Rank Group first to launch NetEnt’s Perfect Blackjack
NetEnt is set to launch an industry-first live blackjack product with Perfect Blackjack at Grosvenor Casinos in the coming months. Perfect Blackjack is a new live casino blackjack game, allowing you to be dealt cards according to the perfect blackjack strategy leading to a RTP of 99.5%!
NetEnt and the Rank Group
It was in June 2016 that NetEnt signed a first license agreement with The Rank Group Plc, one of the largest gaming companies in Europe with a strong market presence in the UK. Thanks to this first customer agreement, some of the most popular NetEnt Games including Gonzo’s Quest™ and Starburst™ became available to the Rank Group’s online casinos (Grosvenor Casinos and Meccabingo) in August 2016.
The Rank Group has been entertaining the British since 1937 and even though the company was initially involved in the cinema and motion picture industry, it changed course in 2006. Change, off course, lead to the company becoming UK’s largest casino operator, driving the British casino market through the Grosvenor Casinos and Mecca. The first is known as the largest land-based casino operator while Mecca is known as one of the leading bingo operators in the UK.
More than 2 years later, this partnership led to a brand-new live casino experience that will steel the hearts of many existing blackjack fans while it has been built to target blackjack dummies as well.
Perfect Blackjack is for everyone!
Perfect Blackjack is a complete new Live Casino experience that truly live up to its name. NetEnt’s Perfect Blackjack will allow you to be dealt cards according to the perfect blackjack strategy which basically means you don’t need to be a blackjack expert neither do you need to know the blackjack strategy. This way of dealing the cards results in the house edge being cut down to 0.5% with the Return to Player (RTP) increasing to an incredible 99.5%.
At ICE 2019, visitors had the chance to enjoy the new Live Blackjack game that has been developed in cooperation with Rank Group. Therefore, Perfect Blackjack will initially be available exclusively at Grosvenorcasinos.com.
“We are delighted to launch this innovative new game and excited to deliver an educational game to our customers and eliminate the boundaries of trying Live Casino. We have been working closely with NetEnt to develop Perfect Blackjack and we’re confident it will be a huge hit with both new and seasoned players alike,” comments Richard Walker, Head of Live Casino, Rank Group.
Players at this online casino should feel lucky to be the first to enjoy Perfect Blackjack! Not being a great blackjack player myself, I can’t wait for this live blackjack game to become available at all NetEnt live casinos!
It’s not only the increased payout of 99.5% that attracts me, but also the element of speed added as you are automatically dealt cards according to the perfect Blackjack strategy. In Perfect Blackjack, you pre-select whether you want to auto-split or double down according to the blackjack strategy.
With the addition of multi-seat and multiple players per box, Perfect Blackjack allows full scalability and flexibility as you can decide to auto play hands as well as sit out hands and join in again when you think the time is right.
“Perfect Blackjack truly is an industry-first for live casino, and we are certain that this game will appeal to all levels of players. Whether you’re a seasoned player wanting to sit back whilst being dealt flawlessly, or if you’re a beginner who wants an intro to blackjack and its strategy,” says Andres Rengifo, Director of NetEnt Live.
While Perfect Blackjack will be exclusively launched at the Grosvenor Casinos in the upcoming months, it might take a while before we’ll see this new live blackjack experience at other Live Casinos. This while it’s not common for the live blackjack to be available as a free casino game. However, the NetEnt games section offers you a chance to find out more about the NetEnt live casino games without logging into an online casino. If you like what you see, you can proceed to play the games with real money at one of the NetEnt Casinos listed on NetEntCasinos.com.
