Stravaganza is an online casino game very similar to Blackjack but where the Bust option is absent. Stravaganza follows some very easy rules and its aim is basically to obtain a higher total than the dealer. The game offers big payouts on top of a Progressive Jackpot.
Stravaganza is played with five decks with wagering options varying between 3 and 300. Once the player has made his initial bet, he is dealt 2 cards while the dealer is dealt 3. If the player’s cards total less than 5 points, he has the possibility of getting his bet back and ending the round. If the cards value adds to between 6 and 9 points, the player can get half his bet back and end the round and if the cards total 10 or more points, the game follows its course.
Regardless of the total of the player’s first 2 cards, he can choose to call for a third card to increase his score. For this, the player is requested to place a second bet of the same value as his original wager. The no-bust option is really handy here since the more points obtained, the better it is for the player. In Stravaganza, the dealer wins automatically and irrevocably if he receives a red ace. When this happens, the player loses his original wager and the second match wager is pushed. In any other case, the hand of strongest value wins.
Stravaganza offers interesting payouts. For instance, with a three card hand, a three of a kind with cards ranging from 5’s to K’s bring a 3 for 1 payout. At the Progressive Jackpot level, which can be played for an additional side wager the payouts get even better. Any card combination totaling 30 pays 10 times the progressive jackpot side bet, three of a kind with cards ranging from 5′s to 10′s pays 50 times, three of a kind with cards ranging from J’s to K’s pays 100 times and three of a kind face cards pays 10% of the Progressive Jackpot. The Progressive Jackpot is won when the player gets a hand with three Kings of Hearts. At the time of this writing, the Stravaganza Progressive Jackpot amount was fast nearing the $30,000 mark.
