The wombat says: Premier Multi Hand Blackjack comes to you from those Isle of Man slot wizards Microgaming – those gurus behind premium table games like Live Baccarat– and what a delight it is, too. Part of the Premier series, this variant is characterised by immersive casino experiences and some luxury gaming options. Plus, of course, some interesting Blackjack rules and a solid betting range. As big fans of Multi-hand we couldn’t wait to get to the table!
Look and Feel
Microgaming has really come up with the goods in the graphics department here, we’d say it hits the heights of our Mike Tyson roulette game from Inspired Entertainment.
Overall the animations are slick and 3D realistic, then there are lots of cool little details that caught this wombat’s eye like the reflections of the chips on the surface of the shiny tray, and the shadows the card shoe casts on the table! There are also plenty of customisable display options so you can take control of how you want your Blackjack to look. Nice work!
Premier Blackjack Game Play
And there’s more good news Wombat fans. Premier Blackjack Multi-Hand Gold is playable from a mere £1 per hand, but high rollers don’t need to panic as the max bet per hand is £200 meaning there’s something for everyone. Multi hand Premier Blackjack Golduses 2 normal decks of 52 cards and players can play up to 5 hands at a time – well it is called Multihand after all…
Rules follow a standard European Blackjack variant . The dealer on this online blackjack game draws to 16 and must stand on all totals of 17. You can double down only on 9, 10, and 11. Splitting is allowed but only once, so that you can make up to 2 hands from a pair (but only on identical pairs of ten-value cards) – and doubling down isn’t allowed after a split. Your payouts are the same as in classic Blackjack with 3:2 for a Blackjack, 2:1 for insurance wins.
There are also 4 different game modes to choose from, which is a very nice touch! Each one offers a something different to us Blackjack fans:
Multihand – This is the game you are currently playing with two decks in play, it also allows players to split and double as often as they please.
Multihand Bonus – The rules are the same as the above mode, with two decks in play, but there is an extra bonus side bet on each hand which spices things up nicely. We do love a side bet!
High Streak – This is the same as the Multihand Bonus mode but with an additional bet on a winning streak. Consecutive winning hands are the key to making the most of this cheeky little version
Hi-Lo – In this game you place a side bet on the first two cards that are dealt (either higher or lower or equal to 13), which means you can win at either Blackjack or the Hi or Low game, or perhaps even both!
If you’re looking to play Blackjack online in a super realistic setting then look no further than Premier Blackjack Multi Hand. It has all the buzz and slick play of a live studio game, but without the waiting around for other players… It’s a multi-hand joy to behold!
