Perfect Blackjack is filmed live in a studio and streamed straight to your device, so all of the sights and sounds you experience are as you would find in a brick-and-mortar casino – from the shuffling of the deck to the laidback music in the background.
Focus on Live Perfect Blackjack
When you load Perfect Blackjack on your screen you will be greeted by a friendly dealer, who is hard at work keeping the action flowing at a table that can have up to seven players at any one time.
If you want to maximize your chances of winning, NetEnt’s Perfect Blackjack offers a unique feature you will struggle to find anywhere else. Choose the Autoplay option and your hands will be played out in accordance with the famous ‘perfect blackjack’ strategy – if you are unfamiliar with this, give it a Google!
You can enjoy Perfect Blackjack on desktop computer, laptop or mobile device, with operating systems like iOS and Android supported.
The rules of Perfect Blackjack are the same as you would find in any other version of the game. The object is to score as close to 21 with your hand as possible, from a combination of hitting, doubling down, splitting pairs and so on.
It is worth noting some of the minutiae though, as these rules may just help you to decide what to do in your net hand. The dealer’s hand must always be at least 16 – they will keep turning cards until they have satisfied that condition, and they will stand on 17 or better.
As ever, blackjack – a combination of an ace and a picture card or ten – trumps any other hand, and the round ends as soon as you or the dealer reveal the perfect hand.
If your hand is closer to 21 than the dealer’s then you will win the round. If you bust your hand (i.e. go over 21) then you will lose your stake.
Gameplay in Live Perfect Blackjack
The live dealer dishes out the cards, and when you receive your pair you can click your chips on screen to determine the stake size you want to choose.
When it’s your turn, you can apply the traditional blackjack tactics – hit, stand or double down – to get as close to 21 as possible without going bust. The dealer completes the round by revealing his or her hand.
You can place a series of side bets at the start of the round if you wish. There’s 21+3, Perfect Pairs and insurance, where you can mitigate the risk of the dealer revealing the perfect blackjack hand.
