Unlimited Blackjack is a form of blackjack where an unlimited number of players can play the same hand. It can be found at Internet casinos using Ezugi software.
We assume the reader is already familiar with conventional blackjack rules. Below are the specifics and how Unlimited Blackjack differs from conventional blackjack.
- Eight standard decks are used.
- The dealer shall peek for a blackjack with an ace up but not a 10.
- If the dealer gets a blackjack started with a 10 up, the player will lose all money bet, including on doubles and splits.
- The dealer shall stand on soft 17.
- Double after a split is allowed.
- Surrender is not allowed.
- Play may split to only two hands.
- Split aces get one card per hand.
- Pairs of 2's, 3's, 6's, 7's, 8's, and aces will be spit automatically. The player may choose whether to play one or both hands after the split. Pairs of 4's, 5's, 9's, and 10's are never split.
The way this game is dealt is played, an unlimited number of players will play. The dealer will keep dealing cards to the player hand as long as somebody chooses to hit or the hand busts. Any players who choose to stand will not get any subsequent cards dealt to the player hand. Such cards that don't count to you will be shown in grey. Upon one of the pairs that is split, the player will be prompted whether he wants to play one or both hands. With any decision, the player has about five second to act. If the player does not act in time, the game will decide for the player what to do.
Based on my own analysis and the math report by Cindy Liu (which does not address the specific rules followed at the Ezugi casino), the house edge is 0.42%. The help files for the game claim a return of 99.56%, which equates to a house edge of 0.44%. You can decide for yourself who to believe.
