What is Infinite Blackjack?
Infinite Blackjack is another live Blackjack game designed by Evolution Gaming. It uses the regular Blackjack table and allows an unlimited number of players to participate at the same time.
Unlike many other versions of Live Blackjack by Evolution Gaming, Infinite Blackjack takes place in a quiet environment. You won’t find other casino tables or dealers around. When you play the game, it’s you and the dealer alone.
Infinite Blackjack is played in a quiet environment, without any distractions
Another extra feature in Infinite Blackjack is the six-card Charlie bonus. You can’t find this feature in any other Blackjack version.
How to Play Infinite Blackjack
The game is played with 8 decks of cards. It follows the same rules as the standard online Blackjack. The gameplay is also like that of the standard Blackjack live by Evolution Gaming.
Ace card counts as 1 or 11, picture card count as 10, and number cards take their face value. You win when you get 21 (blackjack) or a total value higher than that of the dealer. However, when you go above 21, you bust (lose).
Here is how to play Infinite Blackjack from Evolution Gaming
Step 1: Place your bets
You have a total of 16 seconds to place your bet. You can choose between 1, 5, 25, 100, 500, 1000, and 2x.
There are four optional side bets you can place. We have written more about the side bets further down in this article.
Step 2: The dealer deals the cards
After betting, a total of 4 cards are dealt. The dealer deals first to you, and then to herself. The first two cards are faced up.
She deals again to you first and then herself. This time, only your card is faced up, the fourth card dealt to himself is faced down.
The total value of your cards will be displayed on the screen, so you won’t have to count. The value of the dealer’s card will also show on the screen.
Step 3: Decide if you want to stand or keep playing
Here, you decide whether to hit or stand. If you choose to continue, you can place side bets again.
In Infinite Blackjack, many players participate at the same time. Thus, when you choose to stand, the dealer will keep dealing until the player gets 21 or bust.
Step 4: The dealer shows her hidden card
After the player reaches Blackjack or busts, the dealer opens her face down card. She must hit on 17 (even soft 17).
That is, if the value of his first two cards equals 17 or is lesser than, she has to keep dealing. The dealing continues until she gets 21, a number between 18 to 20, or bust.
The value of the dealer’s card hand is calculated and potential payouts are made. These are the three major outcomes that determine if you win:
- If you get a total cards value of 21, you win
- A total value less than 21 but higher than the dealer’s cards also wins
- A total value higher than 21 busts. That is, you lose the game
The exclusive six-card Charlie feature also grants you a win. It kicks in when you’re dealt 6 cards, without exceeding 21. If this happens, you win the game even when the dealer gets a Blackjack.
There are four optional side bets you can make in Infinite Blackjack.
This is betting that the first two cards dealt will be a pair. For example, if you make this bet and get a pair of 8s, you get a payout.
Here you have an element of poker brought into Blackjack. You have to bet that your first two cards and the dealer’s first card will make a poker hand.
This side bet makes your dealer’s face-up card a part of your blackjack hand. To win here, your first two cards and the dealer’s first card must make 19, 20, or 21. The payouts are different, depending on the combination of cards.
The bust side bet means betting that the dealer will bust. Your payout size will be determined by the number of cards the dealer busts with. The higher the number of cards, the bigger your payout.
The payouts in Infinite Blackjack are the same as other Blackjack games like Speed Blackjack. The tables below show what you get for the different bet types
|8 or more cards||250:1|
- Blackjack: 99.47%
- Bust: 94.12%
- 21+3: 96.30%
Infinite Blackjack Strategy
Avoid side bets
While the normal bets of Infinite Blackjack offer a good return to player rate, the side bets do not. The high RTP of the regular bets is high due to the additional Six Card Charlie feature.
But when you make the side bets, it reduces your winning potential. So, even though the payouts for side bets look enticing, you may end up losing much more.
If you have a soft hand
When you have a soft hand (hand with an Ace), here are rules you can follow to give you a better chance
- Hit if you have a total card value of 12 or less
- Stand when you have between 19 to 21
- Always split a pair of aces
- When you have a pair of 4s, always hit
- Stand when you have a pair of 10
If you have a hard hand
Without a soft hand, you can do the following:
- Hit when the total value of your cards is 8 or lesser
- Stand when you have between 17 to 21 in total
Another thing that makes Infinite Blackjack so special are the beautiful in-game features. There are many customizable features available to you.
You can increase or reduce the volume of the game. It also allows you to switch between the sounds of the dealer’s voice and the shuffling of cards. You can also decide to mute the sound completely.
The game also allows you to choose between different camera angles. Then, there is a chat feature that allows you to communicate with the dealer and other players of the game. You’ll find the chat box at the left bottom of the game.
