Saucify Blackjack

Blackjack Software Saucify

Launched in 2006, Saucify is a gaming provider that's been around for over a decade. They originally opened as BetOnSoft, but changed their named in 2014.

Saucify produces a wide range of online casino games, including slots, table games, and video poker. Their games are competitive with the industry in terms of graphics, features, and playability.

The same can be said of their blackjack games, which stand up well to what other software providers' offer.

What is it that makes Saucify's blackjack variations worth playing? Are there any weaknesses to their products?

Find out as we discuss general aspects of their blackjack games, what variations are offered, where you can find these games, and more information on Saucify.

General Aspects of Saucify Blackjack

Standard and Elite Versions

As we've seen with other online casino software companies, Saucify offers different variations for their table games.

The main differences between the Standard and Elite versions are that the latter offers improved graphics, better sound quality, and higher table limits.

As for the betting, the Standard versions allow you to bet anywhere from $1 to $250 per hand. The Elite version is better for high rollers since it lets you wager between $10 and $1,000 per hand.

Chip denominations for the Standard games include: $1, $5, $10, $25, and $50.

Chip denominations for the Elite variations include: $10, $25, $50, $100, and $200.

Graphics

Saucify is among the industry's top providers when it comes to blackjack graphics. Their tables are designed with the intent of making you feel like you're really sitting at a land based blackjack table.

We especially like the intricate details they put into each table, from light reflecting off the table edges, to chip stacks being marked with the appropriate denotations.

As for graphical differences between the Standard and Elite versions, we don't see any major changes.

The biggest change is that the Standard games feature green felt, while the Elite variations have blue felt. Blue is a sharper color for these games, but they're coming in at a higher resolution than the Standard green tables.

Overall, we don't see any compelling reasons why you should choose the Elite games if you're not comfortable wagering $10 or more.

Table Layout

One unique aspect that we noticed immediately about the Saucify table layouts is that the chips are on the left side of the table. Most blackjack games we've played feature chips on the right hand side.

Another distinctive element is the anchor graphics on the top left and right areas of the table. We're not sure what the reasoning is behind these embellishments, but they're interesting nonetheless.

Everything else fits with a standard online blackjack table layout. Your bets are placed in the center spot of the table, and your cards are dealt in the same area.

Rules on blackjack payouts and the dealer hitting on a soft 17 are shown in the center of the screen. You'll also see the table's minimum and maximum bets located above the table rules.

Desktop & Mobile Platforms

Saucify blackjack games are only featured at online casinos that offer instant play (PC & Mac), mobile compatibility, and downloadable software.

To use the mobile versions, visit the Saucify casino of your choice (discussed later) and create an account. Once you have an account, you can choose your desired blackjack variation and start playing.

No Multi Hand Variations

Most casino software providers offer multi hand variations, many of which let you play 3 hands or more per round. But Saucify is one of the few companies that don't offer multi hand play.

This is fine by our standards because we've never understood the purpose of multi hand blackjack in online play.

Internet blackjack moves fast enough that you can quickly play hundreds of hands per hour, especially if you use the same bet size.

Some players enjoy having the extra action in each round. But again, online blackjack plays so quickly that you're merely exposing yourself to the house edge more by playing extra hands.

Return to Player RTP

If there's one reason to play Saucify blackjack, it's definitely the return to player on their games. They offer high returns for almost all of their blackjack variations.

The best is single deck blackjack, which offers 99.77% payback when perfect strategy is used. Most software providers don't go beyond the 99.6% range, making Saucify impressive in this regard.

Software Security

According to their website, Saucify has an imbedded monitoring solution that's capable of protecting and identifying fraudulent and money laundering practices.

They also offer a dedicated security team to help prevent any fraudulent practices and theft of your sensitive information.

Saucify also works with casino partners that insist on age verification to ensure players are adhering to the laws in their jurisdiction.

Self-Exclusion

Upon request, Saucify offers self-exclusion tools that you can use to close an account for a specified time period, ranging from one day to 12 months.

Once you use self-exclusion, your account won't be opened under any circumstances until the specific time period is up.

Saucify Blackjack Games

Saucify offers four different blackjack games in Atlantic City, European, single deck, and Vegas Strip blackjack.

Each of these options comes in the Standard and Elite versions, which technically equals 8 games. But we can't see classifying these as different games altogether.

Below you can see details on the four main blackjack variations offered by Saucify.

For the purpose of explaining Saucify blackjack as thoroughly as possible, we've gone into great detail regarding the single deck version. The other three games also offer detail, but nothing that rehashes the single deck information.

