Big Five Multi-Hand Blackjack Gold
Don’t let the four-toed paw-print fool you, this game is played with five full decks of 52 cards (shuffled, of course, before each deal).
Multi-Hand Big Five Blackjack Gold from Microgaming is an online blackjack game that provides you with a early surrender option with almost every hand. It is available in the upgraded Gold edition only, and can be played in both single- and multi-hand versions.
Microgaming’s typical blackjack rules apply, so there’s no doubling down restrictions, splitting is allowed up to 3 times, and the Dealer must hit a soft 17.
If you do like to split your hands, you’ll have plenty of opportunity since all 10-value cards are equal in terms of a split; just keep in mind that Aces can only be split once and will only be given one card afterward.
Big Five Blackjack is a no-peek game. You may feel that the dealer still has an opportunity to taunt you since you’ll be asked if you want to surrender each time your hand is dealt (except when the dealer shows Ace—and in that case you’ll be asked if you would like insurance).
The speed and agility of the game was broken up a bit with the constant question, but I got over it and still had a pretty good time anyway.
Insurance is also available with Big Five Blackjack Gold, and you’ll be asked if you want it when the option is available.
We are of the stance that insurance is a very helpful tool in everything outside of blackjack. Inside of blackjack, insurance invariably will favor the house.
You’ll be able to play 1 credit up to 200 credits on this table.
The Big Five Blackjack not only refers to the number of decks in the game, but also, in this case, the number of hands you can play at a time.
It’s perfect for the multi-tasker and the non-tasker alike—you can feel like you’ve gotten a lot (or nothing) done very quickily!
