Black Jack is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Multi Screen series on February 15, 1985. It is a dual-screen single-player Game & Watch with a maroon body. It opens like a compact, with an upper and lower screen.
Game A is a blackjack game. The dealer’s hand is on the upper screen and the player’s hand is on the bottom screen. Four buttons are available: double down, bet ×10/hit, bet ×1/stand and enter. The player starts with a $500 bankroll and can bet up to $100 each hand. Pair splitting is not allowed, and bets must be locked before shuffling is done, contrary to real-world blackjack rules.
In Game B, the player starts with $500 as five numbers cycle in a random pattern on the bottom screen. Pressing the enter button causes the numbers to stop one at a time. There is a $50 reward if all five stop on the same number, or a deduction of $25 if not.
