Playtech To Offer Majority Rules Speed Blackjack Across The GVC Brands
Posted on June 16, 2020 | 6:21 am
The world’s leading supplier of the gambling software, services, and content including ive casino solutions Playtech has made public the upcoming launch of Majority Rules Speed Blackjack – a new scalable live dealer game designed with an idea of community play.
A top-notch result of the fruitful cooperation with GVC, the new title will be exclusively available across the brand’s network from July.
Unusual Twist To Classic Blackjack
Based on an old good classic BJ gameplay, Majority Rules Speed Blackjack offers a totally new level of player interaction as it features two different modes – Majority Rules and Best Strategy – with the number of players in each round dictating the mode.
Playing in the Majority Rules mode…
…all punters vote on Hit, Stand, Double or Split, with a 50% or greater vote triggering an automatic action. As for tables with a fewer number of patrons, Best Strategy mode is deployed. In this case, player hands are automatically resolved according to the predetermined Blackjack best strategy flow.
For both variants, players have to decide in advance whether they prefer to accept a vote or the best strategy decision on Split and Double actions that require additional funds.
High Demand For Interactive Games
One of the main stars on the global iGaming scene, Playtech delivers an off-the-charts quality of HD streaming and a truly diverse selection of games. The Isle-of-Man headquartered giant offers a striking cast of engaging variants to traditional baccarat, blackjack, roulette, and poker titles.
Adding new games on a regular basis, the brand recently released Live Cashback Blackjack teaming up with Stoiximan/Betano.
Speaking on the latest addition to the company’s rich portfolio, 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.”
In his turn, Matt Charlesworth, Head of Live Casino at GVC commented:
“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.”
