When it comes to live casino games, few are more beloved than blackjack. It is a stone cold classic, and any operator that does not include it in its library is not worth your time. Mr Green understands just how much players love blackjack and that’s why you will find plenty of options at our casino.
If you have not already, you should definitely check out Live Blackjack. Live casino games offer an exhilarating new take on all of your favorites and they are all available to play from the comfort of your own home. Rather than competing against a random number generator, Live Blackjack matches you with a real, experienced casino dealer, via high quality cameras and microphones.
This experience more closely replicates what it is like to play at a brick and mortar casino, so it is no surprise it is such a hit with players. That is not the only advantage to Live Blackjack either. We also keep things sociable with our excellent live chat feature and if you ever need technical support, Mr Green is only too happy to help. Simply put, if you are a blackjack fan, Live Blackjack is the perfect game for you.
The obvious difference between Live Blackjack and its video counterpart is that the former uses a real life dealer, as opposed to a hidden algorithm. That is not the only area in which the two experiences differ though.
Normal online casino games utilize a random number generator. In the case of Blackjack, the computer uses this to select virtual cards from a deck. In stark contrast, live dealer games are controlled by a dealer in a television studio that resembles a real life casino. Therefore, when you are playing Live Blackjack and other similar games, you will actually be able to see the cards being drawn from a shoe. They are also bigger than normal to help players recognize them easily.
When enjoying normal online casino games some players can often miss the buzz of bustling, land-based casinos. Users who feel this way are likely to enjoy live casino games. This is because they allow you to chat with the dealer while you play. What’s more, when playing Live Blackjack at Mr Green, you will not only be able to interact with the dealer but also the other players on your table.
There’s nothing worse than having the fun of your live casino session interrupted by technical difficulties. Fortunately, if there is ever this problem while you are playing at Mr Green, you will be able to contact us via the live chat immediately. Our friendly team of support staff work around the clock and are committed to providing a seamless experience.
Not only does Mr Green have a wide selection of Blackjack games, we also boast numerous Live Blackjack options. With buy-in limits and game types to suit every need, we are proud to offer one of the most varied experiences on the market. Of course, before diving in, make sure you check out the rules of each table.
No expense is spared in the production of our live casino. We stream the action via several high definition cameras and hi-fi microphones placed around the table. This means that you never miss a single second of the action. Put simply, there is no better way to replicate the sights and sounds of a land-based casino from the comfort of your own home.
As Live Blackjack is so similar to the real thing, you should be able to jump straight onto a table if you have any experience of playing the game in the past. However, if you have never experienced Blackjack, let us give you a basic rundown of how to play.
Of course, the specifics will vary ever so slightly, depending on which variant you are playing, but for the most part things will be largely the same. The developers of our Live Blackjack offering – Evolution Gaming – make it extremely easy to understand.
Your very first step should be finding a table with space before then selecting your initial stake. Minimum bets will vary from game to game, so make sure you check out the rules before making your decision. After the other players on your table have similarly placed their bets, the game will start.
What you are trying to do in Blackjack is beat the dealer by getting closer to 21 than them, without going over. First up, all players will receive two cards. The dealer will get the same, one face up, one face down. If you have received an Ace and a jack, queen, king or 10, you win at odds of 3/2.
If not, you have three options: stand, split, double down or hit. Standing is essentially sticking with what you have. After doing this, your turn passes to the next player. Hitting will see you receive another card. However, if you go over 21 you will lose your stake.
Doubling down can only be performed on your first turn. After receiving your first two cards you can double your bet, before receiving one more card only. Choosing to do this prevents you from hitting on your second turn, even if you are below 21.
Splitting, meanwhile, can only be done when you receive a pair in your initial hand. In this case, you can split your hand to create two new ones for which you then receive one more card each.
At the end of a game of Live Blackjack, players who get closer to 21 than the dealer without going bust are winners.
Live Blackjack players are spoilt for choice at Mr Green. Not only do we possess classic games we also possess more modern experiences to help keep things fresh and interesting.
Most of the tables support side betting with Perfect Pairs, 21+3 and many more options available. Similarly, if you are waiting for a place to open up at a particular table you can still get involved in the fun by using our Bet Behind feature. This allows you to wager on the outcomes of another players’ hand.
Your personal needs will very much affect which Live Blackjack experience you like best, but here are some of our most popular variants:
