If you've ever
wanted to learn how to play
Blackjack with some perfect
strategy, but never thought you had the "mathematical
gumption" to do so, there's a new online blackjack game
from Cantor Gaming that provides real-time coaching on
the best moves to make. Called StatJack, Cantor Gaming
says the game is not just good for beginner's.
Experienced players and strategists can also benefit
from the apparent card-counting abilities of Stat Jack.
Functions include a
real-time coaching system that recommends moves based on
the basic blackjack strategy, winning and losing
probabilities based on hands, percentage stats of other
players who have chosen the same option when dealt the
same hand, a "Card Tally" function - which as mentioned
- counts cards and shows how many of each value are left
in the shoe. Additionally, the software includes each
player's hand history, dealer stats and card histories.
The game also
offers some new bets, which I personally am not to sure
about in terms of how they play into the Basic Blackjack
Strategy. These new bets include a series of wagers that
can be made on the Dealer's hand, thus making the game
of Blackjack even more like its close cousin, Baccarat.
No doubt both games are very popular with players, so
whenever there's a new hybrid to hit the internet, it
usually gets the attention of the online gambling
As for Cantor
Gaming, they are no stranger to the internet betting
sector. The company is actually an affiliate of the
renowned financial services group, Cantor Fitzgerald and
started off in the betting business offering pari-mutuel
betting services in the U.S. - and ever since getting
their bookmaker's permit in the UK - offers their own
spread betting service (Spreadfair), an online casino
and a fixed odds betting product to Ladbrokes.
Cantor Gaming does
not accept U.S. players at any of their internet
properties, however, they are making some progress in
the remote gaming field having recently signed a
contract with Las Vegas Sands to offer a field trial of
"on-site" mobile gaming services to Venetian Casino
Resort and the Palazzo. Cantor may not be as prolific
and have as many online casino licensees as the leading
software developers in business, but they certainly
don't fall short of any credentials. In fact, you will
see a more in-depth review of Cantor Gaming on the
Online Casino Suite Software page in the near future.
