The 21 Blitz app for iOS is a unique blend of 21 (Blackjack) and Solitaire, designed to challenge your card game skills and offer the potential for real money play. The Penny Hoarder rates it as one of the 21 Games That Pay Real Money. Here’s our review:

Gameplay: The core of 21 Blitz is to create stacks that total 21 using a blend of blackjack and solitaire rules. Players are dealt cards and must strategically place them in one of five lanes, aiming to reach 21 without busting. The game includes a three-minute timer, adding an element of urgency. It’s accessible to players of all experience levels, providing an intriguing twist on familiar card games. This makes it an enjoyable challenge for both seasoned card game players and novices.

Cash Tournaments: 21 Blitz offers both free play and cash competition options. The cash tournaments require an entry fee, starting as low as 60 cents. The amount you can win varies based on your rank and level within the game. Prizes in these tournaments can range from $1 to $20, and as players gain experience, they can access competitions with potentially higher payouts.

Practice Games: Players are encouraged to practice their skills in free games using the in-game virtual currency, Z coins. This practice is crucial for understanding the game’s mechanics and strategizing for cash tournaments.

Cashing Out: Winnings can be cashed out using PayPal, Apple Pay, and credit cards. However, there’s a minimum deposit requirement of $10 to play in the Head to Head or Tournament modes for larger rewards.

Legitimacy and Risk: 21 Blitz, developed by Tether Studios, is a legitimate platform for earning cash prizes, with players winning significant amounts weekly. However, it’s crucial to recognize the risks involved. The game requires skill, and there’s no guarantee of winning. Players should be mindful of the financial risk, as losing a tournament means losing the entry fee.

User Reviews: The app has high ratings on the Apple App Store and the Samsung Galaxy Store, indicating a generally positive reception from users. However, experiences vary, with some players expressing concerns over the challenge of winning significant amounts and the potential for losing money.

Bottom Line: 21 Blitz is an exciting blend of card games, offering more than just casual gameplay. It’s a competitive platform where skill can lead to cash rewards. As with any real-money game, it’s important to play responsibly and understand the risks involved.

About our TPH Ratings: The Penny Hoarder bases its game ratings on app store reviews and our team’s experiences and insights. We score 1-5 stars overall and for each of three factors: engaging gameplay, the app’s design quality and your chances to win money. Our ratings bear similarities to the app store user reviews but may differ, especially since we’re emphasizing the chance to win money more than many users might. Here’s what we mean by each factor:

  • Engaging gameplay: How fun is the game, and for how long? Is it addictively fun?
  • Design quality: How intuitive is the interface? Are the graphics and controls high-quality? Does the design add to your enjoyment, or does it frustrate you? Does the app ever freeze up or overload you with ads? These are all important factors in design quality.
  • Chance to win money: All of the games on our list offer a legitimate chance to win money, but some are better than others. We take off points if we see multiple reports of a low chance of winning, and for payout difficulties or delays.
