Microgaming Unveils XBox 360 Blackjack Strategy Trainer

March 6, 2013


One aspect of online gambling that many people don't think about is how many different platforms there are for users available. Back whenever online casinos were only played from desktop computers, the laptop market wasn't really considered. Once play from laptops became popular, the next frontier was cell phones and mobile devices. It's well-known that the mobile casino market is booming right now, so it makes sense for big online casino software companies to go after more and more platforms to expand. Gaming consoles have been working online for about a decade now, and it's about time that these casino software companies start taking advantage.

Microgaming has recently announced a new blackjack strategy training program for the XBox 360 and Windows 8. The game is called Bronzebeard Blackjack: The Strategy Coach, and it's a 3-D application that runs on Windows 8 and XBox 360. This game is free to play, and it offers players a way to learn correct blackjack strategy in a fun environment based on an "intergalactic" adventure theme. The storyline takes players through space to educate them on how blackjack is played and what correct strategy looks like in the game.

Blackjack is one of the classic casino games that players keep coming back to. While it's a fairly simple game to learn, it takes a lot of work to master. There are a lot of different rule variations in blackjack, and these small rule changes can mean some drastic changes in the correct strategies at certain points in the game. Combined with card counting, blackjack is one of the most strategic casino games played against the house, and the absolute best of the best can often get an advantage against the casino. This has made blackjack a popular game in today's culture, so it's no surprise that they have chosen this game as the focal point for their XBox debut.

Microgaming is one of the two most successful online casino software companies around today. Their software is used in online casinos, online bingo rooms, online poker rooms and more all across the globe. Microgaming is currently dominating the mobile casino market, and with this move on XBox, it looks like they're pressing towards new markets as well. It will be a lot of fun to see what else Microgaming comes up with for the XBox 360 and other gaming consoles.
