Sonya Blackjack now gives players the option to place Side Bets.
21+3™ is a game based on a standard Blackjack game, with the addition of an exciting optional side bet which is based on a 3 card hand using the dealer’s one up card and the player’s two initial up cards to form a 3 card poker hand. This game sees two of the most popular casino card games merged into one! Its dual aspects make it a unique game to play.
Perfect Pairs™ is a casino table game based on a standard Blackjack game. As an added feature players have the opportunity to win bonus money based on their first two cards, by placing a Perfect Pairs™ Bet.
The dealer is modelled after a real dealer inheriting their gestures and interactions. She is a real professional at dealing and collecting cards, never missing a beat.
The defining feature of this Blackjack game is the interaction with other players. Up to 3 players will be able to sit at a single table with more having the option to stand at a table and Bet Behind (optional). Players can see how others bet and win!
The high quality 3D effects in this game make players feel as if they are in a casino. Every detail from the dealing of cards to placing chips on the table feels as natural as in real life.
Welcome to Yggdrasil’s Sonya Blackjack, the first of its kind, immersive casino experience!
There are 6 decks of 52 card per deck which make up the ‘shoe’
The entire shoe is reshuffled at the end of each round
Number cards use the face value
The Jack, Queen and King are worth 10 points
The Ace is either 11 points or 1 point depending on which value is more beneficial
HOW TO WIN
The objective of the game is to get 21 points or closest to it without going over (Busting)
A Blackjack Hand (Ace plus any 10 point card) wins over any other 21 point hand
A Push or tie (player and dealer have the same amount of points, including a Blackjack) returns the Bet to the player
The game is played against the dealer only
