Diamond 21 Blackjack Variation Game



Invention Summary


A variation of blackjack in which the player is presented with three

cards face up (their card and two additional cards). The player then

chooses which card to add to their hand and which card to give to the

dealer. The game is then played much like traditional blackjack.


Market Opportunity


The casino and gambling market has been steadily increasing with the

expansion of online gambling as well as the increasing legality of

gambling in and out of the United States. According to IBISWorld,

industry revenue for casinos and online gambling is expected to

increase by 3.5% to $318.7 billion over the five years to 2024.

Furthermore, as gaming expenditure increases by an annualized rate of

3.1%, the market will also expand by an annualized rate of 2.6% as

more gaming enterprises are established.


These factors point to the steady growth of the casino and gambling

industry and as a result, the spread and appeal of table games like

blackjack. According to IBISWorld, gaming tables are the major

product offered by the industry with 35% dedicated to this segment

alone. This segment is estimated to make up 15.8% of industry revenue

in 2019 and includes games such as blackjack, roulette and poker.

Blackjack is estimated to represent 8.6% of industry revenue alone as it

typically has the lowest amount of house edge, or advantage biased to

the casino. As casinos and gaming become more accessible in the

United States and internationally, the opportunity for blackjack variants

to enter the market is favorable as overall reach and market accessibility

also increase.
