Describe your issue in detail here.
IM GETTING AN ERROR. What’s wrong with my code?

  **Your code so far**
let count = 0;

function cc(card) {
// Only change code below this line
switch(card) {
  case 2: 
  case 3: 
  case 4: 
  case 5: 
  case 6: 
   count++;
   break;
  case 10: 
  case "J"
  case "Q"
  case "K"
  case "A"
   count --;
   break; 
}

var holdbet = 'hold'
if (count >0) [
holdbet = 'bet' 
return count +""+ holdbet;
]

return "Change Me";
// Only change code above this line
}

cc(2); cc(3); cc(4); cc(5); cc(6);

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Counting Cards

Link to the challenge:

Lots of things wrong:

Case sensitive string matters.
You don’t have a space in the return; it’s an empty string.
You are missing colons in the switch statement.
You are using square brackets in the if statement.
Your return of the count + text will only trigger during the if condition.

Fixed. Thank you Jimbalin!
