Many of our members at Dazzle Casino like to play card and table games, and now, you can enjoy the latest addition to our exciting selection in the form of European Blackjack by Microgaming and Switch Studios.
For UK and European players, European Blackjack is one of the most popular versions of online blackjack, and it's also an excellent choice for beginners as the rules are simple to pick up.
You can play it with real money or learn the ropes free-of-charge by choosing to play it in demo mode. Most impressive of all is that this compelling card game offers an RTP of 99.60%.
Our Verdict: Switch Studios has only been working alongside Microgaming for a few months, yet the partnership has already produced two thrilling offerings - European Roulette and American Roulette. However, European Blackjack is the first card game to appear as a result of the new collaboration.
The graphics are sharp, the choice of stakes vary sufficiently to allow every kind of player to get involved, and the RTP is particularly impressive.
Design: When you load European Blackjack, you're presented with a blackjack table which does a great job of emulating the blue baize that's often used for table games in land-based casinos.
The name of the game appears in the centre of the table, and underneath it, you can see three pieces of information. Firstly, the game pays 3 to 2. Secondly, the rules dictate that the dealer must stand on all 17s. Thirdly, insurance bets pay 2 to 1.
At the bottom of the screen, there's an area where you can place your chips by selecting a chip size from the bottom left and dragging it onto the betting area. You can choose from the following stake sizes: £1, £2, £5, £10, £20, £25, £50, £100, and £200.
If you change your mind or make a mistake when placing your bet, simply click on the "Clear" button at the bottom-centre, or if you're ready to begin, just click the button marked "Deal."
At the top-right of the game screen, there are two buttons that appear next to your current bet. The first toggles the sounds on and off while the second loads the help page.
The drop-down menu on the left-hand side includes the game rules, help page, and settings. The settings include turbo mode, game sounds, dealer voice, and enable sounds.
Wild Symbol: As this is a card game and not an online slot, there is no wild symbol, and the same goes for the scatter symbol.
Bonus Features: European Blackjack doesn't offer any bonus features, but instead, it allows you to improve on your existing blackjack skills or learn the ropes as a newcomer to the game.
