Blackjack Multihand VIP by iSoftBet is a popular variation of classic blackjack. In this variation, players encouraged to play up to five hands at once. Basically, you can play more than one hand per game, which can be seen in the interface. As you can see, there are five different betting boxes. You can choose to play on all of them or only one; the rules stay the same. Speaking of rules, multihand blackjack rules are a little different from the classic blackjack, which we will explain below. But let’s start with the graphical quality: Blackjack Multihand VIP is a good looking game. The interface consists of an image of a blackjack table, but it looks very realistic and easily understandable.
To start the game, click on the “new game” button. As we mentioned above, you can bet on all of the five betting boxes. The bet levels change between 25.00 and 50.00 coins, and the maximum bet you can make is 1.000 coins in the demo version. (The minimum bet required to enter the game is 100 coins.) As with other blackjack games, the goal is to reach a total of 21 or a total higher than the dealer. You can hit, stand or double down your bet. These rules are the same as classic blackjack. The differences are these:
-Five decks are used instead of eight in multihand blackjack games
-There is no surrender option
-The dealer always stands on 17; it doesn’t matter if it is a “hard” or “soft” 17
-Re-splitting or doubling is not allowed after the first split
-The dealer cannot check his hole card before the end of the round
-You can double down only if you have a total of 9, 10 or 11
-The house edge is %0.39 in multihand blackjack games
Blackjack has a payout of 3 to 1 and the insurance pays 2 to 1. We recommend always standing if you have a total of 17 or higher. If you get a pair of Aces, always split them. Declining the insurance offer is advised, because the house edge becomes very high (%6.7) if you accept the offer. Blackjack Multihand VIP has a fast pace and if you are playing with more than one betting box, be careful – don’t make fast decisions. Other than that, we loved the game and recommend it to every type of players out there. Have fun and play at Casino Avenue to find more card games!
