1981 CATALOG DESCRIPTION
Will you let yourself get bluffed out of a pot by a computer?
From the ruffle of the cards . . . to the clinking of the coins . . .to the felt green of the gaming table . . . to the shifty eyes of the dealer, Intellivision has captured the flavor and the color of casino card games.
Play poker! Five card stud or draw. Seven card stud. This dealer plays tough. He raises, drops, even bluffs. Play carefully, because he'd like nothing better than to empty your wallet.
When you've had enough poker, relax with a few hands of blackjack. Play real casino style and double down when you feel hot!
FUN FACT: Because it came free with the Intellivision Master Component during 1980, 1981 and most of 1982, Las Vegas Poker & Blackjack had the most distribution of any Intellivision cartridge: over 1,900,000 shipped by the end of 1982. When it was eventually replaced by Astrosmash as the free cartridge, distribution fell dramatically; only 2,500 Las Vegas Poker & Blackjack cartridges were shipped in the first six months of 1983.
