I’ve written a beginner’s guide to winning cash with Solitaire!, one of the other popular games in the Pocket7Games app, and today I want to turn to another one of their popular games: 21 Gold. As you may suspect from the name, 21 Gold is based on the rules of Blackjack. Nevertheless, it’s a whole different game, where you try to create as many stacks of cards leading to 21 points as possible. Below, I’ll get into the details of how to play the game, but rest assured that it’s fast-paced, fun, and can bring you a pretty bundle of cash, too.
How to play 21 Gold with Pocket7Games
As with all other games in the Pocket7Games app, you play a game of 21 Gold against one opponent. You each play the exact same deck. A game lasts 5 minutes or ends when you’re out of cards – whichever comes first. The goal is to create a stack of cards that is exactly 21 points, using the Blackjack points system – cards 2 through 9 keep their worth, cards 10, J, Q, and K are all 10 points, and the Ace is 1 or 11, whichever works in your favor.
There are four positions for these stacks, so you can build a maximum of four stacks at the same time. Your score is measured in points. You receive XX points when you clear a deck, but there are other ways to score extra points, too. Creating a blackjack, which is when you combine an Ace with 10 points, gives you a bonus, as does clearing two or more decks after another.
Using five cards in one stack automatically clears it (regardless of how many points the stack has), and gives you a bonus of XX points, too. The Jack works as a wild card, and immediately clears any deck you put it on.
How to win money playing 21 Gold!
There are a few ways to win money playing 21 Gold, but they all involve cash games. These cash games are a separate category of games where you either stake Tickets to win cash or use your bonus cash to immediately enter a cash game. As with all the other games, depositing money is the fastest way to win money in Pocket7Games, and this money will give you more choice in the cash games you want.
For free players, there are still different options to win cash. There is a free daily tournament with a usual $55 prize pool in bonus cash, a Speedy Skirmish tournament where 128 players compete for a $1 top prize (and several Ticket prizes), and a one-off cash game where you enter with 8.000 Tickets for a chance to win $ 0,60 – the entry fee for a Beginner cash game.
Where to get the Pocket7Games app
You can download the Pocket7Games app in the app store. The app is free, and you can play all the games for free, as well. If you find yourself winning some real cash playing 21 Gold, you simply go to your profile to withdraw your winnings – you can start withdrawing once you’ve won at least $2.
