Blackjack Tables at Mr Green
The selection of live dealer blackjack games at Mr Green leaves a bit to be desired as it relates to the quantity of tables on offer. When it comes to the software providers, however, Mr Green uses the two biggest names in the industry — Evolution Gaming and NetEnt. At peak hours, there will be only a few more than ten live tables running, but if we are being completely honest this is, truly, enough for most people.
What’s more, they have Mr Green-branded tables. What this means is that, while other sites provide live dealer tables that are populated by players who have accounts at a number of different online casinos, Mr Green’s own tables are populated only with players who have Mr Green casino accounts. For most players, this adds even more credibility. Even better is the fact that Mr Green’s tables are supported by Evolution, which is arguably the best live dealer blackjack provider around.
Evolution Live Dealer Blackjack at Mr Green
In terms of quantity, Evolution makes up the overwhelming majority of live dealer blackjack games at Mr Green. There are 13 available tables and of those 13, 10 are produced and supported by Evolution. Something we must mention is that when it comes to the actual quantity of Evolution tables, there are more than just ten. Upon selecting a table, you are sometimes redirected to a Evolution-specific page that, in addition to the Mr Green tables, presents you with all of the other Evolution live dealer tables that are currently running. So, while it may appear as though there are only ten tables at first glance, you will actually find well over 20 tables in total. This is a bit confusing, but at the end of the day it is worth mentioning that there will almost never be a time when all tables are full.
There are five Mr Green-branded tables, four of which are in English and one that utilizes German-speaking dealers. The Mr Green tables are clearly identified in the live casino lobby, but in addition to that you will see the Mr. Green logo on each of these tables as well. The Mr Green live dealer blackjack tables all cap bets at €1,000, however minimum bets will be either €5 or €10. The user interface for the Mr. Green tables are none too dissimilar from what you will experience while playing one of Evolution’s generic live blackjack games.
First and foremost, it is worth mentioning that you will be hard-pressed to find a software provider that offers clearer and smoother streams than those supported by Evolution. Besides that, the user interface is simple in that it is comprised of a collapsible chat window, betting options, and some other tools such as volume and settings buttons. In the background, you can see and hear some of the other Mr Green blackjack and roulette tables, which gives players the real casino experience. We found that the private tables are typically filled with players such that only a seat or two will remain open, and sometimes there will be no seats open at all.
If you find that the Mr Green tables are overcrowded, no need to worry because there are plenty of other tables to choose from. Apart from the lack of any logos or signage, the gameplay experience derived from the generic Evolution tables is exactly the same as what you will get from the casino-specific tables. Some players may prefer these other tables due to the increased betting ranges available. While Mr. Green games have maximum bets that are capped at €1,000, some of the other tables offer maximum wagers as high as €2,500, €5,000, and even €10,000. The minimum wager amounts on these tables range from €5 and €10 to as high as €1,500 and even €2,000. At the end of the day, there is no shortage of betting ranges nor tables, so there will always be Evolution live dealer games for you to play.
Finally, most of the Evolution games are the classic game of blackjack everyone knows and loves, but there are a few exceptions to this. Blackjack Party and Fiesta Blackjack, which bring a fun party atmosphere to the traditional game we know and love. With music playing and multiple dealers, Blackjack Party really livens up what can be a vanilla game. Fiesta Blackjack is very similar, with the main exceptions being that there is only one dealer and he or she will be Spanish-speaking.
NetEnt Live Dealer Blackjack at Mr Green
NetEnt is definitely one of the top-tier live blackjack software producers out there, but the selection at Mr Green is quite limited. In total, you will only find about three total tables supported by NetEnt software. The first thing you will notice about the user interface at NetEnt tables is that the background is nothing more than a simple green screen. You will hear other dealers and games, but the only thing you will see is an elegant, albeit artificial, background. This in no way takes away from the quality of the game but is just a different experience than what you will get from other software providers. As far as betting ranges are concerned, the NetEnt tables offer a range of €5-€2,000.
Being that there are only a handful of NetEnt tables at Mr Green, there is not much more to mention. You will have no problems with these games, the tables are quite full, but unlike Evolution games, if a table or two is fully populated, you will have to wait for a seat to clear before you can play. It is abundantly evident that NetEnt plays second fiddle to Evolution games.
There are a few different sign-up bonuses available, but if you plan on playing live dealer blackjack at Mr Green there will only be one option for you, and that is the Live Casino Bonus. This bonus works in conjunction with all first deposits of at least €20 and allows you to rreceive up to €50 in cash back from losses incurred at table games. You will also be eligible to receive five free spins per day for the first 20 days following that initial deposit, so that is something worth mentioning as well.
Though there is a 35x wagering requirement tied to winnings stemming from the aforementioned free spins, the cash back is exactly what it sounds like and does not feature wagering requirements of any kind. By simple playing (and losing), you will receive cash back up to a maximum of €50. This is not the most robust sign-up bonus you will find, but it is up there with the simplest.
One of the more difficult endeavors for us was figuring out the limits on deposits. While we know that the minimum allowable deposit is €20, figuring out the maximum was not so straightforward. First and foremost, the deposit options available to you include credit card, e-wallet (Neteller, Skrill), direct bank transfer, and paysafecard. Generally speaking, the maximum allowable deposit is €10,000, however we understand most folks are not going to be playing with that much money. Simply put, you must understand that deposits less than €20 will not be recognized.
As far as withdrawals are concerned, the minimum amount of money that can be withdrawn is €30. The maximum amount will depend on the type of withdrawal executed, as there are quite a few different methods. Withdrawal options available to players include credit cards, bank transfers, Trustly, Skrill, Neteller, Paypal, and paysafecard. Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed in just how difficult it was to ascertain information on withdrawals and deposits. While most other sites neatly lay this information out on one or two pages, Mr Green scatters it in different parts of the site.
Mobile Live Dealer Blackjack at Mr. Green
As you will find with most other sites that boast NetEnt and Evolution live dealer software, Mr Green’s mobile site (and app) does not differ too dramatically from the desktop version. In fact, as far as the looks of the user interface are concerned and the number of games on offer, there are no differences at all. What this means for players is that the experience is the same across all platforms, something that makes life incredibly easy.
As we always say, it is recommended that you play live dealer blackjack at Mr. Green on a tablet because of the larger screen size you will be dealing with, but it is important to ounderstand that these games can just as easily be played on any smartphone, whether it be an Android or iOS device.
Why Choose Mr. Green?
One of the biggest reasons why players choose to play live dealer blackjack at Mr. Green actually has nothing to do with the live casino at all. As we mentioned above, Mr. Green is renowned as being one of the best online casinos in the world.
Understanding the trust and prestige that comes with this, it is easy to see why traditional casino players have chosen to remain at Mr. Green for their live games rather than skipping over to another site that might offer a larger quantity of tables and/or software providers. Additional reasons why players might choose Mr. Green are as follows:
- Live dealer blackjack games are offered in English, German, and Spanish
- There are four or more Mr. Green-branded tables available at any given point in time, which is much more than you will find at most other sites.
- Mr. Green has a mobile app that makes playing games on the go easier than ever before. Very few other online casinos can boast their own, downloadable mobile client.
