CNET Editors' review
LastEnd's Blackjack lets you hone your skills at 21 without risk since "bets" involve no money, though glory can be yours if you earn and share a high score. You play against a dealer and bet against the house. You can press "Deal" to start a new hand, "Hit" for more cards, "Stand" to bet your current hand, and "Double" to double the bet. Blackjack requires up-to-date DirectX controls as well as Microsoft XNA Framework, but the game's installer can also install or update those features, too.
Between our firewall, antivirus software, and DirectX and XNA downloads (not to mention other optional downloads we declined), it took some clicking to get to Blackjack's card tale green interface displaying the Dealer's hand above the player's hand alongside a high score list (one player "won" $143,560!) and sandwiched between toolbars. There's a fullscreen view and handy checkbox to show or hide hot keys.
We set our bet level on the sliding scale and pressed "Deal." If you're unfamiliar with 21, also known as Blackjack, the object is to draw cards totaling 21 (or close to it) without going over. Tying the Dealer returns your bet. It's entirely too easy, which is why we like playing it at home on our PC rather than at a casino! But we had a blast practicing our skills with LastEnd's Blackjack, including the satisfaction of pulling a lucky 2 card on a risky bet we'd never make with real money. For a risk-free Blackjack fix, steer clear of Lost Wages and try this free game.
New to the game of 21? Still trying to figure out when to hit and when to stand? Don't waste your money learning at a real casino table. Play LastEnd Blackjack first is a much smarter option to improve your strategy and have a real chance of winning; because LastEnd Blackjack does not use real money. LastEnd Blackjack features an online high scoreboard that allow you to compare your skills against other players from around the world. So come see if your the best by downloading our free Blackjack video game software using the download button located on this page. Basic Rules The player draws cards to an initial two card hand with the object of bringing the total hand value as close as possible to 21 without exceeding it.

"Good, NOT great................"
Version: LastEnd Blackjack 2.6.1
runs well, completes transactions well, attractive interface, responsive.........
does NOT allow splitting pairs, frustrating for anyone with experience at the real life game.......
good in most instances, but not great due to missing component of real play.
"Dead On Arrival"
Version: LastEnd Blackjack 2.3.3
Looks nice but....
Doesn't like XP!!!
"too much Junk with it..!!"
Version: LastEnd Blackjack 2.3.3
never got there
too many Addons and tool-bars
"Not a real Blackjack game."
Version: LastEnd Blackjack 1.5
Loads fast and requires very few resources. And, oh yeah, it's free.
Doesn't conform to real Blackjack rules. Dealer does not always hit/stand when it should. No option to split pairs. Not really a good Blackjack simulation.
It's fun in its own right, but not good for an actual casino experience.
"Simple and Fun!"
Version: LastEnd Blackjack 1.4
Easy to use
None that I have discovered
This is a must have for people that enjoy blackjack. Oh and by the way...I have the highest score so challenge me if you will!
