Playtech brings us a modern-looking, very well designed and presented rendition of the classical Blackjack card game, setting a high bar for vanilla Blackjack games. The feature has a pleasant visual style, including a changeable color scheme, nice sounds and smooth animations. The gameplay is also above par, sporting a Rebet and Deal button to ease mechanical hand-processing, and significantly bump up comfort levels.
Playtech’s game largely plays by Vegas Strip rules, while no re-splitting is allowed. You have at your disposal the double option, while insurance, which lets you bet for a dealer Blackjack, pays double!
Allowed bets range from €5 to €300, on coins of €0.01 to €100, while total bet at the end of the round can reach as much as €1 200!
What makes Playtech Blackjack Pro so popular among players is the fact that it features a huge player advantage, not to mention it is said to be one of the most popular Last Vegas Strip variations.
The game is played with one deck of cards and in case the player has an effective winning strategy, the house edge can be greatly reduced. Experienced players should have already noticed that in such cases, when the house edge is negligible, the payout is reduced or some rules are altered. However, none of these is applicable to Blackjack Pro, which is yet another convincing reason for its popularity.
Yet, you have to be familiar with some details before you start playing. First of all, you are not allowed to use a hands re-splitting option. In case you double down when dealer’s first card is an Ace and the dealer has a Blackjack, you lose both bets.
You lose your original bet and lose the Double Down when the first card of the dealer is 10 and they get Blackjack after turning the second card face up.
