Coral present Game of the Day: Live Blackjack

| 13.01.2015

Hello and welcome back to Game of the Day; where today we feature our live Blackjack tables which offer you a live casino experience 24/7!

The game of Blackjack has been around since the 17th century, when it was first mentioned by the legendary Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes – most famous for writing Don Quixote. His short story Rinconete y Cortadillo features two card sharps proficient in the game of ventiuna (Spanish for 21).

When American casinos started offering “21” they offered a special feature to pique interest. A hand made up the ace of spades and any black jack earned a special payout of 10/1. The nickname of Blackjack stuck and a casino classic was born!

Since those days Blackjack has become a staple game in every casino around the world. Card counters have fought battles of wits with casino security and the game has been the subject of Hollywood films like “21” and “Rain Man”.

The moment you sit down at one of our live tables, you’ll experience Blackjack like never before. Our lovely live dealers will help you learn the ropes, place bets and narrate the action – just as if you were at a high stakes Vegas cardroom. What’s more you can chat with your fellow players, and even watch and mimic their bets if you feel like it!

Of course, some enjoy that “private table” experience and we’re happy to provide. If you’re looking for fast, uninterrupted action sit down at one of our VIP tables where you’ll have the undivided attention of one of our excellently trained dealers.

Blackjack has long been a casino favourite for its fun gameplay and low house edge and those features are retained in our live casino. You’ll find some of the most generous rule sets around on doubling and splitting, keeping the house edge low and giving you the value for money you can always expect from Coral.

With live Blackjack you can experience a casino atmosphere without leaving your home, including the social element of talking to your table mates through live chat. For keen Blackjack players our live tables are an unmissable experience – pushing the action to a whole new level!
