Blackjackist App Review

If you’ve ever wanted to learn blackjack on Facebook or Twitter, the Blackjackist app is a good place to start. Blackjackist provides realistic casino blackjack with the ability to exchange chips with poker, roulette, and baccarat games created by the same company. This app, which is available on Google Play and the Apps Store, presents a classic 8-deck game of blackjack with the option to play with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter.

Players who insist on high visual quality should love this game. Blackjackist has the best graphics of any blackjack app I’ve found on the Apps Store. Gameplay is smooth and intuitive. Use a few taps to play an entire hand while chatting among friends. Blackjackist is the #1 rated gaming app on the Apps Store with 500,000 unique users each day.

Gameplay was fluid and engaging on my iPhone. Some reviewers complain about the dealer beating them too much, but people tend to see patterns in random results. In my experience, the game produces the kind of volatility you would expect in a live game of blackjack. Blackjackist has a 4.7 rating at the iTunes Apps Store with over 36.2k ratings and a 4.5 rating on Google Play with over 52k reviews.

Best and Worst Game Features – Blackjackist App

Browse through the following game features to preview what you can expect. My favorite aspect of the game is its ability to play on Facebook. You can interact with other players on Facebook and Twitter using the live chat feature. If you get tired of trash talk, you can disable notifications and play solo.

Great Features

  • Complete daily quests to get free chips.
  • Rated 12+ with Family Sharing up to 6 family members.
  • Realistic 3D Graphics.
  • 31 languages for players on 5 continents.
  • Dealer stays on all 17
  • Smooth interface with one-tap hitting, splitting, standing, and doubling.
  • Fair hand dealing guaranteed with an RNG certificate.

Drawbacks

  • Shuffle every hand in an 8-deck game. No card counting.
  • Some players will find the “smiley face” player avatars annoying.
  • Reviewers claim the dealer gets 10 too much, but I haven’t noticed it. All casino games produce a certain number of disgruntled players.
  • No surrender rules.

Blackjackist is available for Android, IOS, and Microsoft 10. The application is frequently updated. The game was released on October 12, 2016 and is already on its 18th update at the moment. The approximate size of the file is 293 MB for mobile devices and 144 MB for desktop computers. It has the standard photosensitive seizure warning, but otherwise has no warning for users.

Blackjackist In-App Purchases

Blackjackist is a free casino gaming app which allows in-app purchases. This app is for pure fun and entertainment. Under no circumstances will you win real money. On the positive side, it’s a free app, so you never have to spend money on Blackjackist. Impatient players who don’t want to wait another day can use the in-app purchases, which range from $2.99 to $99.99.

Pokerist Texas Poker and Other Games

Kama Games has three other casino apps: Pokerist Texas Poker, Roulettist, and Baccarist. Create a single account and download all four applications to use contacts and achievements in all four. Chips are interchangeable between the various apps, so skill card players can learn blackjack or roulette with the chips they won at poker. If you get tired of blackjack, players can enjoy several different games by switching to Pokerist, Baccarist, or Roulettist.

  • Texas Hold’em Poker: The most popular type of poker, found on most of the tv tournaments and everywhere online.
  • Omaha Poker: A more dynamic and complicated game with four hole cards instead of two.
  • Roulette: French, American, and European roulette added before Roulettist was released.
  • Baccarat: Classic “Punto Banco” baccarat like you’d play in Las Vegas or Macau.

Player Reviews for Blackjackist

If you’re considering downloading Blackjackist and want to see the player reviews, I’ve culled some of the most useful and revealing player comments. With minor editing for grammar and clarity, I’ve included good and bad ratings from Android and IOS users, as well as examples of responses from the developer, Kama Games.

Good Reviews on Google Play – Blackjackist

I really love this game. You can tell a lot of effort [went] into making this. I had it on my other phone, so now I had to get it again. [Suggestion] maybe add a few more games, but all the games are great.” – Gabe Z

Best game ever very realistic sometime you get mad, but it’s a pretty good game.” – LuisFernando Mancia

Best multi game, casino based, platform on the web. An app not focused on draining your bank accounts.” – Spencer Linn

Bad Reviews on Google Play – Blackjackist

How can anyone love this game? The dealer has so many 10s. We all keep getting 15, 14, or 16. Something [is] wrong here. You wouldn’t see that in a casino.” – Max Weiss

“Dealer gets 21…for 6 games out of 15! Waste of time app.” – Chua MT

Good Reviews at the IOS Apps Store – Blackjackist

I like this app the best. I keep reading how ‘rigged’ it is but I don’t agree. Feels like the real thing to me. By playing my strategy I’m able to keep ahead.” — JackHarperTech49

Very realistic graphics and a good time killer for blackjack enthusiasts.” – Anshul Vup

Bad Reviews at the IOS Apps Store – Blackjackist

I’ve been playing blackjack for over 40 years and have never seen a game so one sided in my life. On a recent series of games, the dealer had 15 or less on 29 occasions.” — JW Melon

“I have played at casinos many a times and have never seen such a bad dealing of cards. I can assure that it’s an unfair play. The game tends toward losing your coins in order to make you buy coins.” — PeaMoe

Developer Responses to Criticism

Kama Games responses to player feedback and tries to help those with issues. A customer representative scours the reviews on Google Play and the Apps Store to help their customers. Here’s an instance on each site.

Was a cool game until I decided to log in with FB. Deleted everything. All of my money, progress, and friends.” — Max Weiss on Google Play

Hello! Please send us a reply to support@kamagames.com. Our specialists will help you to return your previous account” — Kama Games response


The game, itself, does play fairly realistically. At least for me. However, I can only give this app one star due to their non-acceptance of my avatar.” — Mike MC on iTunes Apps Store

We’d like to offer our sincere apologies for any inconveniences caused by this issue. We’d like to make this right in whatever way we can. Would it be possible to send us an email directly at support@kamagames.com?” — Kama Games response

Good Practice for Playing at Mobile Casinos

Blackjackist may not be the best app, but it is a very good game to play for fun. It also has the added perks of showing you what playing at an online casino is like. Blackjackist offers you the chance to practice playing these popular casino games for free, being able to develop the skills (or luck) needed to win big! For those that want to test their luck with real money, they should always search for and play at a reputable and safe online casino.
