Blackjack 40

I'm creating a blackjack 40 game for my class. The code should output "BLACKJACK!" only once at the start if the player hits 40. The player will win 20$ once they hit blackjack. How would i change this code to make it only for the first hand.


if (total == 40) {
cout << "BLACKJACK 40!" << endl;
cout << "Player wins 20 dollars" << endl;
money += 20;
}

Do you have a variable counting how many hands have been played?

> How would i change this code to make it only for the first hand.
if (total == 40 && playedHands == 1)
No i haven't created a variable for playedHands. How would i creat one that would work efficiently for the whole game?

Well if your main is something really simple like
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
int main ( ) {
  char again;
  do {
    Blackjack game;
    game.play();
    cout << "Do you want to play again?";
    cin >> again;
  } while ( again == 'y' );
}


Then this seems easy enough.

int main ( ) {
  char again;
  int playedHands = 0;
  do {
    playedHands++;
    Blackjack game(playedHands);
    game.play();
    cout << "Do you want to play again?";
    cin >> again;
  } while ( again == 'y' );
}


But if you have a sprawling mass of spaghetti code, then maybe your first task is to clean up what you have before you start adding more features to it.
