Are you a fan of live dealer blackjack games, but looking for something a little more exclusive? If so, The Strip Blackjack by Evolution could be the game for you!

You won’t find it at any old online casino site, as it’s an Aspire Global exclusive. As such, it’s only available at selected sites, such as MrMega.

To discover more about this live casino game, including the rules, bet limits and RTP, read on!

What is The Strip Blackjack 

The Strip Blackjack is a live dealer casino game. It’s perfect for those who aren’t quite fully-fledged high rollers, but are perhaps looking for something a little more exclusive. With a minimum bet size of £5, you won’t find micro-stakes players at these tables. But the maximum wager of £5,000 allows for some sizable bets to be placed.

Created by Evolution, the industry’s number one live casino supplier, the game uses standard Las Vegas blackjack rules. And like all of Evolution’s live casino titles, you can interact with friendly and professional dealers, via high definition streams. It’s as close as you can possibly get to a real life casino experience, without leaving the comfort of your own couch!

Finally, The Strip Blackjack is only accessible to players at casinos on the Aspire Global network, such as MrMega. 

The Strip Blackjack Rules

The rules of this live casino game are the same as most online blackjack games, employing a standard Vegas setup. Aces are worth either 11 or 1 point, with Tens through Kings all worth 10. Every other card keeps its face value, so a 7 is equal to 7 points, for instance. The aim of the game is to beat the dealer’s score. But remember, if your own total exceeds 21, it’s game over for you.

There are eight 52-card decks in the shoe, insurance is offered and paid at 2 to 1, while a blackjack pays 3 to 2. Tables can seat up to 7 players and it’s possible to play multiple hands at the same table. Your minimum bet size is £5.

Doubling and Splitting

After receiving your first two cards, you may opt to double down. You’ll increase your bet size, offering bigger returns if you win. But the trade-off is that you’ll only receive one more card, regardless of how good or bad it turns out to be.

Whenever you’re dealt a pair, you may opt to split them. This creates two brand new hands, requiring you to add an extra bet to the table. Again, this can be a lucrative play when you win, but costly if you lose. So you should only look to split when the dealer shows a weak-looking card.

Side Bets

In addition to the standard bet, The Strip Blackjack allows players to wager on the side too. For instance, “Perfect Pairs” rewards you whenever your starting hand is made up of a pair. The more closely they match, in terms of colour or suit, the bigger the prize.

Meanwhile, “21+3” adds an extra layer of intrigue to the game, not to mention rewards of up to 100 to 1. If your first three cards form a poker hand, such as a straight flush or three of a kind, you’ll secure a bonus payout.

It’s also possible to “Bet Behind” other players. You have no control over their actions, of course. But if they win, so do you!

Gameplay Example 

Let’s quickly run through a hand to illustrate exactly how this game works. 

  • Place a bet. Stake anywhere from £5 to £5,000 using the virtual chips on screen.
  • Optional side bets. If playing a hand, you may also wager on side bets like 21+3.
  • Cards are dealt. The dealer gives two cards to everyone seated at the table. If the dealer receives an Ace, insurance will be offered.
  • Players make decisions. Each player in turn may now choose to take further cards, stand or double down. They can also split if they have a pair.
  • Dealer reveals hand. Once every player is finished, the dealer shows their hidden card. If their hand is 17 or above, they must stand, drawing on 16 or below.

The Strip Blackjack For Mobile

Playing live casino games on the go is more popular than ever. That’s why top suppliers like Evolution now ensure that all of their games are compatible with mobile devices. From the quality sounds and graphics, to the range of side bets and bonuses, there’s no difference between desktop and mobile performance. 

It doesn’t matter whether or not your preferred mobile casino offers an app. The Strip Blackjack is fully responsive, even when running in a browser. So whether you’re an iOS, Windows or Android user, it adjusts for optimal performance.
