The objective of Pontoon is for a player to come
as close to 21 without going over, while still having a higher
number than the dealer. Prior to receiving any cards, the player
must place a wager. Once the wager is made, the player is dealt
two cards face up. The dealer is also dealt two cards. If the
total value of the player’s cards is closer to 21 than
the dealer, the player wins as much as he wagered. The player
wins if the dealer goes over 21.
