European Blackjack Gold
The European Blackjack Gold Series was developed by Microgaming to give a very realistic look and feel to this classic table game. There are a number of variations in the European Blackjack Gold series to allow players to add some extra intrigue to the classic game of “21”.
Variations in the European Blackjack Gold Series
The Hi Lo 13 European Blackjack Gold game is based on the very popular Over and Under 13 game. This is a single hand game, played with two decks. It does allow for optional side bets, as long as they conform to European rules. The three side bet options revolve around whether the first two cards will be greater than, equal to, or less than 13. Players can bet up to 25.00 on these side bets.
In the High Streak European Blackjack Gold variations, the basic game is enhanced by giving players the option to make a High Streak side bet. This is triggered when the player wins in the standard game. The first High Streak win pays 1:1, the second 2:1, the third 5:1, and the fourth a whopping 10:1. These High Streak wins must be consecutive.
In the Multi Hand Perfect Pair variation of the European Blackjack Gold series, players can choose from three possible side bets: Perfect Pair, which is a pair with the same suit or value; Coloured Pair, where the two cards have the same colour and value; or a Mixed Pair, where the suits are different but the value is the same. This variation is played with two decks per hand, and the dealer is compelled to stand on 17.
The Blackjack Gold Series boasts superb graphics, realistic table-feel, background music to set the mood and animated chip selectors. The controls are clear, and there’s a wide chip range to choose from, to please all players from the most moderate to casino high-rollers. Some also allow for mixed-chip stacks.
