British games developer Realistic Games has launched a proprietary Hi Lo Blackjack side bet to its multi-channel Blackjack.
Players are able to place a wager on whether their second card will be higher or lower than the first using the proprietary side bet game.
Commercial director, Andy Harris, said: “As the revenues at many of the leading operators will attest, players love our Blackjack game. But we were very keen to build on its success by creating this simple, yet devilishly fun side bet.
“In offering lower pay-out multipliers and much higher return to player margins, we have gone against the typical side bet model. Yet this will produce more regular winning experiences, and lead to better player engagement as a result.”
Realistic’s Blackjack product is already offered by well known operators such as bet365, BetVictor, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, William Hill, Coral, Gala Bingo, Boylesports, Stan James, Bede Gaming, Pocket Fruity and Spin Genie.
