Blackjack by Pragmatic Play is a live dealer version of the iconic card game released in 2018. Thanks to this luxe game, live casino NZ players can immerse themselves in the classic experience of Hitting and Standing to beat a charming real dealer to 21 on desktop or mobile.

There are plenty of features in this live casino game that take things to the next level, such as side bets and being able to chat to the dealer and other players at the table.

Game Rules

Thanks to the use of standard rules, Blackjack Pragmatic Play is easy to play.

  • The player’s goal is to win with a hand of cards with a value of 21 or closer to 21 points than the dealer’s hand without busting (exceeding 21).
  • 8 decks of 52 cards each are in the shoe in this edition of live Blackjack.
  • After players have placed bets, the dealer will deal 2 cards to each player, one face-up and the other face-down.
  • The player can choose whether to play the hand as is (Stand), take another card (Hit), or make another move such as Doubling Down or Splitting.
  • The dealer must draw until 16 and stand on all 17s.
  • After players have made their moves, the dealer will compare their hand with the players’ hands to determine the winner.

When it comes to choosing the best strategy, the choice depends on the player’s skills and experience. With this being a standard live Blackjack game, players can use a simple Blackjack chart. They can also use variations of their favourite strategies, although the 8 decks in the shoe will make card counting difficult.

The different ways players can win include:

  • A natural Blackjack - their first 2 cards are worth 21 points.
  • 21 - a hand worth 21 after the player makes a move.

Players’ betting options include an opening bet, Hitting (taking another card), Doubling (doubling their bet and taking another card), and Splitting their original hand into 2 hands and taking more cards). They can also place Bet Behind bets as well as Perfect Pairs and 21+3 side bets.

This live Blackjack game has a wide betting range, with bets starting at $5.00 and going up to $5,000.00.

Betting Expert Techniques and Live Dealer Functions

Bet Behind and Side Bets are excellent options for Blackjack players in New Zealand who want to use expert techniques. In Blackjack by Pragmatic Play, the Bet Behind wager is a good option for players who are still new to the game. This betting option allows players to bet on another player’s hand – literally betting over their shoulder!

The Perfect Pairs side bet is a bit more complex. It’s a bet that the player’s first 2 cards will be a pair.  The 21+3 side bet is a bet that the player’s first 2 cards along with the dealer’s face-up card will form a winning Poker hand.

The game-specific buttons in this version of live casino Blackjack include the Bet Behind, Perfect Pairs, and 21+3 side bet buttons.
