Pontoon From NetEnt

This is a version of online Pontoon from Net Ent.


This version of the English classic Pontoon published by NetEnt is an exciting multi-hand Blackjack variant that allows you to play up to 3 simultaneous hands. Each Pontoon hand only plays against the dealer (i.e. the house), independently of any other hands. This version uses Eight (8) decks of cards as opposed to the classic variety, Which was usually play at home with a single deck. Betsoft state in their details about the game that your goal as the player is to draw cards (i.e. hit) until your hand adds up to 21, or comes as close as possible without exceeding 21. We here at blackjack saying that you simply have to obtain a hand which is higher than the dealer without going over 21. If your first two cards total 21, you have Blackjack.


If the total value of your cards is closer to 21 than the dealer's, you win as much as you have bet. If you have Pontoon (which is just another way of saying Blackjack), you win 2 to 1 (assuming the dealer does not also have pontoon).
Aces count as either 1 or 11, pictured cards as 10, and remaining cards according to their face values.
If the total of your cards exceeds 21, you are bust and lose your money. Pontoon beats a score of 21. The dealer wins ties.
Pontoon is just like regular Blackjack except for the following:

Hands are ranked as follows:
* A pontoon, which is defined as an ace and any 10-point card. Unlike blackjack, you can split cards and still obtain a pontoon.
* A 5-card hand that has not busted. All 5-card tricks are of the same value; the point total does not matter.
* A non-busted hand (21 points or fewer), with 4 or fewer cards. Hands are ranked within this group according to the total number of points.
* A busted hand (more than 21 points).

*You may stand on any total greater than or equal to 15, and the rules will automatically stand on any 5-card hand.
*You can hit at any point, including after doubling.
*You can double on 2 to 4 cards, but only once per hand. This option includes after splitting, and once for each split hand. The player may not resplit a split hand.
*If you have a pontoon or 5-card hand pays 2:1. All other player wins pay 1:1.
* Dealer hits soft 17 and stops with any 5-card hand.
* When a push occurs on your hand, the dealer wins.
