Hold'Em Blackjack combines the simplicity of traditional blackjack with the intensity of poker. The game is lunched and exclusively owned by Cryptologic and availiabel through all their existing licensees including William Hill casino, Intercasino and Littlewoods casino.

Hold'Em Blackjack is the brainchild of Andy Goetsch, VP of Poker Software at CryptoLogic as well a world-class poker player. Goetsch wanted to give blackjack a new angle and what better way than cross it with his game of choice, poker.

"For CryptoLogic, it's a simple yet exciting concept - powerfully executed. For players, it's a whole new entertainment experience. And for the world's blue-chip gaming brands, Hold'Em Blackjack is another way to keep players coming back for more."

Unlike traditional blackjack, the Hold'Em Blackjack prize pot is determined by player bets which in turn guarantees that a player wins every hand. The game consists of three betting rounds where bluffing and skill all come into play.

"Hold'em Blackjack pits players against each other, rather than the House, taking blackjack to a whole new level," said Andy Goetsch, VP, Poker Software Development for CryptoLogic. "Because blackjack is a familiar game to play, the learning curve for Hold'em Blackjack is very fast. After just a couple of hands almost anyone can be an expert."
