Hey Ken, its Brutus from the old forums. I asked several months ago when an app for my Samsung tablet would be available. The game has two modes of play: Yes, you are right that Flash is dying. They are not interchangeable so if you want to play at a different real money blackjack casino, you have to download the new casino's software too.

Anyone new to the game of Blackjack will appreciate a brief run-down of the rules and strategy. Blackjack is a card game that pits you against the Dealer in a battle of the better hand. In order to win, you must have a higher score than the Dealer, up to a maximum of 21 points. Not only do you win automatically, you get paid 3: There are three to four moves you can make to alter your hand. Add another card to your hand for more points. You can hit as often as you like while under 22 points.
Your score will be calculated and the winner will be declared. Some versions of Blackjack allow you to surrender your first two cards. Half your bet will be returned to you and the round will end. Every hand combination vs. Dealer upcard possible has been analyzed by experts for optimal results. All you need to do is memorize the prescribed action for every scenario.

If you find any bugs, please contact me. A screenshot would be appreciated if you claim the game is misplaying a hand. I get a lot of incorrect reports that the advice given is incorrect. This usually can be explained by the user not using the correct basic strategy for the rules selected.

The game only knows basic strategy. Also, please note that it is a standard blackjack rule that split aces get one card each.
