It’s not as though players don’t have plenty of choices when it comes to blackjack. New, high-quality options are dropping all the time, often offering special bonuses, fresh features, or other similarly elements meant to draw gamblers’ attention.
How is a player to decide where to give their business?
There’s no one right answer, but in our humble opinion, the best do the basics better. The games that offer the strongest fundamentals usually make for the best investments of time AND hard-earned money. Shiny bells and whistles are all well and good, but only if elements like base play, RTP, and such go off without a hitch.
Well, to speak plainly, this game delivers those basics about as well as any we’ve seen. Ever.
Base game play is simple and incredibly smooth, with a visual design that is both elegant and understated. Generally, the standard player-friendly rules are offered, from 3:2 blackjack payouts to dealers standing on soft 17.
The dealers are clearly very well trained, doing an admirable job of engaging players under the somewhat challenging situation of Common Draw rules, where an unlimited number of players can be active at the same time, all being dealt the same cards but making independent decisions.
And of course, the game streams live in HD for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with an unlimited number of seats available.
From where we’re sitting, it looks to us like Authentic has hit a Grand Slam in their first at-bat of producing games outside the realm of their usual roulette wheelhouse. Strong work!
