Pontoon Blackjack Payout Tables and Rules

Game Rules and Payout Details

Game Rules

  • The game is played with eight regular decks of 52 cards apiece

  • The dealer must stick on all 17's

  • The player must take additional cards on any total of 14 or below

  • A "pontoon" is any two card hand that totals 21, including after a split

  • The dealer receives two cards, both face-down, and checks them for pontoon. There are no "up-cards"

  • Re-splitting is allowed once, to make a total of three hands

  • A five-card trick, in staying under 21, pays 2-to-1

  • The player can take only one card to split aces

  • The player can "buy" once per hand, whether that is on two, three or four cards. This is similar to doubling down.

  • Two ten-value cards that are not the same rank can still be split.

  • There is no insurance

Payout Schedule

  • A "pontoon" (two-card 21) pays off at 2-to-1 odds
