Not "bee bee blackjack" but "buh-buh-blackjack"...
It's Blackjack using Backbone.js and Bootstrap, along with other neat tools I mention at the bottom. Hope you enjoy playing it!

To Run Tests (jasmine)
I had a lot of fun writing this. Picked up some nifty tools for the first time and enjoyed fiddling with the UI to make it more playable. I also learned that I didn't know much about the actual rules of Blackjack before besides trying not to go over 21. Now I want to try my luck in Vegas. :)
- Shuffle animation
- High scores/averages/crazy stats
- Have the chips accumulate on the table over time (assuming you're up and not down). I think this would feel more gratifying and more real-world like.
Backbone.js - My first backbone project from scratch. Fun.
Bootstrap, from Twitter - For fluidity and generally making life easier. First time using it, definitely a fan.
underscore.js - My first time really diving into underscore, pretty handy esp with Backbone collections.
Jasmine - Still my favorite JS test framework out there.
jQuery - Yeah
icanhaz.js - Simple templating
Subtle Patterns - For the table and bg images.
selfthinker - For inspiration on the CSS playing cards.
proz0r - For inspiration on the CSS betting chips
Paypal - I hope someone buys more credits... also, I wanted to use Square but there's no online payment API (yet)
Apple - For being awesome (and producing my trusty dusty MacBook)
