Version 3.2

Ever been on a hot streak while playing and that one round just messed it all up? Wish there was a way to redo a round?

Well wish no more! This version adds in a new ability to redo rounds. On the Summary Screen is a new button called “Redo Round”, and it does exactly what it says. If round 1 was perfect and round 2 bombed, hit the Redo Round button and play a whole new round 2! And it works for any round, even when the game is over. So you can replay round 3 in normal play, or replay a round that would normal end the unlimited play.

This new feature is available as consumable in-app purchases. You have the option to purchase 3 or 10 redoes at a time (10 being the better pricing option). You get 1 free round redo the first time you start up this new version to test out.

Version 3.0

Welcome to BlackJack Run Lite 3.0!

Before we get to all the exciting details, let us have a quick conversation about version 2.0. Yes, we know we messed up a good thing. The masses had spoken, and it was pretty universally shouted that the interface changes were bad. For this we apologize profusely. We hope that the new interface in version 3.0 reminds you of what you fell in love the first time you picked up BlackJack Run. Please just think of version 2.0 as the awkward teenage years.

Now, with that out of the way… on to the all the exciting changes in version 3.0:
