10:1.

European Blackjack Multihand

European Blackjack Multihand is a Play’n GO title where you can play more than one hand simultaneously. Don’t be confused about the European moniker. This is still classic blackjack with slightly altered rules that mostly apple to double downs and splits. It plays with 5 52-card decks instead of 8. In short, you can double down on an initial pair that totals 9, 10, or 11. In this case, you’ll get one card and then your hand will stand. Doubling down is not possible after a split, and can only be done once per hand.

If you want to split hands, you can only do it on cards that are identical. The game also comes with the insurance side bet which pays the standard 2:1. The dealer stands on all 17s instead of a soft one only. However, the most important feature of them all is the ability to play up to 5 hands at the same time. It’s a much different and more challenging action than other variant, but that’s where the fun lies.
