Spanish Thrills, Hotrod Skills And Batty Squirrels In Latest Microgaming Releases For August.
Blackjack games are at the heart of Microgaming's latest set of game releases for August. By popular demand comes SPANISH 21 MULTI-HAND BLACKJACK
on the acclaimed Viper software platform, which makes the whole gaming experience more enjoyable and, with a little luck, more rewarding for players. Full colour graphics and logically placed controls make for a fast-paced, full on time at the table.
Played as a hole card game with eight Spanish card decks consisting of 48 cards each (the regular 52 cards without the four tens), the new game is a faster paced multi-hand version of the popular Spanish Blackjack, giving players the option of betting on up to 5 hands.
There is a player payout bonus whenever players reach 21 (hence the name), with the amount dependent on the number of cards taken to get there, and on condition they have not doubled down.
Players will be offered the Insurance option where the Dealer is holding an Ace, and once the Dealer has checked for Blackjack, the Insurance bet is resolved. This is also a Hole Card Game: when the Dealer has a ten or an Ace card showing, he checks for Blackjack. If the Dealer has Blackjack the game is over.
For those looking for the ultimate online blackjack gaming thrill, look no further than Microgaming’s GOLD SERIES
. Again on Viper, it takes blackjack gambling on the Internet to new levels of smooth and speedy play, beautifully executed graphics, digital quality sound effects and music, together with valuable player aids, controls and tools in the software.

Once play begins, the appearance of articulate icons, card flips and chip movements will entertain and impress players and give the skilled a real chance to win big. All the rules for this game-style are ready to hand, and the player interactive controls are clear and well positioned.
