HOW TO PLAY PONTOON
When the round starts, you will have to select one of the coins from the coin range. You then place these coins on all the hands and side bets you plan to play. If you have played a hand previously, you will be offered to re-bet. Doing so will reapply your old bet, and all you have to do is press the Deal button.
Cards are then dealt: two for every player hand, and two for the dealer. Both dealer’s hands are dealt face-down, meaning you have no idea what the dealer has. You can then choose to Hit, Stand, Split or Double. Standing is only possible if your hand value is fifteen or higher. In addition to that, you will automatically stand if you have a five-card hand. Doubling is available for any two cards, while splitting can only be done with pairs. You can keep hitting after doubling a hand.
Once you finish playing all three hands, the round continues. The dealer will reveal his hand and draw more cards if necessary. If either your or the dealer’s hand goes above 21, then you automatically lose that round. Alternatively, the hand closest to 21 will be the winner under most circumstances. Winning exactly 21 is Pontoon, and always wins unless tied. In addition, a five-card hand that has not busted will also be a stronger win compared to a standard win.
