21 Duel Blackjack21 Duel Blackjack Multihand is a blackjack game created by Playtech and featured in various different online casinos.

The game comes with a wide range of betting options and uses chips in five denominations – $1, $5, $10, $25, and $100.

You can, naturally, place any combination of chips that you see fit.

Gaming Experience

21 Duel Blackjack Multihand is an interesting game to be sure and one that comes with some unique features. For one, it implements something rarely seen in blackjack – community cards. This type of game element is normally reserved for poker titles, but it makes surprisingly good use of it during regular play. Two community cards will be dealt on the table and the dealer and the player can use them to form the best possible combination.

Other than that, the experience is still quite the same as traditional blackjack, albeit with some crucial options missing. There are is no option to take insurance whenever the dealer draws an Ace, nor can you surrender when your hand is bad. You are not allowed to split a hand of two cards of identical value or to increase your bet by doubling down. There are 6 packs of cards into the shoe, which while not the best is better than 8. The worst aspect of this game is probably the fact that hitting a blackjack will only pay even money. At traditional blackjack this hand would pay 3:2 or in some other iterations 6:5, but the 1:1 payout is unheard of and it does not do the game any favors. Still, 21 Duel Blackjack Multihand has an excellent return-to-player percentage of around 98%, which in turn means that the game comes with a house edge of ~2%. This is not the best where blackjack is concerned, but out of all casino games, it still takes a very high spot on the list.

Additional Features

21 Duel Blackjack Multihand also features an extra side bet called the 2 Up Side Bet. Whenever you place this wager, you bet that the community cards and those in your hand will form a pair or a three-of-a-kind combination. A pair of the same card will reward you with a 3:1 payout, while the three of a kind will instead give you a massive 20:1. While this bet gives you the chance for very high payouts, it also comes with an average return ratio of around 93%. This means that it is not such a good deal as it may initially sound.

Naturally, we should not overlook the Multihand feature, as it has a place in the game’s title. It is quite simple in nature; it allows you to play with more than one hand at once. Each hand is independent of the other and separate bets are placed for each. It does not have any specific advantages or disadvantages, but it does let you play more hands per hours and to move more money between you and the casino.

Conclusion

21 Duel Blackjack Multihand is an interesting game that incorporates elements of poker into traditional blackjack at the cost of some key features. This can be a refreshing change of pace, but it can also disrupt the style of play that you may have grown accustomed to. The ability to choose a community card does give you a certain amount of control over the game, but not as much to sacrifice the ability to split and double, among others. We feel that this game appeals to a certain kind of demographic and it is not meant for a broad user base. It is best advised to try out the game in free mode before committing any real money to it.
