If you want to know more about this live Blackjack dealers version, read this review.
Specific rules of this Blackjack version
As its name suggests, Free Bet Blackjack differs from other versions thanks to “Free Bets”. These Free Bets are possible in two specific cases.
- In the first case, the amount of your first 2-card hand is 9, 10 or 11 points. In this case, the system will automatically double your bet to allow you to cash twice more in case of a winning party. However, in the case where the dealer busts after you have doubled, there is a tie and you will only get back your bet without any additional gain.
- In the second case, you automatically benefit from a Free Bet when your initial bet is formed by a pair of cards of the same type, except when you have two 10s. When this is the case, the system automatically makes a Split so that you can increase your chances of winning without having to add an additional bet.
Side bets and same operation as Infinite Blackjack
As you can see, this new version works the same way as Infinite Blackjack, Evolution Gaming’s version that allows an unlimited number of players simultaneously. There is no queue and you can play at any time. Here, the two starting hand cards are the same for all live players. Everyone can make the decision he wants and manage the game as he wishes.
Another commonality between Free Bet Blackjack and Infinite Blackjack is side bets. In this case, four different bets are available: 21 + 3, Hot3, Any Pair and Bust It. 6- Card Charlie is also available in this case. With the latter, you necessarily have a gain if you get a 6- card hand which amount does not exceed 21 points.

Free Bet Blackjack is already available on several Evolution Gaming’s live casinos. You can play on FatBoss, Dublinbet or Lucky31. The table is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week and the interface is fully compatible with mobiles (smartphones and tablets).
