HOW TO PLAY GRAVITY BLACKJACK
The base game of Gravity Blackjack is played like most live blackjack games online. It uses 8 standard decks of cards and industry-standard payouts, so anyone who already knows how to play twenty-one will immediately feel at home. If you don’t, you should start by checking out our beginner’s guide to blackjack.
To play, simply launch the game and use the chips at the bottom to place bets. Click or tap on the chips, and then any of the betting positions to make your wager. If any chips are present on the positions when the betting period ends, your bets are automatically accepted.
You don’t have to worry about table spots or other limitations, either. Gravity Blackjack from BETER live can welcome an unlimited number of players at any time. However, all players use the same hand of cards. As mentioned previously, though, you still have the usual options of Hit, Stand, Double, or Split. You can make these calls independently of what anyone else is doing. For example, if you decide to Stand while another player Hits, the next card dealt does not apply to your hand. This means that you can ultimately have different outcomes despite using the same cards.
Beyond that, the rules of Gravity Blackjack mostly mirror those on regular BETER Live blackjack tables, with a few minor differences. You can Double on any card and even after a Split, but you only draw one card afterwards. However, you cannot resplit and aren’t allowed to surrender early. The dealer always draws to 16 but stands on any 17, and you automatically win if you don’t bust after drawing 10 cards.
Gravity Blackjack Multipliers
The big defining feature of this BETER Live casino game is the side bet multipliers. They’re quite exciting but also easy to understand even for complete beginners.
After the betting period ends in any given round, one randomly selected side bet may receive a multiplier. If you have active bets on this particular side bet, any potential winnings are increased by the multiplier. These increases can be 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, or 10x the base payout.
There are four side bets to choose from, and all four can be affected by the multiplier. Blackjack side bets are already quite high-paying and volatile, but these multipliers can push the rewards up to thousands of times your stake.
So what side bets are available in Gravity Blackjack?
There are four options in total, and they’re quite easy to understand and use. We’ll go through them one by one.
- Perfect Pair wins if the first two cards you draw are of the same rank. Increased payouts are awarded if the two cards are also of the same colour or suit.
- 21+3 uses your first two cards and the dealer’s face-up card to make three-card poker hands. The stronger your hand, the bigger the payout.
- The Lucky Ladies side bet pays out if the cards dealt contain at least 1 Queen or if your first two cards total 20. Payouts can be increased if the two cards are of the same rank, suit, or both. You also get a massive payout if you draw a pair of Queens of Hearts.
- Dealer Bust wins if the dealer busts by going over 21. The more the dealer’s hand exceeds 21, the bigger the payout, up to a multiplied value of 3,000:1 – the biggest win in the entire game.
Note that the base payouts of all side bets in Gravity Blackjack are lower than what most tables offer. However, the fact that the winnings can be multiplied makes up for this fact. You can find out more in the Payouts section of this review.
