New blackjack title for NetEnt
Casino News Daily reports news about the release first spread earlier this year, with NetEnt getting a glimpse into its live casino rendition of the classic during February’s ICE conference in London.
The Swedish content studio developed Perfect Blackjack in partnership with British gambling powerhouse The Rank Group and its Grosvenor Casinos brand, known to be the UK’s largest multi-channel casino operator with multiple land-based properties and digital operations.
NetEnt has been promoting its new blackjack game as a unique and fun-friendly title.
Perfect Blackjack is said to be focused on the acquisition of new players with its 99.5 per cent return-to-player.
Perfect Blackjack deals cards according to perfect blackjack strategy, which trims the house edge all the way down to 05 per cent.
Aside from the player-friendly edge, it also boosts player experience by adding the element of speed.
NetEnt’s new title is the first live dealer blackjack game that features optional autoplay functionality enabling players to pre-select whether they want to auto-split or double down according to perfect blackjack strategy.
With multi-seat and multiple-players per box for full flexibility and scalability, players can decide to autoplay or sit out hands and join the action again when they think it is the right time to act.
In addition, the game features side bets such as perfect pair.
Developed in partnership with Grovenor Casinos, NetEnt’s Perfect Blackjack was originally made available exclusively on the operator’s website.
NetEnt said this week that the game is now available live across its network.
The launch of the new dealer game followed the recent rollout of a new user interface across NetEnt’s live portfolio of titles.
NetEnt Live director Andrew Rengifo said that launching the game onto their full NetEnt live customer network means that players will be able to be “introduced to and enjoy the benefits of the optimal strategy.”
Mr Rengifo added that Perfect Blackjack is an innovative game “bringing something truly different to the live casino market and we have seen that it’s an entertaining and popular product.”
NetEnt debuted its live casino platform in 2013.
Its NetEnt Live product features a selection of some of the most popular traditional casino games, reimagined and designed to meet the growing demand for online gambling experience.
The games are broadcast live and around the clock with real dealers from NetEnt’s live casino studio in Malta.
During its first year of existence, NetEnt Live secured more than two dozens of partnerships to offer its live dealer casino experience to major online gambling operators.
NetEnt’s network of live casino clients has grown even more significantly since then.
Green Jade given green light
Online content developer and supplier Green Jade Games has been granted a business to business licenced by the Malta Gaming Authority.
Casino News Daily reports that Green Jade Games’ newly obtained licence will allow the company to supply its products to Malta-licenced online gambling operators that provide their services in regulated markets across Europe and beyond.
With its headquarters in Malta, Green Jade Games develops and supplies real-money arcade style games and slots for the international online gambling industry, including its flagship title Hammer of Fortune.
The game features a personalised player hammer that changes with every single spin and can be used by players to knock symbols off the reels.
As a result, players are thus offered a second chance to trigger cash pots and free spins.
News about Green Jade Games’ business to business licence by the Malta Gaming Authority arrives just days after it became known that the supplier has joined forces with gamification and real-time engagement expert CompetitionLabs to take player experience to the next level.
Under the terms of its partnership with CompetitionLabs, the online casino games developer will deploy its partner’s gamification tools and elements to its full suite of slots.
Said elements include missions, rewards, and achievements.
Hammer of Fortune would be the first game to go live with the features.
