Here is a program called Blackjack for the 32K BBC micro. This program allows the user to play the computer at a game of Pontoon. The aim of the game of course is to make your cards total 21 or as near that as possible, but without exceeding you bust.

You both start with 100 and when your first card is dealt you bet on it, and another one is deault. You can then stick with what you have got by pressing the Space bar, or twist to get another card by pressing the Return key or buy another card, thus increasing your stake, by pressing B. If you go bust then the computer takes your bet.

When you stick the computer then has its go, and depending on the value of its cards, you either win or lose that hand.
