Pontoon is a casino game which originated in Britain. This game, which is the British version of 21 or Vingt-et-un, is a form of Blackjack, although the rules and regulations are slightly different.

All these three games 21, Blackjack and Pontoon, are either played with a standard 52-card deck and the players play against a dealer. To play pontoon, it requires a minimum of two players but there is no limit to the number of players who can play, but it is best played with 5-8 players. Normally when there are 8 or more people playing this game, two packs of cards are mixed together.

In the game of Pontoon, every card has its own value. The value of Ace is either 1 or 11 and is left totally to the holder’s discretion. Kings, Queens, Jacks and Tens are valued at 10 and the rest of the cards hold their face value. The object of the game is for the player to hold a set of cards with the sum total of 21. If the total crosses 21, the hand is discarded. A total of 20 or lesser than 20 with fewer than 5 cards will result in the cards being valued according to the value of their points.

There are many claims that pontoon is exactly like its American counterpart, however the fact of the matter is that pontoon has some very different rules. For instance, in pontoon, only the aces can be split and this does extend to the other pairs of cards. Here, the banker has the luxury of checking his first card and possibly, doubling the stakes. The payout is also a lot different in Pontoon. It is possible to pay a single or a treble stake as opposed to only the double.
