Play Pontoon for real with any of the following sites:
Pontoon is a unique spin on the classic game of blackjack. With 2:1 payouts for initial totals of 21 and five-card hands, more flexible doubling, and great odds for players, Pontoon makes for a thrilling game. To start a game of Pontoon, simply place your chips in the available betting field. Hit “Deal” (or similar button) to begin the game.
Because this game is so drastically different in nature from the other RTG blackjack options, it’s probably best that to break down its rules. All ties go to the Dealer. Dealer will hit on a hard 16 or a soft 17. Dealer will stand on a hard 17 or soft 18 as well as a 5-card hand of any total. A Dealer’s 5-card hand will beat a Player’s 5-card hand. A player can hit up to 5 times and can only stand once he or she reaches a total of 15 points or has 5 cards. Doubling is allowed once on the same hand. Splitting is allowed on any pair, up to three hands.
The game starts out fairly innocuously, you get your two cards, and the Dealer gets two cards, except in this game, the Dealer’s cards are both face down.
The payouts are fairly decent here as well. A Pontoon will pay 2 to 1, and you’ll get the same odds on a 5-card hand.
If this still seems a little complicated, RTG has an extensive rulebook, as well as a quick rule menu that you can access at anytime during your play.
