Basic JavaScript - Counting Cards

Tell us what’s happening:
Hello! Is my code really wrong? Because when I call the following numbers that I am failing onto the console.log, it gives me the 1 Bet and 1 Bet. It’s just weird.

What am I doing wrong? Thank you!

  • Failed:Cards Sequence 2, J, 9, 2, 7 should return the string 1 Bet

  • Failed:Cards Sequence 2, 2, 10 should return the string 1 Bet

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:
  return (count = count + 1) + " Bet";
  case 7:
  case 8:
  case 9:
  return (count = count) + " Hold";
  case 10:
  case "J":
  case "Q":
  case "K":
  case "A":
  return (count = count - 1) + " Hold";
}
  // Only change code above this line
}
console.log(cc(2,"J",9,2,7))
cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc('K'); cc('A');

Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Counting Cards

Link to the challenge:

The value of the card tells you how to update the count, but doesn’t have anything to do with Hold or Bet.
