High Streak European Blackjack Casino Game
High Streak European Blackjack is one of Microgaming’s Gold Series of games and one of the over forty versions of blackjack this software provider offers.
These are some of the most authentic blackjack games you will find online with the added bonus of being able to record in-depth, in-play statistics. It is played with two decks of 52 regular cards and these are shuffled before every hand plays.
As the name suggest this is blackjack played with European rules and the “High Streak” is a side bet which pays for success in consecutive hands. In essence this may deliver a 10:1 payout as the player progresses through a chain of bonuses. The first win of the standard game will pay 1:1, and after this the High Streak feature triggers, again 1:1 is paid in the first High Streak game, and the second consecutive win pays 2:1, the third is 5:1 and the fourth consecutive win pays the player 10:1.
There is no late surrender option in this game, but it is easy to see why with this bonus feature. Only like pairs may be split, and this may only happen once, while multiple cards may be drawn to split aces. Double down on the first two cards if they of the value of 9, 10, or 11, with a bet which equals the original wager. Insurance will be paid at 2:1 and does not cover split hands or double down wagers. This game is a lot of fun and an exciting twist on the usual blackjack.
