Pontoon is an exciting multi-hand variation of 21 that allows you to play up to 3 simultaneous hands of Blackjack. Pontoon is a British variant of one of the oldest and most popular casino games, Blackjack. Each hand plays only against the dealer, independently of other hands. Eight decks of cards are used to play which are shuffled before every new round. The rules of this version are very different indeed, from the classic blackjack that players are used to.

Your goal as the player is to draw cards (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. Additionally, if you get a "pontoon" which is a 5 card hand that has not busted, it will also count as a win. In many other blackjack versions, the dealer will stand on 17. In Pontoon, the dealer will hit when he has a soft 17. This means that a 17 that has an Ace in the total can be hit with the safety net of the Ace being counted as a 1 instead of the 11 points. It is also necessary to be aware that the player hits on all 14 points or less. In general, it is good basic blackjack strategy to hit on 14, Pontoon just made it required. In the case the dealer and the player both have the same total, the dealer always wins. In fact, if the dealer has a Pontoon, it will beat all other players' cards.

In Pontoon, it’s also possible to place a side bet. This side bet is called the ‘Sweet 16’ and is based on the first two cards dealt. Sweet 16 pays 1:1 on a initial card total of 16 or 21. Regular payouts pay 2:1 on a Pontoon (Blackjack), 2 to 1 on winning 5 card hand and 1 to 1 on a regular win.

If you are used to the classic version of blackjack, Pontoon has a host of new opportunities for you. Play it at EmuCasino and enjoy all the great possibilities you have to win.
