You don't have to travel to Las Vegas or a casino in order to enjoy a little gaming excitement. The BlackJack app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone brings all the fun of a casino right to your mobile device.
There is no need to find a casino if you feel like enjoying some black jack; instead, just launch this app and start playing. For those unfamiliar with the game it involves the player and the dealer. You are each dealt a hand of cards and the person who is closer to 21 is the winner.
If you have more than 22 you "bust" and it means you have lost the game. This app is from the Paradise Casino Walkerhill, which is actually located in Korea. It is one of the largest casinos in all of Korea. The developers have tried to make the game feel realistic through its graphics and gameplay.
This blackjack app isn't a new release, nor has it had any recent updates. It doesn't even have any customer comments or ratings on the iTunes description page so going into this one is a bit of a mystery. The latest update was a bug fix and that’s been it.
Get Ready to Play
Launching the app, the first thing that comes to mind is that it loads up very quickly. You are given a few quick shots of the actual casino in Korea as well which is kind of cool. I find the main menu to be a bit cluttered-looking as the developer tries to squeeze game features and casino features into it.
You can actually read about the casino through the app, which of course makes sense for marketing purposes. It's just too bad that it leaves the screen feeling so busy.
Playing the game is smooth and simple and everything moves along quite quickly. If you're new to blackjack this one may not be a great option for you as it moves very fast and you're not given any sort of tutorial. If you’re looking for an app that helps you learn about how to play blackjack and perfect your skills, this one isn’t ideal.
