Pontoon is an exciting multi-hand Blackjack that allows you to play up to 3 simultaneous hands of Blackjack. A Sweet 16 bonus side game gives you the chance to win additional credits. Each hand plays only against the dealer (i.e. the bank), independently of other hands. Eight (8) decks of cards are used to play. 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. 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 wagered. If you have Pontoon (Blackjack), you win 2 to 1 (assuming the dealer does not also have Blackjack).
Aces count as either 1 or 11, dressed cards as 10, and remaining cards according to their number values.
If the total of your cards exceeds 21, you bust and lose your wager. Pontoon beats a score of 21. Dealer wins ties.
Hands are ranked as follows:
The minimum wager in Pontoon is 1.00, and the maximum wager is 1000.00.
