Pontoon - Blackjack Players Guide

One of the most popular parlour games and one you may have played as a child, Pontoon is very simple to learn and play.

This variant of Pontoon uses 8 full decks of playing cards and if you are playing online these decks are always shuffled fully before a new game begins.

A Pontoon is simply an Ace card with any 10 valued card and even after splitting an Ace and any ten card is classed as a Pontoon hand which pays 2-1, also a 5 card trick pays 2-1, even after splitting.

A Pontoon hand however will always beat a 5 card trick, and players are obligated to twist on any hand worth less than 15.

The Dealer gets dealt two face down cards and he will always peek at these for a Pontoon, he must also stick on all 17 or above hands.

You can buy another card on any 2, 3 or 4 cards but only once on each hand you are playing. You can buy after a split and only one card is dealt to split Aces. You can only split twice to make three separate hands.
