Majority Rules vs. Best Strategy
Playtech is known as the author of some of the best Live blackjack titles. Developed on the basis of one of the most popular casino classics, Majority Rules Speed Blackjack literally takes player experience to the new level of interaction. The game is enhanced with two different modes – Majority Rules and Best Strategy, each has specific conditions while the mode type depends on the number of players in each round.
The Majority Rules mode…
…lets all punters vote on Hit, Stand, Double or Split, with a 50% or greater vote triggering an automatic action. In case the table has fewer patrons, the Best Strategy mode is coming into play, meaning hands are automatically resolved according to the pre-established Blackjack best strategy flow.
In either situation, players need to set their preferences in advance and choose whether they want to accept a vote or the best strategy decision on Split and Double actions that require additional funds.
Real Community Feel
Proud of their top-notch brainchild, both sides highlight the benefits of community play, which becomes more and more popular among visitors of online casinos. By the way, apart from offering a tremendous assorment of traditional Live Dealer games, Playtech was among the pioneers of immersive Live Slots.
Commenting on the upcoming blackjack title, Edo Haitin, CEO at Playtech Live Casino, said:
“Innovation and experience-led gameplay are at the core of our product strategy, and Majority Rules Speed Blackjack delivers on both counts. The success of our community Live Slots concept demonstrates player demand for interactive & fun games – the experience you would enjoy when playing alongside others in a land-based casino.
We’re confident the combination of engaging classic Blackjack gameplay and the new collaborative, community play will be a major hit with players and will of course create the proper Speed variant for Blackjack.”
Matt Charlesworth, Head of Live Casino at GVC, which operates a number of popular betting platforms and recently partnered with Relax Gaming, added:
“Everyone at GVC was delighted to work closely with Playtech on Majority Rules Speed Blackjack, through all stages of concept, design and development – and we’re excited to offer this first of its type game to our players across the GVC brands. Majority Rules Speed Blackjack captures a real community feel with the unique “Ask the Audience” voting approach to the in-game decision-making. The game is fully scalable, offering something very different for players, without deviating from classic European Blackjack with popular sidebets.”
