They say that the classics never go out of style and even after 100 years Blackjack is still one of the most popular games at the casino. The game’s appeal lies in its straightforward rules, anyone can enjoy it, exciting gameplay and potential for big payouts. No matter what casino game you play nothing can quite beat the magic of ‘21’ and taking the house to the cleaners!

Live Blackjack


Most online casinos offer at the very least a small selection of live blackjack tables with some offering as many as 38. At online casinos, Blackjack can be played live and in real time with real life dealers and players from around the world 24/7. William Hill leads the way with their live Blackjack offering with an impressive 38 different tables for players to enjoy. Limits at the tables start from as little as £$€0.50 and increase to as much as £$€10,000, offering something for players of all levels. Other online casinos with notable live Blackjack offerings include Mr Green (28 tables), Ladbrokes (18 tables), 888Casino (26 tables), LeoVegas (16 tables) and Sky Vegas (16 tables).

To make the live Blackjack more interesting there are side bets at some casinos. For example, at 888Casino players can place extra bets on perfect pairs, 21+3, and insurance bets can also be made. Many casinos also allow players to bet behind which lets you bet on other player’s hands. As a maximum of 7 players can play at a single table the bet behind facility means that an unlimited number of people can still enjoy the game.

Table limits at live casinos are usually much higher than in regular versions of the game. At both William Hill and 888Casino, the live Blackjack table limits reach a staggering £$€10,000. Both the table limits and minimum bets vary from operator to operator, starting from as little as £$€0.50. Blackjack variants such as Blackjack Switch, Surrender and Pontoon aren’t offered by live casinos. One of the few Blackjack variants available is Blackjack Party by Evolution Gaming. The Blackjack variant aims to create a party like atmosphere with entertaining dealers and party tunes.

Live Blackjack Promotions


Online gaming is an extremely competitive industry and one of the many ways that operators try to set themselves apart from their rivals is through promotions. There are currently some excellent live blackjack promotions for players to take advantage of. An excellent ongoing promotion at the Bet365 live casino is the Tuesday Cashback Bonus. Every Tuesday players can earn a playback bonus of 10% up to £$€100 on whatever the House takes in total as a result of your play. It’s the perfect way to maximize your blackjack play.

Another great live Blackjack promotion currently running is the Blackjack Bonanza at BGO. Every time a player hits two consecutive hands of blackjack, a hand consisting of a black Jack card and an ace, they’ll receive a £$€5 bonus. To be eligible for the bonus players need to wager £$€1 or more of real money per hand and all bonuses are subject to a wagering requirement of x20. The promotion is running on live Blackjack at BGO until all of the 500 bonuses have been claimed.
