Evolution Power Blackjack Strategy
As we have already mentioned, this game is a bit different than other versions of blackjack because all the 9s and 10 s have been removed.
What this means is that there are less cards on the 8 decks but also that you can’t play your usually blackjack strategy. Without 9’s and 10’s playing with the usual blackjack strategy charts are not useful at all.
Despite the fact that Evolutions has developed a Power Blackjack Strategy this is still not ideal for someone that wants to play with strategy. Power Blackjack strategy can give an RTP of 98.8% which is lower compared to classic blackjack strategy RTP at 99.6%.
So if you like to play with strategy this game might not be ideal for you. If on the other hand you are not strict with your blackjack strategy and you like to risk more to win more then this game ticks all the boxes!
