High Limit European Blackjack - Microgaming
ABOUT HIGH LIMIT EUROPEAN BLACKJACK
European Blackjack is widely regarded as the most popular variation of the casino classic and it is hardly surprising that its high limit version is drawing huge crowds as well. Microgaming's High Limit European Blackjack is played with mere two decks of cards, which significantly lowers the house edge, thus giving the player a fair chance of beating the casino.
With minimum wager standing at $20, it is perfectly clear the game has been designed to suit high rollers and VIP players, who can stake up to $1,000 per single hand. By doing so, they will not only be in a position to earn hefty profits, but also enjoy numerous perks and benefits offered by the casino to players who risk considerable amount of cash at the tables.
HIGH LIMIT EUROPEAN BLACKJACK RULES
This particular version has a set of rules very similar to the standard variant of Blackjack, but you should still take some time to study them before playing the game for the first time. As we have already mentioned, only two decks of cards are used, while Blackjack and Insurance pay 3 to 2 and 2 to 1 respectively, which is a standard payout.
The dealer receives one card face up at the start of the hand and is not dealt remaining cards until the players' hands are complete. If his first card is Ace or Face card, he is required to check for Blackjack. While the dealer must stand on all 17, the player has the option to split any two cards of the same denomination as well as double down if his first two cards have a value of 9, 10 or 11.
HOW TO PLAY HIGH LIMIT EUROPEAN BLACKJACK
The first thing you need to do is choose your stake per hand, which can be anywhere from $20 to $1,000. Betting starts at $20 and you can use the + button to increase your wager and select from a total of six coin values. Once you are happy with the size of your bet, press deal and you will be dealt the first two cards.
Hit and stand buttons become active once the cards are dealt, while double and split are only available once you can actually use them. Players can enable/disable game sounds in the upper right hand corner, with bank, exit, option and help at your disposal as well. Once you select the preferred bet value, it will be used until you decide to change it, so you can just press deal to start a new hand.
