Sponsored App Review: Blackjack

July 1, 2015 - Written By Tom Dawson

Blackjack is an Android game that, as you might have guessed already, aims to offer the casino classic no matter where people want to play it. What’s refreshing about this is that there’s no need to gamble real money, and you can play offline. Any purchase of chips automatically removes ads, and you are also rewarded free chips every so many hours. This doesn’t feature classic Blackjack however, as it also features multi-hand Blackjack as well as the ability to play in a tournament. Blackjack is designed to be as simple and hassle free a way as possible to enjoy this Casino classic.

Starting is nice and simple, all you need to do is to download Blackjack from the Play Store, and wait for it to sign in with your Google Play Games account.

From there, players can choose from a number of different Blackjack games, including multihand Blackjack as well as a tournament mode where you play against two AI.

Those that might worry that Blackjack is yet another money-grabbing game can rest easy. Each purchase automatically removes ads, and you do get free chips quite often as well.

What’s more, you can choose to bet very few chips when playing if all you’re interested in is playing Blackjack rather than amassing lots of chips.

Playing the game is, well just like playing Blackjack. You deal and then ask for either more cards or you just stick with what you already have, choice is yours.

Should you win, you’ll be awarded the bet as well as a neat sort of animation with an accompanying sound effect, it’s fairly gratifying if not just a little bit cheesy.

I really took to the multi-hand Blackjack setup, and I was throughly enjoying it until I decided to bet too much and got cocky, thus losing half of my remaining chips.

Blackjack is a thoroughly enjoyable Android game, it’s simple and easy to play without needing to jump through any hoops or anything like that. The game of Blackjack might not have changed at all over the years, but it’s a still a classic game and there’s not much to it, which arguably makes it more suited for short gaming sessions while on the move than it does much else. Either way, the game doesn’t ask you to gamble real money, the chip prices are fairly reasonable, the game pays out quite often and whenever you spend any money in the game you remove ads. A straightforward and hassle-free way to play a Casino Classic no matter where you are without risk or anything like that. I enjoyed the multihand gameplay, and wished there was some sort of background music, but it’s a good-looking game overall and there’s little to complain about.

Ratings

  • Features (4/5) – A solid, hassle-free Blackjack game for Android that has a lot on offer, including the fun new Multihand mode.
  • Theme (4/5) – Perhaps Blackjack’s appeal is a little uninspiring, but everything looks okay here, it could just do with some background music or something like that.
  • Overall (4/5) – Blackjack works well, doesn’t ask too much of its players and just offers users a fun way to experience a Casino Classic.

Pros

  • Any purchase of more chips automatically removes ads, and free chips are rewarded fairly often, too.
  • Multi-hand gameplay is good fun and helps to quickly teach those new to the game of Blackjack.
  • Works well on tablets as well as smartphones for quick gaming fun wherever you are.
  • Great way of getting those new to Casino games introduced to something like Blackjack, and it’s free!

Cons

  • Some sort of background music would be nice to have, as it can be a little quiet.
  • Online multiplayer with a real opponent as the dealer would be good fun, and further extend Google Play Games integrations.

All-in-all, Blackjack is a game that’s food fun for those looking to play the Casino Classic without having to jump through a myriad of different hoops just to do so. There are free chips awarded fairly frequently, and the game doesn’t ask much of its players. It’s free to download, doesn’t ask you to gamble real money and is just good fun.
