Stravaganza is one of those card games online that appeals to the masses. There is less risk involved than with other popular options, such as poker and blackjack; but it is also extremely lucrative and exciting.

It is similar to blackjack in many ways, with the most obvious similarity being that your aim is to rack up more points than the dealer. Ironically, this is also where the most striking difference between the two lies – in blackjack if you go over 21 you go bust. In Stravaganza though there is no such thing as going bust, there is no maximum point value. The winner is simply whoever gets the highest total.

More About Stravaganza

The cards in this popular pastime are valued the same as they are in blackjack – the number cards are as per their face value; Jack, Queen and King are equivalent to 10; and the Ace is valued at 1.

With Stravaganza you are dealt from 5 decks. The strategy comes in when you place your bets. In the beginning, you’ll get to place your chips wherever you choose. Then press on the ‘deal’ button. You’ll be dealt 2 face-up cards and the dealer will receive 3 face-down cards.

Check out your hand and make a judgement call on what to do next. If you like what you see and you have a good feeling about your hand, bet some more. If you’re on the fence about it, how about halving your wager? And if you really don’t think much of what you’ve been dealt, you can cancel your bet.

Essentially, if the total of your hand is up to five in value, you can claim your wager back. This is called ‘Money Back’. A ‘Rescue Bet’ is when you claim back half of your original wager. You’d generally do this if your total value is between 6 and 9. To ‘Sit’ is what you could choose to do if your hand adds up to more than 10 and you would then play with these 2 cards at the original bet. If you decide to ‘Play On’ you’ll place an additional wager at the same amount of your original bet, and then you’ll be dealt one more card.

Whatever you decide to do is your call, and when you’re done, the dealer is up for his piece of the action! He will show his hand and whatever he holds in his hand determines whether you’re the winner or the loser.

But wait there’s more! Just when you thought you knew all there was to know about this version, there’s another exciting twist to its tale. If the dealer holds a red ace, be it a diamond or a heart, you’ll forfeit your original wager and get your second wager back. Doesn’t even matter what value your hand has! That’s the power of the red ace!

Stravaganza Bonuses And The Progressive Jackpot

Stravaganza also has some tasty bonuses that you can win, similar to poker, if you land certain sets, such as a three of a kind.

But the best part of all is the progressive jackpot. That’s right, this is one of the features that makes this version one of the most popular games at Mansion Casino. Get the right combination and you can win a piece of the progressive jackpot pie. Hold three Kings of Hearts and you’ll be the lucky winner of the biggest jackpot prize!
