LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – Nov. 24, 2010) – If you’ve ever dreamed of playing Blackjack on the legendary Las Vegas Strip, then Jackpotjoy’s brand new Vegas Strip Blackjack could be just what you’re looking for. It offers the chance to double down on any two cards, split up to four times and enjoy it all with just four decks standing between you and a big win!
Playing Blackjack on Vegas’ legendary strip is about much more than just enjoying the bright lights of the world’s most famous gambling cities, as Fraser Linkleter, Jackpotjoy’s head of Casino, explains:
“One of the real successes of Blackjack, is the ability for the game to produce variants. Each different one offers a new way to play. Vegas Strip Blackjack offers you the chance to play the game, with rules that come straight from the most famous gambling road in the world.”
Vegas Strip Blackjack offers players the chance to split any two cards of equal value up to three times, so you could find yourself playing with up to four hands to beat the dealer.
“In most instances,” Fraser tells us, “you can only split matching cards. But in Vegas Strip you can split any two cards of matching value, which means you could split mismatched picture cards. This can make for a very exciting game with you controlling up to four hands, that could each lead with a ten.
“Alongside this,” he goes on enthusiastically, “is the chance to double down even after splitting. This means that if you end up with a string of 10s or elevens, which is very possible, you can double your wager on each hand and get one more card to take against the dealer.”
Vegas Strip is one of three new variants of Blackjack that has come to Jackpotjoy, bringing their total number of Blackjack games to six.
“Being able to choose from a variety of Blackjack games is really important for us,” Fraser says. “And I think releasing these three is a massive step in the right direction.”
