High Streak games are a genre of online casino games that provide bonus rewards for successive wins. They are usually present in roulette and blackjack variants. Microgaming offers High Streak European Blackjack in its Gold Series. Being a Gold Series game, players will experience a classy casino setting on the screen. High Streak European Blackjack is available at all Microgaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Spin Palace, Platinum Play and Golden Riviera.

High Streak European Blackjack is played with two decks, which gives the player some advantage as compared to the usual eight decks games. The main blackjack game is based on European blackjack, as the name suggests. The dominant rule is that the dealer is dealt only the face up card and does not peek for blackjack. Therefore players have to be a bit careful when wagering extra amounts for the double and the split moves. The other rules of the main game are as follows. The dealer stands on all 17. Players can double down on hard 9, 10 and 11 only. Players can split once only. Split ace and 10 value card counts as 21 and not as blackjack.

Though the High Streak bet is optional, it does not make sense to play this Microgaming blackjack variant without using it. The High Streak Bet is placed independently alongside the main bet. If the player wins, the High Streak bet moves to the 2nd Streak without any payout. In order to continue with the High Streak cycle the player has to place a bet for the main game again. If he places another High Streak bet then he will simultaneously start another High Streak cycle. If the player wins a second time successively, the 2nd Streak win pays even money immediately and the High Streak bet moves to the 3rd Streak. If the player wins a third time successively, the 3rd Streak win pays 2 to 1 immediately and the High Streak bet moves to the 4th Streak. If the player wins a fourth time successively, the 4th Streak win pays 5 to 1 immediately and the High Streak bet moves to the 5th Streak. If the player wins a fifth time successively, the 5th Streak win pays 10 to 1 immediately and the High Streak cycle ends. If a player loses any time in the main game, then all High Streak bets lose and are removed from the table. In the event of a tie the High Streak bets remain on the table without progressing. In the case of a split hand the net result of both hands determines the outcome of the High Streak bets.

In Microgaming High Streak European Blackjack the minimum table bet is 5.00 and the maximum table bet is 1,000.00. Therefore the game is suitable for high rollers. Being a Gold Series game, Microgaming High Streak European Blackjack should be played in the Expert Mode. This gives players access to the strategy card and thus they can play to optimum strategy and maximize the chance of winning. Players can also employ the Auto Play feature along with the strategy card. This feature, however, will place a new High Streak bet with every deal. Conservative players may want to see one High Streak cycle through before starting the next one.
