It comes from Britain and it is very close to the regular game of blackjack but there are some unique aspects to it that you need to learn in order to have a chance to win.

Normally there would be 8 decks on the game so there will be a lot of amazing combinations and some weird ones too. In this game, both cards of the dealer are faced down. The regular terms are also replaced with other ones so be ready to learn them. First is if you want to hit, you say twist. Stand is stick, if you want to double down, you buy. Blackjack, is of course, pontoon.

Here are some rules:

  • Any two cards with a sum of 10 even if they are not the same.
  • If you hit a pontoon on a split ace, you still get the 2:1 edge instead of just 1:1.
  • If you dare to split aces, you only get a card on each hand after that and you should stick.
  • If your hand is equal to the dealers, the dealer wins.
  • You get 2:1 and you beat everything if you get the Five Card Trick but you cannot beat a pontoon.
  • You can buy once on each hand and get up to 4 cards.

This is a very enjoyable game to experience, so do not hesitate to try this one out.
