Playtech, one of the leading casino software developers, has added an exciting new spin on its popular Live Dealer Blackjack game with the introduction of the ever popular 21+3 side bet feature.

The foundation of the main blackjack game remains unchanged but the new version adds a poker-like side game to add a little extra excitement. Using the player’s two cards in conjunction with the dealer’s up-card, the player can win a side bet pay-out if he makes a straight, flush, three-of-a-kind, straight flush or suited three-of-a-kind.

If you receive a suited three-of-a-kind hand you will walk away with a cool 100 times your original side bet.

The side game, which has proved immensely popular in land-based casinos, not only adds to the thrill of the game without affecting (or being affected by) the main game itself, it also improves the player’s chances of winning.

Playtech’s Head of Live Casino Innovation Kevin Kilminster 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.”