Single Deck Blackjack
Rules

As is a common theme in online blackjack, the rules of each Saucify variation don't perfectly match the land based versions. But this is a good thing in many cases because it boosts the return to player.

Below you can see the most notable rules regarding Saucify's single deck game:

  • Natural blackjack (21 on first two cards) pays 3:2 on your original bet.
  • The dealer hits on a soft 17.
  • You can double down after splitting.
  • You can only double down on totals of 9 to 11.
  • You can only split hands once.
  • Re splitting aces isn't allowed.
  • The dealer peeks for a blackjack if their up card is an ace, 10, or face card.
  • No surrender.
  • 1 deck is used.
Return to Player

As mentioned before, RTP for Saucify's single deck blackjack is 99.77%, which is outstanding when compared to the industry.

You might not expect such a high RTP, given all the restrictions on doubling down, re splitting aces, and surrender.

But the key is the single deck in combination with 3:2 natural blackjack payouts. Going from the standard 6 deck game to a single deck lowers the house advantage by 0.56%.

Many land based casinos offer single deck games, but the catch is that you're only paid 6:5 on a natural blackjack. This difference increases the house edge by 1.39%.

How to Play

If you've played online blackjack before, then you should have no trouble picking up any of Saucify's versions. But we'll still go over the rule basics here for anybody who's new to the process:

  • Choose your desired chip denomination(s), and they'll be placed in the center of your table section. The Standard version allows you to use a $1 chip denomination, while the Elite version's minimum bet is $10.
  • Click Deal to receive your cards. Upon getting your cards, you'll have the following options: hit, stand, split (if a pair), and double down (if total is 9 to 11).
  • At the conclusion of the hand, you can either choose to place a new bet or Rebet. The latter option sees you make the exact same wager.

Assuming you have any further questions, Saucify offers a Help section that explains the rules of each game. They also offer an Options section that allows you to tailor a game to your specific preferences.

Betting

The betting process for each game is the same.

You choose the chip denomination that you want to use and it'll appear on the table. An onscreen display will show how large your bet is, and you can click chips to remove them from the table when changing your mind.

Once you're satisfied with the wager size, click Deal to begin a hand.

When the round is over, you'll have the option to Rebet or choose a new wager. In the latter case, you go through the same process described above.

Strategy

Luckily, we were able to find exact strategy for Saucify's single deck game. Here's a look at what you should do in each situation based on your cards and the dealer's up card.

  • Your total is 4to 8: always hit.
  • Your total is 9: hit when dealer's up card is 7 to A.
  • Your total is 10: double down when dealer's up card is 2 to 9. Hit when their card is 10 to A.
  • Your total is 11: always double down.
  • Your total is 12: hit when dealer's up card is 2 to 3 and 7 to A. Stand when their card is 4 to 6.
  • Your total is 13 to 16: stand when dealer's up card is 2 to 6. Hit when their card is 7 to A.
  • Your total is 17 to 21: always stand.
  • Your cards are A2 through A6: always hit.
  • Your cards are A7: stand when the dealer's up card is 2 to 8 and A. Hit when their card is 9 to 10.
  • Your cards are A8 through A10: always stand.
  • You have a pair of 2's: split when dealer's up card is 2 to 7. Hit when their card is 8 to A.

  • You have a pair of 7's: split when the dealer's up card is 2 to 8. Hit when their card is 9 to A.
  • You have a pair of 8's: always split.
  • You have a pair of 9's: split when the dealer's up card is 2 to 6 and 8 to 9. Stand when their card is 7 and 10 A.
  • You have a pair of 10 value cards: always stand.
  • You have a pair of aces: always split.
Elite Version

As discussed before, we don't see many notable differences between the Standard and Elite versions.

The same holds true with single deck blackjack, which has a blue felt (instead of green) and a $10 minimum bet (instead of $1).

One of the best things about online blackjack is its low stakes. And unless you're a high roller who wants to risk upwards of $1k per hand, we don't recommend the Elite version and its $10 minimum bet.

Atlantic City Blackjack
Rules

Here are the notable rules for Saucify's Atlantic City blackjack game:

  • Natural blackjacks pay 3:2.
  • The dealer stands on a soft 17.
  • You can double down after splitting.
  • You can double down on any total
  • You can split hands up to 3 times (4 total hands).
  • Re splitting aces isn't allowed.
  • The dealer peeks for a blackjack if their up card is an ace, 10, or face card.
  • Surrender (late) is allowed.
  • 8 decks are used.
Return to Player

RTP for Saucify's Atlantic City blackjack is 99.64%, which is above average when compared to similar online variations.

