Where to play
Blackjack Party by Evolution Gaming is a Blackjack game with a little party twist to it. It is pretty much played the exact same way as your standard Live Blackjack game and even offers the same betting options. The big different between the two would be that the presentation of the game is a little different as the the goal of the live dealers is to entertain the players, making the game a little more lively. Evolution Gaming may have created the social game of the decade with this live casino title where two hosts make sure to keep you and the other players entertained while you play. The game was released back in December of 2014 and happens to be the only live casino game show that offers both a presenter and co-presenter at once.

How To Play
Start by placing a bet through the betting box, followed by every player receiving two cards from the dealer who will also receive a card. Any players who immediately achieve Blackjack will receive a payout if the dealer's card is not an Ace or 10 valued card. All other Pair Bets will also be settled. In each turn, every player will have to decide whether or not to draw more cards. Players will then have a couple of different options available.
You will be able to double, meaning you may place an extra bet of up to, but not over your original bet if your first two cards total amounts to 9, 10 or 11. When doubling you will receive one additional card only. Another option is to split any pair of the same value to create two separate hands. You won't be able to get Blackjack on a split hand as they count as 21. Your third option is to draw more cards, but remember that you don't want to go over 21. The final choice is to stand on your two-card total.
Once all the players have made their decisions, the dealer will complete their hand and will have to pick another card if their hand totals 16 or less or has a soft total of 17. The dealer will have to stand on a hard 17 or more. You will win if your total is higher than the dealer's hand or if the dealer “busts”. If yours and the dealer's total is the same or if the dealer has a total of 22 you will have a standoff. The exception here is Blackjack, which simply means you haven't won or lost.
