Have you ever noticed that some live casinos (cough *Unibet* cough) have a ridiculously large number of almost identical live blackjack tables? This a common problem in the online gambling world. Live blackjack has proved so popular among you, the players, that live online casinos and game developers have been playing catch-up trying to keep up with demand. With thousands of players around the globe demanding to hit or stick 24-hours a day, it was never going to be long before someone came up with an innovative way to keep all these players happy at once.
Enter, Unlimited Blackjack. Sometimes also called Common Draw Blackjack, this game variety solves the above problem by allowing unlimited players to bet on the same hand – while still making their own bet choices.
Available in single hand or standard five-seat table varieties, Unlimited Blackjack lets as many players as want to sit at one table. Each player bets on the single hand (or one of the five choices), and then chooses to hit, stand or fold in the usual way. However, should you choose differently to one of the other players betting on the same hand as you – both choices count.
So, for example, say you chose to stick on a 17 but someone else betting on the same hand chose to hit. They would receive another card, but it would be greyed out for you and would not affect your bet.
Lastly, all Unlimited Blackjack games will force you to split or fold on a pair or in accordance with the optimum strategy. If you choose to split, a new equivalent wager will be put down on a second hand dealt by the dealer from there on. You can play both, one or either by choosing to hit or fold on the next card dealt for each.
Now that we’ve covered what Unlimited Blackjack is, lets see which live casinos and developers help put it out to the people.
