As the company promised, new releases from Evolution Gaming keep rocking the live casino market.
Following the launch of unique First Person Football Studio, the Latvian live gaming giant is setting Power Blackjack in motion.
We have covered the new game in detail in our How to Play Power Blackjack article. However, if you need a brief introduction and overview of the game, keep reading.
Blackjack, but Better
Evolution Gaming first showcased Power Blackjack at this year’s ICE gaming event. Alongside this release, Evolution’s Crazy Time, Live Craps and First Person Baccarat debuted.
However, when Power Blackjack made an appearance, the audience was in amazement. This blackjack variant is something brand new in the world of the famous Twenty-One.
In contrast to its predecessors, Power Blackjack arrived with the lack of 9s and 10s. That made creating high-denomination combinations more complex. But payers have loved it.
Regarding other rules, the game is simple. You just need to get to as close to 21 as possible. If the sum of the cards you’re holding is 21, we call this combo a natural blackjack. This hand pays at 3 to 2.
What’s New in Power Blackjack?
The main moves you can make in this blackjack game include Hit, Stand, Double and Split. The latter two decisions can be made in specific scenarios only. However, you can Hit or Stand after any round. What’s more, Evolution provided a blackjack chart with the best recommendations for your gameplay.
So you can use that one to help you out in blackjack.
Other than removing all nines and tens from the shoe, Evolution delivered more novelty.
There are 4 side bets in Power Blackjack – Hot 3, 21+3, Any Pair and Bust it.
Power Blackjack, whi his similar to the developer’s Infinite Blackjack, takes place in that exact studio. You’ll see infinity symbols on the walls, in the game logo and even on the table. That’s Evolution’s Infinite Platform.
Todd Haushalter, CPO at Evolution Gaming, talked passionately about the game. As a player himself, Mr. Haushalter shared the enthusiasm of the thousands of ICE 2020 visitors.
“With this game the mission was to give players more of what they love about Blackjack without changing the underlying gameplay. We know that players love classic Blackjack, but we are always looking for new ways to keep it fresh. Creating a version where players can triple and quadruple down, instead of just double down, felt like a great way to do this.”
