7-Seat Blackjack NetEnt
Standard 7-Seat Blackjack is a classic blackjack game released by Net Entertainment, a Swedish company that has gained a foothold as No1 Developer of video slots. This blackjack game provides an unmatched level of engagement and fun thanks to a high-definition video stream that makes you feel like at a physical casino. The table limits are designed to cater for both low-limit players and high-rollers, with the maximum bet reaching into $10,000 and more, on VIP tables.
The video stream quality can be customized to suit your Internet connection capabilities. In case you have slow network speed or bad performance of your device, you can try to lower down the video quality in the Settings menu. For a full-fledged casino experience, you can switch to a full screen mode, make the casino background sounds louder/quieter or mute the sound.
There are two information windows that show key details about the game and cannot be hidden from view. The window at the top left corner displays the dealer’s name, your bet in the current round, your win and the total balance. The second window displayed to the right of the screen shows dealer’s last 10 hands and the outcome of the last 10 rounds (Busted, Blackjack, etc., in percentage). Besides, you can see information on the last hand of all players (Wins, Pushed, in percentage).
Basic blackjack rules
This blackjack variation by Net Entertainment is played with 6 standard decks and provides seats for 7 players. Since the game has no Bet Behind feature, non-seated players should wait for an available place to join the game. Because of the limited number of seats, you should try not to skip betting too frequently, otherwise you will lose your seat and it will become vacant.
Basically, the game follows a standard set of blackjack rules that are commonly known as European rules. To avoid problems while playing and making betting decisions, it is recommended that you read the detailed guidelines available by clicking the “i” button on the gaming screen. The main rules are:
- blackjack pays 3:2;
- doubling down is allowed on soft 9, 10 or 11;
- splitting of any cards of the same denomination is allowed. For any split hand, you may hit as many times as required, except for split Aces;
- dealer must hit to 16 and stand on all 17’s.
Insurance and Even Money
Players are offered to buy an insurance if the dealer’s facing-up card is an Ace. If you agree on this option, you will have to pay an extra 50% of your initial bet. You win or lose the insurance bet depending on the value of the dealer’s face-down card. If the dealer gets blackjack, you win the insurance bet and earn double its amount (e.g., if the insurance bet is $10, you get $20 back). In case the dealer has no blackjack, you lose the insurance bet.
The Even Money option is offered to you if you have blackjack and the dealer has an Ace, while the dealer’s second card is still faced down. Choosing to take Even Money, you win 1:1 without playing your blackjack hand in the current round.
