Microgaming has released an upgraded version of the original Atlantic City Blackjack game; the gold version. The graphics of the game have been improved which gives the game a smoother feel and a nicer look than its predecessor. Even though this is a video table game, there is a quality to the graphics that gives is a more realistic feel; the way the table is set up, the colour scheme, and the audio, all contribute to the overall experience that is reminiscent of playing blackjack at the real Atlantic City.
The game features eight decks of cards when in play, and the stakes range anywhere from 100.00 to 1000.00. Cards are shuffled before every hand is dealt. Though this practice does give the house an extra edge, the various options such as split, late surrender, and double down makes sure that the gamer has some good options to keep the game going without losing too much money.
The option of splitting the hand can be used three times. The insurance option pays the gamer in the ratio of 3:2 while insurance pays 2:1. The late surrender option is a blessing in disguise to the gamers as they stand to lose only half of their wager even if they activate this option after the dealer has declared a blackjack.
A couple of the downsides of this game are that players can only bet on one hand in one game, and the game play is quite slow. However, the game does feature an ‘expert mode’ where the gamer can switch the game to Autoplay and Auto-Rebet. This means players don’t need to do very much while playing. The same bets and strategies will automatically be played, so the player doesn’t have to keep making these decisions and is able to play other games at the same time.
