Referring to the following pontoon rules at Genting:
1) Dealer draws to hard 16 or soft 17
2) Only allow surrender if dealer's first card is an Ace or any Picture card
3) No hand can be split more than thrice into more than 4 hands
4) For Ace pair split, Player can only split once and draw only one additional card for each hand
5) Double down allowed on first two cards
6) Surrender after doubling down allowed
Payouts
5 cards totalling 21: 3 to 2
6,7,8 mixed suits: 3 to 2
7,7,7 mixed suits: 3 to 2
6 cards totalling 21: 2 to 1
6,7,8 same suits (except Spades): 2 to 1
7,7,7 same suits (except Spades): 2 to 1
7 or more cards totalling 21: 3 to 1
6,7,8 all Spades: 3 to 1
7,7,7 all Spades: 3 to 1

Is the Pontoon basic strategies from Wizard of Odds suitable for the above rules?

See https://wizardofodds.com/games/spanish-21/ or https://wizardofodds.com/games/pontoon/australian/ . Note a Spanish deck has 10's removed.

Hopefully one of these describe your game.
