The online gaming software developer, Wizard Gaming, entered the market with only online slot games. Since then it has regularly promised that it would be adding the other online casino games. It has now redeemed that pledge by adding a variant of blackjack along with an upgrade of the software to version 4.0. It has added two new slots game as well. All the new games can be played at All Star Slots online casino, which is the only casino powered by Wizard Gaming.
The blackjack game is called Classic Blackjack. Blackjack is one of the most popular online casino games because it embodies a judicious mix of luck and skill. There are many variants of the game available on online casinos and therefore one has to be very clear about the rules. Classic Blackjack is played with a single deck. This is great news for blackjack players because the house edge keeps increasing as the number of decks is increased. The dealer stands on all totals of 17. This again is good news because if the dealer is allowed to hit on a soft 17 it increases the advantage to the casino. The player is restricted to drawing 9 additional cards, but this is no disadvantage because he will never need that many. The payouts offered are standard blackjack payouts with normal wins paying even money, blackjack paying at 3:2 and insurance win paying at 2:1. The minimum bet is $1 and the maximum bet is $200.
The rules of the game are explained in detail with suitable tables and screenshots as is the practice at All Star Slots online casino. Even the rules of the slots games are described meticulously in a manner not found at other online casinos. In the "How To Play" section the playing mechanism is outlined. It is generally similar to blackjack games of other software developers and therefore regular players of the game should adapt easily. Then the special moves are explained one by one. Cards of the same denomination can be split without restriction. Though ten, jack, queen and king have the same value of 10, they are of different denominations. Therefore players cannot split a jack and a king. However this is not a disadvantage because it is inadvisable to split cards of value 10, even if they are of the same denomination. The insurance bet is in its standard form and needs no explanation. The player can double only if the hand value of the dealt cards is 9, 10 or 11. This offers a slight disadvantage because on certain dealer cards the optimum strategy is to double when players hold an ace and a low value card. But if the casino concedes all the advantages to the player it will have to close down.
