Here is another article about it: NetEnt to launch industry-first Perfect Blackjack with Rank Group.

I was hoping to find the exact rules of the game somewhere, but can't. Once it has a real money placement, I will be sure to write a full article about it.

Meanwhile, I think it's a good idea. Maybe they do this already, but I would suggest letting players adjust their strategy table, if they want. After the success of Face Up Pai Gow Poker, I could see a version of blackjack with the skill element stripped out capturing some of the market.

Hmm... The few pix of the game show it being played with a shoe. Can you vary your bets? Without a CSM it seems extremely vulnerable to counting, especially since you no longer have to consider how to play your cards. The only thing I can think of is that you're committed to a single bet for the entire shoe. On the other hand, consider this quote from the Casino Players Report game review....


With the cards being auto dealt, players can choose to stay in a hand or skip and wait until the next round with the click of a button.

Depending on how you interpret this sentence, it would suggest that you can sit out hands and pounce when the count is favorable. Yet they must have thought of this play.

So yeah, not enough data. Taken at face value from what we do know, however, it seems like a good deal AP or no.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

It's a trap!!!!

I have a feeling the terms and conditions will include something about anyone suspected of counting, team play or using a betting system will have their money confiscated at the sole discretion of management .

It's also half-shoed (in the picture)... so have fun with that variance and bankroll requirements to slam extremely hard in the fewer TC's you get... I wouldn't exactly say "extremely vulnerable" for these reasons.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
