BlackJack – the basics

BlackJack – What you need to know

BlackJack has relatively small house edge, and following few simple steps, you can reduce it from 1-2 percent to 0.5 percent.

And house edge is a term used to describe the mathematical advantage that the game has over you as you play over time.


Basic Strategy

Memory. That is your best help in this game. But we are not talking about counting the cards, regular players usually never make it as card counter, but there is several other simpe rules, that can give you larger possibilities to beat the dealer.

  • Stand when your hand is 12-16 when the dealer has 2-6.
  • Hit when your hand is 12-16 when the dealer has 7-Ace
  • Always split Aces and 8s
  • Double 11 versus the dealer’s 2-10
  • Hit or double Aces-6

And what about insurance? Most players dont need to risk with this, unless you are counting the cards. Insurance is essentially another new bet and is based on whether the dealer has blackjack or not. Generally the house has almost 6 percent advantage over the player with an insurance bet.

Also check always the dealer’s up card, is it bad (2-6) or good (7-A). What the dealer has makes the difference what action you should take.

One good advice to remember is not to sit on the first seat. Sitting further down will give you more time to review your hand and your strategy.


Play responsible and within your limits

Set a limit how much your ok with losing without limiting how much you win. Some statistic reveals, that around 75 percent of players in casino will be winning at some point, but only few percent of them go home as a winner. If you are a losing streak, move on. Never gamble and try to recoup your losses.
