Play Pontoon Blackjack Online at Mansion Casino Canada
Pontoon is the British version of the classic American blackjack game. It is similar to classic online blackjack in that the aim is to achieve a hand closer to 21 than the dealer without going over and players have the same choices when it comes to how to play their hand. However, while in classic American blackjack the dealer is dealt one face-up card and one face-down card, in Pontoon, the dealer is dealt two face-down cards – an additional challenge in the game. Another difference lies in the fact that in Pontoon, a hand of five cards that has not gone bust (a “Pontoon”) pays outs at 2 to 1, whereas in classic American blackjack it pays out at 1.5 to 1.
Place Your Bets on Pontoon Blackjack!
When you begin to play Pontoon blackjack at an online casino, you must place your bets and then click on the “deal” button. You will be dealt two cards face-up and the dealer will be dealt two cards face-down. Play your hand with the options to hit (receive another card), stand (receive no more cards and end your turn), split (split your hand of two identical cards into two hands and play them separately with separate bets) or double (double your bet and receive one more card). Once you have completed your turn, the dealer’s cards will be revealed and he will play his hand according to the casino rules. You will be paid out for any wins.
