New Hi Lo Blackjack Title from Realistic Games

How do you make one of the most popular games in the world even more exciting for casino enthusiasts? That is a question which most gaming software developers consider on a regular basis, and one of the latest answers from Realistic Games in the UK is to add a side bet that can be every bit as entertaining as the main game. This is the approach it has taken with its Hi Lo Blackjack offering, which – as the name suggests – is a Blackjack game with a Hi Lo side bet.


The new Hi Lo Blackjack concept is incredibly simple, and gives the player the chance to bet on whether their second card will have a higher or lower value than their first. There are other ‘Hi Lo’ Blackjack titles around, but most of them require the player to bet on whether the sum of the first two cards will fall into a Hi range (usually 13 or higher) or a Lo range (usually 12 or lower). This Hi Lo Blackjack game is therefore quite different from most existing online casino offerings, yet it is simple enough to be understood, played and enjoyed by a complete beginner.

Realistic Games is something of a UK gaming industry success story. Founded in 2002, it started out by providing games via third party providers, and in that manner delivered quality content to the likes of Bet365, Ladbrokes, Betfred, BetVictor and Stan James. It then decided to take the more direct route and began delivering its games to clients in its own right, striking up deals with many of its previous clients as well as with brand new ones.

On the announcement of the new Hi Lo Blackjack title, Andy Harris, who is Commercial Director for the company, explained the reasoning behind it. ‘As the revenues at many of the leading operators will attest, players love our Blackjack game. But we were very keen to build on its success by creating this simple, yet devilishly fun side bet. In offering lower pay-out multipliers and much higher return to player margins, we have gone against the typical side bet model. Yet this will produce more regular winning experiences, and lead to better player engagement as a result.’

The Hi Lo Blackjack title is already live at participating venues, including BetVictor Casino, so do check it out if you’re a fan of the game and good luck with your bets!
