Playtech’s Unlimited Blackjack Game Variant

When accessing Playtech’s live online casino games you are going to come across a brand new game on offer and this is their Unlimited Blackjack game, now this new variant has some major differences in place in regards to the way it is played and as such it is important you fully understand the unique structure of this game before you consider giving it a try online.

The game is called Unlimited Blackjack for a reason, and that reason is that unlike on standard live dealer blackjack games there is no maximum number of players that can join any single table, and another major difference is that you can play more than one hand per game.

You are able to not only play up to five different hands per game of Unlimited Blackjack dealt, but the game also comes with an optional side bet option. This side bet option is a Perfect Pairs side bet and you can place this on one or more hands that you have chosen to play per game.

When playing Unlimited Blackjack as there are no limits on the number of players sitting at that table playing each hand, then you need to be aware of several different aspects of how the game will unfold.

If you are playing any one hand and choose to Stand your hand, then your hand will Stand, however as another player playing the same hand as yourself may choose to Hit that hand then an additional card will be dealt to that hand, however that additional card will not have an effect on your two cards, so if that other player busts by Hitting the hand, your hand will not bust.

This same type of game play rule is also in place in regards to Doubling Down, if you do not choose to Double Down then should another player take this option any additional card dealt out to the hand you and he/she are playing will not have an effect on your hand which has not been Doubled Down.

Also in regards to Splitting a hand, Playtech’s Unlimited Blackjack game has attached to it an Optimal Strategy table and on this table will be a listing of certain hand combinations that when dealt out as a Pair will allow the Dealer to offer you a Split betting option.

Should one of these Pair hands be dealt out to you then you are only able to Split those hands or Fold your hand, you are not able to Stand or Hit them.

If one of the Pair hand combinations that do offer the Split or Fold betting option be dealt out on any single hand you are playing and you opt to Fold that hand then your stake will be returned to you less a 20% commission, and you will not be able to take part in that hand any further.

Should you decide to take the Split option on any Pair offering this betting move, then you will, as standard, be required to place another stake onto the table to cover the new hand that is formed and can then continue playing as normal by either Hitting, Standing or Doubling Down on the two separate hands formed.
