Lucky 7 Blackjack
Lucky 7 Blackjack by Amaya games plays just like a regular game of blackjack but has one bonus feature that normal blackjack does not. This comes in the form of a side bet. This will be discussed later in the article.
The art style used in Lucky 7 Blackjack is meant to mimic a real life blackjack table at a brick and mortar casino. As the player loads up the game for the first time, they are greeted with a friendly voice prompting them to place their bets. This is similar to the experience of playing blackjack at a physical casino and having a real dealer running the game.
The table itself is outlined by a black leather runner on the very outside of the table followed by a golden border and finally a straight grained mahogany runner. The table itself is a bright green and there is a nice gradient fade to indicate a light source above the table. There are three clusters of circles on the table. The middle cluster, which has the word bet in the bigger circle and seven in the smaller circle, is normally where the player could actually place their various bets. What’s different about this game from some other casino table games is the player can put bets on multiple hands at the same time. This means the player can place bets in any one of the six circles available.
Above the betting area, the player can see a banner with the words “insurance pays 2 to 1”. Above this, the player can see “Dealer must draw to 16 and stand on 17” as well as “Lucky 7 Blackjack Pays 3 to 2”.
In order to start Lucky 7 Blackjack, the player can place bets on any or all of the six places on the table made available. These are marked by either the word bet or the number seven. The player can select which chip they would like to use by selecting it in bottom right corner of the screen.
Once the player has placed their bet, they will then hit the deal button. The player is then given two cards face up and the dealer is given two cards with one face up. The player is then given the option to hit, stand or double down. After they have selected, the dealer’s second card is shown and they either hit or stand. Whoever gets closest to 21 without going over wins the hand. The blackjack hand goes to the dealer if they have an ace showing and the player stays in the round.
The side bet in this game has different payouts based on the first card dealt. If the first card dealt is a seven, the bet is paid at three to one. If the first two cards are unsuited sevens, the bet pays twenty five to one. If they are suited sevens, it pays fifty to one.
These bets pay out different amounts for different combinations all the way to the first four cards dealt are suited sevens. This bet pays five hundred to one.
