Blackjack Varieties

November 6, 2023

It is often said that classic games do not need to be tinkered with, because the reason they are considered classics in the first place is due to them being flawless.

While this may be true to some degree, there is always room for innovation that can add to the gaming experience.

Here are some of the many different offshoots that exist of online Blackjack, so players can decide which version they would enjoy most.


This is the purest form of Blackjack that exists in our casino because it is the original from which all other Blackjack variants were created.

This variant is played with six 52-card decks and across three seats. The dealer does not receive a hole card and must hit on all totals of 16 or under, as well as on soft 17.

Classic Blackjack

While some players enjoy the additional side betting options that many new Blackjack variants provide, Classic Blackjack keeps things sleek and simple.

This makes for a nice ergonomic gaming interface. The same basic rules as in the previous Blackjack variant are applied, but this game is played with eight 52-card decks.

Premium Blackjack

Premium Blackjack is such a favourite among Blackjack aficionados because its dealers only use 4 decks compared to the usual 6 or 8.

In this variant, the dealer does not receive a hole card and must hit on all totals of 16 or under and stand on all 17s.

High Roller Blackjack

For those players who enjoy the high roller lifestyle, High Roller Blackjack is very similar to the standard blackjack variant, but offers a different look and feel as well as higher stake levels.

Live Blackjack

All the games mentioned so far in this article are hosted by computer generated dealers, but there is a team of real-life live dealers also waiting to be interacted with at our Live Casino.

Of course, Live Blackjack is one of the Live Casino’s flagship games.

Live dealers are always busy keeping Blackjack games flowing and ensuring that players are receiving the best gaming experience possible

Live Free Bet Blackjack

Splitting a pair, or doubling down on a nine card, are two of the trickier decisions in most variants of Blackjack, with extra pressure applied to a player as he must wager more so as to benefit from such moves. However, in Live Free Bet Blackjack it costs nothing to split if a player is dealt a pair in his initial hand (except for 10s) or to double down if his first two cards total 9,10 or 11, which is what makes this variant special.

Live Infinite Blackjack

The genius of Live Infinite Blackjack is that an unlimited number of players can join a table and thrust themselves into the action, meaning there is no more waiting around for a seat.

PokerStars All Bets Blackjack

All Bets Blackjack is the version of the game aimed at Blackjack players who love variation.

This is because it offers a wide range of side bets, such as Buster Blackjack, Lucky Lucky, 21+3, Top 3, and Perfect Pairs, all of which add an extra dimension to this already thoroughly enjoyable table game.
