This was a project I did for C# Programming School

Destined to replace those oh-too-flashy Black Jack derivatives that have come out over the years, this minimalist implementation is a breath of fresh air! -- PC Magazine.

What!  This program is FREE!??  A crime, that's what it is!  Someone slap the developer around until he starts showing some sense and charging for this gem of genius! -- Gamasutra


+ a smart-ass card Dealer
+ a functional card Class in the source code
+ ability to place bets of differing amounts based upon the first card you're dealt
+ intuitive GUI
+ source code: download link

Planned Features

+ I may add option for Vegas casino music
+ May add option to change starting Max cash available to player
+ Add ability to whip out a pistol and waste the smart-ass Dealer
+ An option for the Dealer to cheat by using a marked deck of playing cards.

I would appreciate suggestions for future features of the program.


NANY 2011 Release: BlackJack



Download and run the Setup installer. Alternatively, download the ZIP file and extract BlackJack.exe wherever you wish. Keep the directory structure intact when unzipping.  Run the program.

Using the Application

The GUI is super-intuitive.


Use the uninstall Program Files menuitem; or, if you didn't use the setup installer, just delete the extracted file.

No registry entries or INI files are written by the Black Jack program itself.

Known Issues


Unfortunately the minimal NET 2.0 requirement is false (on my XP SPIII), the minimal requirement appears to be NET 4.0.

Come to think of it...when you include a attachment to a reply on a post here in DC, there is a counter that says how many times the attachment is downloaded. I believe that was one of your questions in IRC. If there is code like that for the forum post replies, then I assume it can be used for an attachment in the original post as well.

Thanks, Shades, I fixed the entry under "requirements".

great :up:

i want to say that i think the real value of this is that it includes the source code, so C# coders can play with it and adapt it, etc.  very nice of you to provide that  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

My pleasure to provide source code.  I may use this project to do a series of C# web-lessons, showing the incremental development of the project, from start to completed app.

Mouser, I carefully went through the source code, and refactored.  If you look at my latest post under Assignment 5, you'll see a summary of changes I've made.
