Is WH pontoon faulty?

    I was just playing Pontoon at William Hills, and twice in just a few hands it 'auto-stood' me on soft 21.

    Surely it shouldn't do this?
    The first one was really annoying as it was a 4-card 11/21, and I wanted to buy a 5th card!
    The 2nd one took the P, because the dealer went on to make 21 as well (4-3-4-10) - so I lost. :(

    I'm 95% sure Intercasino Pontoon doesn't do this, even though it's the 'same' software. :what:

    Does anyone know which is correct? :confused:

    I'm not familiar with Pontoon, but why would you hit on 21?

    Because the correct strategy is to double on soft 21 if you can, otherwise stand with 3 cards and hit with 4 cards, see You must register/login in order to see the link..

    When crypto first released pontoon, it auto-stood on soft 21. Many people complained, and it was fixed.

    At the beginning of this month I played pontoon at

    Intercasino
    Omni
    Sands of the Carribean
    TotalBet
    Littlewoods

    The game was working fine (no auto-stand) at all of these casinos.

    It's possible that this was never corrected at William Hill.

    You should be able to buy a 5th card to make a guaranteed five-card-trick, which pays out at 2/1 - so you would end up winning 4 times as much money as with the 21.

    bpb's post above confirms my suspicion - although all those casino's are all Crypto's, the software package does not play the same. So this could mean (just for example :rolleyes: ) that Intercasino's Blackjack is rigged, whereas William Hills is not.....

    I had this same problem after I reinstalled Intercasino from a CD, fortunately, the auto-stand on soft 21 worked in my favour, I would have lost otherwise. The casino upgraded automatically after I logged out and pontoon worked correctly.

    I tried to see if WH has the problem, but I busted out so quickly this month that I did not get a single soft 21. (I lost 25 units in 34 hands. :( Ouch!)
