Playtech, an omni-channel gaming software, systems and services supplier, has unveiled its launch of 21+3 Blackjack side bet to add the perks of poker into every round of blackjack.
The 21+3 Blackjack side bet is based on a player’s two cards and the dealer’s up-card; if the three combined cards form a straight, flush, three-of-a-kind, straight flush or suited three-of-a-kind, the player wins the side bet pay-out with enhanced odds.
Players will also have further opportunities when playing the ultimate live casino card game, where receiving a suited three-of-a-kind hand can score players 100 times their original side bet. This combination of classic card games gives players another chance to win regardless of the Blackjack base game results.
Kevin Kilminster, Head of Live Casino Innovation, Playtech, said: “The 21+3 side bet is a great addition to the classic live casino Blackjack game and puts the excitement of poker into every hand.
“It will appeal both to those players who are familiar with either card game, as well as new customers who have never played Blackjack before, and we’re delighted to offer even more chances to win.”
Playtech has licensed 21+3 from Games Marketing, the exclusive online rights holder.
