Blackjack is certainly one of the easiest and most enjoyably addictive casino games. The beguilingly simple premise of scoring as close to 21 as possible and beating the score of your opponent, belies a game that is full of subtle nuances, drama and a good deal of strategy.
One of the biggest issues with the game however has always been the problem of being dealt poor cards, or your opponent being dealt a very strong hand, or indeed twisting and receiving a card that does not improve your chances of winning and instead hands your opponent an advantage.
Now in Microgaming’s new release European Blackjack Redeal, the latest addition to their Gold Series of table games, this is no longer an issue thanks to the brand new ‘redeal’ component of the game, available to play in Blackjack Ballroom Casino.
As the name suggests, the redeal option allows players (for a small fee) to ‘redeal’ cards that have put themselves in with less chance of winning. Players can opt to have their own pocket cards redealt, their opponents cards redealt or an additional card they have received from the pack redealt up to five times in one session.
European Blackjack Redeal is played with two packs per game and includes features like splitting and doubling down. Both the player and dealer automatically stand if their cards total 17 or more.
In terms of gameplay, redeal offers something new even for seasoned Blackjack players. The option to redeal cards to improve a poor position really does help the user improve their chances of winning these hands markedly, especially allied to a strong blackjack strategy.
With top quality graphics and gentle ambient music in the background, European Blackjack Redeal is a welcome addition for any serious blackjack fan seeking to give themselves an advantage in this popular casino game.
