Even though blackjack is one of the world’s most popular casino games, it seems that a lot of times it is kept as an afterthought when it comes to online gambling. Many casinos only offer a handful of blackjack games, pushing off players to slots and other games with higher house edges. Blackjack Ballroom looks to buck this trend by offering what may be the world’s first blackjack-centric online casino. While the site does have other style games, it’s nice to see something that’s specifically focused on our game.

Software and Games
Blackjack Ballroom uses software exclusively through Microgaming, which is interesting in that many of the different operators that adopt it also have other software available. The casino has both a downloadable piece of software that’s mandatory and only downloadable in .exe, so Mac users need not apply.
This certainly isn’t the prettiest casino in the world, but it’s certainly serviceable option for players. In relation to blackjack, there is a healthy selection of games available. The casino has standard variations as well as regular versions of the game. There are more than 40 different blackjack titles to play, including: Double Exposure, Big Five, Atlantic City Blackjack, European Blackjack, Las Vegas Blackjack, Classic Blackjack, Bonus Blackjack, and more.

In addition to blackjack, there are slots, video poker, table games, and parlor style games available. These games boost up the library of games to a large number, and when you combine the progressive jackpot network with them, you’re given a huge number of games to play.
It should be noted that there’s no mobile site available, so you’re pretty much stuck to playing on a desktop or laptop.
Security and Fairness
Blackjack Ballroom uses 128-bit SSL encryption for information sent two and from their servers. This keeps your data safe and we only recommend you play at a casino that uses the technology.
Fairness isn’t an issue, as the casino holds a gaming license through both Kahnawake and the United Kingdom. The UK is one of the best spots to hold a gaming license, as they hold operators responsible for their actions. Furthermore, the site is accredited by eCOGRA, which audits the software to ensure that things are fair. This leads to us trusting that the software here is on the level.
Unfortunately, players from US are not allowed.
Banking and Customer Support
There is a decent banking system in place, as Blackjack Ballroom accepts deposits and withdrawals through check, bank wire, eWallet, Visa, and MasterCard. The site has a $4,000 weekly withdrawal limit, and the payout time runs at least two business days for eWallets. This is slower than some other sites we’ve seen, but also isn’t the worst we’ve seen either. The operator is dependable, so you will get your winnings… it may just take an extra day or so.
Customer support is excellent, as the help team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through email, telephone, and live chat. The help is pretty much standard but were able to answer the few blackjack questions I threw their way.
If you’re looking to play at a casino that celebrates online blackjack, then Blackjack Ballroom is your spot. Things here look dated, but the games work just fine. This is a reputable site that is good to play at, and we recommend you give it a shot.
