IGT Blackjack Software
IGT are a classic software provider that has been in the gambling business since the 1980s. At first, they only operated in the land-based sector, but thanks to a series of successful mergers the company became a full-scale casino product provider that supplies both online and brick-and-mortar casinos.
Their online expansion began around 2005 when they acquired WagerWorks to successfully port their land-based hits to the online world. Thus, most of their offer is made up from slot games, but they’ve also had a series of successful card and table games as well. They even have their hands busy in the social casino world, thanks to yet another successful purchase of Double Down Interactive.
IGT Blackjack Games
IGT has a well-rounded Blackjack portfolio that offers both standard variants as well as more lucrative options with side bets. Among their offer, you can find the following games:
IGT Table Blackjack – A standard variant designed by WagerWorks, Table Blackjack is a 6-deck game with 3:2 payouts. Per the rules, you can double down on any two cards you want and double after splitting (except aces). The dealer stands on all 17s and you can only split one time, so there’s no re-splitting aces or any other card. Dealer peeks on 10 cards and you can get a 2:1 insurance if you want.
IGT Multi-Hand Blackjack with Bonus Bet – A multi-hand game where you can play up to 3 hands at a time. Payouts are 3:2 for Blackjack and 2:1 for insurance and the dealer stands on all 17s. Doubling down is allowed on any two cards and there’s no re-splitting. The bonus bet is a side bet on whether a hand will be a Blackjack or not, with the trick being that only the first two cards are considered as Blackjack and not split cards. The bonus bet payouts range from 5x-1000x.
IGT Blackjack 21+3 – A European variant with the popular 21+3 side bet. This is a 6 deck game where the dealer stands on all 17, there’s only one re-split and doubling down is allowed on any two cards and after a split. The 21+3 side bet is betting on your cards and the dealer’s up card forming any of the five selected poker hands, with payouts up to 100x.
IGT European Blackjack – Similar to 21+3, this is a 6-deck game but with better rules that give it a very low house edge of approximately 99.7%. Double on any two cards or after split, split aces and play them like any hand, and the dealer stands on all 17s.
IGT Power Blackjack – A favorite to many, at Power Blackjack you have the Power Double, which gives you an option to replace your double down card on hands 9-11, and the Power Split, which gives you a chance to split when you are first dealt a hard 15 or 16 . However, dealer’s 22 is a push.
IGT Blackjack with Hot Streak Bonus – A European game with a hot streak twist added to it. The name comes from the side bet bonuses, which will have your win a bonus for having two, three or four winning hands in a row. The max bonus is 10x.
