Evolution Blackjack

Kiwi players who enjoy the suspense and thrill of playing 21 have come to the right place! JackpotCity Casino puts world-famous Evolution Blackjack games in easy reach, offering live casino NZ players opportunities to beat dealers to win impressive payouts. Our collection includes an array of options, from live Blackjack games that offer the classic experience to modern variants with special features that take things to the next level.

The Game Rules of Evolution Blackjack

Players in New Zealand will find a dazzling variety of Evolution Blackjack options at our live casino. However, this can seem daunting if they’ve never played 21 before. The good news is that the basic rules apply to all the Blackjack casino games available at our site. Take a closer look at those rules:

  • Most games are played with a shoe containing 8 decks of 52 standard playing cards each.
  • Card values: Aces are worth 1 or 11, cards 2-10 are worth their face value, and Jacks, Queens, and Kings are worth 10 points.
  • The goal of live Blackjack is to beat the dealer with a hand worth 21 points or as close to that score as possible without exceeding it (busting).
  • Players place an opening bet and are dealt 2 face-up cards.
  • The dealer receives 1 face-up card and 1 face-down card.
  • The dealer can peek for Blackjack if their face-up card is an Ace.
  • Evolution Blackjack players in New Zealand can determine which moves to make, such as:
  • Hitting (taking another card)
  • Standing (playing their initial hand)
  • Splitting (splitting the initial hand and taking more cards to create 2 new hands)
  • Doubling Down (doubling their initial bet and taking another card)
  • The Blackjack casino dealer will turn over their face-down card, compare scores, and announce the winner.
  • Any payouts are made.

As our live Blackjack games all take the traditional rules as their foundation, Kiwi players can use a variety of strategies when playing the game. Whether players prefer using a betting system such as Labouchere or Martingale, strategy charts, or strategies they’ve created themselves, it’s possible to use them when playing the game. When deciding which strategy would be best, live casino players should remember to avoid any strategy that involves card counting, as the 8 decks in the Evolution Blackjack shoe make it almost impossible to count cards.

Expert Betting Techniques and Live Dealer Functions

Some of the variants in the Evolution Blackjack portfolio include side bets and special features that let players use expert betting techniques during their gaming sessions. Among the live Blackjack game side bets players can place after placing their initial bet are:

  • Perfect Pairs
  • 21+3
  • Any Pair
  • Hot 3
  • Bust It

Pair side bets win when the Blackjack casino player’s initial 2 cards form a pair, and 21+3 bets win when the player’s 2 cards and the dealer’s 1 face-up card form one of several Poker hands. Players can also place insurance bets against dealer’s Blackjack, and they can use the Bet Behind feature to bet on the success of other live Blackjack players at the table. One of the live Blackjack games from the renowned provider even produces Multipliers that players can win in one round to boost their potential win in the following round.

The dealers who run the 21 games at our live casino present in English, although players can change the game interface language if preferred. Evolution Blackjack supports a range of languages, such as Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, German, Italian, and Spanish. Players can also access in-game support in various languages, and they can access features and settings such as more games, live chat to interact with dealers and other Kiwi live Blackjack players, sound/volume, and screen format via the toolbar buttons at the top of the screen.
