John Carew Blackjack Review

This is a 6-deck Blackjack variant that accepts wagers from €1 and €500. The game uses standard rules with the main objective being getting to 21 or closest to it without exceeding it. Up to three players can join the table and enjoy a highly engaging gaming experience thanks to high-quality 3D graphics. The animated dealer rendered to look like former Norwegian international, Rosenborg, Valencia, Lyon and Aston Villa footballer John Carew hosts the game.

The game offers an Even Money bet allowing the player to quit the round when they have a Blackjack and the dealer has an Ace. If it turns out that the dealer gets a Blackjack, the player wins 2:1 on this bet. Insurance is also available and the dealer stands on a soft 17. Players are allowed to check the history of previous rounds and adjust settings including sound effects, dealer’s voice and ambient sound. The main game has a 99.54% RTP while an Insurance RTP is 92.60%.
