VIP Blackjack Live

Extreme Live Gaming have developed a number of live dealer blackjack games, and most of them are slightly different from the others in minor ways. VIP Blackjack Live’s main difference that makes it stand out from other live dealer blackjack titles is that this is something of a high-roller blackjack game. You aren’t going to want to sit down at this digital table unless you are suitably flush. VIP Blackjack Live is streamed from London, features a random shuffle of 8 decks, it takes side-bets and is mobile-friendly.

Placing bets

As we’ve said, you have to be suitably well-off to play this live dealer blackjack game. A minimum bet on this heavy-duty live dealer title will set you back at least £25 a hand. However, if you are super-flush, maximum bets can cost you around about £2,500 per game.

There is a house edge of 0.41% in this game, and that is only if you place a standard blackjack bet. It is possible to place side-bets in this game, and that will alter the house edge. Bet Behind, 21+3 and Perfect Pairs side-bets are permitted in this game, and that will naturally not only alter the house edge but also the amount you must wager, and what you can win with your side-bets.


Players can win at a rate of 3:2 for obtaining blackjack and beating the dealer. Landing any kind of win over the dealer will see players pocket wins at a 1:1 pay-rate. Doing so with an insurance bet on your side will see you bag wins worth 2:1. Players will also be able to pocket 25: 1 for a Perfect Pair side bet, as well as 12:1 for a Coloured Pair side-bet.


The rules to VIP Blackjack Live remain largely the same as other blackjack games, in that the dealer must stand on 17 and must draw to 16. The key thing about this game is that it costs substantially more than other live dealer blackjack games from Extreme Live Gaming, though to be fair, this is exactly the type of game that some big-spenders want to play.
