Playtech Powered Live Casinos Now Featuring 21+3 BlackjackPublished September 4, 2016 by Ivan P
A leading online gaming software supplier Playtech introduces 21+3 Blackjack side bet feature to their virtual live casino games.
One of the leading companies providing online gaming software Playtech has launched new 21+3 blackjack side bet feature across live virtual casinos featuring their software. The option will make live Blackjack games even more exciting, bringing an element of poker to Blackjack tables.
What is Blackjack 21+3 Side Bet?
For those unfamiliar with the feature, 21+3 side bet in Blackjack combines player's two first cards with the dealer's up-card to form standard poker hands, like trips, straights and flushes. Payouts are made according to the payout table, with the least likely combinations, like royal flushes and suited three of a kind, paying the best odds.
The biggest payout a player can expect to receive with the 21+3 Blackjack side bet is 100:1, when making trips with three cards of the same suit, e.g. three Kings of Clubs.
Playtech to Create Crossover Between Poker and Blackjack
The new feature available at Playtech powered casinos like Dafabet, 777, and Winner Casino, brings an additional element to traditional live Blackjack games, making them more exciting and appealing to Blackjack and poker players alike.
Combining elements from both games and providing a chance to win big on any individual bet adds a whole new dimension to the game which usually pays only moderate amounts to winners.
According to Kevin Kilminster, Head of Live Casino Innovation at Playtech, the 21+3 Blackjack side bet should not only appeal to poker and Blackjack players but it also stands to attract new players who haven't played the game before.
The side bet increases players' winning odds as it is completely independent of the base hand results. The 21+3 side bet is paid regardless of whether you win, push, or bust on the base hand.
Innovation as Key to Success
Although already a leader in the online gambling software market, providing other games like Baccarat, Casino Hold'em, and more, Playtech tries to stay ahead of the competition constantly introducing various innovations to their offer.
Adding 21+3 side bet to their traditional Blackjack offering should certainly increase game's popularity with the general player base.
