Have you ever played blackjack at a casino, at your house, or on a computer? Then you’ve played Blackjack for the NES. The game’s title says it all: pure, unadulterated blackjack for those who don’t really like to gamble, but love to pretend.
Options are limited. Choose to play with one, two, or three decks, with the only difference being the amount of Aces. If you play with one deck, you only play with four Aces, but three decks will have you wrangling with a mighty twelve Aces. The more decks you play with, the less likely you’ll have an advantage.
We could ramble on about the art of blackjack, and whether or not gambling parlors help local economies or just bring in more crime and chaos, but that’s for another day. Blackjack has the potential to suck you in, but more than anything, it might make you want to gamble with real money because virtual winnings just aren’t good enough.
If your inner demon’s name is Gamblor, don’t play Blackjack, as it will unleash his mighty power until you’re flat broke somewhere in Reno. For those that have self-control, the Aces await.
