The wombat says: Here at Wombat Towers, we’ve decided the thing we like best about blackjack is that unlike roulette and slots, this game isn’t all about luck. Your wins (and sometimes your losses, too) are determined by the decisions that you make, meaning you actually need to use a bit of strategy to decide whether you should hit, stand, split or double.
As the name suggests, this Blackjack variant brought to us from NetEnt is for the people who do not want spend a loads of cash, but are still looking for a seamless Live Blackjack experience with a dealer. And unlike other online variants, in this game you really will be playing against a live dealer instead of a computer.
Yes, Live Blackjack Common Draw Low Limit has a professional table setup in a studio, just like in the real casino. The cards used are real too, and so is the dealer who deals them. And one more thing, this cheeky little game has an added bonus – it’s completely playable on your mobile device too! Happy days.
Look and Feel
This game features a bright interface and great graphics, and best of all the game play is very smooth indeed. Quite often in live Blackjack there can be a whole load of waiting around, but NetEnt have managed to tackle this problem. Players can play their hands at the same time, and whenever they want – which makes us a bunch of cheerful wombats.
Live Blackjack Common Draw Low Limit is played with the same basic rules of standard Blackjack. 2 cards are dealt each to the player and the dealer. Your aim is to score a total of 21 points, or a point value closer to 21 than the dealer. If you manage to do so, you will win the hand with a 1:1 payout on your bet. However, if the value is 21 from the first two cards itself, it is a blackjack hand and your payout then will be 3:2 your total bet. If the dealer beats your hand or gets a Blackjack, sadly you’ll lose.
Seeing as this this is a low roller variant of blackjack the bets start from as low as £1 per hand and go up to £100. As soon as you have placed your bet, you just click on the ‘Deal Option’ the dealer will draw the cards. Next, you can either ‘hit’ your card (and receive another) or ‘stand’ with it. There are also other options for your playing pleasure Wombat Fans, that include the ‘double bet’ option and the ‘split’ option.
Live Blackjack Common Draw Low Limit also has a live chat option, where you can interact with the other players at the table. We find it’s a great way to exchange ideas, knowledge and info on the game.
All in all, NetEnt’s Live Blackjack Common Draw Low Limit does what it set out to do; speeding up the Live Blackjack game playing experience and delivering affordable wager options. The live aspect does add a certain fizz to the whole vibe, and we can’t fault the graphics.
