Pontoon just as the classic version of blackjack comes in many different shapes and sizes depending on which software games run. When it comes to this Real Time Gaming version of the game, it shares some rules with the classic version of the game but it is more of an early blackjack variant. Unlike more modern blackjack games, in Pontoon, the dealer always wins on tie bets.
Graphics and Design
Just as expected from one of the most prominent names in the industry, Real Time Gaming did a truly impressive job with its Pontoon game. Once players start the game, they will notice its neatly rendered visuals and top-notch graphical solutions which are neatly incorporated. The main game’s screen is dominated by a massive red Pontoon table with betting options and coin sizes displayed at the bottom of the screen.
The game of Pontoon is played with eight fifty-two card decks and all cards have their usual value as seen in other blackjack variants. The game also features a pontoon that is defined as having any ten-point card or an ace including cards after splitting. What makes this game different from other blackjack variants is that blackjack pays 2:1 always while it works the same way as in other games. When it comes to gaming options offered, players can double down, stand, hit or split any two cards of the same rank.
