Vegas Downtown Blackjack Gold

Microgaming is ready with the mobile version of the Vegas Downtown Blackjack Gold game. A hole card game, it is an American version of the Blackjack game. Here the Dealer gets to look at his hole card to check whether it results in a Blackjack.

The main deviation between this version and the other American versions of the Blackjack is that the Dealer always has to hit on a soft 17.

User friendly interface and great looks rules Vegas Downtown Blackjack Gold game

The mobile version of the Vegas Downtown Blackjack is optimised to be compatible with all the major mobile devices and tablets. Big, user friendly interface with easy navigation operations are the strong point of this casino game.

As the Microgaming Gold series name implies, the graphic and animations are top class with crisp and clean design layout. The chips, cards, online game rules and even the betting options are available onscreen with simple clicks. There are both the single hand and multi hand (up to 5 hands) version of the Gold series. Both of them have the same game rules and is played with 2 standard decks, which means lowering the house edge considerably.

Beating the Dealer at his own game

The final winning hand is got when you beat the Dealer’s hand by getting a total of 21 or staying under it. It is a Bust if the final total is over 21 and you lose to the Dealer. It’s a tie or push when both you and the Dealer have the same total. The bet amount is returned back to the player.

Whether it is a single or Multihand version, both follow the same game rules. The Ace is counted as 1 or 11, the Face cards (J, Q and K) are counted as 10 and the rest are taken at their numbered values.

You can Hit, Stand, take Insurance or Double Down based on the card total. Blackjack pays 3:2, insurance pays 2:1
