Be the Dealer Blackjack
The Be The Dealer blackjack player option allows you to choose from 3 different tables:
1 – Minimum bet of $2 / Maximum bet of $100
2 – Minimum bet of $5 / Maximum bet of $200
3 – Minimum bet of $25 / Maximum bet of $350
You can choose to play at a private table or play with others on a public table. It also gives you the option to play against a human dealer, when available, if so desired. There’s also a VIP option but this reviewer was not able to choose that option in the “play for fun” mode.
The speed of this blackjack game is just right and the graphics are easy on the eyes. The dealer’s voice is that of a beautiful Indian woman with a slight British accent who seemed to enjoy the reviewer’s company so much that she secretly slipped him her phone number and the time her shift ended on a drink napkin. Okay, so I’m lonely.
Here are the basics of Be The Dealer’s blackjack:
- 6 decks are used and shuffled after each hand
- blackjack pays 3-2 or 1.5x your bet
- dealer and player push on a tie
- dealer must hit on anything under 17 as well as a soft 17 (ace + 6)
- player can bet $1, $5, $25 or $100 depending on the table.
Be The Dealer offers you the unique option of being the dealer (hence the name). If you have ever sat down at a blackjack table in Vegas for 6 hours you will understand how this option gives you a slight advantage over being the player. Basic blackjack strategy is fairly simple once you get the feel for it but a lot of people will enter the game without this knowledge. It’s all about the odds!
In order to be the dealer, a player must accumulate enough dealer points through regular play. For each dollar bet as a player the casino will reward you with one dealer point. Once you have reached a certain amount of dealer points you can choose to be the dealer or exchange the points for cash. The casino will even give you 200% dealer points bonus on your first deposit!
Dealing at a public table.
The minimum amount of dealer points to play at a public table is calculated as such: 3(maximum number of players) * 3 (maximum number of hands)* (Maximum Bet + Casino commission for maximum bet). The Casino commission is 1.75% of the bets on the table and is calculated after each round.
Dealing at a private table.
The minimum amount of dealer point to play at a private table is calculated as such: 3 (maximum number of hands) * (Maximum Bet + Casino commission for maximum bet). The Casino commission is 1.75% of the bets on the table.
The calculation is a bit complicated but once you figure it out you will see how this gives you better odds of coming out ahead than playing as a player.
