PONTOON

Pontoon is a card game that was made popular in the UK and is now making its way in the US and in Asia. It is a variant of the American game Blackjack and was originally based on the French card game Vingt-et-un (21). The objective of the game is to get as close as you can to 21 points without going over. Unlike Blackjack, Pontoon is played without the “10’s”
