Today, Vibra Gaming brings us a classic and stylish blackjack experience with their new release simply titled Blackjack. This one is for those players who just want to relax with traditional rules and a smooth velvety table. However, for those who want to experiment a little, this Vibra Gaming title features three hands for betting.
The game has an excellent visual design with a coherent interface with clear-cut buttons and card positions. The betting range is from $0.1 to $1000 with an RPT value of 99.61%. Let us take a look at the game features, payouts, and strategies for this new Vibra Gaming Blackjack release.
As we mentioned, Vibra Gaming Blackjack follows the standard rules formula of our favorite card game. The additional innovation is the three-hand playing style where the player can place their bet three times. The dealer then deals cards to every betting position and to themselves, and then, the values are compared. The hands closest to 21 without exceeding it win.
The game is played with 8 standard 52-card decks and the dealer must stand on 17s. All face cards are traditionally worth 10. Splitting and doubling are available. If you reach 21 after splitting that is a regular win and not a Blackjack. The player is also given the option of an Insurance bet. This option is automatically offered if the dealer’s face-up card is an Ace. The player then has the option of placing the Insurance bet for a chance to mitigate their losses if the dealer scores a Blackjack.
Even though the rules follow the standard game flow, having three hands at once can open up many different betting strategies. Additionally, the player has much more options with three hands when approaching the game.
Parallel to the rules, the payouts are quite standardized as well. The player bets anywhere from $0.1 to $1000 for a chance to achieve that blackjack reward which is a 3:2 payout. The game further boosts payouts with the option to play with three hands simultaneously.
Furthermore, a standard win that includes the player having a closer value to 21 than the dealer, or the dealer busting, is a 1:1 payout. This is also the case with a split hand. This alternates a little with doubling down where the player is essentially getting a 2:1 payout. The general 99.61% return to player value proves that this payout format is quite stable and that is why we love blackjack.
Finally, the Insurance Bet is also present as we mentioned. The payout for the Insurance Bet is the familiar 2:1 ratio with a maximum wager of half the player’s original bet.
Since Vibra Gaming Blackjack follows the standard formula so well, the standard blackjack strategy can be applied. First off, we should all begin with the blackjack strategy chart as it shows the optimal way to play the game. This is not a 100% way to win the game every time, but it can help with decision-making. This is especially true for beginners.
Second, there are various card counting strategies like Hi-Lo or Omega II. They take some time to master and get right, but they can drastically improve your blackjack game. Though, it should be said that they are a bit difficult to pull off in an 8-deck game like Vibra Gaming’s Blackjack.
Still, Vibra Gaming has provided us with a stable and traditional blackjack experience. The rules are standardized and familiar along with the payouts. It is an overall relaxing and good-looking card game experience. Players who want an extra kick can engage in placing multiple bets on up to three different hands. This opens up a lot of decision-making opportunities which is the main fun of blackjack anyway.
