Game: Blackjack Basic Strategy with Early Payout™

Live Blackjack - from the Fitzwilliam Card Club and Casino in Dublin

Blackjack Basic Strategy with Early Payoutrequires some explanation.  The key differences between this game and standard blackjack are:

- Mandatory basic strategy - you must choose the basic strategy play at each opportunity; or

- Take a payout that is offered at each stage of the deal which is calculated by reference to the cards dealt to that point.

The advantage of the game is that sub-optimal play is not possible. As a result, the game developers claim its historical return to player rate is a very health 99.5%.  The disadvantage is that you aren't given free reign to make you blackjack bet choices - part of teh fun of the game for some.
