The first is classic casino Blackjack with standard international rules played on a regular table that accommodates up to 7 players.

The second version is called Blackjack Party and is designed for players who are looking for a less intense game where the aim is to have as much fun as possible. With Blackjack Party, the table limits are set much lower and a second game host joins the table to keep the vibe going. Party-like music is also streamed into the casino studio to keep the mood light and the players buzzing. This Live Dealer Blackjack game is a great alternative for anyone looking for a unique card playing experience where strategy can still be implemented, but having a rollicking good time is part of the package too!
