Majority Rules Blackjack

8 replies • Last post

Playtech launched an interesting game, Majority Rule Blackjack.. πŸ™‚

Two hands are dealt and players vote for hit, stand, double, split, etc πŸ™‚

This game seems to be open for everyone, not exclusive to certain casinos.

Would bad blackjack players might benefit from this game?

Interesting. So the game plays out based on how the vote go?

Yes, exactly, I just saw 5~6 hands, and the vote was better than my choice πŸ™‚

I think that this game is really brand new.

Ehh what's the point? Assuming the majority isn't smart enough to play perfect strategy it just seems like a good way to lose a lot more without having control over your own funds?

Yeah, that's my question, too.

This game is a mass game for all players, but, when I saw this game, there are only 20~30 players playing and voting. I think that it is too small number, even thought it is Monday.

Maybe, many have the same thought as you, and won't play this game:))

I like being able to control my own destiny. I'm not letting someone else's choice dictate the outcome of my play, even if they make the "right" decision.

I don't understand this either. If you know how to play basic strategy then at the very best everyone else will vote to play the same way - i.e. optimally. If the crowd doesn't then you're allowing them to force you into making bad choices that violate basic strategy which will cause you to lose more in the long run.

Possibly. If the crowd is smart and enough of them know basic strategy then they will force bad players to play better choices. But as above, if they are smart enough to know basic strategy they are also smart enough not to play this game.

So who knows? The game could be full of people who don't know what they are doing making random choices based on gut instinct. Maybe it could end up with a "wisdom of the crowd" type of situation but I wouldn't want to chance my money on it.

This game is not installed in many casinos.
And it seem that only dozen players usually are on the table πŸ™‚

I think that the merit of this game is the lower minimum of $1.

I would choose other regular table πŸ™‚
