Final Fantasy Wiki

Blackjack is a minigame in Final Fantasy IX based on the real-world Blackjack card game. The game can be accessed at the end of the game, once The End screen is displayed and the "Prelude" plays.

In the PlayStation version, the following sequence must be entered to play:

R2 L1 R2 R2 Up X Right Circle Down Triangle L2 R1 R2 L1 Square Square Start

In subsequent versions, it can be accessed directly from the title screen once the game has been beaten.

The dealer deals out of two decks and stands on 17, and the game begins with a bankroll of 1,000. Once the match is over, the player will be taken back to the "The End" screen, and must execute the code again to play.

The joker, jack, queen and king use images of Final Fantasy IX characters, such as Shiva and Fat Chocobo.

Launching the game and playing at least one hand of blackjack in the latest versions earns the achievement/trophy Taking the Black.
