When it comes to American Blackjack, you don’t get more famous than the Vegas Downtown variety. The game existed in a time before the glittering lights of the Vegas Strip. Now, it has become so popular that only versions of the variety have been created. Microgaming launched Vegas Downtown Blackjack Gold as part of their Gold series. The series offer players premium features and even higher quality graphics. You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stumbled into the lobby of a premium Vegas casino!

In this Microgaming take on the popular blackjack variety, your cards are dealt on a plush green table. The game has been reimagined as part of the Gold series, giving you access to Quick-deal features and an Auto-Re-bet function.

Vegas Downtown Blackjack Gold is a hole card game. This means that one of the dealer’s cards will be dealt face-down. So, you will only be able to use the first card as an indicator of whether to stand or hit. There is a little twist on this game that makes it differ from several other hole card games. In this game, the dealer is forced to draw on a soft 17. In many other games, the dealer stands on all 17s (hard or soft). A ‘soft’ 17 is a combination of cards which involved an ace.

Vegas Downtown game plays off 2 standard decks of card. This is a great advantage to players as it reduces the house edge, slanting the game more in favour of the player. Blackjack pays 3:2 and insurance pays 2:1.


Players can take the option to split their cards if they receive 2 cards of the same value. However, be aware that you can only split an ace once. After you split an ace, you will receive only 1 additional card. You can re-split up to 2 times, giving you a total of 4 hands.


You can choose to double down on any first two cards. Or, your other chance to double down comes around after you split. When you double down, you place a bet that your hand will beat the hand of the dealer with your next card. After you double down, your next card will stand automatically. You will not be given the chance to hit. The bet is equivalent to your regular bet. You cannot re-double down.


You have the opportunity to place an insurance side bet if you wish. This is insurance against the dealer landing blackjack. This is generally invoked when the face-up card of the dealer is an ace. The insurance debt is worth half of your regular bet. The ability to surrender is not engaged in this game.
