Good Mac game, thank you! Clean and fast to load and play, the lack of bloatware is much appreciated, and seperates this game from the pack of others that have so much overhead-fluff to deal with.

I have not noticed any "sweetspots of 17", or any other patterns. Gameplay feels real enough to still lose a bundle of cash in short time!...

Thanks again for this free game! It's clean, it's Mac, 'nuff said.

Nice game. Find that 17 is the sweet spot. The dealer tends to bust.

It's very clear the developer listens to his users. All the suggestions that have been made here have been implemented ASAP.

I'm up $600. If only I were so lucky in Vegas.....


Thanks for the app!

Very good blackjack program, except for one thing. It would be nice if the dealer showed when he/she had blackjack before 'hitting' and/or 'standing' begins.

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately I didn't have time to add this function in v2.0, but I will add it in v2.0.1, and hopefully release that update in a few weeks.

Great game. Perfect for the train ride to work. I'd like to make two suggestions.

On my 17 inch MacBook, the card are really small. Any way you can scale the app up 50%?

Is there a way have the shortcuts without having to hold the command key? My thumb is getting a cramp!

Thanks,
Michael

Thanks for your comments. It is my intention to make the cards at least twice the size, and better quality in v2.0 of the application, which will be released in a few months.

I shall also look into allowing play by pressing letters without the Apple key. Bear in mind that a lot of the functions can be accessed using the return key.
