Whereas HD Live Black Jack has 7 seats at the table (and therefore potentially 7 players have to be dealt) at HD Live Common Draw Black Jack the players are all playing with the same (common) hand of cards as dealt (drawn) by the dealer. This means Common Draw is a much faster paced Black Jack game as only one hand is played and the players don´t have to wait for their turn.
In Common Draw Black Jack the table is as it was divided in two parts: there´s the upper part which is the realm of the dealer´s cards and the (common drawn) players cards, and the lower part which is the area of the individual player. In the latter area the player cards are graphically depicted and it will display any decisions as made by the individual player regarding the game (such as the height of the bet, an extra card added after a “hit”, a stand or a split).
After dealing the first two player cards (and one dealer card) each player at the table makes his / her own decisions on how to play the hand. For example, if the first two cards are two 8´s (thus a total of 16) one player might choose to split, another player might choose to stand and yet another player might buy another card. The dealer keeps on drawing player cards, just as long as all players have played their hands. After this the dealer plays his or her own hand to complete the hands of players that had chosen to stand.
HD Live Common Draw Black Jack is played with 6 decks of cards that are shuffled by a professional card shuffling machine as used in normal casino´s. There are 3 versions of the game, being Low, Standard and High limit Black Jack (referring to the minimum and maximum height of the bets, of course) and the game has a Return To Player (RTP) percentage of 99.5%.
