HOW TO PLAY MEGA FIRE BLAZE BLACKJACK
Most of the time, Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack works like any other one-to-many variant of the game you would find in a casino. By ‘one-to-many’, we’re referring to the fact that there is no limit to the number of players that can join the table at one time. However, all players share two hands and the cards in them. Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack allows you to play with up to two hands at a time, but all of your decisions are independent of anyone else.
For example, if you decide to Stand, the round is over for you. Any cards drawn after the fact do not affect the outcome of your round in any way. This also means that Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack is very affordable for live blackjack standards with a $1 minimum bet.
As far as Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack rules are concerned, the main game is very similar to classic Vegas-style blackjack. This means that the dealer has to stand on soft 17s, and doubling and splitting are allowed. You can also double after a split, but you can’t split the same hand twice.
MEGA FIRE BLAZE BONUS
The distinguishing feature of this game is the special Mega Fire Blaze bonus bet. It generally works like any other blackjack side bet. That means that you have to use a separate stake if you want to benefit from it. Also, any multipliers secured via the bonus bet affect only the stake you placed on it, and not the money you used for the main bet. Speaking of which, you can’t participate in the Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack bonus round if you don’t place a main blackjack bet first.
So how does the bonus work in Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack? If certain conditions are met, every player with an active Bonus bet gets to participate in a bonus round.
These conditions work with a point system. You need 5 points to kick off the bonus at all. Additionally, more points increase your Bonus Level, which in turn increases the potential for profit.
Points are accumulated in three ways. Player hands with a rank total of 14 earn 2 points (6 if both hands total 14.) Any dealer Aces also award up to 6 points. If the dealer draws more than 4 cards, the players can get up to 12 points.
The bonus game itself works like a Hold & Win feature from online slots. You get a grid with segments that spin and any bonuses that stick to the board are yours to keep. If you spin three times in a row and don’t hit any multipliers, the round ends and your bonus bet stake is multiplied by the result.
Higher Bonus Levels mean that you get more segments, more multipliers, and a bigger maximum multiplier. Check the Payouts section of this review for more info.
OTHER SIDE BETS
Beyond that, Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack also offers two standard side betting options. These are the 21+3 and Perfect Pairs side bets, which are extremely common on live blackjack tables.
- 21+3 allows you to bet that your first two cards and the dealer’s upcard will be able to make a three-card poker hand. The stronger the hand, the better the payout.
- Perfect Pairs wins if the first two cards you draw are of the same rank. The reward is better if the two cards are also of the same rank/color.
