Have you ever wanted to hit the tables while on the bus or while waiting for a movie to start? You’ve probably felt the frustration of having an app for everything but your favorite slots and table games. Good thing European Blackjack is almost here. On May 19, 2019, when Switch Studios releases the game, your online table experience will be forever changed. Read on to find out how.
Fit To Whatever Screen You Need
With Switch Studios’ expertise in adaptive gaming, you should have never doubted that this game would be perfect for you to use on any of your screens. But just in case you need proof that your gameplay will be adapted to your devices, European Blackjack has a dynamic scaling feature. If you’re on your phone or another iOS device, you can play in either portrait mode or landscape. Prefer to play at home? The desktop version is extra-large for your big screen.
How Much To Play
Switch Studios wants to make sure you can hit the tables at whatever price point feels right to you. That’s why they’ve introduced betting starting at $1.00. If you’d like to start your play with just a dollar in your pocket, that’s alright at European Blackjack. But if $200 feels more comfortable in your hand, you can win even bigger. That’s where bet limits cap off. And you might as well play it big with this game, since volatility is so low. Return to player comes in at 99.6%, and hit rate is a sky-high 43.56%. That means the blackjack gods are on your side, and there’s no reason not to have some fun.
When you’ve played online blackjack before, have you ever been dealt two cards of similar values? Not all table video games allow you to split that hand, but European Blackjack does. Say your hand includes three Fives, two Aces, a Three, and a Two of mixed Hearts and Spades. The dealer, on the other hand, has a Jack of Clubs and a Queen of Hearts. You could win twice by splitting your hand, and European Blackjack will show you how.
Play For All
When they started out developing this game, Switch Studios wanted to appeal to every player out there. That’s why they made the screen so adaptable, but it’s also the reasoning behind a whole set of new features. Along with Split Hands, other cool features include Double Down, Turbo Mode and Left Hand Mode. Players of all preferences will love exploring these new features on the blue felt of European Blackjack. Double Down lets you double your bets and get an additional card if two in your hand total 9, 10, or 11. Turbo Mode is an enhancement feature that quickens the pace of cards dealt in and cleared. Left Hand Mode mirrors action buttons for your ease. Action buttons include Deal/Clear, Hit/Stand, Split/Double, and Yes/No.
Want Some Insurance?
Wait to see what the dealer puts down first. If it’s an Ace, you’ll get a new choice. European Blackjack features an Insurance Bet function, which lets you place a separate side bet against the dealer. This option is automatically offered when the dealer’s first card is an Ace and returns 2 to 1 on your bet if you win.
The Dealer And The Bet
Before you place your side bet, you should understand why insurance even exists in the game of blackjack. Basically, if the dealer plays an Ace first, you know they’ll get to 21 more quickly. That’s a bummer for you, so to keep things interesting, insurance helps you win even if the dealer scores blackjack. You should know that the dealer has blackjack less than a third of the time on average, so insurance bets often lose. But it can still be smart to take the side bet. Some players have a goal of reducing variation during play, so they often take the bet. And if you’re counting cards, there are lots of reasons to take the bet. If you’re just looking to have fun, you might as well. The “insurance” bet, contrary to its name, keeps things interesting.
Prepare To Play
With these smart features and the immersive gaming experience, you won’t be able to stop playing European Blackjack once you get started. This simple game will change your online experience. Mark your calendar for May 19. It’s coming soon.
