Isn’t it strange that no matter how sound your strategy is at the blackjack table, the dealer seems to beat you every time, seemingly hitting 21 whenever necessary? Well, the Palms has found a way for you to keep some of that money in your pocket, while still getting your gaming fix with its new Fantasy Blackjack.
The game is for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and it takes basic elements from fantasy sports, with winning the most virtual dollars from other players in your league as the objective. One player can become commissioner of a league and invite other friends to participate. The commissioner establishes season details such as duration of the league (up to 90 days), and the basic rules such as number of decks in the shoe, minimum and maximum bets, payouts, double-down rules and when the dealer hits.
Players form their own leagues or join multiple leagues, and the game allows players to see pictures of other players at the blackjack table, making it more interactive than other blackjack apps.
Palms Fantasy Blackjack is available as a free download online in the iPhone App Store, and players must be at least 17 years old. Go to
