There’s a lot to like about this online casino. They’re part of the London Stock Exchange listed William Hill Plc group of companies, and bring decades of experience from operating over 2000 retail betting shops to online. Their live dealer games, including blackjack are streamed out of Playtech’s Latvian dealer studio and the look of the games, video stream/studio and dealers is pretty good. A large staff of dealers ensures plenty of tables are available for play no matter what time you are logged on.

These guys seem to be at the forefront of everything online gambling, and live gaming is no exception. They were one of the first adopters of Playtech’s initial live dealer platform which serves live video footage from an Asian based dealer studio.

Dublinbet are a unique live casino anyway, but their blackjack offering sets them apart from typical offerings even further.

First the casino point of difference; rather than the game being dealt in a dealer studio, it is a game played in a real casino - Dublin’s Fitzwilliam Card Club and Casino. Footage is streamed from the casino’s table and presented for players to bet online over a simple interface.

Secondly the game itself; this is Vuetec’s (platform provider) patented game Blackjack Basic Strategy with Early Payout. It’s really not blackjack in the traditional sense at all, as you don’t get to choose whether to hit, stand, double down etc as you normally would. Instead, mandatory basic strategy is enforced, and an early payout is offered at each stage of the deal. Because of the adherence to basic strategy, return to player rates are high (99.5% historical returns claimed by casino) and it may be a good option for novices, but experienced players may not find it too much chop.

The three critical points to note about these guys are:

  1. they are based in Costa Rica so read carefully; and
  2. they also happen to be one of the very few live casinos that accept US players; and
  3. they offer ‘single player blackjack’

The game takes a little bit of getting used to as the deal is slightly different to account for a single deal catering to many players (if that makes sense!) but the key thing to remember is that standard blackjack rules apply.

Licensed and based in the UK, these guys set up as a ‘for TV’ gaming operator. Their games are dealt in a TV studio and broadcast through the UK on a a number of dedicated channels, including Sky, Freeview, free to air on Channel 5. The only problem with their offering is that, since the games are broadcast on television, the schedule is limited to a few hours during the evenings (GMT).
