Online debut of blackjack variant game exclusively available at BetMGM
JERSEY CITY, NJ – (December 12, 2023) – BetMGM, a leading iGaming and sports betting operator, announced today it has partnered with Score Gaming, a specialist in the creation and design of table games and side bets, to launch Double-Up Blackjack. The game was created in-house by Entain’s Win Studios. Double-Up Blackjack is now available online for the first time exclusively at BetMGM Casino and Borgata Online in New Jersey.
Double-Up Blackjack takes traditional blackjack to the next level by offering players the chance to double their wager on any 2-card hand, except for a natural blackjack. To “double-up,” a player places an additional wager of any amount, up to the original wager. Double-Up is built around Score Gaming’s proprietary End 16 Rule, which enhances the game by ensuring players can win, but can never lose when the dealer has a 16. The game also features a new side bet, 16 Bonus, an optional wager that wins when the dealer’s cards total 16. The payouts are based on the number of cards it takes the dealer to total 16, with payouts of up to 500x.

Double-Up Blackjack debuted at land-based casinos in 2012 and achieved global success. Today, over a third of casinos have multiple Double-Up games on the gaming floor. Double-Up Blackjack is the first offering from Score Gaming’s suite of End 16 games.
