The wombat says: Now then Wombat Fans, we all love a NetEnt slot – in fact some of our fave ever online casino games have been put together by those Scandi slot wizards. But now, like Microgaming with games such as Vegas Downtown Blackjack Gold, those game geniuses have turned their hand to table games, and this is where Blackjack Professional Series High Limit comes in. Is there nothing they can’t do???
This is a 3 -hand online blackjack tablegame with some sharp 3D looking graphics along with top notch animations and the cheeky little extra feature of a Double Jack sidebet. Even Mrs Wombat was impressed! Just an FYI: this game isn’t for the fainthearted. In fact, this high stakes version of BlackJack is probably designed for the high rollers amongst you when you are taking a break from the online baccarat– as it comes with a £25 minimum bet that goes all the way up to £500 per round. Let´s fire up the game and see what the cards have in store for us.
Blackjack Professional Series High Limit game is played with 4 standard decks (and as always, the jokers are taken out). That’s fewer decks than some other games like Blackjack Pro Monte Carlo Multihand which has 6 decks (phew that name’s a mouthful for a wombat with big teeth, I can tell you)
Before each round begins, the cards will get re-shuffled and the dealers will stand on 17s. You will receive 2 cards face up, and the aim of the game is to get a hand of 21, or at least closer to 21 than the dealer, without going bust.
You can choose to play 1 to 3 hands against the dealer and before the cards get dealt, plus you lucky players can also choose to place a side bet. The Double Jack sidebet, is played on the first two cards in a blackjack hand, and offers a maximum win of 100x the bet. Now that´s what this Wombat calls a sweet deal!
Next, pick your chip value and hit the rectangle in front of you on the green table to play your stake. Once you have your hand in front of you, you have the choice of the following actions, all designed to help up beat the dealer to 21:
Hit – receive another card.
Stand – refuse another card and stick with what you have
Double – double your stake if you’re happy with your hand.
Split – split two cards into two different hands for more chances to win
Insurance – Pay half your initial bet again to insure yourself against the dealer. You’ll win if the dealer lands a blackjack with two cards.
Players can adjust the gameplay, speed and sound effects of this slick NetEnt game.
Simply locate the control panel at the bottom right of the screen that is represented by a spanner symbol to get things moving along – especially if you´re an impatient card player just like this wombat.
Fans of Blackjack are going to love this NetEnt release. Blackjack Professional Series High Limit has some really great graphics and when combined the lounge-lizard piano soundtrack creates the perfect at-home casino atmosphere. The game play is very smooth, and the Double Jack side bet option is a lucrative addition to this very cool game. It’s definitely one to try!
