Make sure you are reading this headline correctly – we’re talking about playing blackjack with the rapper 50 Cent, and not .50¢ blackjack tables. The longtime hit-maker and friend of Eminem has always loved the game of blackjack, even long before he was “In Da Club” he was in the casino playing 21.
The new Facebook game has 50 Cent offering you advice on how to play blackjack, and giving you feedback and encouragement throughout the journey. Players can create new characters and totally customize them however they want. You can even buy your avatar new swag in 50 Cent’s virtual store with your casino winnings.
Cool features of the game include group chat for everyone seated at the blackjack table, as well as a Heat Meter that displays how good each player is doing. The Heat Meter rises when players are hitting blackjacks and increasing their wins, and based on our experiences with the game, players are quite friendly and enjoy a dealer bust – just like at a land based casino.
In keeping with the style of most new social games, players can buy one another gifts from the online store such as non-alcoholic drinks and snacks. Also, you can of course choose to spend real money on game cheats so you can manipulate the game to your liking. These “boosts” include such things as seeing what the next card will be and illegally split your cards. Although this game was entertaining for a while, we ended up missing the real money appeal of traditional online blackjack after a bit of time. That said, this game is definitely worth checking out at least once.
