NetEnt’s Blackjack Pro, or Blackjack Professional Series (as it is sometimes known), was one of the first truly big RNG (random number generator) blackjack table games to go live and remains a hot title today. Well over a decade after it first went live, the game continues to impress with its tidy graphics, simplistic gameplay, generous multi-hand options and professional nature. Of course, you could probably have guessed all that from the title. However, it is worth pointing out that Blackjack Pro is not for the newbies amongst you. It is a high roller RNG table game with costly stakes, making it a niche game for serious bettors.
Betting and Rules
As touched on, NetEnt’s Blackjack Pro is aimed at dedicated blackjack players and high rollers in particular. A minimum bet in this game is going to set you back at least 25.00 a hand, with maximum stakes capped at 500.00 a pop. Naturally, that won’t be everybody’s cup of tea. Fortunately, there are low roller and medium roller versions of the game for you to try, and while they are no less professional and are played in the same way, they aren’t “this game”.
In NetEnt’s Blackjack Pro, the dealer must stand on all seventeens and draw to at least sixteen. The payouts are predictable, at 1:1 for any old win, 2:1 for an insurance bet, and 3:2 for successful blackjack wins. The game’s decks are shuffled every round, and the low house edge (99.59%) is above what many of its counterparts offer.
Blackjack Pro doesn’t come with any side-bets, which is a touch disappointing. However, NetEnt’s logic is that pro blackjack players aren’t stupid enough to fall for side-bets, so why bother including them? As mentioned, there is a multi-hand option here, and you can play up to three hands at once, so that is at least something. This is a blackjack game that isn’t for amateurs. The high table limits mean that only serious bettors should consider giving the game a run for its money.
