How to play Zackjack + Official Rules

zj-iphone6sZACKJACK is “Blackjack…with a kick!”

The objective of the game is to put together three hands of cards, each equaling 21 points—which we call a “Zackjack.”

Face cards (kings, queens, and jacks) are counted as ten points. Aces are counted as 1 point or 11 points, dependent upon the situation. All other cards are counted as the numeric value shown on the card.

At the start of a game, you will be dealt three random cards from a standard 52-card deck. Each of these three cards will represent the start of three separate hands. You will now begin drawing cards, one at a time, from the deck.

Each time you draw a card, you have the option of placing it on any of your three hands.  Click one of the three “arrow” buttons to choose which hand you want to place your card on (again, with the objective of producing a 21 for each hand).

Alternately, you may discard (“burn”) a card drawn, up to five times per game.  Your first two “burns” for each game is free.  You can burn additional cards with TCredits or with “matches” (which may be purchased between games and are less expensive than TCredits).

If on any of your hands you place a card that puts you over 21 for that hand, you “bust” and the game is over. Note that you can also end a game before busting if desired in order to “bank” all of your points.

Special Notes:

  1. Any hand with six cards representing 21 points or less scores a de facto 21, regardless of the cards in that hand.
  2. You can also end a game before busting if you wish to in order to bank all of your points.

PRIZE POINTS

While the primary objective of each game is to score three hands of 21 (a Zackjack), with each card drawn you’re also earning a separate set of “Prize Points”* (points for earning recognition and prizes). Prize Points consist of the values of the cards you draw (e.g. 10 for a face card, or the numeric value shown on the card).

There are also eight ways to earn BONUS Prize Points:

  • For the first 21 scored in a game, you’ll earn 50 bonus Prize Points
  • For the second 21 scored in a game, you’ll earn 100 bonus Prize Points
  • For a Zackjack, you’ll earn 500 bonus Prize Points.
  • For any all-red 21, add an additional 100 bonus Prize Points
  • For any all-black 21, add an additional 100 bonus Prize Points
  • For any 6-card 21, add an additional 250 bonus Prize Points
  • For a 6-card Zackjack, add an additional 500 bonus Prize Points
  • Add a timed bonus of up to 180 bonus Prize Points. You’ll start each game with 180 points, with 3 points deducted for each second of game time. In other words, the faster you play, the more timed bonus Prize Points you’ll get added to your score! Note: A minimum of one 21 must be scored in the game to earn these Prize Points.

Special Note: All bonus points combine. Example: Achieving a Zackjack consisting of all-red cards would score you 950 total Prize Points.


PRIZES

  • Each time you score a Zackjack, you’ll receive a free entry in the Daily Crown drawing for the following day where you can win valuable gift certificates, MRP (Member Rewards Points), mighty TCredits, and more! You get 152 chances to win with each Daily Crown entry! Note: Daily Crown entries that can be won via Zackjack are limited to your designated Prime 10* games each day (so up to 10 bonus Daily Crown entries per day).

Tips for winning Uber-Picks

UPlogoOVERVIEW

If you love sports, you’ll love playing Uber-Picks!  By playing Uber-Picks alongside your favorite sports, you’ll add even more excitement and enjoyment to being a sports fan!

The objective of Uber-Picks is to tally the highest score possible by correctly picking winning teams of sports of your choosing, but that’s only the start.  You’ll maximize your score by strategically assigning “Confidence Points” to each of your picks (the more confident you are of a pick, the more points you should assign).

For each game you pick correctly, you’ll earn the number of points you assigned to that game.  Note: Games that end in a tie or are cancelled will be scored as a correct pick.

Uber-Picks also features five “Sidekicks”–which you can use to boost your score even further and add even more fun to playing.

Choose the Uber-Picks sports of your choice to play from our games index HERE.

PRIZES

Win shares of the big weekly Zackpots by posting one of the 50 highest scores (the total of the points you’ve assigned to winning teams, plus Sidekick Bonus Points).  Note: A TCredit must be used with your entry to qualify for Zackpots.

Each tab displays a different question, along with the cost (if any) to play. Simply enter your answer in the available field and click Save. You can choose one, several, or all of the Sidekick tabs to play!  Any points you win playing the Sidekicks is added to your total score.

6. Revisit the dashboard (you may want to bookmark it for easy retrieval) throughout the week to see how you’re doing (games are automatically updated throughout each game).  When the last game is concluded, you’ll be sent an email notice if your total score is amongst the top 50 highest scores.

DOMINATE THE LEADERBOARD

The Uber-Picks Leaderboard automatically tracks and provides rankings for points you score playing all Uber-Picks contests (for both individual sports and all sports combined).

Note: So that all players have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, points are reduced by 20% every 30 days.

Being amongst the top 500 on any Uber-Picks Leaderboard also earns you badges (see following BADGES section for more information).

BADGES

deffghda.1. An Uber-Picks contest entry earns you the “In it to win it!” badge–yours until the contest ends.  Tip: By participating regularly in the weekly Uber-Picks contests, you can keep possession of this badge continually.  Note that once you’ve earned an Uber-Picks WINNER badge, you’ll no longer see this badge (it is supplanted by the Winner badge).

2. Posting one of the 50 highest scores for any Uber-Picks contest earns you the WINNER badge (or an upgraded “X-Times Winner” version of the badge) for that individual sports category. Make the top 50 three times to add bronze trim to your badge. Make the top 50 five times to add silver trim to your badge.  Make the top 50 ten times to add gold trim to your badge.

3. There are also Uber-Picks Leaderboard badges for each sports category and for all sports combined. The minimum leaderboard rank to receive a Uber-Picks Leaderboard badge is 500. Add bronze trim by achieving a top 200 rank. Add silver trim by achieving a top 50 rank. Add gold trim by achieving a top 10 rank.  You can view the Uber-Picks Leaderboard HERE.

HOW DID I DO?

Want to see how you did in a past week, such as which teams you picked to win and how many Confidence Points you assigned to each game?  To get this information, simply go to our WINNERS page and click on the sport/contest date you’re wanting to review.  From this link you’ll be provided with your full entry information (picks, points, etc.).

DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!

Each week, you can add three quick and easy Bonus Points to your total score by voting for 5-10 games that you’d like to see Uber-Picks use for the following week. The games that receive the most votes will be the games you’ll be picking the winners for in the next week.  Note: Voting is not available for sports where there are 16 or less games a week.

Grab your “LineUP,” the remote, and hit the couch!

Once you’ve made your picks, be sure to print out a copy of your Uber-Picks LineUP (link located at the top, right side of the dashboard).  Your LineUp includes all your picks, all your Sidekick predictions, space to mark your wins, and lists each game and their start times, too. Perfect for following along from your couch or on the run.  Your LineUP also includes fun stats like:

  • The percentage of TripleClicks members who made the same picks you did
  • The average Confidence Points assigned by all TripleClicks members for each game
  • Your current ranking in any Uber-Picks leagues you’re participating in
  • Your overall record
  • Your leaderboard ranks for all Uber-Picks sports
  • and more!
