Evolution Gaming has launched the Speed Blackjack, a version of Super-fast Live Blackjack. The Speed Blackjack basically follows the same rule as the Live Blackjack, except a key difference. The dealing order for the players to make a decision is different for Speed Blackjack.
The first two cards in the Super Blackjack are considered as the Normal Cards. Once after the dealing of these cards are done, players have the option to Hit, Double Down or Split as per the new rules of the game. The game is to make the decision fast. The fastest player to decide would get the next card dealt first. This pattern continues unless all the players have made all the decisions and all the required additional cards have already dealt.
Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer, at Evolution Gaming said that since hundreds of years Blackjack has been played with one unique technique. The decision is made from dealer’s left to the right. This way the players need to wait for the decision. However, with Speed Blackjack, the waiting would be nullified. He further clarified that there would be no changes to the maths of the game; instead the waiting time would be reduced. The fastest player to decide would get a chance to get the next Hit Card, he said. He also believes that it would be a fair game and everyone would have more chances.
He further added that Speed Blackjack is actually 30-40% faster than the other Live Blackjack games. Haushalter was in all praise of the game as he further added that the love of the game would be same but with more control and less waiting time.
Well, it looks like finally something very interesting has come up for the players in the Live Blackjack. No one really likes waiting and with the new Speed Blackjack, a faster game would be possible.
