Genesis Gaming is taking Scientific Games‘ land-based hit Zombie Blackjack online, as Zombie Blackjack Rises.
“Genesis is the first online game provider to bring Scientific Games’ successful table game, Zombie Blackjack, online. Following its debut at the Venetian last summer, the game has been heralded as the next big craze for blackjack players around the world.”
Zombie Blackjack is a blackjack variant by the famed game inventor, Geoff Hall, who also created the popular Blackjack Switch and Free Bet Blackjack games seen on casino floors. The twist to this version is, depending on the dealer’s up-card, the player may have the chance to bring busted hands back to life.
What’s the catch? Like in Hall’s other successful blackjack games, the Push 22 rule is used where if the player does not bust and did not have blackjack, then the player’s wagers are simply returned to them.
“Genesis’ interpretation of Zombie Blackjack game-play is spot on. Particularly, the game’s digital visual and audio effects add a thrill and excitement dimension that we simply cannot do in the land-based version of the game,” – game inventor Geoff Hall

The new game, which has already gone live with Genesis’ partners in Asia, marks two milestones for the company: another notch in its portfolio’s diversity belt and adding a new market segment of online card players.
Zombie Blackjack makes busting entertaining by bringing busted hands back to life – and Genesis is the first to bring it online.
