26 Dec 2013
BetSoft Gaming is the creator of a superior version of virtual Pontoon. The game has a variety of chip denominations, including $1.00, $5.00, and $25.00. You can place a minimum bet of $1.00 per hand or a maximum bet of $100.00 per hand. This version of Blackjack lets you play up to three hands at the same time. Pontoon also has a Sweet Sixteen Bonus side bet. The game involves the use of eight decks of 52 playing cards.
In Pontoon, the dealer wins on any ties. If you get an Ace and any other 10 point card, you get Pontoon. Pontoons after splitting also qualify as wins. You must stand on any total greater or equal to 15. If you get Pontoon, the payout is 2:1. If you get a winning five card hand, the payout is 2:1. All other wins pay 2:1. The game software will stand on a five card hand automatically. You can double on two to four cards, but you can only double in a hand one time. The dealer hits on soft seventeen and stops on a five card hand.
In terms of the Sweet Sixteen Side bet, if you get a hand value of 16 through 21 or you have one Ace in your hand, the side bet win is 1:1. If you have two Aces in your hand, the payout is 2:1. If you have a pair of twos or sevens, the hand results in a push.
The controls of the game are easy to use and visually pleasing. There are four buttons along the bottom edge of the game window including double, split, clear, and deal. The clear button transforms into the stand button after the initial deal. The deal button transforms into a hit button following the first deal. Next to every hand in play, you can see the score of the hand and text indicating any wins.
The demo version of the game starts out with 1000 credits. You can see your total bet and the amount of credits you have in the lower left hand corner of the game window. The chips are in the lower right hand corner. To begin a game, click on the chips you want to use and add them to the betting area.
