Why Play Microgaming European Blackjack GOLD
Microgaming European Blackjack GOLD adds a little pizzazz to an old favorite casino table game. Here’s a quick look at the simple rules. Two decks of 52 standard playing cards are used in this Blackjack variant. The decks are shuffled before every round. The dealer must stand on 17, even soft 17. The player must try to assemble a hand worth 21 points or less that will beat the dealer’s, either because his hand has a lower value than the players or because he busts, going over the 21 point total. In either of these cases, the player wins and receives payouts according to the value of the hand he is holding.
Rules of the Game
The players are permitted to split pairs only once. A pair of aces may be split and the player may draw one more card. If it is a 10, the hand is not counted as Blackjack, but only 21 (which beats 20, but loses to a dealer Blackjack). Players may double only if their first two cards are worth a total of 9, 10 or 11, or after they split. No surrender is allowed.
Game Play Tips
Novices should be aware that there is a strategy chart available. This chart will help them to decide on their next move in any Microgaming European Blackjack GOLD game. The chart has precise recommendations as to whether the player should stand, hit, double or split, based on every possible, and players can access it at any point during a game. In general: Always draw with a hand of 11 or less. For a hand of 12 to 16, the decision whether to draw will depend on what card the dealer is showing. For a hand of 17 to 20, draw only with soft 17 or 18.
