Hello Poker Sharks & Sharkettes!

Blackjack is Here in Zynga Poker! This mini-game was released for you all to enjoy and earn yourselves some extra chips. You should receive a pop-up in game showing off the mini-game. If you don't, the game can be accessed via the side navigation on the left side of your game. Once you open it up you'll see something like this:

As shown in the above screenshot, you have three available reward tiers to shoot for ranging from a max of 11m to 34m chips!

Once you make a choice you'll see something like this:

The dealer will deal out the cards, giving you the choice to 'Stand' or 'Hit'

Rules of Blackjack: The object of the blackjack game is to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over 21. Every time you 'Hit' the dealer will put down a new card for each player that adds to the total scores. Face cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are worth 10 points. Aces are worth 1 or 11 - whichever the game chooses is best for your hand. Other cards are represented by their number. If the player and the dealer tie, it is called a push and no one wins (allowing you to redraw the hand at no additional cost). Ace and 10 (Blackjack) on the first two cards dealt is an automatic player win, unless the dealer happens to tie. A player may stand, choose to keep their cards and not ask for more, at any time to hold the point total already accumulated.

The dealer will never hit if its first 2 cards are at 17. In other words, as it says on the table, the dealer stands at 17.

With the rules under our belts, lets go ahead and hit!

Looks like I won the first hand 20 to 17! As you can see at the top of this screenshot, one win puts one notch on the progress bar. Continue to play to reach the milestones shown on your progress bar. If you lose, you'll be given the option to either start over or continue the game for a modest gold fee. When reaching any of the milestones on the progress bar, you'll be given the option to secure what you've won and step out, or risk it all by pressing on. Choose wisely!

Keep playing for chance to win the 34m!

"Hit me!"
