The Next Generation of Social Blackjack!
Do you enjoy blackjack? Do you like a little friendly competition with your friends? Well so do we! But we've noticed some troubling issues with traditional and online blackjack, so we decided to develop Blackjack Battle to address these problems...
Problem 1: The Dealer Always Wins (in the long run)
Blackjack is a casino game, which means it is designed so that the house always has the edge. So unless you're counting cards, you're bound to lose over time. With Blackjack Battle, you're competing with your friends to see who fares better against the dealer, so it doesn't matter if you lose to the dealer. As long as your final score is better than your friend's, you win the gold!
Problem 2: Luck of the Draw
"Blackjack Tournament", along with many existing social online blackjack games, pits players against each other by putting them on the same table playing simultaneously from the same shoe against a single dealer. The problem here is that too often, a player "beats" another player based on better hands that get dealt. So it's a luck of the draw as opposed to any meaningful skill. Blackjack Battle sets up a more objective way to test your skills by having players play the identical shoe separately, and comparing the result. This way, every card is directly involved in the outcome of the player's score -- it's either part of the player's hand or the dealer's hand.
Problem 3: Waiting for Players
Blackjack Battle doesn't require your friend to be online. And you're not sitting around waiting for his/her turn to finish. You can challenge as many friends as you want, play the battles (you can go in and out of battles, it all gets saved!), and see who wins when your friend gets to it on his/her own time. With Blackjack Battle, you play on your own time, whenever you want.
Problem 4: Is the System Rigged?
With many online blackjack games, it seems like the dealer wins an awful lot, especially when it matters most (like when you bet big). Are these games rigged so that you'll have to buy more chips? We'll never know, but you'll never have to worry about rigged shoes with Blackjack Battle. For one, it's not about the dealer, it's about how your score compares to your opponent. Also, you can see the entire game history (hand by hand) for both you and your opponent, so you're welcome to see for yourself that you are in fact playing identical copies of the shoe.
The staff at Blackjack Battle is committed to delivering quality entertainment to our players. To meet that goal, it is important that we hear from the players, so if you have any comments/suggestions, please feel free to contact us @ firstname.lastname@example.org
