New Live Dealer Game Side Bet Feature from Playtech Out Now

Published: September 9, 2016

On September 1st, Playtech launched 21+3™ Live Casino Blackjack which can now pay up to 100 times your original side bet. This is a new Side Bet Feature from Playtech which basically combines the perks of poker with one of the world’s most loved card games. The 21+3 Blackjack Side Bet is based on the dealer’s initial face up card and also on each player’s initial two cards.

If these three cards form a winning poker hand, you will be awarded the side bet payout with enhanced odds. You can also still place money on the Perfect Pairs Side Bet AND on the new 21+3 Side Bet with odds ranging from as little as 6:1 up to the highest odds of 100:1. The types of winning poker hands that you can end up with include a straight, a flush, three-of-a-kind, a straight flush or suited three-of-a-kind.

“The 21+3 side bet is a great addition to the classic live casino Blackjack game and puts the excitement of poker into every hand,” said Playtech’s Head of Live Casino, Kevin Kilminster. “It will appeal both to those players who are familiar with either card game, as well as new customers who have never played Blackjack before, and we’re delighted to offer even more chances to win,” added Kilminster.

Most Playtech casinos have added this new Side Bet Feature and when you launch a Live Dealer Blackjack Game from Playtech at any of our top-rated Playtech casinos, you should be able to see this new betting option button towards the bottom right hand of the game window. If you don’t want to see these betting options, simply click on the Side Bet button and then both the PP (Perfect Pairs) Side Bet and the 21+3 Side Bet options will disappear from the tables.