As you can see, this game has a number of favorable rules, including 3:2 blackjack payouts, the dealer standing on a soft 17, doubling down after splitting, doubling down after any total, and re splitting up to 3 times.

The one thing preventing Atlantic City blackjack from having a higher RTP is that 8 decks are used. The house edge increases by 0.59% when moving from single deck to 8 deck blackjack.

How to Play

Almost everything we described with single deck blackjack applies to the Atlantic City version. The only difference is that you have a late surrender option after your firs two cards are dealt.

Betting

  • You have a pair of 10's (or face cards): always stand.
  • You have a pair of aces: always split.
European Blackjack
Rules

The most notable aspect of European blackjack is that the dealer doesn't check for blackjack when they have an ace showing. You can see this and other main European blackjack rules below:

  • Natural blackjacks pay 3:2.
  • The dealer stands on a soft 17.
  • No doubling down after splitting.
  • You can only double down on 9 11.
  • You can only split hands once (& re splitting aces isn't allowed).
  • Dealer doesn't peek for blackjack if their up card is an ace, 10, or face card.
  • No surrender.
  • 2 decks are used.
Return to Player

RTP for Saucify's European blackjack is 99.43%, which is average for the industry.

This is their worst paying blackjack game, namely because of all the restrictions. These include: no doubling down after splitting; only being able to double down on 9 11; only splitting hands once; and no re splitting aces.

The dealer not peaking for blackjack seems like it would have a big impact because you can lose additional bets. But this only causes the house edge to increase by 0.03%.

Where is Saucify Blackjack Found?

Saucify blackjack games are found at over a dozen casinos that collectively serve Asia, European, and/or North American customers.

Going further, we've seen their software at both well trusted casinos that are licensed in the UK and Malta, as well as unregulated brands.

One of the most notable places you can find Saucify software is at Genesys Technology Group casinos, which includes: Bella Vegas, Black Lotus, Grand Bay, Grand Eagle, Lake Palace, Lucky Creek, Mandarin Palace, Treasure Mile, Vegas Crest, and WizBet Casino.

These sites all share a similar look and navigation, just with different themes and graphics. They're all licensed in Curacao, which is a suspect licensing jurisdiction that oversees both reputable and rogue casinos.

Two licensed casinos that use Saucify table games include Casino Dukes and Villa Fortuna. Owned by Continental Gaming LTD, these casinos are both licensed in the UK and Malta.

Other Saucify Games & Services

Aside from blackjack, Saucify also provides over 100 games across classic slots, video slots, craps, roulette, scratch cards, and video poker.

Of these products, we're most impressed with the slots because many of them offer quality 3D graphics and good features. Some of their top slots include: Age of Spartans, Big Game, Bucksy Malone, Captain Shockwave, Legends of Greece, Midnight Rider, and Worlds at War.

Customer Service Setup

Saucify offers a customer service toolkit for online casinos that need to set up a support department. Their website states that they'll walk casinos through the process of getting their customer support running.

Customizable Software

Saucify works with online casinos to offer customizable software. Options that casinos can change include: games, software, languages, banking, and regulatory requirements.

White Label Casino Services

Another service that Saucify offers players includes assistance in entering new markets. Specifically, they assist in structuring deals, creating password protected operational functions, and market expertise to help companies reach profits faster.

Conclusion

Saucify doesn't have the industry's widest range of blackjack games. Furthermore we don't count the Elite versions as separate games, meaning they really only have four variations.

But Saucify does deserve credit for offering high quality blackjack games that give you a strong chance to win.

As for the quality, both the Elite and Standard versions offer detailed graphics that create an authentic casino feel. The playing process is easy to understand, and you can access a help screen if you run into any trouble.

The single deck blackjack is definitely worth playing because it delivers 99.77% RTP. This is among the highest paying blackjack games we've seen, and you only have to risk a dollar to play.

Downsides to Saucify include limited variety, no multi hand version, and the Elite games' $10 minimum bet.

As discussed earlier, we personally don't see the lack of multi hand blackjack as a problem. But it would be nice to see more than four games - eight if you count the small differences between the Elite and Standard versions.

Overall, the positives outweigh the negatives regarding Saucify's blackjack. That being said, we recommend you try the Atlantic City, Vegas Strip, and single deck versions because they all offer high RTP.
