First, let’s take a look at the RNG games, they were first available in online casinos. There are plenty of virtual blackjack games to try out online as the providers have tried to accommodate different player preferences and come up with different additional side bets. Since all of this cannot be integrated into the same blackjack game, new variants have been developed. Some of the best and most popular online blackjack games are:
American Blackjack – In this variant, the dealer receives the second card face down (a hole card) and is allowed to look at it if his face card is an ace, which gives him an advantage! This game uses between 6 and 8 decks of cards. American variants of a game often offer a disadvantage for the player and an advantage for the casino (see also American Roulette!)
European Blackjack – This is classic blackjack. There are only 2 decks of cards here and the dealer is not allowed to look at his second card until the player has completed his hand. So no advantages for the house.
MultiHand Blackjack – This is a variant that allows you to play 5 different hands at the same time. A little more complicated than the others, but possibly also more lucrative.
Buster Blackjack – Here we have variant with an additional side bet that allow players to win a little more if the dealer bust.
Perfect-Pairs Blackjack – This is game with an optional side bet where players can bet on the 1st set of cards that is pair of the same value.
Live Dealer Blackjack Games
Live dealer or studio blackjack is now an integral part of live casinos, which in turn are part of online casinos. Among the best live blackjack games to play are:
Infinite Blackjack – This is a live version that allows an unlimited number of players thanks to a combination of virtual and manually issued cards.
Live Common Draw Blackjack – Here we have a variant of NetEnt that is played with 6 decks of cards and has a very high payout rate of an incredible 99.5%!
