Sonya Blackjack is an online blackjack variant from Yggdrasil. It can be played at online casinos like InterCasino. It is not a live dealer blackjack game, but it is neither the regular online blackjack variant where cards are dealt from a shoe without the presence of a dealer. In this game there is an animated figure that deals the cards and conducts the game in the same manner as in a real casino or in a live dealer game. She is Sonya. And this makes the game visually more enjoyable.

The blackjack table is set in a casino and offers proper 3D perspective. When the game loads you can see three seats at the blackjack table. One is directly in front of Sonya, one is to her left and one is to her right. Sonya Blackjack is not a multi-hand game. You pick one of the seats and the table turns to give you vision from that perspective. But Sonya Blackjack is a multi-player game. When the game loads other players may be at the table. You can take an open seat by clicking on it. If all seats are taken, then you will have to wait for a player to leave a seat. Sonya will announce the values of the hands as the cards are dealt and the outcome of the game. When it is your turn to make a move, she will tap the table in front of you.

The game is played like a standard American blackjack variant, in which Sonya is dealt the second card face down and checks for blackjack when the need arises. The shoe consists of six standard decks, which are shuffled after each round as in online blackjack. The bet range is $1 to $500. After each round you have the option to repeat the bet, double the bet or place a new bet.

The standard Split, Double and Insurance rules apply. The dealer stands on soft 17. An option that you normally do not see in online blackjack variants is Even Money. If the player has a blackjack and the dealer’s face up card is an ace then Sonya will offer you this option. In the regular game, if Sonya does not get a blackjack you will be paid 3 to 2. But if Sonya also gets a blackjack, your bet will push. In the Even Money option you can settle for 1 to 1 payout and close the deal.
