The Playtech group of casinos are now adding a new game, 21 Duel Blackjack to their offerings. From August the new game  will gradually become available at all the Playtech casinos.

21 Duel Blackjack is played according to standard Blackjack rules with the exception of the communal cards, a concept that has both the player and the dealer basing their hand on the same two cards.

There’s also a side bet option to really notch up your winnings!
In addition to the main wager, there is an additional winning option in the form of a side bet.

21 Duel Blackjack is played with 6 decks.
As usual the basic aim is to have a point total higher than the dealer, but no higher than 21.
However, unlike standard Blackjack, all hands with a total of 21 are equal (Ace and Ten is the same as a three-card 21).

Mor Weizer, Playtech CEO commented: “These new games reflect Playtech’s efforts to frequently release high quality games to our licensees.”
