Blackjack Azure Game Review
Azure Blackjack is part of Pragmatic Play’s Azure Games Range that also contains Roulette Azure. These games titles are quite new and have only been launched in September 2020. With its Azure Games Pragmatic addressed some drawbacks to its formerly quite limited live games offering. Now players have a variety of tables and therefore seats and a great range of betting limits available. In additon, these Live Blackjack games have a couple of great features.
For the moment Pragmatic Play live games are only available at Yesplay but this will surely change over the upcoming weeks. Then Azure Blackjack and other Pragmatic Play live games titles will be available on more bookmakers.

How to Play Blackjack Azure
Blackjack Azure gives you the choice between 10 tables. The tables are labelled from A to J (e.g., Blackjack Azure A, Blackjack Azure B and so on). With this variety of tables comes a wide range of table betting limits.
The most affordable tables are Azure E an I. Both have a minimum table limit of R50 and a maximum table limit of R10,000. A good table for high rollers is Azure Blackjack G with limits from R1,000-R50,000. With varied betting limits there should be a table available that works for you and your betting preferences. As always, betting limits are set at operator level so these might vary between different bookmakers.
To start playing enter the Pragmatic game’s lobby and pick your preferred Azure table. Take your seat(s), decide your bet limit and get ready to play.
Azure Blackjack follows the standard blackjack rules. So the aim of the game is to come as close to 21 as possible (by taking additonal cards if needed) without going over. The game is played with 8 decks of 52 cards each. After the dealer has dealt the cards you have 4 options: Hit, Stand, Double Down and, in case you hold a pair, Split. You can split up to 2 times. The dealer must draw on 16 and has to stand on 17.
There are 7 seats available at each table and you can choose to take up more than one seat if you want to. Therefore, you can enjoy multi-hand blackjack live!
