If you are up to par with the online casino reviews section here at OCS, you will likely recall one of our newest reviews - Rome Casino. The inaugural licensee of the newly launched Top Game software platform, Rome Casino is a hopeful contender in the U.S. facing online gambling industry, not to mention a brand-worthy platform for the Top Game platform itself.
The latest news to come out of Rome Casino is regarding a new game launch, which is none other than a multi-hand blackjack game. Allowing players to wager up to four hands at once, this one is sure to catch the attention of blackjack fans.
While it's true that online gamblers can certainly find multi-hand blackjack at other online casinos, especially at Microgaming powered sites, your options are far less if you reside in the U.S. The fact of the matter is that Top Game Software and Rome Casino make up a small handful of operators now catering to the U.S. market (Vegas Technology, Real Time Gaming, Rival Gaming and the newly launched Wizard Gaming Software make up the rest of the pack of U.S. facing online casino software developers).
Rome Casino's new multi-hand blackjack game allows splitting, insurance and doubling down, requires the dealer to stand on hard 17 and hit on soft 16, and pays 3 to 2 for Blackjack. In other words, Top Game's blackjack won't pay 6 to 5 for Blackjack, but rather, offers more favorable rules to get the Casinos Edge down - especially when basic strategy is used by the player.
As for the multi-hand aspect, most experienced blackjack players - especially those with hefty bankrolls - prefer to get in several hands at once. This allows them to work out the inevitable winning and losing fluctuations sooner and get closer to the player-friendly standard deviation that blackjack inherently offers. For the even more ambitious player, Rome Casino offers a multi-tab function that allows players to open several online casino games at once. And with extremely fast upload speeds, you can count on a seamless multi-tasking experience.
