"Another update to your fabulous Blackjack game... I played to turn on the dealers lovely and sometimes wise-cracking voice... Thanks for an excellent game. I do like the chips action you have added." -- Greg W

Our casino games offer a variety of fun options. With online gambling becoming more popular by the day, sites like are showcasing the 'real money' options available (not to be confused with binary option robots, which are used by options investment traders).

Gypsy King's Blackjack Gold shareware game gives you a great way of practicing your play and learning the odds, before you go out there looking for the money games. Dozens of Blackjack Gold game options allow you to simulate virtually any casino rules. And while casino games offer bonuses to bring you in, the only bonuses in the Blackjack Gold shareware game are when you set the game options to pay out more than 3:2 for a blackjack, or opt for one of the side bets such as Over Under 13, or variants such as Super Sevens.

Players have asked whether BJ Gold stacks the deck for or against the player. It does not. The deck shuffle (which itself offers several variants) is designed to simulate, as closely as possible, what happens in a real game. Discards are added to the discard pile in the order that they are picked up throughout the game. And the discard pile is shuffled from that starting point, whether by hand, or a 19-slot automatic shuffle machine. The blackjack tutor helps teach strategy, while the Help button in the lower left corner assists with game play itself. You can also find out more about how a blackjack game works with this useful guide to blackjack.

For the Serious Blackjack Game Player...

Deck Shuffle and Deck Penetration: The first shuffle when you start a new blackjack game is always random. During game play as the dealer picks up your cards they are put onto the discard pile, the most recent cards on top. The cards are added to the discard pile just as you see them taken from the blackjack table. If you bust, those cards are taken away immediately and added to the discard pile just as a real blackjack dealer would. Ditto for paying out blackjacks, surrendering, even money, etc.

Blackjack ShoeYou can set the deck penetration to reflect your favorite casino's blackjack rules. This places a "cut card" in the deck and when the deck gets down to the "cut card" in a hand shuffle game or an automatic machine shuffle game, the dealer shuffles. For the hand shuffle, the deck is divided into 4 equal piles. Half the pile is taken from each of two piles, shuffled together twice, and put into the new deck pile. The actually shuffle riffles the cards randomly to simulate a blackjack dealer hand shuffle more accurately. The final new deck will be made up of several shuffled piles stacked on top of each other.

Continuous shuffle games use a 19-slot elevator shuffle, as do the Automatic Machine Shuffle games.

"Thank you for your remarkedly fast response. I have looked at a number of blackjack games on the internet as well as in computer stores and yours seems to be the best. It is so full featured, I am surprised that it was so reasonably priced. (The best graphics I have seen so far is Blackjack Ballroom, but this has no where near the features of your game: also, it is sponsored by a casino and seems to be very easy to beat. I ran $1,000 into $9,000 the first time I played it. I wonder how well I would have done if I had been playing for real money, as they wish? Thanks again." -- Jerry W

High Scores Window: A blackjack game ends when all the players leave the table, or when you decide to stop playing and end the blackjack game. Each player starts a game with a preset bankroll (which you can change). When the game ends, the amount of money left in your pot will determine your Blackjack Game Score. If you have $300 and your bankroll was $250, you've won $50, so your Game Score will be $50. If you have $100 left from a $250 bankroll, your Game Score will be -$150, a loss. You also have a Cumulative Score, remembered from game to game. If you lose $50, gain $75, and lose $10, your Cumulative Score will be (plus 75 minus 50 minus 10 = $15), a gain of $15 overall. Which blackjack strategy you were using (computer players only, human players strategies are listed as Human), the number of players and decks during that game, the number of hands played, and other factors are also tracked. You can sort the High Scores window by any of the categories. The top 100 blackjack strategies are remembered. If you win $400 in one game using the Basic Strategy and then lose $1000 in subsequent blackjack games, then overall the Basic Strategy has lost you $600, so this number is the key number in how Blackjack Gold chooses the top 100.
