If you're a big blackjack player, then the chances are you've heard of Pontoon too. But have you ever played it? Well now is the chance to get to grips with this exciting casino game on Gala Bingo.

In fact, many players often get the two games confused and it is easy to see why. But Pontoon is a great game in its own right and is perfect for beginners and experienced players alike. Pontoon is a simple game that's really easy to understand. The basic premise of the game is to get as close to a score of 21 as possible, without going bust. To begin with, you'll be dealt two cards. You can then choose to be dealt another card or to stick with what you have. The dealer won't reveal their cards until the end of the game, unless he has a beginning score of 21. As well as aiming to get 21, you also need to beat the dealer's hand!

You can of course win from the offset if you are dealt exactly 21 with your beginning cards. This hand would comprise of an Ace plus a card with a value of 10. Alternatively you could also get lucky with a five-card-trick which is essentially five cards that are dealt to the player without them going over 21. If you score any of these hands, your return will be 2-1. All other hands are paid at even money. Pontoon is one of the easiest and most fun variations of blackjack and you can play all of your favourites. Whether you're a fan of Pontoon, Single-Deck Blackjack or Blackjack Switch, there are plenty of games to choose from.
