Blackjack Unlimited

Blackjack Unlimited is a variant of blackjack where there is only one spot and an unlimited number of players can bet on the hand. Actually, other versions have up to three spots that you can bet on but in the case of Ezugi their game only has one. Despite the fact that everyone is playing the same hand, people are allowed to play their own hand how they want it and if they choose to stay while someone else chooses to hit that card does not affect them. The rules for Ezugi’s Blackjack Unlimited are as follows

  • Dealer Stands on Soft Seventeen
  • Double After Split Allowed
  • One Card Only to Split Aces
  • Eight Decks
  • Double Any Two Cards
  • European No Hole Card
  • No Surrender
  • Blackjack Pays 3:2

One advantage to the Blackjack Unlimited variant is the game speed. Because there is only one hand to play rounds are significantly faster than at a normal table. Unfortunately, they do cut off what appears to be three decks out of eight. The documentation suggests a house edge of 0.43%, which is not accurate unless the dealer peeks for blackjack. Assuming you can resplit to four hands and the game is played with the European No Hole Card rule the house edge is actually 0.54%

The house edge on the Perfect Pair side bet is 4.1% and 6.29% for the 21+3 side bet.

Hybrid Blackjack

The rules for Hybrid Blackjack are the same as the rules for Blackjack Unlimited listed above except that splitting to more than two hands is not allowed. This does have a minor 0.05% increase in the house edge bringing the house edge of Hybrid Blackjack to 0.59% assuming that you employ basic strategy. Unlike Blackjack Unlimited, where there is only one hand played, with Hybrid Blackjack you have a full table but players can bet on existing spots and control their hand’s destiny without being forced to follow the decisions of the spot holder.

 

Roulette

Ezugi offers a standard single zero European roulette game with normal payouts.

European style roulette is a lot better than American double zero roulette. The house edge for European Roulette is 2.7% which is around half the house edge of American Roulette 5.2%
