One of the better Blackjack games made.

Reasonably Good

The game was pretty good. However I had a few issues. For instance I had gotten a black jack but the dealer managed to tie me and win. Normally for me, black jack is an automatic win.

Not very good

Even the basic mechanics of blackjack are completely wrong/missing. No double down, split, insurance, etc.
Also maybe it's different in Europe but here in the US the dealer has no choice when to stop dealing themselves cards. Depending on the house rules they either stand on soft 17, or hit on soft 17... in either case they stay on a hard 17 and hit on anything less than 17. The dealer in your game stopped at 16, I guess because he had me beat?
BTW, it's called a 'push', not a 'tie'.
Also aside from the fact that this isn't real blackjack, there's really nothing additionally compelling about the game... as far as I can see there's no real reward system for doing well in the game. Also the game moves too slowly with the messages and slow fade in and fade out taking too much time between hands.
Go to your local casino, play some real black jack, and get back to us. Or at least go read a wikipedia article or two on the subject.

Kenney responds:

We've been reading alot of rules, those of local casinos, Wikipedia pages and what not. There are no global rules for Blackjack, every casino has different takes on the rules that's why it's really hard to find the best or most fitting.

Thanks for writing the review though, it's actually constructive for a change :)

Pretty good

No double or split, but I understand why you didn't put them in there. I would include a 'max bet' option, though, so I don't have to sit there and click on the 100 chip five times for each hand.

Kenney responds:

Hm, yeah a max bet button would be cool. Thanks for the suggestion!


Rules are a dealer must play till they recieve 17 or over.

It was very slow between bets. Though the visuals were nice.
