Microgaming’s Big Five Blackjack Gold refers to the fun it crams into 5 decks of cards. Only available in the Gold Series, this game uses the best of Microgaming blackjack technology and is available in both single and multi-hand versions.

For those of you who are familiar with Microgaming’s general blackjack rules, this game doesn’t present anything too unexpected. Here’s the general idea:

  • Dealer is not allowed to peek and must hit at soft 17.
  • No restrictions on doubling down.
  • 3 splits are allowed from a single hand (for a 4-hand total). Aces can be split once with one card given to each before a Stand is imposed.
  • 10-value cards are equal in terms of a split.
  • Early surrender (the act of raising the white flag prior to a dealer’s hole card reveal—for half the wager penalty) is available in this game except when the Dealer shows an Ace.
